Clumsy Arashiyama is a girl with a love for mysteries and a knack for getting into trouble. She works for an old lady's lackluster maid café in a small shopping district. The cafe is largely unsuccessful in attracting customers aside from Sanada, a regular and one of Arashiyama's classmates (who has a secret crush on her). One day Arashiyama's clever friend Tatsuno is invited to the café, and, upon seeing the miserable state of things (and Sanada, whom she has a secret crush on), decides to work there. Don't miss the crazy antics of Arashiyama and friends, mismatched love stories, and all the hilarity that is created as a result, in Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru.

This manga deserves more reviews, and so I am writing one.

The synopsis gives a good description of the events at the beginning- the first 2, 3 chapters. I will be clear that this is not a romance manga and there will be no resolution to any love stories. I wish it was not so, but things stay exactly the same at the end as they were in the beginning- apart from Hotori moving to her 3rd year of high school and one of her seniors (Kon-senpai) graduating.

The characters are where the real charm of SoreMachi lies. You have the Arashiyama family, the 3 regulars to read more

There's something really special about Soremachi as a manga that really gets me. A manga from the talented Masakazu Ishiguro, it has gone pretty much unnoticed among the Western community but has gotten critically great reception and awards from Japan, winning the Excellence award for the Japanese Media Arts Festival in 2015 and amazingly, the best scifi manga in the Seiun Awards.

People say slice of life as a series can get boring over time but Soremachi has proved that wrong time and time again. In Soremachi, you follow the charismatic and bumbling but lovable fool of a character in Hotori Arashiyama - a high read more

It's no less than amazing. I've already written a review for the anime adaptation of this work, so I'll keep it short.

While I do admit that Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru's anime adaptation is better than the manga, it's still one of the funniest mangas I have read. The artstyle is just perfect. I really like all the facial expressions, movements, and paneling that this manga has, and it really elevates it. I really can't read ugly looking manga, and a lot of comedy/4 Komas tend to be lacking in detail (D-Frag) and just end up looking like a rough draft. This manga has such a read more

There is something great about reading a manga about a normal daily life and feeling a powerful immersion with that common, ordinary reality. It’s delightful to read something so simple and yet so captivating with its wacky adventures and charismatic characters. And that’s Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru, or SoreMachi for short, for me.

SoreMachi is a manga about a mischievous and aspiring mystery writer girl called Arashiyama Hotori and her adventures as a normal school student, who also works as a maid in a local restaurant. She lives in the downtown and her neighbors, as well their shops, have an important role in the story. Arashiyama’s read more
