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!
They've bested the hometown favorites from France, they've bucked the expectations of their detractors back in Japan, they've even invented a few new bread recipes along the way, and now Team Pantasia is headed to the Monaco Cup finals against Team USA. Gearing up for three rounds of baking pyrotechnics, master swordsman Kai Suwabara elects to lead Pantasia's battle cry, but his opponent, the bikini-clad pâtissier par excellence Monica Adenauer is anything but a pushover. Will Monica leave Kai whipped, stripped, beaten and battered?
