About Skull-face Bookseller Honda-san Manga Volume 1

Skull-face Bookseller Honda-san Manga Volume 1 features story and art by * Honda.

Honda might be a skeleton, but that's nowhere near as crazy as working in a Japanese bookstore! Whether it's running the store, dealing with out-of-print books, or handling eccentric customers, the bookstore life is filled with laughter and tears.

A Hilarious Manga


For those who have not been exposed to the anime shorts yet, Skull Faced Bookseller Honda-san (also known as 'Gaikotsu Shotenin Honda-san') had originally been a Pixiv comic that became popular enough to become turned into a manga and later- an anime. The story is simple, a slice of life featuring one bookseller and their life as a bookseller in Japan. I highly recommend this manga to anyone curious enough, as not only is the art well done, the humor -well- hilarious, the manga is an interesting insight as to how bookstores in Japan work for the most part. In short- if you choose to purchase this manga- it has a great anime, and what I believe to be an even greater manga to read.

Not so bad but not so great

by -

To start out I do think this is a fine book that I could be relatable for many to read but for me it’s falling a little short. There were moments where I love it and it was so funny but there were also moments where I just lost interest. My favorite thing I can commend this book for is the diversity. I’ve read a lot of books over the years and there is definitely not enough of that. I also love the idea of this book and how it’s based on the authors experiences while working in a bookstore. So I’m not giving up on this one I feel it has potential for me to love it so onward I go to the second book. Wish me luck!
