This manga bookstore has a thousand stories to tell.
If a manga volume exists, you can find it at Kingyo Used Books. But Kingyo is more than just a typical used bookstore—it’s a place where human relationships are treated as the most valuable stories of all. Natsuki, the store’s interim manager, and Shiba, the manga maniac who loves her, help both their regular patrons and random customers in a series of linked tales built around actual manga series ranging from the popular to the esoteric.
In this volume:
A disaffected boy searches for something to put a spark in his tedious life...and finds a manga that puts the fear of the devil in him.
A guy and girl can't find anything they have in common—until they discover a mutual love of a certain gender-bending martial arts manga.
After a schlubby nerd loses his cool at the handsome manga freaks at Kingyo, a classic horror manga teaches him that beauty is only skin deep.
Natsuki's search for her missing mother takes her to a manga museum that has special meaning for her parents.
Someone is setting fire to used bookstores, and Kingyo may be next—unless two mismatched manga fans can stop the arsonist!
