posted on by Sarah Nelkin
Next anime based on Takeshi Obata & Tsugumi Ohba's manga premieres on Saturday

The official page for the third Bakuman. anime series launched last Saturday and began streaming a 20-second preview for the first episode, “Iji to Ketsudan” (Willpower and Decision). The site also updated its character profiles, which lists most of the characters returning from the previous seasons. The site allows people to send digital fan letters with words of encouragement or fan art.

The third series will premiere on Saturday at 5:30 p.m. on the Japanese public broadcaster NHK.

In the original manga from the creators of Death Note, a teenager strives to become a manga artist with the encouragement of two classmates: an aspiring writer and an aspiring voice actress. The focus in the third anime series will be on the creators' new fictional PCP manga as it rises to the top of the magazine readers' popularity surveys.

The manga has been running since 2008, and it inspired the first anime adaptation in fall of 2010. The second anime followed in October of 2011.

Media Blasters licensed the first two television seasons for North America, and released part of the first season.
