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's Ja-pan 44 may be the greatest Ja-pan yet! A bread so mind-bogglingly delicious it borders on the sublime, Kazuma's heavenly creation sends the Pantasia Rookie Tournament judges Kuroyanagi and Dave straight to cloud nine. If Kazuma's new recipe is quite literally to die for, does this mean he advances to the next round, or is the competition over?!
