Yakitate!! Japan, Volume 14by Takashi Hashiguchi
At long last, the final, decisive face-off of the Monaco Cup is at hand. Kazuma's intimidating opponent from the U.S., Shadow, undergoes rigorous training at the hands of Kirisaki, the very man who has sworn to crush Team Japan and wipe the Pantasia bakery chain off the face of the earth. Boasting a bread so singularly delicious it rockets whomever eats it on a never-ending journey to the stars, Shadow's baking prowess is enough to leave a lesser baker quaking in fear--but not Kazuma. Can our hero pull off a repeat performance of Japan 44, a bread so sublime it sent the judges straight to Cloud 9?!
