Summary


Najika is an aspiring young chef with a flawless sense of taste and a heart of gold. Orphaned at a young age, Najika gravitated toward cooking out of her desire to find her "prince," the mysterious boy who touched her heart and brought light into her life shortly after her parents' death. The only clue to his identity is a silver spoon, which leads Najika to the prestigious Seika Academy, where she faces many challenges on her quest for happiness.

My Thoughts


Review covers 47.5 chapters 

Hello everyone and welcome back to Katie’s Corner! Mini manga review is back with a sweat romance. Have you heard of the manga and anime “Food Wars!”? As anime it has another name I think, but well, who cares about it now, I’ll cover both anime and manga soon. Well, today’s story is very similar to it in cooking, only that.

I loved this story a lot for its simplicity and the good emotions that it brought to me. There were some moments that frustrated me a bit; mostly it was the death of Sora. During one chapter it was very well done, but then it was as if overlooked too fast. Najika did lose her power of taste, but it returned to her too fast.

But the story is still amazing and the cooking tips at the end of each volume are super fun. I hope you’ll find some time to read this fun and sweet story. It’ll cheer you up no matter what. Have fun and stay tuned for more on Katie’s Corner. Happy reading and don’t forget to share your thoughts below!

XOXO


Katie
