Yakitate!! Japan is a comic (known as manga) from Japan about "an enthusiastic, slightly gullible young baker" named Kazuma Azuma who dreams of creating great bread for his country. An Amazon review also adds, "Aiding Kazuma in his baking quest are his legendary 'Hands of the Sun,' exceptionally warm hands that speed the fermentation of yeast." Awesome. Volume 2 is coming in November. [via the November Saveur]
