The tenth and final for the first series which the mangaka ended last year. This was following the announcement made by Square Enix last year in its monthly Shonen Gangan.Mangaka-san to Assistant-san to, also known as The Comic Artist and His Assistants, began in 2008 as a four-panel slice-of-life comic with romance and ecchi.

Mangaka-san to Assistant-san to tells the story of mangaka Aito Yuuki and his assistant Ashisu Sahoto. The manga revolves around the comedies and day-to-day professional and personal interactions of a mangaka who doesn’t understand the feelings of his characters, thus asking his assistant for help.

The first series ran in Gangan, a manga imprint of Square Enix which is home to series like Fullmetal Alchemist, Arakawa Under the Bridge, Soul Eater and Sekirei. Young Gangan runs the seinen titles on the first and third Friday of every month.
