Overview

R to L (Japanese Style)

England. France. Germany. What common thread binds these three nations together? Answer: each is famous for producing unique, distinctive, delicious bread. But what of the island nation of Japan, home to rice and delicacies of the sea? Is there not a doughy, gastronomic delight they can claim as their own? The answer is no...until now! Kazuma Azuma, a 16-year-old-boy blessed with otherworldly baking powers, has taken it upon himself to create Ja-pan, the national bread of the land of the rising sun!

In their first televised clash with Kirisaki's celebrity cooking unit, Team Pantasia proves that they're no pushovers, but the battle is far from won. Kirisaki convinces his crew to set aside personal differences and pull together to send Azuma's team packing in the next match. Will Pantasia be able to triumph over their opponent's delectable mango-curry bread with their own creation--one that draws its inspiration from Japan's ancient cultural heritage? And why is Kazuma's grandpa coming over for a visit?!
