Aside from her deep passion for eating cakes, the clumsy Ichigo Amano has never been successful at anything. After an encounter with Henri Lucas, a famous patissier, Ichigo's amazing tasting abilities—although unbeknownst to her—are discovered. Recognizing her talent, Henri offers her the chance to attend St. Marie Academy, a prestigious culinary school which specializes in desserts.
In spite of the fact that she is a beginner lacking skills, thanks to Henri's recommendation, Ichigo is placed in the topmost group with the "Sweets Princes." The princes, famous throughout the school for their magical treats, are Sennosuke Andou, an expert in traditional Japanese sweets; Satsuki Hanabusa, with a flair for candied flowers; and Makoto Kashino, a gifted chocolatier. Ichigo and the Sweets Princes, each accompanied by their "Sweets Spirits"—fairies who make patissiers' dreams come true—all work towards their goals in the competitive world of sweets.
Have you ever had a dream of being a patissiere? Have you ever dreamed of making everyone happy with what you make so that you wouldn't be thought of someone who's a failure? That is exactly Amano Ichigo's dream: to be a world famous patissiere and spread happiness through her sweets.
It sounds like a common story of how a kid strives to make her dreams come true. But this show actually got me and I don't know why. I didn't really like Mirmo de Pon and Gakuen Alice bore me a little but this anime really had me going from 1 episode to another. It's a good mix of Yakitate! Japan, Mirmo de Pon and the characters really reminded me of Gakuen Alice.
Don't underestimate this series, because I for one thought it wasn't something but I really got hooked to it - and I'm a fan of drama anime hahah. So if you want an inspiring, light and sweet anime, I really recommend this one to you.
My Final Ratings are:
Story : 7 > common but i really like the idea of the Princes of Sweets
Art : 8 > it is pretty good for a kid's anime but it isn't far from the styles of Mirmo and Alice Academy
Sound : 7 > A little repetitive but fits right in
Character: 8 > so far the characters are having really well developments and they have mysteries with their past
Enjoyment: 8> I AM a fan of sweets so i really enjoyed this anime. It also has it's fun and down moments that keeps it down to earth.
Overall: 8 > It' s really good for an one who loves food,cooking, great characters and a little magic
Yumeiro Patissiere is not a series with a unique storyline but it is definitely enjoyable and you would not regret watching it.
In my opinion, the first time I watched it, I find it a tad bit boring because this movie contains A LOT of fillers but the story progresses as you watch more episodes so do watch MORE episodes cause they will definitely get you hooked onto it.
It was a so-so story, not an original story (Think: Gakuen Alice) A girl who has no talents in cooking except eating but she does has an incredible palate comes into the story, recommended by a famous Patissiere and she goes to school and tries to get accepted.
But the story does get interesting as you watch more - to me, the part where they joined the Cake Grand Prix was REALLY interesting. It was so intense that I sometimes shudder at the thought of who won and who lose cause it is SO unpredictable that it makes the viewers wonder what will happen next.
There is a little romance in the series which makes it really cute! At first, I thought the addition of the fairies were a little silly since all they did was just chant a few noises here and there but eventually, I noticed they do play an important role in cheering the Team up.
I liked the chibi fairies and they were really cute especially Caramel-desu! Love her! And Cafe-kun of course.
The concept of the Sweet Princes were interesting as well.
I LOVE the songs for the opening and the ending but I have to admit, the ending was more catchy :D Don't you DARE forget the background music (OST) They were INCREDIBLE. I loved the background music the most. Probably the best part of the series. You should take note of the background music from time to time asit really fits the mood.
For example, the sad ones would be really sad. Try listening - it has a soft melodic touch to it. Sometimes during the competition part, they play those "nervous" music which is really a nice touch to the nervous mood of the episodes.
I like the art. They were clean and crisp and the background is really nice. I'm a sucker for nice background art and it's important for them to look good. As for the desserts - DUDE, have you ever watched Yumeiro Patissiere and NOT get hungry? Cause I always tend to get hungry when I watch them.
And I crave for chocolates - A LOT.
Damn, these series sure makes me crave for sweets a lot even though I'm more of a fan of savoury. That proves the art is great ;)
Amano Ichigo is very much alike as most female protagonists - optimistic, cheerful, tries her best in everything although she has no skills - they're quite cliche aren't they? But I love them because in my everyday life - each time I'm about to say "I can't do it" I would always think of these characters and wonder to myself - if they can, I can as well. So these characters are a really great addition to the story.
The Sweet Princes - The characters are alright - Kashino being very mean spirited and all but that makes him really cute :3
Did I mention how much I love Hanabusa-kun's character? He is SO darn funny. Watch the series further to know more of his character. You would definitely love him.
As for the rest- the sweet spirits, they were really cute as well! Cafe-kun is super adorable.
Koshiro-san - one REALLY annoying girl that you would probably hate yet love because she's a great supporting character in the series.
Enjoyment: 9/10: Overall, it's a great watch which makes me happy because looking at how hard someone works just to be on top and even though it ain't reality, it's always good to step out of reality once in a while and enjoy yourselves watching light-hearted anime.
Decent storyline but interesting as you progress. Definitely worth a watch ;)
If you happened to stumble across this anime like I did you might want to do yourself a favor and watch.
Over this anime is very good in my books the Art is magnificent, the story is great, and the characters are quite unique.
Ichigo Amano the main character is a very clumsy girl, and she has a sweet personality. Vanilla her sweet spirit is like a chibi french doll quite adorable but a little headstrong. As Ichigo progresses in school with the 3 Sweet Princes whom each have their own spirits, she faces constant scrutinizing from others and has to practice extra to get everything right.
Its very likeable and cute if you like female heroine titles, shes outgoing and very cheerful. The Sweet Princes balance off the anime quite well and ofcourse you have your school idol and evil girl gang in there as well. As its progressing right now if you like coming of age stories and friendship developments this anime is definitely for you.
Yumeiro Patissiere is an interesting anime that got me hooked up in the first few episodes. It tells about how a clumsy girl, Ichigo that doesn't know anything about being a patissiere achieving her goal and becoming one of the best patissiere in the academy. She achieves her goal with the help of 3 princes in her class which has the best grades in that year. Ichigo even has her own Sweets Spirit on her first day when she arrived at the academy, the 3 princes also has Sweets Spirits that help them become better Patissiere.
Overall, I really enjoyed the anime, I was interested on how she was trying so hard to achieve her goal as a Patissiere so she can go to Paris and study at that academy. I really like how all the sweets in the anime look so cute and delicious making me hungry. read more
