Antique Bakery

Antique Bakery

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.

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.
