Yakitate!! Japan (焼きたて!! ジャぱん, lit. "Freshly Baked!! Ja-pan")[a] is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Takashi Hashiguchi. It was serialized in Shogakukan's Weekly Shōnen Sunday from December 2001 to January 2007, with its chapters collected in twenty-six tankōbon volumes. A 69-episode anime television series adaptation by Sunrise was broadcast on TV Tokyo from October 2004 to March 2006. In North America, the manga was licensed in English by Viz Media in 2005 and Nozomi Entertainment licensed the anime series in 2014. Yakitate!! Japan won the 49th Shogakukan Manga Award for the shōnen category in 2004.

Plot[edit]

Kazuma Azuma is a boy on a quest to create "Ja-pan", a national bread for Japan, as many other countries have their own signature breads. He heads to Tokyo with the intention of working at the famous bread-making chain Pantasia. Along the way, he meets other bakers, both learning from and competing against them. The characters bake their bread using their burning passion and even anger, similar to the legendary Kanjitake (河内 恭) cooking style of Hokkaido. Besides a desire to create Ja-pan, Azuma also possesses legendary Hands of the Sun (太陽の手, Taiyō no Te): hands that are warmer than typical, prompting dough to ferment faster. While this gives him an advantage early on, his innovation is his greater talent.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ The title of the series is a play on words; "Yakitate" translates to "freshly baked", but "Ja-pan" has a double meaning. Besides referring to the country of Japan, pan is the Japanese word for "bread" that was borrowed and slightly altered from Portuguese pão.[4]
  2. ^ The 2007–6th issue of the magazine (cover date January 24) was published on January 10, 2007.[7]
