School classmates Akito Takagi and Moritaka Mashiro team up to fulfill their dream of creating a hit manga in Bakuman! With their new series, the tentatively-titled Perfect Crime Club, getting the go-ahead for serialization, Ashirogi Muto must now work through New Year’s to get all the details right for its upcoming launch!
They work themselves to the bone to come up with the most engaging characters and clever names, but will their new series about young students pulling off intricate "crimes" be able to top Nizuma Eiji’s popular sci-fi manga +Natural in the rankings?
In volume 11, Mashiro’s childhood crush Azuki Miho is up for a big role in an anime, but there’s a twist—it’s the adaptation of Eiji’s +Natural! Despite Ashirogi Muto’s rivalry with Eiji, will she pounce on the big break or pass to spare Mashiro’s feelings?
A few months after their new series’ serialization begins, Takagi and Mashiro learn that if they can't compete with Eiji Nizuma by their 25th chapter, they’ll be cancelled! They decide to go for broke with a 5-chapter arc, but can their story pack enough punch to beat Eiji?
The best manga about manga continues in Bakuman volume 11, in stores June 5!
