    Trigger Warnings Abuse Domestic ViolenceI managed to continue on my binge reading of this series I was still up after 18 hours awake to finish this volume I would say that this volume was still as good as the other two volumes in the series but it dealt with theserious issue of abuse domestic violence when Ono gets beaten up by an ex after failing to do what the ex wanted, which was to leave his current job and work for him in a bakery in France I initially wanted to label this plot po Trigger Warnings Abuse Domestic ViolenceI managed to continue on my binge reading of this series I was still up after 18 hours awake to finish this volume I would say that this volume was still as good as the other two volumes in the series but it dealt with theserious issue of abuse domestic violence when Ono gets beaten up by an ex after failing to do what the ex wanted, which was to leave his current job and work for him in a bakery in France I initially wanted to label this plot point as problematic but I felt like this book doesn t romanticise the abuse, so that aspect wasn t problematic as it s clearly shown to the reader that abuse is not okay What I would have liked to have seen is for there to have been consequences to the abuse The abuse domestic violence itself wasn t problematic, but I think the way that Ono treats is was problematic Ono accepts the fact that his ex was going to throw a tantrum, but instead of taking himself out of that toxic situation, he walks into it knowing the outcome will be him being beaten up Later, after the ex has accepted that Ono will not be working for him, Ono still thinks of his ex as a friend and encourages Kanda to go to his bakery to try out his pastries It didn t make sense in my head why Ono would still support someone who was abusive towards him I didn t like seeing the ex not having any consequences for his actions, apart from not being able to hire Ono I feel like the consequences should have beenjust There was also the plot line with Chikage which had me raising my eyebrows I won t go into details as it is a massive spoiler, but I didn t like that plot line I would have rather read a different chapter I just thought that the whole situation was really weird, and it s weird how the people sexualized a 9 10 year old girl by saying that she has boobs so she needs a bra It s done in a way that felt creepy to me The father thinking that she needs a bra, and then the mother asking her if she wants to go and buy a bra and she s like, it s okay They ll just grow anyway And the mother being like, She takes after me That whole scene was creepy to me It feels even creepier now that I know the age of the girl, because the manga just says that she is in fourth grade but I didn t know how old that was until I wrote this review.I will continue on and read the last manga in the series I m hoping that this volume was a fluke I m sad to see this series end because I really loved reading it, even this problematic book I don t know if I would recommend this series after reading this volume I ll have to make that assessment once I have finished the last book, and I can judge the series as a whole, which is a shame as I did really enjoy the first two mangas in this series

    Antique bakery is an oddity, it s weak on actual narrative, but has the best character development of any manga I ve come across Every single character is as unique, fleshed out and interesting as the cakes described In this volume we get a lot of flashbacks particularly into the life of Tachibana and Ono and we meet Chikage s daughter who knew Ono s mentaur an ex, French pastry chef Jean Baptiste arrives, makes Ono a job offer he d be hard pressed to refuse AND wants to get back togethe Antique bakery is an oddity, it s weak on actual narrative, but has the best character development of any manga I ve come across Every single character is as unique, fleshed out and interesting as the cakes described In this volume we get a lot of flashbacks particularly into the life of Tachibana and Ono and we meet Chikage s daughter who knew Ono s mentaur an ex, French pastry chef Jean Baptiste arrives, makes Ono a job offer he d be hard pressed to refuse AND wants to get back together with him How can our gay of demonic charm resist This series stands out from almost all the other titles out there because it is very different from the usual manga archytpes you re either going to love that about it or hate it For fans of rich character development it s recommended, but it is slow build and erratic in narrative with flashbacks popping up all over the place with no real warning

    I m not sure if the theme ofAntique BakeryVolume 3 was meant to be abusive relationships , but that s certainly what it felt like The chapters show several relationships that are varying degrees of unhealthy, but also contain empathetic depictions of why people remain in such relationships even after they go south Much of the front half of the volume focuses on Yusuke Ono and his abusive relationship with his boyfriend, Parisian pastry chef Jean Baptiste Hevens, and shows the various wa I m not sure if the theme ofAntique BakeryVolume 3 was meant to be abusive relationships , but that s certainly what it felt like The chapters show several relationships that are varying degrees of unhealthy, but also contain empathetic depictions of why people remain in such relationships even after they go south Much of the front half of the volume focuses on Yusuke Ono and his abusive relationship with his boyfriend, Parisian pastry chef Jean Baptiste Hevens, and shows the various ways Yusuke rationalizes justifies the physical abuse he receives Hevens is a pastry genius who has a tendency to lash out with his fists, not his tongue recommended reading NYT s How the Myth of the Artistic Genius Excuses the Abuse of Women , and takes advantage of many of Yusuke s needs, all while engaging in the classic abuse and apology cycle There s also Deko s relationship with her mother, which certainly doesn t look great, and Mrs Shinjo s financial dependence on her abusive husband.Keiichiro Tachibana probably steals the most development in the volume, though, as we re treated to a catalogue of his past relationship issues Much of them seem to stem from the fact that he is, seemingly by nature, extremely performative Despite working at Antique we know that Keiichiro cares nothing for his products, but is able to pretend otherwise masterfully in order to make a sale Indeed, he seems to have a great many skills even for things he lacks passion in His relationships all seem to fall apart when his girlfriends feel like he s playing a rolethan living a life Good character nuance.One volume left

    This volume continues the theme of light comedy drama, often delivering profound messages about the individual and accepting individuality in the face of society s pressure We see some of this in the story of a pair of female radio announcers who come to Antique Bakery One of them falls for Ono, building a wealth of traditional fantasies around him Doing this with the gay of demonic charm doesn t go the way she d hoped, but both she and Ono learn a littleabout themselves and each othe This volume continues the theme of light comedy drama, often delivering profound messages about the individual and accepting individuality in the face of society s pressure We see some of this in the story of a pair of female radio announcers who come to Antique Bakery One of them falls for Ono, building a wealth of traditional fantasies around him Doing this with the gay of demonic charm doesn t go the way she d hoped, but both she and Ono learn a littleabout themselves and each other While this is happening, the Antique crew face another professional hurdle, when Ono and Chikage participate in a shop demonstration in the mall, forcing Tachibana and Kanda to man the store Everyone grows a little in overcoming this hurdle Ono manages to cope with women, Chikage manages to cope with customers, and the rest of the Antique staff manages to cope without Ono The main character growth happened with Ono and the female announcer when both are forced to question some of their prejudices and the value of them The threat of losing Ono becomes a littlereal when a five star pastry chef and Ono s former mentor and lover arrives, wanting to take Ono back The staff of the Antique learn not to take Ono for granted, while Ono learns that the staff is on his side, no matter what kind of reckless choices he makes Chikage develops a littlewhen a strange girl visits the Antique Bakery, revealing a littleof his shared background with Tachibana Another important lesson is delivered in a heartwarming, at times humorous encounter Never losing its light, playful tone, this manga digs a little deeper into the characters old and new, whom play a part in Antique Bakery, offering off slices of human discovery for those who wish to find them

    I have a soft spot for anything Yoshinaga, I ve realized Sure, sometimes the panels don t line up correctly and it confuses where everyone is in a scene, and sometimes a person s reactions don t make sense, but these books are so good and nuanced that I love them anyways.I had to skip volume two because my library holds freaked out and sent over the wrong volume, but since most of these stories are stand alone, I was able to pick up most of what I missed from the character descriptions and refe I have a soft spot for anything Yoshinaga, I ve realized Sure, sometimes the panels don t line up correctly and it confuses where everyone is in a scene, and sometimes a person s reactions don t make sense, but these books are so good and nuanced that I love them anyways.I had to skip volume two because my library holds freaked out and sent over the wrong volume, but since most of these stories are stand alone, I was able to pick up most of what I missed from the character descriptions and references throughout Chikage s sudden appearance threw me off, but he s cool, so I ll let it slide.Oh my gosh, I could gush about the subtle facial cues and panel placement in order to display complex emotions in this manga all day, but I ll hold myself back In a market where all too often protagonists beat the reader over the head with detailed descriptions of why they re doing what they re doing and what they re feeling, these short panels with little dialogue are such a welcome change of pace I love it My favorite would probably be Tachibana s birthday party scene, but you ll have to read that for yourself.The humor is still great in this volume, not muchto say there.I can t get the next volume for another couple weeks at least, which sucks because I want to read it NOW.Until then, I ll see you in the next review

    The series continues to get darker andrealistic in the emotions, although there is still plenty of humour I think I might have preferred a littleenthusiastic description of food and pastry and a little less PTSD, but that is really not Yoshinaga sensei s way.
