Yakumo-san wa Ezuke ga Shitai is about food, sport and love it's as simple as that.
Nowadys we have a lots of shows that try to be too many things and as result they fail miserably, reading this manga make me realize semplicity works the best if done well.
Yamato Shuuhei is a teenage boy who's living by himself to pursue his dream of playing baseball at high levels so he enrolled in a high school known to be really good at it.
Yakumo Shuuko (28 y.o.) is a widow that loves cooking, since the dead of his husband she lost in part that passion, but knowing
Yamato helped her regain it. It's a slow paced romance, they know each others day by day, start to realying in each others,... It's kinda realistic, which is a good thing in my opinion.
The drawings are always well done and clean. It's a bit static because there isnt a lot of "movement" in this manga, the baseball is not the main focus so that's reasonable.
As the story also the characters are a bit plain, I mean there is nothing particularly interessant about them, that's not a bad thing but in my opinion the author could have made them a bit more different that the usual characters that we see in most of the mangas.
Yamato: he's the main character, he's a highschool student, as far as I remember he has a little sister, which we see in one of the chapters, he's a hardworking guy, also talented in baseball, eats a lot of junk food, that's why Yakumo offers him to eat dinner with her.
Yakumo: she's 28, she has lost the loved one that she met at the university, he was similar to our main protagonist (loved to eat a lot), she's not the flashy type, and never was, she love to cook because she enjoy seeing the satisfied faces of the people after eating her meals.
A lighthearted romcom, no ecchi, absolutly recommended if you want to read something funny and cute, as previously said the romance develop slowly so dont expect too much too soon, just enjoy for what it's!
The way to a mans heart is through his stomach right?
Well this Manga is about a young high schooler living alone training for his baseball team, the future ace of the team in fact. He needs to train and diet, but just fills up on crap junk.
Enter his next door neighbour, a young widow who lives a simple slow life and just happens to love cooking for people who can't do it themselves. A mother hen.
Now these two eat dinner everynight together, a somewhat slow burning romance, starting with Yakumo imaging him to be somewhat like her son, and then something a little
more, and Yamato hinting at a crush on his well endowed neighbour.
Simple story, slow paced, no real ecchiness except one big cleavage panel, just a little cute
