Bakuman Wiki

Release Date and The Night Before (発売日と前夜 Hatsubai-bi to Zen'ya) is the name of the 175th chapter of the Bakuman Manga. It was published in Weekly Shōnen Jump on April 16, 2012.


The Reversi anime premires the next day, with everyone excited about it; Kaya is more excited to know who will watch it, and what kind of commericals will play, since she's watched the sample repeatedly. Moritaka thanks Kaya for giving them the name "Muto Ashirogi" and for all that she's done, leading her to cry in joy. Also, Hattori calls Akito, reaveling that Reversi has finally beaten Zombie Gun in the graphic novel sales, thus making Muto Ashirogi the #1 mangaka; Akito explains that this is his wedding gift to Moritaka.

Miho tells her mother that Moritaka is coming over after the anime airs. Miyuki thinks he's coming to properly ask for Miho's hand in marriage, but Miho tells her that if that was the case, she would have told her a lot sooner. Miyuki then guesses that he may be coming to pick her up for a date, realising that it's her daughter's first date. With a smile, Miyuki jokes that she won't be angry if Miho doesn't come home tommorrow.

All the other characters are shown planning what to do next in their lives, with some being more comical than practical.

That night, Moritka reads his uncle's diary, deciding to fullfill as many of the dreams Nobuhiro wanted to live out with the girl he loved.

Characters in Order of Appearance[]


  • Miyuki says she doesn't mind if Miho doesn't come home from her date the same day. However, what she's implying is a bit too early in their kind of relationship.
  • Most of the characters actualy make their final appearances, with the exception of Moritaka, Miho, Mina, and Miyuki; Takagi and Nobuhiro make flashback or mental image appearances in the final chapter.
