Genuinely one of the better mangas I've read in recent weeks. I really was happy with everything about it including the characters/plot/ending... except for the transitions of between chapters or volumes. Sometimes it got a bit confusing, but honestly, it was just so good i didnt care.

This is one heck of a manga. The first few volumes provide the perfect build up. They are funky, odd, humorous and make you laugh like crazy. The premise itself is ridiculous. How do yakuza and pastries mix up together exactly? But, the mangaka plays it really well and gives you an awesome story.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Starting with 5/10.

Poor development. Author has no plan for the whole story. It's more like a collection of short stories. Every ark has it's own characters that disappear after ark ends. (-1)

Poor romance. Age gap 12 years! Chiyoko is only 16! But it doesn't bother anybody. Not just lovers, but everybody around take it like normal. Ichigo behaves like a child, especially first kiss scene. (-1)

Goody-goody plot more suitable for shounen. "Don't kill, love people around you, etc". Who needs this? (-1)

Poor ending. Happy end is boring as it is (predictable from the first chapter). But two "twists" at the end make it sickly sweet. Author has no guts to send Chiyoko away or kill Ichigo. (-1)

Great art! This was the thing that kept me reading. I'd like to see hentai with such art. :D (+2)

It's an awesome series. The first one or two have only a few good scenes, but it sticks to you. By the time the shiina arc rolls around, it becomes awesome. Art is good, funky comedy, and likeable characters, except for the girl, until later on. Check it out.

Very enjoyable slice of manga, with the added flair of a good sense of humor.
Defined, playful artwork. Girls are drawn cute (when they're intended to be), without excess of fanservice. Just a sympathetic manga, which is hard to come by these days.

This manga id really good. if you can get over a few hurdles. First off, the heroine is a bitch. Second, the main desired couple is 12 years difference in age. Third, somehow it doesnt bring that yakuza feel in this manga. Everything else is really good.

i dont know what it is about this manga, but i like it. whether it be from the clean and fresh art style, the funky humor, the absurd situations [gangstahs and pastriesconfused?] to the pretty decent storyline and character development, i think this manga is something to watch out for when the scanlationgroups pick up speed [we're not that far into the storyline right now]
this is one of those mangas i just picked up, and was hooked on by page 3

From what's been scanlated, it seems really promising and I'm pretty sure some darker undertones will come up.

Releases are really slow, though. C'mon, the first scanlated release was 5 years ago (2003)..... WTF's up with that. Each chapter is only between 17-24 pages.

It's frustrating but I guess it's common. There are few people scanlating the good stuff and many people scanlating crap like Suzuka and Naruto.
