Special Parfait of the Week: Yakitate!! Japan

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Kazuma 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...


Get ready to fall in love with breads as this series talks about bread and bread alone. If you are a baker, then you would also consider this series as a tutorial to enhance your baking skills as Kazuma Kazuma has explored no boundaries to develop the best Japanese bread.

This is a highly entertaining one since this is very rich in puns of famous people, characters, events and any other weird ideas there is. Each time one eats a bread, the reactions are so so so funny and so out-of-this world. I first watched this series on our local anime channel, Hero TV but for more updated episodes, I preferred to watch this on subs. And it was really much funnier to watch its original version since the puns are based on Japanese practice and bacgkround. Nevertheless, the vernacularized version is still funny to watch.

Music wise, it is also very entertaining. You can get music from Rythem, Hummingbird and as a bonus, you will see Manager Ken dancing.

I would really want more of this. 52 episodes is not enough for all the cracks and the weirdness that this series could bring to all of us. I really hope that there's a new season coming.

But anyway, we could still make do with the 52 episodes available. People, please try watching this one. You would really never regret it :)


  1. PIERROT(?) ~ XDDD Kawachi is funny too :D

  2. Here, here. I mean it is disappointing that they ended it a bit prematurely, (even though it's nothing new to anime lately) but nevertheless it is such a fun and (surprisingly) educational series. I've never looked at bread the same way since. XD
