Anime Screenwriter Pokes Fun At the Biz in "Writer x Writer" Manga
Anime screenwriter Makoto Fukami (Berserk, PSYCHO-PASS) is branching out once again into the manga medium with a new comic entitled Writer x Writer, a “girls comedy” which chronicles the trials and tribulations of a rookie screenwriter who hits a rough patch after making a spectacular debut.
The story of Writer x Writer follows Kaede Hashimoto, a young woman who wins the rookie screenwriter prize with her debut work on a smash-hit theatrical anime film. Kaede moves to Tokyo to pursue her dreams, but the reality of making a living as a screenwriter is much harsher than she anticipated. She finds more work doing part-time jobs than writing, but her luck begins to change when she gets a very important phone call…
Writer x Writer is written by Makoto Fukami and features illustrations by Koto. Writer x Writer is serialized in Houbunsha’s Manga Time Kirara Forward seinen manga magazine, and the first chapter appears in the December 2017 issue, which was published in Japan on October 24, 2017.
