Bakuman Wiki

Time and Key (時と鍵, Toki to Kagi) is the name of the fifth chapter of the Bakuman Manga. It was published in Weekly Shōnen Jump on September 13, 2008.


Mashiro has been practicing to draw using some manga pens and falls asleep in the exams. He explains the three different kinds of pens he has used G Pens, Kabura Pens, and Maru Pens. He also says that drawing still figures are easy but it's hard to make movement, expressions, and composition. Mashiro is amazed how his Uncle, who didn't use G pens or white-out, became a pro in three years.

For the sake of manga, Mashiro decides to go to Yakusa North High School, because it isn't the best school he will have more time to draw. Takagi figures he should go to Yakusa North as well because if they are drawing manga together, it would be easier if they went to the same school.
