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!
Kazuma Azuma's team Pantasia is one defeat away from losing their shop as they enter round six of the Yakitate!! 25 baking competition. Their opponent is Mokoyama, a man in a panda suit whose silly exterior belies his great baking power...and otherworldly baking powder. If that weren't enough to bear, Azuma must teach a lesson to a spoiled mini-gourmand who insists on having his bread and eating it too. Will Team Pantasia rise to the occasion or run out of steam?
