what keristars wrote is true...the stories seem to be made a bit hastily made with not much attention to the characters and the individual stories...the stories in general are mediocre and sometimes are bit better and other times worse than mediocre..the art is a bit bad i might say and quite unskilled

but nevertheless i will continue to read because i'm very interested in the idea....it's a story about manga appreciation and what i love about it is that every chapter has another rare or classic manga that it revolves around and it broadens your knowledge of manga....so i guess if you love manga and are quite interested in finding even more about them you should try it....it gives a lot of information about rare manga in every chapter that don't even have entries on mangaupdates and of course you can't find as scanlations

While I like the art and the general idea of the manga, I feel like there isn't enough time spent on the individual stories. Each chapter is a stand-alone story about something related to the used book store, which doesn't really give me enough time to feel attached to the characters or have any concern about what we'll see in the next chapter. I stopped reading halfway through the fourth one, because I was tired of the similar plot and the lack of affection for the characters.

art's fine but boy is it repetitive.
1. person 1 becomes depressed
2. person 2 tells them to read manga
3. person 1 says: "but manga are for kids!!1!"
4. person 2 says: "just try it!"
5. person 1 reads it and is now no longer depressed.
