Look, the women in the story aren't getting anything done. At some point the authors have to notice that their manga is sexist. CrowningMomentOfAwesome ensues, in which the women will save the men from a desperate situation. Or there will be a women VS men manga battle situation, and the men will be overwhelmingly defeated and [[MadeASlave forced to become slaves]]. Or something.

Seriously, one of the characters has two voices: [[OuranHighSchoolHostClub "ditzy, shouty ham"]] and [[Manga/DeathNote "cold, calculating scorn."]] I can't think of any other seiyuu who fills those two roles so neatly.

He's the kind of guy who would realise that Mashiro needs an anime to get married. As it is, PCP seems to be a series that will go on a long time. He's probably realised that Mashiro is trying for a second series, but he doesn't feel that the quality would be that good. By cancelling PCP he'd give them a blank slate to create an anime worthy manga. Alternatively, being ridiculously GenreSavvy having recognised that Mashiro has the eyes of a hero, he has cast himself as the villian and will act accordingly.

The constant references to AshitaNoJoe, including it being Mashiro's favorite series, are foreshadowing his eventual fate. Mashiro already overworked himself into the hospital. He will continue to push himself to improve both PCP and Reversi. Reversi will get popular enough to get an anime and Azuki will voice the female lead. Having achieved their dreams, Mashiro and Azuki will get married.

[[WMG: ZombiePowder does not exist in this universe.]]
Going with the AlternateHistory theory that Manga/OnePiece, Manga/{{Naruto}} and Manga/{{Bleach}} all ended by the start of this series because they started earlier, it follows that Tite Kubo never wrote ZombiePowder, or at least was rejected early on. One Piece and Naruto both had pilots with a significant gap between running the pilot and the start of the series, but BLEACH's pilot was shortly before the series started. If, on the other hand, there was no Zombie Powder, BLEACH could conceivably have been written much sooner.

There is some wierd guy who is an inspiration for Nizuma nad L, woman who looks like Iwase and Takada and some MagnificentBastard who was inspiration of Light and Nanamine. There was also some {{Gonk}} with bizarre hair that was source of inspiration for Hattori and Ryuk.

* Original poster here. A couple of days ago, I reread the first volumes of ''Manga/DeathNote'' and ''Manga/{{Bakuman}}''[[hottip:*: (Man, given [[ParanoiaFuel the right]] [[AuthorExistenceFailure frame of mind]], the breezy self-insert romp is about twelve times as depressing as the morally questionable killfest will ever be.)]], and it turns out that ten weeks is the absolute ''minimum'' for a series' cancellation. So I change my theory to the one immediately below...

A friend pointed out how similar they look in [[http://www.mangareader.net/219-58595-2/bakuman/chapter-109.html this panel]] and I [[NightmareFuel cannot unsee]]. Also worth noting: Mashiro - S, A and R = Miho.
