After clashing swords in the live adaptation of Rurouni Kenshin’s sequel, Kamiki Ryunosuke and Takeru Satoh are going to work together again in another live adaptation of popular manga series, Bakuman.

Bakuman is a Japanese manga series written by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata, the same creative team responsible for Death Note. The story follows talented artist Moritaka Mashiro and aspiring writer Akito Takagi, two ninth grade boys who wish to become manga artists, with Mashiro as the artist and Takagi as the writer.

Kamiki commented, “This is my favorite manga that I read until it became scuffed, so I am truly happy.” Sato added, “I will do my best to be able to show the history, reality, and wonderfulness of Japanese manga and Japanimation to the people all over the world.”
The film adaptation it’s set to open in theaters in 2015.
