ANIME REVIEW: Antique Bakery

Antique Bakery ~ Fumi Yoshinaga
Nozomi Entertainment/Rightstuf ~ 12 episodes
Quick Synopsis:
“In food and in life, one must taste what is bitter to appreciate what is sweet. Troubled that memories of the past continue to invade his dreams of the present, Keiichiro Tachibana stuns all who know him by abruptly quitting his ordinary office job to open a bakery. He envisions a predominantly feminine clientele and a wait staff of cute girls. Instead, his employees include a playboy pâtissier who’s been fired from every job he’s ever had, an ex-boxer with an insatiable sweet tooth, and an absent-minded childhood friend and family servant. Can this unlikely quartet overcome personal tragedies, learn to work together, and discover a recipe for culinary success?”



This episode is really split between Chisato/Shunsuke and Riju/Kakeru as couples (Kakeru is Riju’s new boyfriend).  I’ll just tell you now that there isn’t a whole lot of “action” going on in this one; at least nothing as good as the first one.  Just some dream type sequences that allude to the act.  It is a funny episode, though, and had some good laugh out loud moments in it.  We are introduced to Chisato’s father and two brothers and since Chisato’s father would be Riju’s grandfather, it is quite hysterical at how young he looks.  I won’t go into any further details as to the plot.  As far as the animation, it’s pretty good and has a lot of funny touches added to it (you’ll understand when you watch it, too hard to explain).  The characters are all hot (one of the brothers is to die for) and the translation is nicely done.  If you like fun boys’ love titles (and I do), this is one of them and worth the watch.  If you just want nasty fun, this one will disappoint.


Characters = A (super hot and very funny)

Animation = A-

Translation = A (done by AarinFantasy)

Plot = B+ (nothing in depth but cute and funny make up for it)

Sexual Content = C (sorry, just nothing to get excited over)


Overall Grade = B+
