Mantarou Ohara's salary can’t keep up with the amount of money he spends on food. He doesn’t just eat his meals, he savors every mouthful and travels Japan in search of new flavors to excite his taste buds. But when a serious lack of funds causes him to choose between living off noodles or entering an eating competition, it seems that the life of this gourmet is about to change...

Will the guidance of a mysterious stranger turn Mantarou from a food lover into a professional competitive eater? Or will his passion for the perfect recipe be his downfall...?

Manga for Foodies By Deb Aoki
Eat For Your Life!

Chow Down Champs

King of Extreme Cooking

By Shigeru Tsuchiyama

Digital Manga Publishing

Gluttony and gastronomy mix in this trio of manga by Shigeru Tsuchiyama. Eat for Your Life! follows the adventures of an office worker whose taste for good food is often greater than his paycheck. He soon discovers the world of competitive eating, where overeating athletes go head-to-head to eat fast and eat a lot to gain fame and fortune.

Chow Down Champs is about competitive eating at the high school level, where teens with big appetites compete for glory against high schools throughout Japan. King of Extreme Cooking features a traveling chef who swoops into struggling restaurants to give them a taste of new ideas and recipes for success.

While all three are digital-only releases, they're fast, fun reads that leave you hungry for more (and for ramen and pork cutlet too!)
Ryu Sheng
The story is where it really shines though, competitive eating was never a sport (? is it really a sport??) I’ve had an interest in. Hell I’ll be honest and admit the only time I’ve ever heard about it is in TV series where it’s used in murder mysteries, such as Bones or Diagnosis M.So for this was a refreshing voyage, a new plot for me to get into without feeling like i know what’s going on all the time, I found this invigorating and exciting. I find I’m actually really looking forward to the subsequent volumes, and i do hope this gets a print release as I’d love to have a print copy on my shelf.
Narrative Investigation
This was a surprisingly fast read, I was rather surprised when I reached the end of the first volume since I felt like no time had passed at all* and that's a good sign. The pacing was rather quick, both for the actual contests, thank goodness considering how each eating contest Ohara finds himself in is under an hour long, and for the story in general, it wastes no time introducing Ohara to the world of competitive eating and finding him a mentor for it. ...It's not silly or goofy but it is rather light-hearted and just has fun with the whole idea, which paired with the quick pace makes it much more of a fun read than I expected.

  Fun, fast read! Like sports manga for foodies
by debaoki  03/20/2015
A really fun read! Action-packed, well-paced, and the art fits the story well. What's fun about it is that it does feature real info about the world of competitive eating and the strategies that some people use to win eating contests.

And, believe it or not, even for a black and white comic, it DOES make you hungry when you read it. Where's Volume 2?!!
