Summary for episode 10:
Saiko and Shujin meet up with Hattori who tells them that they will talk in the Editorial department and they take the lift up they are immediately bombarded with the Top 3 shounen manga One Piece, Naruto and Bleach plus a few other series also running in Jack. Hattori apologises for making them wait and tells them that Inagaki-sensei, Oda-sensei, Toriyama-sensei and Kishimoto-sensei all liked there work however the editors judging it thought it would never be published. Saiko is wanting to progress faster and asks Hattori if they can submit work for serialisation however Hattori is doubtful, the editor in chief says that work needs to be good for it to be serialised and Saiko and Shujin are not at that level yet and need a good main character to do so. Their early attempts are unimpressive however after staying up all night Hattori suggests that a cult hit that only 20% of the reader base would read but consider it their favourite, is a possible way for Saiko and Shujin to get first place. Shujin then informs Hattori of his other story “Money and Intelligence”, which is about people who sell the contents of their minds to other people, Hattori likes this idea and informs them to work on “Money and Intelligence”.
