Sweetness and Lightning

A single dad and a little girl learn the magic of cooking to bring families together in this manga that inspired a hit anime.

Having lost his wife, math teacher Kouhei Inuzuka is doing his best to raise his young daughter Tsumugi as a single father. He's pretty bad at cooking and doesn't have a huge appetite to begin with, but chance brings his little family and one of his students, Kotori Iida, together for homemade adventures. With those three cooks in the kitchen, it's no wonder this dinner table drama is so delicious.

“A beautifully drawn story about comfort food and family and grief, it’s a delightful read. Recommended.”  —Otaku USA Magazine
