June film "Bakuman"
(Director: Hitoshi Ohne, 2014, 120min. Rating: PG).

What does it take to be a manga star?
Based on the hit Japanese manga series written by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata, the same creative team responsible for Death Note comes the live-action film adaptation of Bakuman.

Drawing manga can be the death of you. Moritaka Mashiro (Takeru Sato) is well aware of this, having witnessed his manga artist uncle work himself to death. He is determined to avoid the path his uncle walked, despite being a gifted illustrator, and spends his days drifting in mediocrity instead.

One day, class genius and aspiring manga writer Akito (Ryunosuke Kamiki) asks Moritaka if he wants to team up as manga artists.

The pair tirelessly works day and night to realise their dream of creating a manga series for Shonen Jump Weekly - a considerable milestone for every manga artist. With no shortage of up-and-coming rivals, will they ever realise their dream?!

Presented by the Japan Foundation, the Consulate-General of Japan in Auckland, Massey University, the University of Waikato, the University of Auckland.
