Really cute manga. The anime is just as cute if not cuter. Plus you get to learn some new recipes to try. ;)

Sweetness !!

I saw the anime on "Crunchyroll" and fell in love with it so I thought I would check on the manga and I am happy I did.

Even thought I knew what was happening as I saw it animated it was nice to read the manga as well and I hoping to read the next volume soon.

If you are still debating to buy it you can read it on "crunchyroll"

Warm and Light-Hearted


A nice light-hearted manga that will bring your sweet tooth craving for food. If you have ever checked out the anime and didn't like it, be sure to try the manga still, as they are both very different in setup. Also, don't forget to eat before reading this manga, because if you do, you're going to get hungry real quick!

I loved the anime and manga is just as good if not better. Hoping for a second season and more mangas!

After seeing the anime I bought the first manga. The artstyle is a bit different from the anime, but the manga has some stories that are not in the anime. I highly recommend see the anime on crunchyroll. If you like and wanted more then buy the manga to help support.

An excellent cooking manga that just has the feels!

by -

Alright, I have a soft spot for cooking manga of all kinds, but with the volume of material that is coming over, it can be difficult deciding what to pick up.
This title is a decision that I do not regret at all.
The characters are fresh, the story draws you in, and the little cookbook sections designed for a child to understand are golden.
I am looking forward to following along with this story for quite some time :)

as the title suggests, this story is filled with both sweetness and (dramatically poignant)lightning

by -

sweetness and lighting is exactly what the title suggest, a sweet fluffy about a single dad slowly connecting with those around him via his daughter, strung along by your habitual dramatic spikes. I'm happy to say it does both great. The drama and comedy will definitely be hit or miss, but when the drama hits it can hit in a very poignant and heartfelt manner. If your looking for a mostly feel good story about overcoming grief, then look no further

One of the most wholesome series out there

by -

I picked up this series hoping to get a unique slice of life manga. After reading the entire thing, I can confidently say it's one of the most wholesome and unique manga I've ever read. It's got so many cute moments in it, not to mention great art and writing. Definitely a must-read for anyone who likes these kinds of genres, so give it a try.



Just a wholesome good time about family and childhood and cooking.
Like all cooking gimmick titles, you'll learn a lot about food if you're up for it. The sweet story of a single dad and his growing daughter is worth sticking around for too, and the added layer of him helping a high school student with cooking lessons doesn't take anything away from it.
Side note, I really appreciate how this didn't dip into moe or a romance between student and teacher like so many set-ups like this tend to swerve into. There's at best just a bare far future suggestion of a lasting relationship but you don't even have to pay attention to that stuff if you don't want. There's lots of tender feelings all around, not least the warmth of a good meal shared with good memories.

Wholesome and Heartwarming


I originally watched the anime first and absolutely loved it. So picking up the manga was a no brainer. Like others have said, this is a very wholesome and heartwarming manga. I will even say that I got a little emotional myself reading this. It's not the most eventful story, but sometimes it's nice to slow down and enjoy a relaxing tale. Honestly, if you've watched the anime or want a wholesome manga about a dad cooking food for his daughter, then I would absolutely suggest picking this one up.

A sweet read about food and friendship

by -

This is super cute and sweet with a deft touch of grief and loneliness. Food is the star here and each chapter ends with an easy to read and follow recipe. The circumstances under which teacher and student come together is a bit awkward, but child Tsumugi is the saving grace with her exuberance and vibrant love of food. I hope future volumes blend the story into the cooking a bit better. Overall, this is a light and fun read about cooking with love, eating with family, and friends, and overcoming loneliness in unexpected places.
