    • Synopsis
    • High school student Moritaka Mashiro is a gifted illustrator, but lacks ambition and spends his days drifting in mediocrity.
      His uncle, Taro Kawaguchi, a former manga artist for Shonen Jump Weekly created a series that was made into an anime feature, but in the end, the series was cancelled, and Taro died of overwork. Moritaka’s heart is shadowed by his uncle’s tragic fate.
      One day, class genius and aspiring manga writer Akito Takagi asks Moritaka if “he wants team up as manga artists.” Moritaka and Akito work day and night to realize their dream of creating a manga series for Shonen Jump Weekly. Editor Hattori recognizes their potential, but just as they begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel, a formidable rival, Eiji Niizuma, appears.
      With no shortage of up-and-coming rivals, will Moritaka & Akito’s dream of a Jump series ever be realized?!
