Whenever I need some motivation, Bakuman always helps!
In my freshman year of college, I remember telling almost everyone that I met that I was studying and working toward becoming one of the most popular comic book writers in the world. I said it so often that my friend suggested that I watch Bakuman. Ever since, I watch Bakuman whenever I need a reminder of my goals and that if I want my dreams to come true, I need to put in the hard work.
Though my goals have changed from being a famous comic book writer to becoming an influential writer and content creator, I still try to match the work ethic of Mashiro and Takagi. Though they represent the ultimate example of great manga writers and artists and work themselves into exhaustion and near-death, they are still encouraging characters that keep me going whenever I get tired of writing.
