Sweetness and Lightning
Volume 1


Inuzuka is a teacher who has been caring on his own for his little daughter, Tsumugi, since his wife's death. He's no good at cooking, so they've been eating packaged meals from the convenience store. A series of events lead him one evening to a restaurant run by the mother of one of his students, Kotori. Her mother isn't there, but Kotori does her best to feed them both. It turns out that Kotori is often alone, since her parents are divorced and her mother is frequently not around. The three of them begin to meet and cook tasty food together.

I watched the anime and read the manga, and well its good. I'm not gonna write much other than its a nice slice of life to read, and the only thing that I was upset over is that *SLIGHT SPOILER* they don't smash. That really killed it for me. Other than that its a great read and its fairly short and easy to binge read in a day or two.

Now for some fluff, The characters are enjoyable except for their dense nature of not being able to tell each other how they feel when they clearly hint in their internal monologues that they think read more

Amaama to Inazuma (2013-2018)

Started reading this whilst watching the anime and smashed it all out pretty quickly. That to me shows it was enjoyable since I was able to focus so much.

The story is very nice. Initially, a man lost his wife and he cares for his daughter in a daunting prospect to take on two-parent roles alone. He does make some great friends within a few months that leads to a great ongoing and hopefully forever relationship both romantically and not romantically. Friends along the way on both sides help influence the story and keep it going at a good pace.

Story - The story is really great. This manga's main focus was food and the recipes and the father-daughter relationship. It was full of overloaded cuteness--- KAWAII ---. Loved the ending. But in the middle of the story, there was a little bit of romance and love which wasn't fulfilled. It left an unsatisfied feeling. But at the end of the manga, the mangaka made up to it.

Art- The art if this manga is good. Nothing to criticize about in my eyes. It showed a great number of details about everything. When the recipes were mentioned, the ingredients were shown nicely or rather perfectly and read more

I'm telling you.. the amount of fluff in this manga's probably illegal somewhere.

the story may not be the most original; a single father raising his young daughter with the help of some really nice people, we saw that in many mangas like Usagi drop (before in went to hell), My girl, etc.. but while all of them focus on the struggles and joys of daily life we find that this particular manga appeals to both your kororo and stomach, I've actually found myself googling many of the recipes that they introduce in this manga which is a pretty nice treat if you're a food lover read more
