from the highly popular manga, Bakuman, here's the main leads, Takagi Akito and Mashiro Moritaka.
let's start with individual photos first shall we?
Mashiro usually calls him Shujin, an alternative way of reading his given name, Akito (秋人).
one half of Ashirogi Muto, he's in-charge of the storyboard part.
his very confident face.
his, erm, brooding face?
the clouded pair of glasses makes him look even more serious.
he looks alittle weird without the glasses.
but he's actually quite popular among the girls. Kaya-chan is a very lucky girl.
this makes him look scheming. hahaha.
he looks ready to go over to Mashiro's apartment.
better give him a call.
next, we have our second main lead, Mashiro.
Takagi usually calls him Saiko, an alternative reading his given name, Moritaka (最高). i guess Saiko is really easier to call compared to Moritaka. HA!
the other half of Ashirogi Muto, he's in-charge of the artwork.
various views of him at his desk.
looks very concentrated on his drawings.
pinch! he looks a little agitated.
let's take a closer look at his table.
everything had to be painstakingly positioned.
the 2 manga tankoubon used to prop up Mashiro's drawing desk.
a copy of Super Hero Legend and Bakuman.
his super happy face.
AH! he hears someone at the door!
Takagi from before: i'm coming over with the new story.
the new story is finished!
Mashiro: alright! let's take a look.
looking over the story.
the new story looks great!
time to start drawing Mashiro~
eh? what's this?
some role reversal for the duo.
what do you think? do you think they look weird in each others' clothes?
they seem to be having fun though.
lots of fun with this duo. just that it takes a lot of time and patience to set up Mashiro's desk. but it was well worth it!
if only Eiji will be released as a nendoroid, the set would be perfect!
