Bakuman: the latest manga from the creators of Deathnote

Bakuman is a new shonen manga by the creators of Deathnote, Tsugumi Ohba (author) and Takeshi Obata (illustrator). The first chapter was released in Japan just yesterday, August 11, 2008 in Weekly Shonen Jump.

(here's a synopsis...)

The story revolves around two 9th grade boys, namely Mashiro Moritaka, who is a really good artist, and Takagi Akito, an outstanding writer and honor student at their school. At the beginning of the story, we see Mashiro secretly drawing a really good sketch of his crush on his math notebook as he thinks about out how he should live a normal, practical life in the future. Enter Takagi Akito, the smartest kid in Japan (another Yagami Light?) and Mashiro's classmate who accidentally discovers his secret crush from the notebook which Mashiro carelessly left on his desk. Takagi then promises to return the notebook and keep his secret on one condition: if Mashiro agrees to illustrate a manga for him.


WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! Finally!!! Makakatulog  na ko nang mahimbing! Kahapon ko kasi napasa at natapos yung major plate! Whooooohoooooooooo! Tapos na ang kalbaryo sa wakas! Two days of absolutely no sleep! Xet! Natusok pa ang paa ko from a loose nail under one of our drafting tables! I even had to wait until 4 in the afternoon to get my wound cleaned kasi 3-9pm lang ang dorm (or university) clinic, on saturdays so I had to work with a bleeding foot for 5 hours. Hindi naman siya ganun kalala... pero the next day, the nurse discovered that a really small part of the nail was still embeded into my wound and we didn't even notice it until yesterday afternoon! The nurse had to use a needle and tool that looked like a tweezer to take take out the damn thing! Yeesh!! *goosebumps* kinalikot niya kasi yung sugat ko... it was kinda painful and I was lying on the bed with my eyes shut when she did that para hindi ko makita yung needle... takot akooooo.... Inimagine ko kasi yung movie na the patient had to undergo an operation consciously! He couldn't move pero he felt his ribs being cocked open! Yeck! *goosebumps!!!* Pero wait! may exam pa this friday sa Physics tapos next week math exam! Kailan ba talaga ako makapagpapahinga nang tuoly2!!!

My New LJ Account!

Hello everyone!

It's been a long time! This is my new LJ by the way... (I totally forgot my password on my other account and I think there was something wrong with it)

Anyway, sorry I wasn't able to be with you the other saturday. I was just too busy with all our plates and all the money I had that time was a twenty peso bill...

We also have a new bakery, by the way. It's just at the end of N. Torres street... no, it's not anywhere near Central Warehouse, it's on the OTHER end. My sister even mentioned that the SCUISHY once passed by our bakery. It's painted orange and there's usually a yellow pick-up truck parked beside it. It's the only car we have now since the Vios was taken back by the company when my father decided to retire. You can come and visit our bakery if you have time. Just text me ahead of time so that I can be there, too when you arrive!
