    I took my time reading this volume because of finals. Shiro and Kenji are wonderful together and I love seeing how they live their life and love each other while enjoying meals together.

    This series is so great. How does the author/illustrator depict such complicated, nuanced emotion and situation in just a few panels?My one complaint for #4 in the series was: not enough time spent on story in each chapter. I wanted more melancholy and loss from the lawyer who remains so uncomfortable with being gay and only half 'out', more of the fun, unlikely friendship with the lawyer's food shopping buddy, more relationship development betwe...

    Shiro is really growing on me now that I'm starting to understand him a little better. And there are some super adorable moments in this volume.

    I'm really on the fence about this Manga (series). First and foremost this is of course a Manga about japanese cuisine and I really like this part of it but it's also about Shiro and Kenji and I can't help but think that the way Shiro is portrayed is not very flattering. He comes across as unloving und self-centred most of the time. I mean he has his moments here and there but they barely make up for it, imho.I'll continue reading this, but I sin...

    Kenji cooking is basically my favorite thing. It's so different from watching Shiro. I love it!

    Continuation of simple and sweet with much wonderful recipe filler. Realistic every day slice of gay food loving life in Japan.

    As always, I loved all the food! I read this at a time I wasn't allowed to eat (going in for dental surgery) which was kind of silly as it got my stomach rumbling. I really enjoyed these chapters which focused a bit on relationships, marriage, children and those who choose not to have all that, or can't have all that. I especially thought the last chapter was heartwarming as the two men realize how important it is not to take each other for grant...

    The food and relationship goodness continues in Volume 4. Shiro takes another turn at cooking, and we get to see Kenji's thoughts about this, which I find highly entertaining. Kenji continues to explore his thoughts about being openly (or not) gay, and what long-term relationships entail. The cooking segments seemed especially accessible in this volume, though that may just be me getting used to them. Good stuff!

    Really enjoy the peek into the lives of two gay men. Dealing with issues like parents and children. One thing that bothers me a bit is the use of slang. Sometimes characters who don't seem like they'd be the type to talk will break out into very casual language which doesn't seem to fit them. It makes you wonder if that's really the character voice or just the voice of the translator.

    As always, the recipes just sound so delicious! I am growing to love Kenji even more in this volume, but Shiro is still stilted and a bit self-centered. Whilst I understand the Japanese culture towards homosexuality, it made me uncomfortable and upset for Kenji when Shiro keeps his distance from him in public..

    These books are always so great, but we get a little more depth into their relationships with their parents.

    Every time Shiro goes bargain hunting at the grocery store an angel gets its wings. This series could not be more perfect for me if it tries.

    ちょこちょこっと真剣な話が入りつつ、日常をごはんで表すよしながぶしは最高です繰り返しますが、ひたすらおいしそ~~でもって本気で作れそうなレシピばっかりです!

    This was another very very quick read that was pretty much more of the same. Food, minor conversations. The books are a great filler, but they don't have a lot of substance to them.
