THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.

Haha, I love how they just put a "part time worker" tag over irrelevant characters in the show.

Not going to lie though, I think that a fun place to work despite how strange some characters are.

Hmm apart from customers seems the store also needs to struggle against the publishers too. The insight into their relationship was quite interesting. The insight into how recommendations work was amusing. Another great episode that expanded upon how bookshops work and the relationship they have with their suppliers.

Now I know why Radiant is popular enough to be adapt to anime despite such a generic shonen manga that doesn't take the advantage of French's author origin at all.

Not as good as the other episodes, but still nice.
One Piece episode 914 & 915 were a mistake.

I don't like that they censor names and titles. Can't they just use a new name that sounds similar? Like Bakuman's anime had 'Shounen Jack' instead of 'Shounen Jump'!

I know I did :D That was the best part for me LOL

I am really enjoying this show. I love the humor and that it is loosely based on a real bookstore employees experiences.

The publishers part was interesting to see. And the conclusion with that guy buying Berserk in the end was unexpected but funny nevertheless. It was a good episode.

“Selling a Manga to a customer without being overwhelmed by other titles”, very relatable, especially when recommendig an Anime to new fans.

So many manga references arrghh
I just recognize Natsume Yuujincho and Chihayafuru
Great shoujo manga! Recommended! xD
B-But Chihayafuru in French? Not sure if the abundance of Japanese things could be explained very well

Male 40s, Shoujo, Short = Berserk
Haha Perfect!
He must have a good "guts" to pick that

Plague Mask is best girl.

I found all the references on point and the work place environment so fitting. I'm shocked more people aren't loving this. I'm usually so devoid of comedy effecting me so strongly.

Honestly, I just wanna keep watching this anime for all the references so I have new series I can check out, but it's semi-boring to me... ^^"

Guess I'll drop it.
It's hard for me to sit through this lol... 11 minutes seem too long x____x that's how you know an anime isn't for you, hah

That last part reminds me of the time when I ended up buying the first edition of Berserk Deluxe even though there was a way bigger variety of books I'd like to buy and start reading lul

I don't know if it's just me, but I think that "Frédéric Toutlemonde" guy that appears in the first half might be a reference to Frédéric Boilet, a renowned author who lives in Japan and kind of started the "nouvelle manga" movement

Wow, I legit thought that Toutlemonde (lit. "all the world" or "the whole world") was a made up name lol
Thanks for clearing it up!
