Bakuman Wiki

Pen and Storyboard (ペンとネーム, Pen to Nēmu) is the name of the third chapter of the Bakuman manga. It was published in Weekly Shōnen Jump on September 1, 2008.


Takagi and Mashiro find supplies, action figures, magazines and manuscripts in his uncle's studio. Takagi takes out some manuscripts that look like drafts. Mashiro explains that you have to draw a name (draft with words and pictures) for the artist, rather than just writing a script. The artist will then change it and give it to an editor. Takagi and Mashiro both want to draw a masculine manga (not something weak or shojo). Takagi asks if he can study some of his uncle's names. Mashiro's goal is to make an anime before they’re 18 for Azuki. Mashiro sees that his uncle was working extremely hard and apologizes to his dad for believing his uncle commit suicide. The determination of his uncle persuades Mashiro to work full-heartedly for manga and Azuki.
