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'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

Amaama to Inazuma MAL review

Barakamon, Usagi Drop, My Girl, Yotsuba, Amaama to Inazuma.

What do all of these have in common? They’re all heartwarming stories about a child, (not a loli) their guardian and their daily life. Amaama to Inazuma is not as heavy themed as My Girl. It’s not as weird as Usagi Drop nor is it as carefree as Barakamon or Yotsuba. It’s delightful, charming and doesn’t get (too) involved in drama, while still maintaining a (somewhat) coherent story.


The story is about father and daughter, Kouhei and Tsumugi, their daily life and discovery of new types of food. Kouhei is a math teacher and read more

A delightful little cooking manga that's remarkably re-readable.


Sweetness and Lighting uses a highly episodic structure, so it's fairly easy to pick up at any point. Gido Amakure definitely went for a light tone here, we're talking Full House levels of drama. Yet while this manga clearly leans towards cute and happy, it never quite crosses the line into a full-blown unreadable saccharine glob of pandering. It knows what it is and sticks to that.


Most of the effort goes into drawing the characters (particularly Tsumugi and Kotori's cute eating expressions) and the food itself. Backgrounds are quite basic and often minimal, with little more detail than read more

Having tried to watch the anime and read the manga, I think I've had enough of this series in general. Not only are the characters shallow, the plot is monotonous and there is absolutely no important development. I've seen and read some decent (and good) slice of life manga and anime, and this just doesn't cut it for me.

Story: 5. It was cute and exciting at first, but it gets hard to keep up the antic for the series in general. Although it does teach about cooking, you'd be better off watching a Japanese cooking show (more detail and better commentary as well). Having read more
