The story follows newlywed couple Julia and Takayuki. Julia hails from Germany and Takayuki is a Japanese bank employee. The volume includes the comic itself, recipes for German food appearing in the series, and Eckhardt's commentaries on German culture.
Other published foreign manga artists include Black God (Kurokami) creators Dall-Young Lim and Sung-woo Park, Peepo Choo manga creator Felipe Smith, and American artist Jamie Lano, who worked as an assistant to Takeshi Konomi on his New Prince of Tennis (Shin Tennis no Ōji-sama) manga.
