Staff Reviews

Honda-san is a skeleton and bookseller who works in the manga section with her coworkers who wear various masks such as a jack o' lantern and a plague mask. The author wrote this book while working in a bookstore and hilariously illustrates daily life as a bookseller, from over-the-top customer service training to hectic new release days. If you are new to manga you will learn a lot (there is a glossary of terms in the back of the book) and if you are not you will see some old favorite titles as Honda-san handles a large array of customer requests.  It is a fun tribute to books, bookstores and booklovers.
