  • A silly quirky show that is nice to watch at the end of a long day.
    I have to admit it was a bit weird at first seeing all of the characters with various head gears on, I didn't know how to feel. But the more I watched I really enjoyed how the different props help with character expression. The way the series pokes fun at a lot of relate-able ordinary things and how poor Honda-san deals with it all, never fails to put a smile on my face. This series may not be for ...

  • I can see this being my new chill pill
    Definitely original AND entertaining. This show will likely be one of the reasons I keep my CR account. With great, believable voice work and unique quirky problems, this looks like something to help pass 10 minutes or 10 months. Really relaxed, silly stuff. I'm glad this fell on my radar.

  • More Than Bare-Bones Humour
    This anime actually came a little out of left-wing on my radar: I was made aware of it by a friend sharing a clip of it on Facebook. It was a simple, goofy and surreal video; impossible that it could be anything more than a one off gag, right? Well, when I'm wrong: I'm wrong.

    The unique art style, more reminiscent of manga and anime during that transition period between classic and modern ...

  • Short, Sweet and Funny
    This anime is something that I didn't expect to love as much as I do. I honestly thought it was going to be some sort of run-of-the-mill slice of life anime with just a bookstore skin and I was 25% wrong. It is a slice of life anime but in different way, Honda-san is a pure (from what I know of him as of episode 3), will-meaning book store clerk. each episode is essentially little tales of his ...

    Simply a wonderful show to watch
    I like to see the workings of a bookstore. The behind the scenes and all that jazz enhances my understanding. And makes me appreciate the hard work that goes into selling books and the employees of the store. Its also a informal and comedic kind of show. Its not for everyone but it makes me laugh.

  • a light comedy for the season
    If you want something light and fun but also entertaining, this anime hits the spot. Surely, the comedy in this anime will put a smile on your face. I have watched the the last two episode and it was pretty insightful how a bookstore really runs during the day. You really don't think about that when you go to the bookstore, this gives you a glimpse of what's truly happening behind the scenes.

    Not bad but not for me.
    Finished episode 1 with a few mixed feelings. It isn't horrible and I wanted to really like the concept but....it was a fail for me. Despite a few short funny moments, I spent most of the time staring at it going, "Huh?" "What?" "This is kind of annoying."

    Not going to continue on. Although I'm not going to be recommending this to anyone, I would still say if you're on this page - give Ep. ...

    This is a wonderful show
    This is the third anime I've ever watched and it's excellent. It's basically just a comedy about working retail. I will probably pay when my free trial is over because of this show. The remainder of this review is to meet the minimum character requir

    Amazing start, hope it keeps it's momentum
    A very funny shortform comedy format about a very handsome Bookseller and his interactions with his customers and coworkers. It's simple but sweet and hilarious. My 5-star rating is only based off the first episode, but if it can continue to keep up this level of quality for 12 or 13 episodes, it definitely deserves it.
