Inudzuka is a teacher who has been caring for his little daughter, Tsumugi, on his own since his wife's death. He isn't good at cooking, so they've been eating packaged meals from the convenience store. A series of events lead him one evening to a restaurant run by the mother of one of his students, Kotori. Her mother isn't there, but Kotori does her best to feed them both. It turns out that Kotori is often alone, since her parents are divorced and her mother is frequently not around. The three of them begin to meet and cook tasty food together.

Mostly, this is a fluffy kind of healing manga where they cook delicious-looking things in pretty much every chapter, BUT it also has a bit of serious subject matter examination. Wrote a long review of the series. It's quite the good'n; lovely art, too.

If you enjoy slice of life titles, you will likely enjoy this one. Amaama to Inazuma is very emotionally captivating. You will be moved. You will be saddened, but not in an upsetting way. It is a very uplifting, sweet story.

To my surprise, the focus is not necessarily the little girl. Of course, she is a main character. Her cuteness as the cover character draws people in. Then you're captured by the budding relationship between her father and another girl. It's one of the sweetest ones I've come across.

I've read a lot of mangas, from poorly written to award winning. Sweetness and Lightning is an instant favorite.

This series is like: Everything is okay with delicious food!
Me like: Alright, I'm in.

This series is really adorable, the kid is way too cute (seriously, that girl is adorable x1000), the art is awesome and I tend to get really hungry after reading a chapter... that and I get really motivated to start cooking, but then I'm disappointed because everything in the manga looks way more delicious than you could ever recreate in real life. First and foremost, this is a cooking manga. The best I've ever seen, but the plot is still secondary. Now I'm hungry again.

I've been waiting for this series, Im so glad I checked back on it! This manga is so so cute, the art is nice, (forgive me for not knowing the names.) I love the little girl, the way she kisses her daddy! >//w//<
I love when they meet the teen-age girl Im gonna guess he'll probably meet her in school. I also love

when she freaks out about cooking rice, pffft!
I know this manga will be awsome! I can't wait for more chapters, thank you for translating this!

What's up with the sudden chapter jump?,
