Staff Pick

If you're the type to take things too seriously, don't bother with this graphic novel series, Yakitate!! Japan. Instead of killing each other, our characters are competing with rolls, loaves, and pastries. With famous lines like "I was distracted by his bread!!" you will be giggling your way through this fun.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Azuma Kazuma, an energetic and dense young man, was introduced to the art of bread making when he was six. He decides to take the path of bread-making and become a baker right after graduating from middle school. Through his travels, he encounters many rivals and found work at the branch store of the most famous bread maker brand, the Phantasia.

Review:

"Kazuma Azuma is an enthusiastic, slightly gullible young baker who dreams of creating Ja-pan: a nationally recognized bread of Japan equal to the great breads of Germany, France and other countries. Aiding Kazuma in his baking quest are his legendary 'Hands of the Sun,' exceptionally warm hands that speed the fermentation of yeast. For years Kazuma works to bake Ja-pan, mastering 56 different styles before traveling to Tokyo in hopes of furthering his studies at the famous bakery chain Pantasia. But before he is guaranteed employment at Pantasia, Kazuma must submit to a rigorous employment exam. He faces both the cunning Kyousuke Kawachi, who seeks to knock him out of the running, and Tsukino Azusagawa, a mysterious young woman with a vested interest in seeing him advance. The three soon find their lives are hopelessly intertwined, and together they struggle to make their marks in the world of dough. Indeed, all of Hashiguchi's characters are a clever mix of fierce pride and youthful optimism. He chooses to play it safe with his art, using a style very typical of manga, yet the book's whimsical nature shines through. Fans of the over the top Iron Wok Jan will enjoy this shonen manga of competitive baking. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

"First published by Shogakukan Inc. in Japan as Yakitate!! Japan."--Colophon.

A manga about bread sounds boring to say the least, but I was blow away by how much Yakitate kept me in suspense, on par with other shonen mangas like Naruto or Bleach. A lot of research has gone into it which is a plus.
