OK I hardly ever get to do this anymore but I wanted to get my all and all out about this manga. If you wanna discuss, PLEASE DO! I love this manga first off and I'd reread it probably even if it wasn't too old. Esp. the first few volumes because there are lots of sidenotes about the art and what the writer likes to eat and cook. I didn't pay too much attention to the specials either. But I'm so glad I read vol. 10's special. It was so good and I'm glad for
No judging.
This was awesome.
In a totally weird, manga, girly way.
And I loved every page XD

Now, pardon me while I got find the second omnibus.
Really adorable, classic shojo series--and the best part? Creative, usable recipes at the end of each manga! (I definitely plan on make a few of these!)
So cute and sweet! This volume leaves you feeling happy and like you might actually attempt Najika's recipes! I love this entire series.
Absolutely adorable! I love how it's centered around food. And how Najika is a nice, good main character. Daichi ftw! ^.^
This series is cute and makes me hungry. Read this if you are into cute characters and food. The art is fantastic.

LOVE, can't wait until Volume 2 arrives!!!!
Very cute and bubbly story.
This book is so cute! Natsumi Ando, your art is wonderful! :D (I love the spine of this book for some reason... Thought I'd just let you know that.) The recipes in the back look gorgeous so I'm going to try and make them all during the summer hols! Can't wait for the next volume but I think I'm going to try and find the omnibus editions rather than the individual volumes.

Oh and this is my 80th manga volume (excluding graphic novels) YAY! AWKWARD MILESTONE! XD
Such an optimistic book! I wish I can read books like these 24/7. I appreciate the authors' work. The dialogues are cool and the drawings, wow. Manga artists never receive enough credit. I'm sure it took a lot of hard work and time to make the manga look like this but it just took me a couple hours of my time to read it. Nevertheless, this is a gem. A gemstone to be kept forever inside my heart and brain.
Cute story........nice recipes too!
Completely cute, heartwarming, exciting storyline, loveable characters, amazing art! Despite the lighthearted feel, this dealt with tougher issues too. Also, there are adorable delicious recipe for the things made in the story by Najika (the Kitchen Princess)! Best manga ever, I have to read the next volume!
I love the story. You feel the emotions of the characters and see the growth in them as individuals. It's just the right amount of comedy drama and slice of life. The art work is well done and the addition of recipes that actually make delicious treats gets you hooked. Enjoy fellow manga readers! ^_^
Nice art with some interesting stories, some surprisingly deep topics (like bullying and eating disorders) for such lighthearted art. I want to find out what happens next and if she ever finds her prince. :)

This series is alot of fun. In some ways, it really reminds me of the *Yumeiro Patissiere* anime, which makes me wish KP had its' own anime as well.
