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!
As Azuma and Team Pantasia compete in the eleventh round of the "Yakitate!! 25" bread battle, they realize that a reaction to an eggy creation has transformed judge Kuro-yan into Pantasia's archenemy, Kirisaki! Azuma tries buttering him up to roll back the team's imminent defeat, but in the process a shocking truth about their shared history is revealed! A rare type of flour just may soothe the wounds of the past--but will going against the grain help Azuma and his team or just cause more bitter feelings?
