Of love and delicious food

Just added to my recommended manga listings.

What Did You Eat Yesterday? by Yoshinaga Fumi

Shiro is a lawyer, his good looks make him seem younger than he is. He is serious, very much a professional, and his co-workers assume he is single even at his age. Kenji is a hair stylist, fashionable, and not very serious. Kenji is openly gay where Shiro is very much in the closet. Shiro's serious side comes out in his overseeing the household finances. His love for Kenji is partly expressed through cooking delicious meals on a tight budget. Together they make a good match. The series is very character driven, not only showing us Kenji and Shiro but also glimpses into the lives of their friends. The cooking is one part readers enjoy, you can actually follow the process Shiro goes through as he talks to himself.

What Did You Eat Yesterday? is available from The Right Stuf

City boy out of his element?

I'm currently reading the manga for Silver Spoon which was adapted into anime in 2013-14. This is one of my favorite titles from that time period and strongly urge people to check out the anime. So I have added it to my recommended anime web page. Being an aniplex title it is pricy, but oh so good. You can also watch it on Crunchyroll.
