One day, class genius and aspiring manga writer Akito Takagi asks Moritaka if “he wants team up as manga artists.” Moritaka resists at first, but decides to go for it when the girl he’s in love with, Miho Azuki, promises to marry him if “they both realize their dreams of becoming a manga artist and voice actor.”Moritaka and Akito work day and night to realize their dream of creating a manga series for Shonen Jump Weekly.
