Aramiya Satoshi is a seventeen-year-old boy who lives alone on an empty plot of land. While he seems to be a typical teen, in reality he's an ‘apple,' an ultimate lifeform created through evolution. He can take the form of animals, possesses psychic abilities and can even turn into an airborne microbe, so he's sought after by many who would use his powers for good or evil - including Grimm, a young boy who soon moves in with Satoshi...
Hanayu Ashitaba is the successor to a patisserie, but she wants nothing more than to become a sushi chef; Hanato Hyuga is the successor to a sushi shop, but he wants nothing more than to be a patissier. The two attend Oikawa High School where they're training to be chefs, and soon discover their mutual interest in marrying into each other's families just for the job opportunities! Given doing so won't accomplish either of their goals, Hanayu and Hanato resign to staying friends, and work their way towards becoming master chefs. Will the two ever manage to realize their dreams?
Another girl and guy that want to break away from their families' expected careers. Still has a 'food' related storyline. Girl heir to yakuza/gang wants to make apple pies in her own stores. Guy from tartlet shop want to become the boss of a gang leader. Their relationship starts off rocky. Story is a one shot not a series.
While they have different plots, both are action packed shounen one-shots about a boy with strange powers. If you liked one and are looking for another short bit of shounen manga action, then you should try the other.
