Pochiyama-san works at a local pharmacy. She is a loner and seldom speaks; instead she writes what she wants to say on... well you'll see for yourself once you read this short and humorous one-shot.

Preliminary (1/4 eps)
Pochiyama at the Pharmacy is a slice of life one shot manga that is strangely intriguing, but leaves us seemingly empty handed.

What we get to experience is an episode and interaction in the life of Pochiyama and a normal highschool age boy Taki. The story is basically non existant, but what makes it interesting though is the weird habits of Pochiyama. I found her character to be the best part of this work.

In the end it feels like a chance meeting of what could've been an interesting relationship, but i suppose that is the problem with most one-shots.

It's a real short story so ...
