Oh, sounds interesting!

The four-panel manga

Hmmm, ok...

"Japan's cutest manga editors"

Ugh....

as they attempt to realize their dream of launching the #1 manga magazine

...

even though they have zero experience in actually editing manga.

At this point, I seriously facepalmed.

I'm pretty sure I'll give this a shot, only to check if there is actual information about manga editing in the show. Other than that, I have zero interest.

My reaction was pretty much the same as the OP's. I was imagining a Bakuman type series, not a moeblob fest.

Main character is cute but premise seems interesting in concept yet generic in execution.

....Wait, how can they be editors if they have no experience in editing?

It's definitely something I'll check out. Everyone involved is playing to their strengths.

I hope it's as entertaining as Roman and her manga-club in Sket Dance. Those segments always crack me up. I'd watch a spin-off of them.

The title is a very unfortunate portmanteau.

bakuman + k-on = mangirl. Laughing anyway i like dogaboo quite a bit and the designs look cute so i'll give it a shot. also CR news mentioned this will air next year which makes sense since only the first volume is out.

Mangirl... Ladyboy... It's all the same! ^^;

Yeah, when I read the headline, it took me a moment to realize that I mentally mispronounced the word... I still haven't bothered to look at the article, though.

Yeah, the title works a lot better in Japanese than it does in English.

A blurb on the magazine's website says their shooting for a 2013 release.

I'll be glad to see the first episode before I pass judgment like some others in this thread. As long as the comedy is good, I'm in.

Yeah, but the word "man" can also be slang for a certain female panty-parts.

But yeah, they are really scraping the bottom of the barrel coming up with new anime.

This an adaption. They didn't come up with anything.

I understand your point, though. They don't even adapt the good manga, they just go with what will sell among the Otaku the most.
