Description
Second-year culinary student Sakai has always dreamed of opening his own little restaurant and being able to touch people's hearts with his cooking like his grandfather did. Except he's at his limit, fainting in class from overwork and fatigue from commuting three hours every morning just to get to school but there's no way he can afford to live closer.... Until his classmate tells him about an almost too good to believe room share nearby. And so begins the story of four misfit roommates.

Sequel please

This was a very cute story. It is involves four guys who live together. The owner and his childhood friend, an actor and our MC, a chef-in-training. I would like to see sequel with the owner and childhood friend as the main couple, with this couple(from this story) as secondary characters. It feels incomplete without knowing about them...

I just can't believe that it's finished. T__T
There are so many loose ends, that it really just doesn't feel complete to me. Having said that, I have read other manga before that claimed to have been just 1 volume, then after a short while, a 2nd volume/sequel/spin-off was then released. So I'm seriously hoping there will be a continuation of this because I want to see more of those 4 lovely boys!!

To be honest, I really can't stress just how amazing this manga is. It is the perfect feel-good story with adorable characters that have brilliant chemistry with each other (I don't just mean between the main couple, the secondary couple are awesome too - though there really isn't enough development in their relationship. Yet. *Fingers still crossed for a continuation...*) Plus the art is just beautiful. It's quite simple in some ways, but so clear and pretty. And oh-so-hot. Especially the modelling scenes in chapter 2... (Whenever I read those few pages, I realise I act just like those fujoshi, lol)

So like I said, even if I were to write an essay detailing how much I love this manga, it really wouldn't do it justice. I strongly recommend that you just try it for yourself if you like cute and funny BL with some really hot kissing scenes!

Oh, Junko-sensei, please don't tempt us with such amazing work then just cut us off. It makes me sad T__T

Good Story...

It was a good story. However, it feels... so unfinished? When I think about the title, "Recipe no Ouji-sama" I'm thinking about a story that takes place at a cooking school. Well, of course, the main character does go to a cooking school, etc.. However, it wasn't quite what I was expecting. They introduced to us, four characters, of which two of them are main. One goes to a cooking school, another one trying to be an actor.

I get it... It's about a guy who is trying to be like his grandfather and cook that meal that will make people happy, etc... The story was very normal. I mean, I like it. I like most of Junko's works. The plot was just not there, in my opinion. I would have loved to see how he did in the contest.

Then we have the other two. They don't have their own story, or book. They have a special backstory, but that's all we get. I'd love to see more of these people actually. I don't know if the manga got the axe, and she had to rush-job the ending, because it does feel rushed in the end.

But again, it was a good story.

It's so cute!!!!!!!!!!!
The story itself is well done and the plot is well developed. It's unique, kinda, and it progresses every well. The part I loved the most about this were the characters. The characters we all lovely. Not just the main couple, but the two roommates too. I want a continuation about those two. Try it out. You won't regret it. One of the cutest works ever. I really enjoyed it. It made me smile the whole time.

Ahhh! Another Junko work that's great but was ended to quickly! I wish she'd written more about Tsubasa and Yasuhisa's story. But I did enjoy Shouhei and Kei's! It was a fun, short read with a good amount of smexy scenes in between. I really hope this gets another volume!

To be honest I've always had a thing for food and cooking, so it might not be entirely unbiased of me to say I quite enjoy this manga. That said, this is undeniably a really cute and surprisingly funny story that could lift up your mood in various ways. Of course with the genres it's hard to be extraordinary but with this manga, I'm not exaggerating when I mean Junko-sensei is beginning to re-establish her place in my list of beloved BL mangakas. I know she's really popular with her light-hearted series and that's not a bad thing, it's just personal preference that I've almost never found myself truly connected and sympathetic with her mangas apart from probably only one or two series. With this however, I feel like I can start to expect more from her again (first and foremost a sequel/ spin-off/ doujinshi/ WHATEVER it is that is based on this manga) and to look forward to reading her new works. Hopefully sensei will continue to steadily improve her skills like this and come up with even better mangas in the future.

Cute

A fairly cute, lighthearted story. I enjoyed getting to know all the characters in the house. The situations were basic, but enjoyable. I would've been able to rate it higher if it didn't feel like it was cut short. It seems to me like the mangaka had to wrap it up prematurely since
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
there was never a conclusion to the food contest or the relationship between the two other housemates (never got to find out what happened the night of the goukon either when one came home with bruises).

This is a feel good manga. I loovvee it.
This is yaoi, so beware. Not at all explicit, borderline shounen ai.
A really cute love story. I enjoyed it very much. I'm glad that the setting is out of high school. It's refreshing. Also, the characters are very much lovable. The art by Junko is to die for, so if you like it, be sure to check out her other works too! The ending was too abrupt for me because there are still some things that were mentioned but hadn't panned out yet. But that didn't leave a bad aftertaste at all. I recommend it for shounen ai lovers and romantic comedy lovers. It is a light hearted manga. Love it smile
