Yumeiro Patissiere (夢色パティシエール?, lit. Dream-Colored Pastry Chef) is an ongoing Japanese shōjo manga series written and illustrated by Natsumi Matsumoto. It began serialization in the October 2008 issue of Ribon.[1] The individual chapters have been collected into five tankōbon volumes by Shueisha as of February 2010.[2]

The series is being adapted into a TV anime by Studio Pierrot [3] and Studio Hibari. The series was licensed by Crunchyroll for online streaming with English subtitles.[4]



The story centers on a 14-year-old girl named Ichigo Amano who wants to be a pâtissière (female pastry chef), but is extremely clumsy. Encouraged by a pro, she enrolls in St. Marie Academy, a culinary school for sweets, and meets a "sweets spirit." She gets off to a rough start when one of the Princes of Sweets called Kashino yells at her, but then meets her sweets spirit, Vanilla and begins to learn the ups and downs of being a pâtissière.


Main Characters

Ichigo Amano (天野いちご Amano Ichigo?)
Voiced by: Aoi Yūki
The series' main character. Ichigo is a 14 year old girl who loves sweets. Ichigo was ignored by her mother for many years, for having no special talent, as compared to her younger sister, Natsume, who plays the piano very well. But during a Sweets Fiesta, she is spotted by Henri Lucas for her extraordinary sense of taste, and therefore transferred to St Marie Academy in order to train and become a pâtissière, like her grand-mother. Her dream is to make sweets that make the people eating them smile.

She may be a bit clumsy but she tries hard. She's also very handy, and a quick thinker when it comes to sticky situations. Her sense of creativity, especially in sweets-making is said to be either original or very weird, but she never get discouraged. By entering St Marie Academy, she makes a lot of new friends and gets to learn more of the Sweets Princes. But even with the three Sweets Princes around her, her love life is, for now, still at square one: she considers Andou as a caring big brother, Hanabusa as a player and Kashino as a sadistic devil. But she still blushes at him from times to another...

Makoto Kashino (樫野 真 Kashino Makoto?)
Voiced by: Nobuhiko Okamoto
One of the "Sweets Princes" of the school, who specializes in chocolate sweets. His dream is to become a patissier and make chocolate just like his uncle. One of the condition under which he can stay at St. Marie Academy is to stay at the top of his class. His parents are a prestigious family of doctors who do not approve of his studying to become a pâtissier (Ep. 18: The Bitter Circumstances of Kashino's Household).

Kashino is unsociable, straightforward, and has a prickly character. Except from his childhood friend Andou, his self-confidence makes him reject everyone at the beginning. He ignored totally both Hanabusa's friendship and the Sweet Spirits' when they met, and he has been mostly cold and prickly towards Ichigo, because of her clumsiness and happy-go-lucky personality (and in return Ichigo often calls him Kashino the Sadist), but past this first refusal, he still accepted them in the end. Kashino is a classic example of Tsundere character. As the episodes progress, he shows more and more of his concern for Ichigo, first by encouraging her during her chocolate test (Ep. 05: Angel? Demon? Spirits??), then saving her when she falls in the pond (Ep. 15: Rose Water of Memories), and getting jealous when Hanabusa kisses Ichigo on the cheek (Ep. 16: Sweet Rose Memory),and complemented her chocolate while dancing with her and kinda felt happy cause ichigo said she was thinking of him while making them and felt sad too cause she put something bitter on them cause she thinks Kashino is bitter (Ep. 19:Happy Valentines)

Satsuki Hanabusa (花房五月 Hanabusa Satsuki?)
Voiced by: Tsubasa Yonaga
One of the "Sweets Princes" of the school, Hanabusa specializes in candy sculptures and flower-based cakes. His dream is to work together with his mother, an artist in flower arrangement who also a teacher at St. Marie Academy, and design wonderful tables associating flowers and sweets. His father was an horticulturist who specialized in roses. He died in a car accident several years before the story takes place. The bottle of rose water that he keeps is a memento of his father (Ep. 15&16).

Ever since his father died, Hanabusa felt that he should be kind to his mother and women. As a result, he loves all beautiful things, and is nice to every girl, bordering on perpetual flirt. He also seems to be a narcissist. It is probably for that reason that Ichigo can't take him seriously when he kisses her cheek, even if it seems to everyone else that he really have feelings for her. It is stated in the anime that he was born in the month of October.

Sennosuke Andou (安堂千乃介 Andō Sennosuke?)
Voiced by: Shinya Hamazoe
One of the "Sweets Princes" of the school, who specializes in Japanese sweets. His dream is to open his own sweets shop next to his family's confectionery, selling sweets that blend Japanese and Western tastes together.

Andou is the eldest of 5 siblings and he often go and help at his family shop "Yume Tsuki" during holidays (Ep. 04: I Hate Cakes!). He is a childhood friend of Kashino and for that reason calls him "Ma-kun". Andou is always calm and reliable, and he always try to reason everyone and keep the Team in peace. Since the beginning, he has been very helpful and taught a lot of things to Ichigo. He is exactly like the 'Big Brother' character. And even if he was also shocked when Hanabusa kissed Ichigo on the cheek (Ep. 16), as he was teasing Kashino on the same occasion, we can conclude that he does not love her as a lover, and just want to watch over her.

The anime adaptation was accidentally announced in June 2009 by a listing from one of the card game series based on the manga.[3] The series began airing on October 4, 2009 on Yomiuri TV.[10] The series currently simulcasts on Crunchyroll with English subtitles.[4] The sweets in the series were all created by the Paris-based patissier Aoki Sadaharu.[11]

As of episode 17 in the anime, there have been two pieces of theme music, one opening and one closing. The opening is Yume ni Yell! Patissiere (夢にエール!パティシエール♪ Yell For the Dream! Patissiere?) and the ending is Ichigo no Mirakurūru (いちごのミラクルール Ichigo's Miracle–le?). The CD single for the two was released by the Columbia Music Entertainment on January 20, 2010 in a regular and limited edition. The limited edition comes with extra charms and costs ¥1,365, but is otherwise the same as the regular edition, which costs ¥1,050.[12][13]

Card Game

A trading card game based on the manga was released in Japan by Konami during the serialization of the series. There are two different series, Sweets Deco Cards and My Sweets Cards.[3][14]


A cookbook for the series entitled "Yumeiro Patissiere Special Recipe Book: Oyako de Tsukuru Hajimete no Sweets" (夢色パティシエール スペシャルレシピブック 親子で作るはじめてのスイーツ?) (ISBN 978-4-08-102082-9) was released by Shueisha Mook on December 1, 2009 for ¥1200.[15][16][17]


Carlos Santos of Anime News Network calls the anime "a baking-themed series so rife with clichés that it's hard to tell where the plagiarism stops and the actual show begins."[18] Other reviewers on the same site had slightly better opinions of the series though. Carl Kimlinger calls it "pure shojo fluff" and says that it is a "sugary little distraction that won't harm any sensibilities"[19] Theron Martin suggests either eating before or during viewing as the series is "undoubtedly one of the tastiest-looking series to come along in quite some time." Martin critiqued the art of the series however, saying "The dessert designs are unquestionably the visual highlight, as otherwise the artistry and technical merits are rather bland."[20] Summer Mullins also notes that the sweets are the best part of the animation, saying, "those detailed shots [of the sweets] highlight the fact that some of the animation is only so-so" She also calls the series "pure food porn."[11]

With 1350 votes, Crunchyroll's website listed Yumerio Patissiere with an overall ranking of 4.8 out of 5 stars.[21]
