Honda’s Skull-face Bookseller Honda-san (Gaikotsu Shotenin Honda-san) is a Japanese slice-of-life comedic manga, based on the author’s experiences selling books. It was serialized online on the pixiv comic website between August 2015 and March 2019. Volume 1 collects the first seven issues.

Imagine a world where people were free, even encouraged, to venture into stores seeking goods and services! Honda works in one such store, a busy manga outlet providing a wide variety of manga to an equally diverse clientele. Honda is certain that patrons expect a certain sort of bookseller and that they do not fit that image at all.

They do their best.
