Denki-gai no Honya-san is one of the anime shows that was released this Fall 2014 and it just ended yesterday. The anime is known for it’s lighthearted and hilarious scenes concerning the industrial doujin-bookstore workplace. It is a Seinen show (targeted for older male audiences) that is a mix of comedy, slice-of-life, a dash of romance, some mature languages and amazing display of parody from other anime shows, manga and games. (To read Haruhichan’s “Big Sister” Rii’s review of Denki-gai no Honya-san, view it here).
Synopsis of Denki-gai no Honya-san from Haruhichan:
Umio is a shy kid who just started his part time job at a manga store smack dab in the middle of the city. But his lifestyle isn’t as glamorous as the neon lights that illuminate the city. Umio’s closest friends are his co-workers who are all unique characters, to say the least, and although they’re nice people, they have their quirks. They are a tight knit group of friends, have nicknames for each other and spend their weekends inside, sheltered from the extravagant scene happening on the outside.
