Bakuman Anime Announce FOR REAL
After I posted the Fall Anime 2010 season list a lot of people have been thinking it is fake because of the Bakuman anime announcement. I can’t really blame people who doubted me since at first I thought it was fake too, but the reason I posted that on my blog is because I have done my research and are confident that the list is at least 98% legit.
Here are the info I have found on Bakuman the anime which will be air this fall 2010.
2010’s second issue of Shueisha‘s Weekly Shonen Jumpmagazine is confirming on Monday that a television anime adaptation of Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata‘sBakuman. manga has been green-lit for fall of 2010. It will run on the NHK-Educational channel. More details will be provided in future issues of the magazine.
