Responding to a query about the anime Bakuman., Manga Entertainment tweeted, "It's still going to be released in the UK. Kaze UK have said that it will now be a subtitle-only release due to the cancellation of the title in the USA. Should be more details on this soon."
The anime is based on a manga written by Tsugumi Ohba and drawn by Takeshi Obata — the co-creators of Death Note. The story involves Moritaka Mashiro, a junior high school student, who is persuaded to work towards becoming a manga creator with the encouragement of two classmates.
Viz Media Europe announced that it had acquired the rights to the Bakuman. anime for the U.K. (and several other territories) in March 2012, at which time Kaze said it would be distributing it.
