Manga Review: Kitchen Princess Omnibus 3 Paperback

I've finished "Kitchen Princess Omnibus Vol. 3" by Natsumi Ando.


Najika's replacement as spokesperson for the cooking school arrives at Seika Academy, and she is not too fond of him. Seiya is stuck up and rude, which would be easier to handle if he didn't look just like her past love, Sora! As their rivalry escalates, a competition is held between them and Najika must win to save her old orphanage, the Lavender House. All the while, Najika is working to unveil the mysterious truth about her Flan Princess and the Kitazawa brothers. But when old memories resurface, will Najika be ready for them?

This omnibus contains volumes 5, 6 and 7 of Kitchen Princess, and special extras after the story!

My Review:

Volume 5 deals with Najika suffering from tendinitis and not being able to finish the cooking competition.  She's very lucky she is one of the three to advance to the next level.  She also overhears the Director talking to Sora about the plan he has organized for her.  She feels betrayed and Sora convinces her to forgive him by making something for her.  A character is killed off in a major accident.

Volume 6 deals with Najika losing her sense of taste and suffering from the lost of someone very important to her.  Her replacement Seiya Mizuno arrives and he's rude and arrogant especially towards Najika.  In order to save Lavender House she agrees to a competition against Seiya which she wins.

This omnibus is a little more serious with the death of a character and how people are dealing with it.
