    Okay, this was really, really good I admit I would never have thought it when I started reading this, but it slowly developed from aor less ridiculous concept to a great story about four people who I came to care about a lot.In the beginning, it seems rather disjointed, but it makes sense like the first couple of episodes of a tv show it takes some time getting to know the characters But then slowly their backstories are told and it was just great to see what these characters were li Okay, this was really, really good I admit I would never have thought it when I started reading this, but it slowly developed from aor less ridiculous concept to a great story about four people who I came to care about a lot.In the beginning, it seems rather disjointed, but it makes sense like the first couple of episodes of a tv show it takes some time getting to know the characters But then slowly their backstories are told and it was just great to see what these characters were like how they weren t what I thought they were like initially.I also loved how pieces from the earlier chapters ended up playing an important role later And while it was really funny and cute at times, it also was rather sad at others, and I admit that I would have wished for a happy ending for Ono and Chikage, but since the story isn t over over at that point I can still think of them living happily ever after if I want, right Seriously, this was good I m kind of blown away by how much I liked this

    I enjoyed reading this book and this series However, I do think that this volume was a slight let down but overall I did enjoy the series I felt like the plot with the kidnapper was resolved too quickly and the ending was a bit bitter sweet The rest of the volumes gave me feeling of happiness but now I m sad because of the ending and that the series has finished I liked the fact that whilst was a yaoi manga, it didn t have any problematic elements around being gay gay people relationships I I enjoyed reading this book and this series However, I do think that this volume was a slight let down but overall I did enjoy the series I felt like the plot with the kidnapper was resolved too quickly and the ending was a bit bitter sweet The rest of the volumes gave me feeling of happiness but now I m sad because of the ending and that the series has finished I liked the fact that whilst was a yaoi manga, it didn t have any problematic elements around being gay gay people relationships I would recommend this series but I would warn people that it s a bit like a slice of life manga series about a bakery so not a lot of things will happen beyond friendships forming and developing, alongside the kidnapper plot I do think that the series is gripping, but it did take me longer then I would have liked to have finished this volume

    4.5 5 The fourth and conclusive volume of Fumi Yoshinaga s Antique Bakery is what happens when you ve carefully prepared all your plot ingredients, let them bake in the oven for a couple hundred pages, sprinkled just the right mix of character development throughout, and produced a pastry combining bold and intriguing and rare and playful flavors Yes that s a horrible analogy but the least I could do was try tl dr The fundamental purposes of the Antique hinted at back in volume 2 is 4.5 5 The fourth and conclusive volume of Fumi Yoshinaga s Antique Bakery is what happens when you ve carefully prepared all your plot ingredients, let them bake in the oven for a couple hundred pages, sprinkled just the right mix of character development throughout, and produced a pastry combining bold and intriguing and rare and playful flavors Yes that s a horrible analogy but the least I could do was try tl dr The fundamental purposes of the Antique hinted at back in volume 2 is finally realized when news breaks of a serial killer targeting young boys, the contents of their stomachs indicating they d been fed the very pastries Keiichirou Tachibana has been selling The process of stopping the killer allows Keiichirou to exorcise the demons from his own kidnapping ordeal, and ends with everyone slowly moving on to the next stages of their lives.Retrospectively reflecting on the series as a whole, I immensely enjoyed Antique Bakery s mix of slice of life antics, rom com shenanigans, slow burn mysteries and veritable deluge of food porn Yoshinaga s characters always have a refreshingly realistic depth to them, along with beat perfect comedic timing and an immense depth of culinary knowledge The gay relationships in Antique Bakery are written with a fair degreenuance than you usually get in yaoi BL stories Though Yuusuke Ono, the very openly gay pastry chef at Antique, does sometimes veer close to gay stereotype territory, his character is otherwise nuanced, complex, and empathetic Though he also has that unfortunate trait of gynophobia, which is one of those tropes that anime manga seem to love using for comedic effect, for whatever reason Eiji Kanda and Chikage Kobayakawa getthan sufficient character development in their own rights, and the story manages to conclude everyone s arcs with surprisingly satisfactory tidiness.Overall if you want a unique blend of romance, drama, mystery, and food, you definitely can t go wrong with Antique Bakery Thanks again to officialao3fandomlastforever for recommending it to me in the first place

    What else can I say about this series It s old and everyone knows about it it won the Kodansha Award in 2002 for shoujo manga yes, it s a shoujo manga and not a BL , and Fumi Yoshinaga is a multi award winning mangaka This manga series has had a Korean movie and a Japanese TV drama based on it the Korean version is better, as they rewrote a lot of things about Ono in the TV drama So it s good and anyone who wants to read a gentle story about to paraphrase Tachibana how sweets and past What else can I say about this series It s old and everyone knows about it it won the Kodansha Award in 2002 for shoujo manga yes, it s a shoujo manga and not a BL , and Fumi Yoshinaga is a multi award winning mangaka This manga series has had a Korean movie and a Japanese TV drama based on it the Korean version is better, as they rewrote a lot of things about Ono in the TV drama So it s good and anyone who wants to read a gentle story about to paraphrase Tachibana how sweets and pastries play a role in our lives should give it a try The characters we meet are not always nice and some of them especially in the final volume are downright nasty, but there s always this gentleness that permeates this manga I m not sure if it s the way they talk very polite for the most part or the way the expressions are drawn Fumi Yoshinaga has very delicate line work , but it s just so gentle you know And almost nostalgic I haven t read all of her work, but I can say that while they re mostly grounded in reality e.g Ono s relationship with his family after he came out, very similar to What did you eat yesterday there s also a feeling of this is what the world should be like, and how we can be kinder people in the ones that I ve read and love This and Ono Natsume s Gente are my go to manga series when I want something soothing actually

    I respect the refusal to close, but on the particular day I was reading this, I really would have enjoyed a clear happy ending with good closure Of course it isreal like this, with the openness of it and the lack of solution, and there is a lot to that, so I see it both ways, I suppose.In particular, view spoiler I am talking about the lack of a magic wand to fix Tachibana s PTSD, and the very real bait and switch of Chikage declaring Tachibana to be Fixed and then, of course, he is I respect the refusal to close, but on the particular day I was reading this, I really would have enjoyed a clear happy ending with good closure Of course it isreal like this, with the openness of it and the lack of solution, and there is a lot to that, so I see it both ways, I suppose.In particular, view spoiler I am talking about the lack of a magic wand to fix Tachibana s PTSD, and the very real bait and switch of Chikage declaring Tachibana to be Fixed and then, of course, he is not fixed at all, PTSD does not work like that He is better for having helped the other child, but he was still traumatised and still has a hole in his memories and experience from the kidnapping, and it does not just go away That he is able to now start to look at the possibility that he s attracted to Ono is interesting as well, but I liked the Ono Chikage possibility, so I was hoping for clear if temporary romance between them hide spoiler That being said, I think it has a lot of value in how real the psychology is, so all right, four stars even if I was grumpy because the day I read it I wished for simple things

    Overall score 4.5 stars This refreshing and surprisingly heartfelt series achieves an incredible mixture of beautiful artwork, scrumptious descriptions of the gourmet desserts, and unforgettable characters All within 4 simple volumes That s impressive, to say the least In my manga reading experience, it usually takes at least 6 volumes to establish a fuller story, and, for this level of characterization, at least 8 10 volumes Antique Bakery s length is half of that and still manages to Overall score 4.5 stars This refreshing and surprisingly heartfelt series achieves an incredible mixture of beautiful artwork, scrumptious descriptions of the gourmet desserts, and unforgettable characters All within 4 simple volumes That s impressive, to say the least In my manga reading experience, it usually takes at least 6 volumes to establish a fuller story, and, for this level of characterization, at least 8 10 volumes Antique Bakery s length is half of that and still manages to bringto the table We have full, complex back stories of each of the four men who work the bakery, as well as side stories, and great chemistry between them all I agree with one of the reviewers its one major downside is the sloppy narrative structure that does eventually straighten out in the final volume Flashbacks come out of nowhere, sometimes, andoften than not, don t even have the telltale black borders that most manga flashbacks have Transitions are next to nil, and many topics characters are dropped almost instantly after introduction However.like the other review said, the flawless character development kinda makes up for it This may not be a necessary favorite of mine, but that doesn t make it any less enjoyable or recommendable It s a sweet and often, bittersweet of four adult men whose estranged pasts slowly change for the better

    I m addicted to this series The idea seems absurd, men running a French styled bakery in Japan, but it s a funny and in depth exploration of 4 people Tachibana and Ono are the original characters and I love them the most particularly Tachibana , but the addition of the young boxer and the body guard Chikage opened the series up to make it evendelightful Yes, they re all gorgeous looking men, too, which somehow makes it evenridiculous since their lives are just as messed up as e I m addicted to this series The idea seems absurd, men running a French styled bakery in Japan, but it s a funny and in depth exploration of 4 people Tachibana and Ono are the original characters and I love them the most particularly Tachibana , but the addition of the young boxer and the body guard Chikage opened the series up to make it evendelightful Yes, they re all gorgeous looking men, too, which somehow makes it evenridiculous since their lives are just as messed up as everyone else s.There s also the description of the cakes.Oh my lord, makes me want an Antique Bakery down the road from me.Lots of interesting plot lines are explored as well kidnapping, romance, the dangers of gay life, men s take on women, parents and children, etc Good read Great read and top entertainment
