Mashiro's speech about manga, resolving an argument between Shiratori and Moriya over whether mangakas should strive for popularity or artistic value and showing just how passionate Mashiro is about manga.
Mashiro: "In the past, during our grandparents' generation, and maybe even during ours today, there were people who forbade children from reading manga because they thought it'd make them stupid. But manga is gradually starting to be accepted as a kind of art. So we ought to create something whose quality and content can uphold this pride. We don't have the skill for that just yet, though, so we've got no choice but to think of how to win the love of our readers while we make our stories."
