A high school crush, a world-class pastry chef, a former middle-weight boxing champion... and a whole lot of cake!
Ono has come a long way since the agonizing day in high school when he confessed his love to handsome Tachibana. Now, some 14 years later Ono, a world-class pastry chef and gay playboy has it all. No man can resist Ono's charms (or his cooking skills!) but he has just found a new position under a man named Tachibana. Can this be the only man who resisted his charms, and if so, will the man who once snubbed the "magically gay" Ono get his just deserts? And how in the heck did a former middleweight boxing champion wind up as Ono's cake boy?

If you are looking for some yaoi action or BL (boys love) unfortunately this anime is not really the case. Even though we have a character who is gay, the story doesn't focus a lot on it.

This anime has kind of a dark storie that happend to one of the main characters when he was a kid and how his life changed after it.

It was not a great anime, but I still enjoyed watching it.

If you want to know more about how their ...

So, I liked this anime quite a bit. It wasn't anything overly extraordinary, but it did execute a number of concepts very well with other anime struggle with.

One of the main things I'd like to mention is how they treated homosexuality in the series. The thing is, with anime there's usually a strong dividing line between "Gay Anime" and "Straight Anime". If anime is "gay-centric" it'll be a romance either centered around gay men or gay women exclusively. But this anime does something different, where it introduces gay and bi characters, but makes them and their romantic situations incidental to the ...

Honestly I have no idea how anyone could give this show a score above a 5. Typically I do not even finish shows that I deem a 5 or lower, but for some reason I kept on hoping it would get better.


TDLR: Please do not waste your time watching this anime. It is mediocre at BEST.

Story: 3
Lets be honest: The premise is stupid. A guy decides to drop everything to open a cake shop in order to one day catch the man who kidnapped him because the man made him eat cake every day. However, even with such a dumb premise, ...
