Are you ready for the Iron Chef of bread?! Manga shall not live by bread alone.
England. France. Germany. What common thread binds these three nations together? Answer: each is famous for producing unique, distinctive, delicious bread. But what about Japan, home to rice and delicacies of the sea? Is there not a doughy, gastronomic delight they can claim as their own? The answer is no...until now! Kazuma Azuma, a 16-year-old-boy blessed with otherworldly baking powers, has taken it upon himself to create Ja-pan, the national bread of the land of the rising sun!
The Pantasia Rookie Tournament is in full swing with Kazuma going up against a daunting opponent in every respect--Tsukino's half-sister Mizuno and rival for control of the entire Pantasia chain! Mizuno is ready to knock Kazuma out of the ring with her super-tasty-- and super-expensive to make--patented melon bread. Can Kazuma compete against this high-class recipe with a can of regular old melon juice? Plus, some exciting bonus info on the origins of Ken Matsuhiro, the afro-sporting manager of the Pantasia South Branch!
