Can anybody give me a complete reference to all anime whose titles, artists and/or lines were referenced in the Bakuman series? It would also be great if you could let me know when they were mentioned. External sources will be appreciated too.

  • Are you asking about only real anime, like Naruto and One Piece, or are you asking about all anime, including Otter 11 and Crow?

    The TV Tropes page for Bakuman has a sizable list of references under the "Shout-Out" entry, many with links to the specific instance. Many of the referenced anime/manga hail from Shonen Jump, including Death Note, Dragon Ball, and One Piece. A complete reference chart may be difficult to find or compile without significant effort.

In the Manga Bakuman has references to several other works from time to time

  • One Piece
  • Bleach
  • Naruto
  • DragonBall
  • Touch
  • To Love ru
  • Enigma
