England. France. Germany. What common thread binds these three nations together? Answer: each is famous for producing unique, distinctive, delicious bread.

But what of the island nation of 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!

Note: Won the 49th Shogakukan Manga Award in the Shounen category.

I've been a fan of this manga ever since I started reading this years ago; as such it's one of my favourites in the shounen genre. However! Sad to say, this is yet another comedy manga that goes on far longer than it should have. Everything up untill the end of the Monaco Arc is completely hilarious and a great read. But beyond that, you really start to feel it dragging. The TV Arc is simply not interesting enough, with entire volumes often spent on getting to a dull punchline. Therefor it's no wonder this manga got less popular in Japan, and eventually got dropped by Sunday. It really is quite a challenge to keep up the quality of a manga along its rising popularity; many fail, few succeed.

I definitely recommend you read this, if you like silly and over the top humor, and are looking for something different. But keep in mind that the last 10 or so volumes aren't up to the standard of the previous. Otherwise this would've been a pure 10.

this is a HILARIOUS and HIGHLY INTERESTING manga....the art isn't bad, the story is nicely progressed and wasn't draggy at all, and the sense of humor is fantastic....totally recommended if you wanna laugh your ass off from witnessing the "reactions" of the judges there ^^

Yakitate!! Japan is defintely one of the more funnier manga I've read (although I've only read four comedy manga and enjoyed them all). I like it when it gets really serious at times though. Everything is great about this manga. Right now, in terms of comedy and from what I've read, I think that Yakitate!! Japan would get right under Azumanga Daioh.

Great anime/manga. The puns and parodies are hilarious and the effort seemingly spent to create each chapter is great. The art is fabulous. However, it has a few flaws, but it is no doubt good. I've learned quite a bit about bread, fictionally and nonfictionally. Too bad SnoopyCool doesn't do licensed manga... I mean Yakitate!! Japan would be hard to translate without little side notes. Oh well. Hopefully, a new group will do Yakitate!! Japan so that we won't have to wait for millions of years until Viz catches up to right now.
