Overview[edit | edit source]

The team must decide which genre to choose for their new manga. Miura urges them to draw a gag manga, but Mashiro and Takagi aren't sure they're fit for gag manga's and prefer something more serious which is their forte. In the end they decide to create 2 new one-shots, one funny one to Miura's liking and one more serieus one, more to their liking. They show both Hitman 10 and Future Watch to Miura whom tells them to try to get Hitman 10 serialized. This causes Mashiro to feel like this editor really is a "miss" since according to him, Future Watch is a lot better. In the end it's revealed Ashirogi Muto submitted Future Watch behind his back in the newbie contest, the Monthly Awards, in order to get all the editors, higher-ups and especially the mangaka judge, Niizuma, to read it.
