Review by

I really thoroughly enjoyed this. I've never quite read a manga of this type before. It's a straight story, no magic or fantasy nd set in the real world of today but it's hilarious. At first I foud myself thinking how utterly unrealitic the story was, but then laughed because, yeah, all the other manga I read is so realistic, right? LOL So I got over that and became totally invested in the characters and the story. I amazingly really liked this dude! Plus the antics are hilarious. While he is a wonderful chef he also likes to make perfectly horrid dishes like squid and peanut butter and make people eat them. There is no sex but when someone eats something that tastes totally divine they are morphed into a dream where they are naked, in ecstacy, and things are wrapped around the naughty bits, like a snake or clouds or steam. Now of course, this is usually female nakedness but men do get the same treatment ocaassaionally and there was a nice beefcake illustration [grin] . Anyway, that's why the 16+ publisher ratng on this one. I might just continue on with one as it's so different from anything else I'm reading. I'd only have a few volumes to catch up on to be up-to-date.
