I didn't enjoy these very much, but they are both slow moving animes. Both have superb animation however. In addition, they're also medieval era centered. The excellent animation makes them both watchable. Fans of one should check the other one out.
These fantasy anime are both incredibly boring (imo) because they take forever to get down to the action/the actual fantasy elements and introduce antagonists. If you can manage to find joy in watching slow-paced magical world anime where beautiful women seemingly never cease their chatting amongst the members of their organization, you're not gonna wanna miss out on the other equally dull title.
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?
Antique Bakery isn't for everyone (hints of shounen-ai). If you're okay with that, like staring at beautiful animated pastries, and like a slower plot which is mostly happy but has darker elements, you might also enjoy Happy Bread.
