Tachibana is an heir to a huge and successful corporation. He can speak five languages, play musical instruments, and has even passed the bar exam, so naturally he's now... running a bakery?! At the Antique Bakery, Ono, known as the ‘Gay of demonic charm' is serves as the head patissier; ex-boxing pro Eiji works as Ono's apprentice; and Tachibana's bumbling henchman and shadow, Chikage, helps out to the best of his rather limited abilities. As a carefree ladies man, Tachibana is always ready to turn on the charm if it means getting a sale, though aside from his love of women, no one really knows why the grandson of a successful businessman would suddenly decide to open a bakery. Could a traumatic event in Tachibana's past have anything to do with why he set up shop?
Of all Fumi Yoshinaga's manga, these two seem the most similar. Both are about a group of people and their everyday lives, and are full of engaging banter, interesting characters, and light drama. Both have a sort of cute, airy atmosphere, and make for pleasant mostly-light reading.
Sixteen-year-old Mikako Kouda has two loves in her life: fashion, and her childhood friend Tsutomu Yamaguchi. Though she dreams of creating her own clothing brand someday, Mikako's true desires lie with Tsutomu - but there's a problem: he's dating the voluptuous and highly-sought-after "Body-Ko!" The two longtime companions seem to have feelings for each other, but school, other relationships and additional obstacles continue to stand in their way. Will Mikako and Tsutomu ever be together?
Both of these shoujo manga revolve around a group of friends/classmates and their families/teachers, and have a similar blend of lighthearted fun and character drama. The cast of each is the selling point- unlike most high school-oriented manga, you're not going to run into carbon copies of these characters elsewhere, they all feel fresh and well-rounded.
