Bakuman Wiki

Summer and Name is fifth episode of the Bakuman anime. It aired on October 30, 2010.


Recalling when he and Azuki turned back to look at each other at the same time, Mashiro tells Takagi that he and Azuki have been on the same frequency for years, indicating that they are connected without having to say anything about it. Azuki's best friend Kaya Miyoshi goes to Takagi to complain about him telling Azuki about her dream, and as she does so, gives indications of romantic interest in Takagi that Mashiro and Miyoshi notice.

During the summer, Mashiro and Takagi stay at Mashiro's uncle's office, and work on a manga called "The Two Earths". When it is complete, they call the Shonen Jack editorial department.
