I saw this manga at the bookstore, and was intrigued enough by the cover to pick up a volume to give it a try. I must say, it wasn't money wasted... just not put to the amount of enjoyment that I wanted. Don't get me wrong, this manga is definately a ten- if you're around eight years old. That is precisely the age group that this manga was written for.

The plot is typical for a young girl's manga- a bright, bubbly girl as the lead, and two boys competing for her heart. Knowing that it was for young girls didn't make the plotline more palatable- read more

This is an outstanding manga.
story is about a female heroine who has absolute taste in food and can create dishes that brings smiles to everyone. the heroine is an orphan raised in Hokkaido with people that are warm and supportive of her cooking. Her deceased parents were also one of the greatest pastry chefs known all around the world. Because of her family history as well as her absolute taste, she gets invited to a prestigious school. One of the main reasons for the heroine to accept the scholarship to the school is to find her Flan Prince who's given her strength during her read more

Simply put, it's a sugar-encrusted dessert of a manga.

More elaborately put...well, let's start simply with the characters. Our protagonist Najika has a tragic history, but is an excellent cook and seems to be a very kind, caring and generally nice person. A little bit of a Mary-Sue, but not horrible.

Our two male leads don't have much background when we first meet them, and though this does change later, we still aren't very sympathetic with their love for Najika. The supporting cast is mediocre at best, most of the characters fitting easily into stereotypes without much pushing and shoving.

The tragedy of Najika's past is continually put read more

In both manga the heroine has an excellent sense of taste and got into a special school thanks to someone's recommendation. While Najica plans to become a chef and is already good at cooking, Ichigo wants to become a pâtissière just like her grandmother and is a complete beginner.

The circumstances and characters and their relationships to each other have a similar feel to it.
both are about a girl caught in a love triangle with a pair of brothers. they start off light and cute but also have their share of sadness

I'm actually shocked this isn't on the top of the reccomendation list for Kitchen Princess.
The mangakas for Kitchen Princess is clearly quite heavily inspired by Arina Tanemura, particularly in her art-style. However I have an inkling that the creators of Kitchen Princess closely followed the storyline of Shinshi Doumei Cross.
The plotlines for these two manga are very similar- A girl attends a particular high school in search of her long-lost prince who saved her in her childhood in one form or another. In both, her 'prince' comes from a wealthy family while she is orphaned. Brothers are involved in both, in both the girl is looked down upon by the school, etc etc. very, very similar- Although personally, I think Shinshi Doumei Cross is MUCH better. Kitchen Princess, however, is much more child-friendly.
They are both stories about a girl who works in a bakery or a cafe and knows two boys who help her out.

Both main characters originate from Hokkaido and move to Tokyo for higher prospects. Tanpopo and Najika are both strong and cheerful heroines, and their love interests do their best to support them in their endeavors. As Kitchen Princess focuses on cooking, Imadoki concentrates more on gardening.
