* When the characters wink solemnly or their noses become quasi-realistic, what does it ''mean''? (Any HikaruNoGo readers willing to pitch in here? I have a tentative theory for the first bit that Obata just has a thing for people covering their right eyes.)

*** I don't mean the whole sexism angle that gets widely debated from fans of the series. I mean the absurdity of the whole thing. There could have been a point where like their parents, Mashiro and Azuki could have gotten bored of the arrangement and eventually one of them decided to start a relationship up with someone else. That would have made all the hard work and time that they were apart just to be successful before being together completely pointless.

** It's worth pointing out that Mashiro and Azuki are, despite their humble beginnings, essentially Japanese celebrities, being half of a best-selling mangaka duo, and a voice actress who could reasonably expect to land a main heroine role, respectively. It's natural that they'd attract a fair amount of attention and controversy over their relationship. Miura once says "Voice acting is a job that sells dreams[[hottip:note:I wonder if he means people fantasizing about getting together with their favorite idols, or imagining them as someone who wouldn't settle down with someone]], so I can understand the fans being annoyed, but..." Additionally, with the exception of the anonymous posters and Miho's manager (who has virtually no respect for her individual wishes, as seen in the gravure photo album incident back when Mashiro first got serialized), ''everyone'' thinks that Mashiro and Azuki haven't done anything wrong, which could underscore how unreasonable the backlash is.

** Presumably, he feels she might think he's only going out with her for his uncle's sake, and not because he likes her.

** If they went into that much detail about the individual mangas, it would most likely detract from the actual plot of the manga. The changes in the manga you mention actually being discussed (gag/story etc.) would genuinely change how the manga is written, and change the audience reading said manga, and most importantly, it would affect the plot of Bakuman. The content details of the individual mangas don't really affect the plot overall, so it doesn't go into much detail there.

***On the subject of her being his reward for success: if it were just that, it probably would be sexist. But everyone seems to be forgetting that this isn't one-sided at all. ''He'' is also ''her'' reward for her success - the 'rule' for them getting married isn't just them getting an anime, it also relies on her being a prominent voice actor, good enough to get the main role in the anime. Come to think of it, even if the anime was the only condition for marriage, it could easily be seen as sexist in the opposite direction - ''he only deserves to be with her if he can make an anime-worthy manga''. If he can't do that, then he's not worthy of her.

** That's a problem inside japanese fandom. May not make any sense, but it's real.

*** Yet the anime didn't seem to have any problem mentioning the magazine's popular titles like One Piece, Bleach and Dragon Ball.
