As any anime fan knows, manga has cliches and stereotypes just the same as American comics do (although not nearly as bad). So, if you're in the mood for something a little different, you've found the right series. The art style is reminiscent of an action series, and the dialogue and storyline is straight out of a serious drama. But this is not an action series(well, it's probably debatable)...it's about a up and coming chef. The characters are distinct and likeable, so don't be surprised if you're hooked by the first chapter. This is indeed a fine gem; give it a look...
