This year's 39th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine is announcing on Monday that the third season of the Bakuman. television anime series will premiere on October 6.
Like the previous two anime series, the new one will adapt Takeshi Obata and Tsugumi Ohba's manga about aspiring teenaged manga creators. The focus in the third series will be on the creators' new fictional PCP manga as it rises to the top of the magazine readers' popularity surveys.
The third anime series will retain the staff of the previous series: directors Kenichi Kasai and Noriaki Akitaya, series script editor Reiko Yoshida, and the anime studio J.C. Staff. The original manga ended its run in Japan in April.
