Let us read cake

September 17, 2010

Owing to the fact that I know next to nothing about this week’s requested property, I’ll take you on a little tour through the process of determining what books I randomly decide I want.

Sometimes, I’ll start with a demographic. For instance, today I decided I might be in the mood for some josei.

Then I remember that there were some titles that sounded interesting in Shueisha’s YOU.

Then I see the word “patisserie” in one of the titles, and all is settled, especially after watching the debut of Top Chef: Just Desserts.

So, yes, I would like for someone to publish Kira’s ten-volume Patisserie Mon, basically only because it’s josei and features cake. I don’t really need any more substantial argument than that, do I?

I will add that the preview pages (some for each volume can be accessed here) look really cute. Is it possibly an Antique Bakery knockoff? I guess it could be. Should there be more Antique Bakery knockoffs in the world? Yes, there absolutely should.

Kira has also completed a 26-volume series told from the perspective of a dog and is currently working on a series that looks to be about competitive swimming.

And that is how this license request was born.
