By

Rating
Team Pantasia's harrowing week of intense baking on a deserted island is all but nullified when a crooked member of the Monaco Cup Steering Committee forces Azuma, Kawachi and Suwabara into a rematch. What barren, brutal landscape will be selected as their next proving ground? Huautla Cave in Mexico, one of the deepest and most dangerous caves in the world. It's time for Azuma and company to prepare themselves for some life-or-death subterranean baking!

Reviews

Kazuma Azuma, 16, dreams of creating the national bread of Japan. With his "hands of the sun," he works dough into amazing concoctions. As part of Phantasia bakery, Azuma battles rival Kirisaki of St. Pierre bakeries in a nationally televised bread baking competition, Yakitate!! 25. Each round showcases an ingredient unique to a region of Japan. In volumes 19 and 20, the drama heats up as Team Phantasia suspects Kirisaki has been leaked the top secret ingredients and locations. The dynamic writing and clean art work well together. The lessons on Japanese culture and food science are handled crisply, educating the reader while setting up that round's challenge. Food is rendered in mouth-watering detail. The tasting of the breads offers plenty of humor as the judges explode or transform into mythical creatures. Verdict Yakitate!! reads like the great sports manga, Prince of Tennis or Slam Dunk. It is rated 16+ for fantasy violence, mild fan service, and off-color humor. A great read, this is an imaginative way to discover Japanese food culture.-June Shimonishi, Torrance P.L., CA Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
