Our Dining Table (Bokura no Shokutaku), is a manga that has nestled itself warmly into my heart.

This one-volume, eight-chapter manga published from November 2015 to January 2017, weaves a story rich in emotions, blending the themes of boys’ love and slice of life, with a unique focus on childcare​​.

Love, Food, and Healing

Our Dining Table tells the story of Yutaka Hozumi, a man who finds it challenging to eat in the company of others.

His life takes a turn when he meets Minoru and Tane, two brothers with a significant age gap.

Yutaka’s special rice balls and subsequent cooking lessons become a medium through which these characters develop a deep and nurturing bond.

This manga is not just about romance; it’s about healing emotional wounds and the power of sharing meals​​.

International Appreciation

The manga’s reach extended beyond Japan, with Seven Seas Entertainment publishing it in English in December 2019, and it also being licensed in Polish by Dango.

This international attention speaks volumes about the universal themes and appeal of the story​​.

A Symphony of Praise and Critique

The portrayal of Yutaka’s struggles and his eventual feeling of belonging in Minoru’s family brought emotional depth to the story, resonating with readers who appreciate a more wholesome and realistic approach to BL​​.

Personally sometimes I felt the manga’s short length led to underdeveloped characters and a lack of time for the main characters to develop chemistry.

While the art and portrayal of Tane were amazing, the brevity of the story left me sometimes yearning for more​​.

A Delightful Culinary Journey in BL

Our Dining Table struck a chord with its unique blend of culinary themes and delicate character interactions.

The way Mita Ori crafts a story around food and relationships is nothing short of delightful.

The manga’s ability to convey deep emotions through simple yet poignant scenes is a testament to the power of storytelling in the BL genre.

A Manga That Satisfies the Heart

Our Dining Table is a must-read for anyone who appreciates a heartwarming, slice-of-life story with a gentle touch of romance.

Its focus on the healing power of shared meals and the growth of its characters makes it a standout in the yaoi genre.

Whether you are a long-time fan or new to BL, this manga is a feast for the heart and soul, offering a sweet and fulfilling experience.
