Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, the creators of Death Note, have just launched a new manga called Bakuman. (Click for more info.)
The story does not have the seriousness of DN. In fact, it's the opposite. The first chapter had me laughing quite hard.
There are several references to pop culture and Japanese manga in the first chapter, including Death Note.

It's not easy to become and live as a mangaka, as Mashiro knows from his late uncle.

At his 9th grade, while trying to keep up with reality, school and then normal job, he left his notebook with a sketch of Azuki, a girl he likes. Takagi, a first rate student found it and trying to convince Mashiro to draw a manga with his story. Mashiro doesn't like the idea and tries to decline.

Takagi, however, tries to stick to dream and found out that Azuki also wants to be a voice actress and already got a good reply from a production company. Takagi, then, brought Mashiro to her house and telling her his dream.... Mashiro then tells her that he will write a manga with Takagi and if their manga gets turned into an anime, she'll voice the female lead and marry him. Azuki agrees, but the condition that she has is that they cannot meet until then.

Now, the lives of wannabe mangakas begin!!!

Lol I really raised an eyebrow at first when I read or even realized what the story was about, the beginning was well... kinda like death note, I mean Light was a students etc you get the idea, but honestly I`ve actually read and for some reason liked some of the chapters. 3 out I guess?
