A animação é melhor  
by Kirishima💝Takafumi

Rating: 5.0  / 10.0
A animação valoriza mais o enredo que o proprio mangá em si
Bem resumindo mas bem explicada em certos pontos
E quando lemos o mangá para entender melhor acabamos por dar a entender mais complicações e historias paralelas
Muito sem foco.
Realmente o anime da de 10 a mais que o mangá.

New view at yaoi genre

My first encounter with Yoshinaga Fumi was via this wonderful serie. I had never been big fan of yaoi genre. It's not like I hate homosexuals, I am bi myself so I do not have problem with those stuff at all. But I am not the kind of person who loves sweet and romantic stories. It's not my cup of tea. And that's why I found yaoi genre for long time very boring and stereotypical. I even called it harlequins romance novels for low self-consciousness girls. biggrin

Than one day at 2010 I made shopping at eBay page and got one more manga as gift for big order. It was DMP English tranlation of Antique Bakery vol. 1 biggrin I was bit nerves about it when I found at database what genre of manga it is. (Kind of ironic now because the yaoi tag is gone and people call it only shoujo). biggrin But I gave it chance and I was big suprised. It was completly different from all of those sweet stories like Junjou Romantica.

I started reading Yoshinaga-sensei stories even those where is lot of sex and I found her style very pleasant. The drawing is not so perfect but you can easy recognize her work because of it. Now I am collecting her manga and trying to tell people about her works but unfortunately most of true yaoi fangirls hate it. sad

I like about Antique Bakery that refreshing humor, adult characters and non love cliché. My favorite character is Tachibana because he hate sweets like me. And the ending of this serie was really best. I still have it in my memory even after all these years. smile

Absolutely Wonderful

This is one manga for which I gladly use the word perfect in it's fullest sense. I have gone back to read this time and again because this type of work is just so rare. The only other manga which comes to my mind with a similar ambiance (the setting, characters, situations, especially the art work is completely different) is Golden Days.
The similarity in terms of ambiance to which I am referring is the maturity this work shows. As the synopsis says nothing is what you would expect it to be, and it is this sheer breath taking originality (among other factors) that makes this absolutely wonderful.

Atypical story but very beautiful

The plot is quite unique to be honest..
Tachibana came from a rich family.
One day he suddenly decided to quit his normal job in order to open a dessert shop.
The pastry chef that his father recommended turns out to be the same boy he rejected when he was in high school. He still vividly remember his face but Ono already forgotten about him...

I really like the interaction between the characters..
Each story has depth and meaning...
Most of them are a tear jerker.. I've cried a few times while reading them...
The story is also funny and it made me laugh so hard...

It's not pure YAOI story and Ono the chef just happened to be the Gay character...
But you will completely love him and his antics...

This is a good manga and I totally recommend reading this..

This sleeve is very stopped and I found it very boring, the characters are simple and the art is not legal ... Chikage is more fluffy and funny the whole sleeve. The sleeve has very incomplete with things not resolved ...

While I wouldn't exactly say that this series completely qualifies as "slice of life," I will admit that I kind of enjoyed this one. The only thing that I didn't like about this series was that so many things were left unresolved in the end. Even if the mangaka was going for the whole open ended thing, I still think that some issues could have been worked out a little better in the end of this one.

Also, for the comment:

...Are all real-life gay men like that? If so, then maybe I finally understand why they're so hated... do realize that this is not real life, right? But if we're using this manga as source of reference here, then the same question could be asked about straight people if you look at every playboy that exists in various types of manga on the market. One character (from a manga, no less) couldn't possibly be representative of an entire group of people. That's a rather bold--if not completely silly--assumption to make.

If you love reading a manga that sucks you right in and won't let you stop reading, this is for you. The interactions between the characters are unique and there are a lot of things to laugh and cry (happily) about. It's really great!

I loved this manga! It wasn't really Yaoi ( I thought it was thats why I picked it up.) But it was great! I enjoyed to the end! Beautiful art, lovable characters, and great story plot. Fumi sensei did again! I would love it she was to do a sequel but I'm so far enjoying the doushi that have been done.

somehow this manga was really a good read, and i actually didn't stop until i finished it. and i was right to do so.
and yet, i have this kind of feeling of being really unsatisfied!!! i don't know how to explain it.the ending was good, and it ended at the right place too. but it was kind of cut off. we finally get to understand about the characters, and why are they this way, and then it ends. and you don't get to see any progress on the main couple, and you can't even picture it either. because truthfully even after finishing i don't know if they will ever be together.
i gave it a 9 because it was actually very good and i couldn't leave until i finished reading, but i still couldn't give it a 10 because of mine unsatisfied

...but it feels unfinished. it stops at an okay place, but i for one would like to see more of the storylines resolved. but i guess that's what makes it "slice of life."

edit: dunno if i should put this here (a manga site), but the korean live-action movie version is absolutely delicious. i bumped up my rating (just a tiny bit) solely for that reason
