Yakitate!! Japan, Volume 11by Takashi Hashiguchi
Kazuma and company face another uniquely unconventional challenge in the semifinals of the Monaco Cup--they must prepare tasty loaves of sports bread that will satisfy the needs of F1 racers. This time, though, Pantasia's opponents are the dreaded Kayser Brothers of France, craftsmen whose seemingly unsurpassable skills--and very freaky appearances--have sent lesser bakers into early retirement. Will an audience with the King of Monaco give Kazuma a much-needed edge? And what on earth is a sports bread anyway?!
