Just out of curiosity, what was the score for Cooking Master Boy? Or did you not even bother keeping a score for that one and went straight to scanlating it...?

Nah, I didn't employ this system back then, but it would have scored pretty high anyway.

Haha, well, I'm glad you picked it up, since i get to work on it ^^

I have my cooking manga phases, too. So little of them are shounen/seinen, though. There are a billion shoujo...

Too be honest, I considered heaps of cooking/food manga, and most of them were shounen actually. The plan was to eventually pick up heaps of cooking manga with Scantanga but yeah, they went defunct before that though...I wanted to start with cooking master boy and yup, it stuck.

I had these on my wishlist (they're still in my "series I hope to scanlate" list in MU haha)
1. Cooking Master Boy
2. Tenshi no Frypan (same author as CMB)
3. ★★★ no Specialite
4. Meccha Kyan (I wanted to do this one a lot)
5. Nijiiro Ramen (and this one)
6. Ou-sama no Mimi wa Okonomimi
7. Shouta no Sushi (and this one)
8. Houchounin Ajihei
9. Sho Sho Rika (this one's first chapter got scanlated though)

Couldn't solve the raw problem sometimes, but I had a few connections back then. ^^"

I agree there are a billion shoujo. Shoujo sadly dominates most of the world~  Sigh 

Glad to know someone else with cooking-manga urges. ^^"

tenshi no frypan, cooking master boy, yakitate! japan, shoku king, addicted to curry, bambino, shokugeki no souma (ecchi... but i skip the ecchi pages and focus on the cooking ^^), kui tan, gohan shiyo are on my list... i even relented and got some shoujos on there (kitchen princess, mixed vegetables... are on my list)...


I know there are a bunch of cooking mangas, but so few of them are actually scanlated. Like I really want to read Shouta no Sushi, but i can't get any of it... They're not very popular with scanlators i guess? idk...
