Thanks to his legendary “Hands of the Sun,” unnaturally warm hands that allow dough to ferment faster, Kazuma's bread is like a slice of Heaven. And when the Pantasia Rookie Competition arrives, everyone will get a taste of his skill! Along with his friend Kawachi, he'll go up against koala karate masters, Harvard bread scientists, samurai with rolling-pin swords and more as he bakes his way to glory!

The manga serialized in Shogakukan's Weekly Shōnen Sunday magazine from 2001 to 2007. Viz Media released all 26 compiled book volumes in English.

The 69-episode anime premiered in 2004. Right Stuf released the series on DVD with English subtitles.
