In the original manga from the creators of Death Note, a junior high school student strives to become a manga artist with the encouragement of two classmates: an aspiring writer and an aspiring voice actress. The manga has been running since 2008, and it inspired the first anime adaptation in fall of 2010. The second anime followed this past October.
