Synopsis:

Tachibana has recently quit his job at a high-class firm, and for unknown reasons, decides to open a bakery. His first employee is Ono, an extremely talented patissier who is also known as the 'Gay of demonic charm' - something that has caused him to lose his job countless times. Joining the crew also is Eiji - a retired champion boxer - who is hired on the spot as only a trainee purely because he is not Ono's 'type.' However, Chikage, the bumbling childhood friend and shadow of Tachibana, is exactly his type! Now, with the shop finally open, everyone seems to be filling their positions well; but one question remains: what were Tachibana's motives for opening the bakery, and does it have a link to his troubled and forgotten past?

Both Antique Bakery and Honey and Clover have a soft and relaxing tone most of the time. They are both character driven and give good insight into all the characters lives. Love and friendship are important themes in both.

Whilst hunting for a place to live the two Nanas again cross paths. They decide to share a flat and become best friends in no time.

Two very disprate shows will definitely appeal to the same type of fans. Nana had the dramatic feel of an over the top tv soap, whilst Antique Bakery spends little time on the shounen-ai and more on the development of friendships. If you like to sit back and enjoy two slower paced, emotional filled rides where you feel like you befriend the charming characters, then I highly recommend both of these shows to you.

Antique Bakery isn't for everyone (hints of shounen-ai). BL aside, if you watched either of these shows to stare at beautiful animated pastries, or because you like a slower plot which is mostly happy but has darker elements, you might enjoy the other.

Both animes have a cutesy, fun feel to them while still having their serious situations and conflict to overcome. Also, of course, the obvious similarity additionally being that it's boy x boy (pg13)

Working!!

Working!!

Self-professed lover of all things small and cute, Souta Takanashi finds himself dragooned into working at the Wagnaria family restaurant by the diminutive and vivacious Poplar Taneshima. Though the pay is reasonable and the clientele polite, the high school student is often at his wits' end when dealing with the quirky staff. If the indifferent and street-tough manager, katana-carrying floor chief, and terminally weak Poplar weren't enough, Souta frequently fears for his life, as every encounter with the violently androphobic Inami ends in injury. How long can he survive before the combined stress and harm do him in?

Aside the shonen ai hints in Antique Bakery, both series are forcused in a familiar-like café store where the staff is, at the same time, comedic and life-like build. Laughs secured.

If you enjoy Antique Bakery, you will like the comedy on Working!! And, if you liked Working!! and you don't mind the male-male jokes, you will love Antique Bakery.
