Yakitate!! Japan, Volume 19by Takashi Hashiguchi
R to L (Japanese Style). Kazuma Azuma's team Pantasia is one defeat away from losing their shop as they enter round six of the Yakitate 25 baking competition. Their opponent is Mokoyama, a man in a panda suit whose silly exterior belies his great baking power...and otherworldly baking powder. If that weren't enough to bear, Azuma must teach a lesson to a spoiled mini-gourmand who insists on having his bread and eating it too. Will Team Pantasia rise to the occasion or run out of steam?
