It seems that with each episode, the pâtissier offers a different dessert. This week’s looks like creme puffs to me – and made out of Choux dough too (so this one is for you Choux, if you can read this.)
The spotlight this week is on Kanda Eiji, who becomes a pâtissier in training under Yusuke. Because of his ruined career as a boxer, Eiji turns to a different passion – cakes.
How It All Begins…
Yusuke, being the only pâtissier, is deathly afraid of women…
..thus dashing all hopes of a female co-worker for Tachibana…
..and Eiji steps in.
Voiced by Mamoru Miyano (who I believe does a pretty damn good job on the Seiyuu voices he does), Eiji can be seen as the other half of Tachibana. They both curse like sailors (why is it never something like “dentists”), and have disrespectful attitudes. There is yet potential in Eiji for Tachibana’s love interest.
Another crucial fact about Eiji, but how does Yusuke know? ( ^ Hoshi turns perverted)
Anyways, Eiji is confronted this episode about his boxing career. When a fan sees him working with cakes, Eiji is confronted with the issue of his manliness. Although we come to understand later that this fan is dealing with his own anger at his boxing retirement and seeing a champion boxer turn towards becoming a pastry chef, we first learn that Eiji loves being a boxer. However, because he has come to terms with his injuries, Eiji says he can let go of boxing and turn towards creating cakes.
I have no problems with men cooking. In fact, one of my best friends can make the best crepes and desserts EVAR, and he’s male. And because I’m one of those girls who doesn’t care about calories, I gladly accept anything he makes for me. The only I care about in food is taste factor.
That being said, I can’t really blog much more on this episode. :] I guess I can only say enjoy the pictures of pretty cakes and pastries!
