Norimichi is in his first year in high school, and his daily life is full of being bullied. However, there is one thing in his life that he enjoys--spending his evenings making elaborate lunch boxes. The only one in his family who needs a lunch box is his father, though. One day, his father finally refuses his decorative lunch; he says that it's embarrassing to have such a cute lunch made by his son, and he thinks Norimichi needs to learn to stop doing 'girly' stuff like that.
Norimichi is devastated that his one happiness has been taken away, but the events of the day lead to him giving his rejected lunchbox to an unsociable girl at school, Umemiya. She is delighted by his adorable lunch box, and he is thrilled to be able to make her smile. Now he has an exciting new target for his creative lunchboxes, and maybe this first step can lead to something more!Thanks go to tethysdust for the summary.
Note to all scanlators:
If you recently started scanlating a new manga series (with about 5 or less chapters released) and would like your manga to be shouted out in the next New Manga Shout Out, then please PM me. Please include:
- The name of the manga series
- A summary of the series
- Publishing Status (+ Number of Volumes/Chapters)
This is what tethysdust said this week:
Nikoben was really cute, and it also describes his techniques for making the lunchboxes in pretty high detail. I think it would be a fun manga for someone getting into making deco bento boxes. The Legend of Galactic Heroes is surely going to have a lot of readers, since I think the series has a huge following.
My opinion: Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu
- If you're a fan of the Legend of Galactic Heroes, then you should definitely read this newer version.Nikoben!
- However, if you like looking at cute bento boxes or slice of life, then this will feed your addiction~Translated items that need some love/scanlation:myao
