See if you can match these protags to their anime! And this is not just modern anime, I made sure to include one from each decade starting with the 60s! There’s a mix of popular and less well-known ones!
Please take the quiz and reblog to share your result! It’s fun and it really helps me out!
Summary: Moritaka Mashiro likes to draw, but it’s not what he considers his defining trait. After his uncle, a formerly-popular mangaka, died of overwork trying to replicate his own success, Moritaka never really considered art a serious endeavor. One thing he does take seriously, however, is his crush on his cute classmate Miho Azuki. When the smartest boy in his class, Akito Takagi, finds a sketch Moritaka drew of Azuki, he suggests they team up to create manga together. Moritaka has misgivings at first - trying to break into the field is too big a gamble - but before he knows it, the two grow determined to get their manga into the popular Jump magazine.
Content warnings: a whole lot of sexism, but nothing worse than that

I’ll be honest here - I did not go into Bakuman in good faith. I started it knowing full well about Ohba and Obata’s disdain for women. The series is well-loved and critically acclaimed enough that I’m sure that there’s plenty to like about it, but since I am specifically taking aim at the parts that frustrate and anger me, I’m pretty much blind to those elements. No, I read Bakuman expecting to hate it and, shockingly, was correct.
