    Insightful Slice of Life
    This is definitely for fans of Denki Gai.

    This is a great slice of life anime, with light-hearted gags and realistic content (yes, despite the skull-faced protagonist). If you've been to Japan and wondered how those high-powered bookshops work, then this is for you. There's also a little bit about the Japanese perspective on foreign tourists and Western comics, which was interesting.

  • Very interesting anime.
    I really enjoyed this anime as it showed me a lot i didn't know about what happens in a bookstore, not only that the anime itself was a gag anime with the knowledge included so to me this was perfect to watch with my brother who also really loves shopping for books and having a laugh so we both enjoyed this and gave it an above average score of 6/10.

  • Simple theme is best theme, trust me
    I only watched 3 episodes, but the show is great. The theme is not complicated, which i love. this means that i don't need to remember much and have a high attention level to watch it (i mean like in other anime I need to be awake to a certain level to understand dialogue and such) but with honda san i can just open up an edpisode and just watch. it's fun.
