Review: Yakitate


Plot Summary: Azuma Kazuma isn’t terribly clever, but he’s got a good heart and great skill – at baking. Since childhood, he’s been on a quest to create the perfect bread to represent Japan internationally. Now, he seeks to enter the famous bakery Pantasia, in hopes of reaching his goal. But plots abound…

This is one of the best animes I have seen. Yakitate Japan follows one boy through his baking adventures. Azuma Kazuma is that young baker, and he started baking at the age of 6. And his friends Kawachi, Tsukino, Kanmori, and the Manager go through battles with baking contests against each other and against other poeple to save Tsukinos grandfather’s company. I It is one of the funniest animes I have ever seen, with a great story line and extremely well done. I couldnt stop watching episode to episode. I didnt know there was this much to baking bread, and every time I finished an episode I wanted to eat fresh bread everytime. And this anime jokes about other animes in cameo type epsidoes. I really couldnt stop laughing at some their antics. Kawachi and he manager are the funniest two, and Azuma is the optimistic person who always finds a way to win the competitions with his amazing tasting bread. He never is down, and he will always find a way to make people happy with his odd way of thinking. Kawachi is part of this baking team but his skills are not even close to some of the geniuses he works with, but I keep laughing so hard because of his mistakes and his thoughts. He reacts in his funny ways because he doesnt understand, but he always acts like he is the genius even though everyone knows he is an idiot and tells him that. I really recommend this anime to people to want a great story line, great humor, great music, and just over-all great. I know this was a good anime because at the end of the anime I was really sad to have it, I really wanted more but I just have to move on to the next good anime!
