Bakuman Wiki

Tears and Tears is the seventh episode of the Bakuman anime. It aired on November 13, 2010.


After a few days sitting together, Moritaka starts communicating with Miho through writing, asking questions like "favorite season" or "favorite food". Realizing that they won't be able to see each other after graduation, Moritaka asks "Why not until our dreams come true?". Upon reading this, Miho begins to cry and remains silent through the rest of class. When the bell rings, Miho gave Moritaka her E-mail address. The next day, Moritaka apologizes for what he said.

Meanwhile at Yueisha, Akira Hattori is debating on whether or not he will submit Moritaka and Akito's manuscript to the monthley award. He sees that the Editor-in-Chief Sasaki and Yujiro Hattori are leaving for Aomori to convince Eiji Niizuma's parents to allow him to live in Tokyo. Section Captain Aida sees Hattori and tells him to submit the entry for the award.
