4-koma, nice and simple slice of life revolving around a cute and clumsy college girl who works part time at a Buddha Cafe (the workers are monks of different sects).
each sect (of Buddhism) has a different ideas and the manga does a good job explaining it along with its practises.
Sprinkles of heartwarming parts, but the comedy is more of a weak "heh" than an "laugh out loud" to me.
While, of course, refreshing, you can easily binge read this series.
As to many slice of life manga, there isn't really a true plot. Every chapter is a nice story in their life
Ruri- cute, college
girl who is hecka clumsy, has had 100+ previous jobs. A positive female MC who's only friends are the workers at the cafe.
Kou- Manager of the cage who is a so-called "Buddha nerd". He is likely the most recognizable type of Buddhist that a general person would be familiar with. Basic stoic/tall male character that has a hard time smiling. Part of the RINZAI sect, which one the sects in zen buddhism
Kai- hes the treasurer? accountant? likes to scam people and likes money. in the SHINGON sect, a big school of buddhism in Japan that started in the 8th century (?).
Ren- Hes a flamboyant and easy going (que sera sera) chef, really all you need to know. In the JODO SHIN (Pure land buddhism sect)
The manga isn't like hardcore about Buddhism, it just throws in some teachings to give you a basic sense.
