Mangaka-san to Assistant-san to The Animation First Impressions – Next Level Manga

 

Mangaka-san to Assistant-san is an interesting and short comedy anime about the perils of making and publishing ero-manga, and the lack of first hand information about females; something Donny has struggled with for years.

Years of “accidental” brushes and hugs left him with a desire to know more about the mysterious  feminine form, guided only with rumors of sandbags and salty coins. Luckily, Donny will no longer have to prowl around the mall, Mangaka-san to Assistant-san to The Animation (very long title) will teach him all he needs to know, while being able to relate positively to a character role model.

Just the right amount of meta.

Needless to say Mangaka-san is a family friendly ecchi comedy, filled to the brim with character archetypes in a standard all female class, but from what I’ve seen it could a little more than just the norm. That’s good, because I’ve been subjecting myself to anime even the rest of the Moe-Alt team wouldn’t take a second glance at (except Hss, he loves Selector Infected WIXOSS).

Mangaka-san, like Bokura Wa, uses absurdity to get its comedy across, but withless visual gags, and an emphasis on illustrating the joke that’s being told. Mangaka apparently have a lot to worry about, and this anime seems to back up the strange obsessions of both the creator and consumer. Worrying about original poses, characters, scenes, and dialogues, all while managing to sate the fanbase and produce quality content. We here at M0e-Alt really put stock in the bond between the creator and the editor, and has proven to contribute to the overall quality of the site.

If want to add in some ecchi style comedy into your Spring 2014 backlog, Mangaka-san to Assistant-san to The Animation is definitely the route to take. I figure everyone should give something new a chance instead of passing it over as some sort of generic ecchi anime. The manga is/might be done (not sure) so checking out what this anime is adapted off of is highly recommended.

The same piercing gaze girls give Donny when he's eyeballs them while he works. Working at Pizza Hut is tough.

I too, like to dream large. That’s what Mangaka-san to Assistant-san to is all about, dreaming large and pursuing a passion you care deeply about. If you like to dream large, then you have all the power to make it happen.
