Ever since she watched a sushi chef prepare fish with artistry and elegance, Hanayu Ashitaba has aspired to become one herself. However, as the daughter of a pâtissièr who is expected to inherit her father's business, her dream remains far out of reach. Nonetheless, Hanayu continues to persevere in hopes of finding a way to realize her goals. That is until she crosses paths with her classmate, Hayato Hyuuga.

The son of a sushi chef, Hyuuga is also destined to take over his father's business, but he is disinterested in doing so. Seeing this as an opportunity to marry into a sushi chef family, Hanayu begins devising a scheme to make Hyuuga fall in love with her. These efforts are quickly wasted when Hyuuga asks her out directly, stunning Hanayu while also making her second-guess using him as a means to an end. At the same time, Hyuuga seems to have a hidden agenda too—but what could it possibly be?

Can you honestly say you have heard of many stories like this? Mixed Vegetables manages to not only tell a love story but also a story about two young students who are passionate about their dreams. As a hardcore fan of shoujo manga, I do have to admit that I am mainly here for the romance aspect. However, Mixed Vegetables focuses on the main characters' striving ...

Okay, so I like food. A lot. I'm not even going to pretend I didn't pick this manga up because I really like sushi and I really like cake. But that's definitely not the only reason why I enjoyed this manga.

The main aspect of the story that made Mixed Vegetables stand out from your typical shoujo fare was its messages about working towards your dreams and fulfilling your goals, while also balancing family life and romance. I started reading this towards the end of my senior year when I was deciding between colleges, and even though the main characters' career paths are vastly different from ...
