Yamato Shuuhei, an aspiring high school baseball star who is always hungry and lonely. Coincidentally lived alone in the apartment next to Yakumo-san.

Due to an accident, finally Yakumo-san and Yamato-kun have a new habit. Eat together at Yakumo-san’s apartment every night. The theme is also ‘suspicious’. The interaction of 28-year-old aunts and a teenager who is still innocent. But do not rush to expect to find a sex scene. Nothing at all, really.
This manga is quite innocent. Following the interaction and development of the Yakumo-Yamato relationship will indeed make us think, “Will they, won’t they?” But the whole story runs naturally and tends to be slow. Don’t be surprised if we only found significant developments after volume 10. Meanwhile, the scandal that circulated only reached volume 3. Hehehe..
In addition to the interesting story and characters, of course the culinary elements are also the main attraction of this manga. I always drool looking at the food Yakumo-san prepared for Yamato. Whether it’s hanbagu, pumpkin pie, gyoza, cream stew, hanami lunch, or just fried rice.
One thing that makes me wonder is how much Yakumo-san spends in a month. As a widow who does not work, she must have a lot of savings. The apartment is indeed quite small, but if it is calculated from the cost of cooking every day, how much does it cost. Moreover, the amount of food he prepared for Yamato was never small. One rice cooker is sure to run out. Side dishes at least three kinds. Yakumo-san didn’t even think about buying a new rice cooker for the sake of his ravenous neighbor.
