Yay, Yakitate!! Japan will become an anime in 8 days~~! (October 12th)
hm..it is my favorite manga, and hopefully it will be my favorite anime too!
It is about a young baker's ambition to create the bread of japan and such, and although it is about bread (not that that is a bad thing), it is very funny and you should all read/watch it!
