Yakitate!! Japan, Volume 10

Takashi Hashiguchi

Are you ready for the Iron Chef of bread?! Manga shall not live by bread alone.

England. France. Germany. What common thread binds these three nations together? Answer: each is famous for producing unique, distinctive, delicious bread. But what about Japan, home to rice and delicacies of the sea? Is there not a doughy, gastronomic delight they can claim as their own? The answer is no...until now! Kazuma Azuma, a 16-year-old-boy blessed with otherworldly baking powers, has taken it upon himself to create Ja-pan, the national bread of the land of the rising sun!

Team Pantasia's harrowing week of intense baking on a deserted island is all but nullified when a crooked member of the Monaco Cup Steering Committee forces Azuma, Kawachi and Suwabara into a rematch. What barren, brutal landscape will be selected as their next proving ground? Huautla Cave in Mexico, one of the deepest and most dangerous caves in the world. It's time for Azuma and company to prepare themselves for some life-or-death subterranean baking!
