Having experimented on his family with his culinary creations, there is only so much Kazuma can do alone, even if he is blessed with solar hands - something that many bakers would kill for. In order to enhance his skills and achieve his goals, Kazuma decides to relocate to Tokyo in order to work at the renowned bakery chain Pantasia. However, when he arrives he discovers that he has to compete against over thirty people in an entrance exam; and to make matters worse, Kazuma arrives late, chopping off half of his total points from the get go! Can Kazuma beat the odds and pass the exam, let alone create the perfect ‘Ja-pan'?
