Addicted to Curry begins with a young schoolgirl named Sonezaki Yui. One day she encounters what looks like a half dead man in the middle of the road. Not knowing what to do she throws some food at him (so he can at least survive) and runs away. She then returns to her home, which is also her father's Ganesha Curry restaurant. The man who Yui encountered was Koenji Makito, who knew Yui's father Souichiro and was actually looking for him. Following Yui's scent Koenji finds her and the restaurant. Yui initially thinks Koenji is going to kill her for throwing food at him, but after they talk she finds out that he knew her father. Koenji then finds out that the restaurant is going out of business and that Yui's father go on journey to improve his curry cooking techniques. To repay Yui's father for helping him out Koenji decides to team up with Yui to save the curry restaurant.

Many of you will most likely have heard of "Yakitate Japan", the famous manga based on cooking bread. Falling under the shadow of such a formidable title is the lesser known manga, "Addicted to Curry," an equally good manga, but about curry instead of bread. I personally found "Curry" an enjoyable, laughable manga to read, and would encourage you to read it, especially if you love curry. I like cooking, and I like curry, so I really liked Addicted to Curry.
Addicted to Curry has a very..."followable" plot, making the transition from chapter to chapter clear and smooth. While each arc spans several (10+) chapters, within read more

Those who wanted to learn how to cook, or those who wanted to improve their cooking skills will find Addicted to Curry suitable and interesting for them. Although this curry manga is not yet an anime, I'm sure it will be an interesting "curry anime" soon. However, this curry manga is not just about cooking and curry-talk! It contains fighting, guns and knives, for those who have interest in the weapons of destruction. This manga is somehow ... uh ... ecchi (meaning very small amount of inappropriate stuff) so I recommand those who do not like "a bit of gay" don't read it.But, those who read more

This have to be the one manga that I have felt in love to, I never have experience the same joy with another manga and I hope I can be as unbiased as possible in this review so here goes nothing...

Story 5/10

There isn`t something new here, nothing ground breaking really the title pretty much explain all the plot is about THE curry, well to be fair is about cooking curry in different circumstances with a few pinches of sweet vanilla and bitter tragedy here and there.
Is a bittersweet story that revolves around curry.

Art 7/10

Just above average (pretty simple)

Character 8/10

Now we are getting the the main read more

To be blunt, Addicted to Curry has a very mediocre plot, rounded off with forgettable (but not unlikeable) characters and slightly above average art. In all honesty, I feel that it merits a 5/10,but I gave it a rating of 6/10 because of my soft spot for food/cooking manga.

Why didn't Addicted to Curry manage to hold my interest?

To sum it up, it is because of the stale story and almost non-existent plot development. I had high expectations for this manga because of its good ratings, and simply due to the fact that it was about cooking curry. But I was disappointed with how read more
