When they became high school students, they started drawing manga for a publisher and came out with their first work under the pen name Tenshi Tama. In 1988, the two men stopped working together because Abiko’s manga was primarily for teenagers while Fujimoto wanted to target children.

Famous Japanese comic series often make readers anxious to follow and wait for a long time. This makes many readers feel uncomfortable due to the speed of the authors’ story creation can not keep up with the power of their comics.


If so, please go to Baketeriya, a manga of Ecchi genre with good quality has been completed.

Baketeriya is a popular Ecchi manga series in Japan with content about the life of one of the most useless student guy, Naoya Kamitani. The story begins with the scene where our useless Naoya Kamitani is suddenly accepted into Tokyo Academy, one of the most terrible schools in the country even though as we all know, Naoya Kamitani is useless, including in education.

At this new school, Naoya Kamitani met a mysterious man named Tsukui and was introduced to a mysterious location by him. Curious with this implicit introduction, Naoya Kamitani went to the place where Tsukui pointed and was accidentally teased by a bunch of youkai living here. Not only that, the demons here also hint that Naoya Kamitani will be considered as a sacrifice to eat and eat the guy.

At this point, Naoya Kamitani discovered that he was admitted to this prestigious school thanks to the intervention of Misasagi, a rich lady who is now the owner of this academy. Misasagi’s sole purpose is to use Naoya Kamitani as a sacrifice to the hungry hungry ghosts that her family is raising. Fortunately for Naoya Kamitani, these ghosts did not like the taste of the guy, so he decided to postpone eating him, which made Lady Misasagi extremely angry.

Before being happy when his life is kept, Naoya Kamitani’s life is like being flushed down the toilet when Misasagi announced that he will expel our useless guy Naoya Kamitani from the academy. In order to be allowed to stay by Misasagi, Naoya Kamitani had to make a contract by trying to become more delicious and when he reached the good level needed, the ghosts would eat him, in return for him. This guy will continue to study at this school.

In terms of content and plot, Baketeriya is not really an excellent comic. Some readers even think that Baketeriya’s story is a bit illogical and seems a bit monotonous. However, for a series of comics with a fairly short length, only lasting 23 chapters, the content of the story created by the author so simple is acceptable.
