Description
Tachibana has recently quit his job at a high-class firm, and for unknown reasons, decides to open a bakery. His first employee is Ono, an extremely talented patissier who is also known as the 'Gay of demonic charm' - something that has caused him to lose his job countless times. Joining the crew also is Eiji - a retired champion boxer - who is hired on the spot as only a trainee purely because he is not Ono's 'type.' However, Chikage, the bumbling childhood friend and shadow of Tachibana, is exactly his type! Now, with the shop finally open, everyone seems to be filling their positions well; but one question remains: what were Tachibana's motives for opening the bakery, and does it have a link to his troubled and forgotten past?

Recipient of 26th Kodansha Manga Award in the shoujo manga category for 2002.

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..

Fun but Incomplete

I had read all four volumes and thought there was more until I came to this page. While the manga is along the lines of repressed and touching romance of Yoshinaga's works - it was left unfulfilled since most of the storylines were left almost unresolved.

Boring...

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 ...
