A perfect example of judging a book by it's cover!
The art (at least when it's to the female anatomy) is spectacular! Everything else, passable.
The story.... You'd think that the author would have an easy path to writing a story about a chef transported to a world where they literally only cook to survive.... but you'd be wrong. Instead of driving the story home about how food unifies and mends bridges or what not it instead focuses on petty politics, made up drama, and of course over simplification of the most mundane things.... AND THAT WOULD BE FINE AND ALL IF THE MUNDANE THING COULD AT
LEAST BE FOLLOWED LIKE FOOD RECIPES, BUT YOU CANT! ALL FOOD AND INGREDIENTS IS MADE UP SO YOU CAN'T EVEN FACT CHECK IT LOL.
Look, the intro is a solid 8. Outside of how stupid the MC died, or about how important certain things are to then quickly get forgotten all about in the following chapters, It's fine.. New world, cooking knowledge, pretty girls with tragic back stories. What can go wrong? Sorry, that's the wrong question. The correct question is " How do I mess this up?". This is how!
SKIM IT! Hahaha, That's my honest review! It would be too harsh to the artist if we did not appreciate some of the panels he drew the female body in. I mean you can see the front cover of this manga and see that he definitely has talent. His art is wasted on such a story in my honest opinion. I'm not talking about the art with my other brain either, it's genuinely good. So skim it! Just read a page here, skim 20, and so on and you'll be done in less than 1 hour. Honestly the story is so linear that you won't even miss anything anyways! Don't waste your time otherwise!
What did you think of this review?
