Every artist has different drawing techniques. Some fully use the computer (using a drawing tablet and photoshop) Some fully draw by hand (using pencil, then pen, then erasing the pencil, the making the pen lined bolder) Some use a combination of the two (Draw by hand, scan to computer, complete with photoshop). It's really up to the artist.

There are two direct official adaptations of Bakuman's manga in real life. Otter 11 As @ʞɹɐzǝɹ said, Otter 11 has been published in Shonen Jump as a oneshot by Takeshi Obata(Art) and Tsugumi Oba(Story), which are the same persons that made Bakuman. PCP (Perfect Crime Party) PCP has been adapted as a novel by Takeshi Obata(Art) which is the illustrator ...

These are still just rumors and speculation. The most notable are in Death Note and Bakuman. In Death Note, the seminar Light goes to is called "Gamo Seminar": In Bakuman, there is reference to a series called Super Hero Legend. Not only is the concept similar, but even the drawings of this are very clear references to the art style of Hiroshi Gamo's 1993 ...

The magazine QuickJapan vol. 81 published interviews with the authors Ohba and Obata, and the editor Soichi Aida. Aida stated that: Like how the number of players who play a sport would increase after a manga on the sport gets popular, I do think about people who would think "I might try drawing a manga" after reading Bakuman. If Bakuman does well, we ...

Bakuman seems to be based on real characters. As listed in the Cultural References' article on Bakuman Wikia, with their similarities mentioned on the MangaFox forums: Ashirogi Muto appear to be based on Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata. Akito Takagi and Moritaka Mashiro resemble Ohba Tsugumi and Obata Takeshi, respectively. The writer and the artist part ...

I'll highlight the main points made in this article by Justin Sevakis: Well, the thing is, Bakuman. presents a very romanticized, very clean-cut, idyllic perspective on the "manga industry." And it works in that sense - it's goal, as a manga itself, is to make you care about the dreams of these young Shonen archetypes and hope that they will achieve all ...

Takagi Akito's parents are shown in a flashback in chapter 8 of the manga which is titled Ame to Muchi, in which Takagi explains that his dad was laid off from a bank and his mother pressured him to become a banker, but he stood up to her and she never commented on his choices after that. Takagi's mother calls him "Acchan": Takagi's father: In chapter 76 ...

Because the anime was broadcasted on NHK. NHK, being a public TV channel in Japan, doesn't allow commercial advertising. Much like the BBC, NHK is funded by a "receiving fee" by every Japanese household, with no commercial advertising and the maintenance of a position of strict political impartiality. (Emphasis mine) Their official domestic ...

Although I agree with you based on the size of the item in her palm that it looks like the size of a smartphone, it makes most sense to assume this is supposed to be a packet of white tissues (which should be drawn slightly smaller than it is in the close-up shots) because 1) tissues are the most common of such items to be handed out in public places ...

Just to add up to @Madara's answer. Computers are also used to generate backgrounds. They'll generate wire mesh objects and room, if neccesary they'll apply complicated lighting and shadows (like sunlight passing through a complicated ceiling), apply textures to the models, and then print them and work by hand over them! You can see the process of an ...

It is not stated in neither Yuujirou's or Akira's Bakuman Wiki pages nor MAL pages that they are siblings, the conclusion being that they are not. It may be a pure coincidence. I am not very informed regarding this anime though. Akira Hattori wiki page Yuujirou Hattori wiki page also Akira Hattori MAL page Yuujirou Hattori MAL page As you can see ...

Yes they did skip some of story in the manga version. There was one part in particular where they make a manga, and in the anime they submit it whereas the anime they just said no I'm going to turn in a better one. I'll add the episode\chapter numbers when I find it. Starts sifting through chapters

I've only seen the first season of the anime, but based on that I can point out that the manga didn't flesh out Mashiro & Moritaka's works. When they created a new manga the anime would usually show you most of its story, whereas the manga generally only went for a vague overview. I'm not sure how that worked out after they became serialized though.
