Clumsy Arashiyama is a girl with a love for mysteries and a knack for getting into trouble. She works for an old lady’s lackluster maid café in a small shopping district. The cafe is largely unsuccessful in attracting customers aside from Sanada, a regular and one of Arashiyama's classmates (who has a secret crush on her). One day Arashiyama’s clever friend Tatsuno is invited to the café, and, upon seeing the miserable state of things (and Sanada, whom she has a secret crush on), decides to work there. Don’t miss the crazy antics of Arashiyama and friends, mismatched love stories, and all the hilarity that is created as a result, in Sore Machi.

Okay, I know that there are people who would LOVE this who might initially dismiss it because of the "maid" costumes that appear right from the beginning. Let it be known that the maid-costumes are only present as a joke; a sea-side cafe trying to be something it's not.

I just finished reading this (I wish it were so much longer!). I absolutely loved Hotori's goofball, scatterbrained but imaginative personality. I loved the secondary characters as well, the old woman running the shop is really one of the best characters, the aggravation Hotori causes her math teacher is particularly hilarious, and the stories touching on the afterlife and the family life/connections among the townsfolk were actually deeply moving. The sense of community is touching. The characters are charming and the comedy is great. I think this work is very underrated! Go read it now!

But there's some sort of sickening charm about it that makes me laugh.

It's not quite dropped by the scan team, its more like their whole operation has been down for a long time. They still have the downloads up, god bless em for that.

The story itself is quite nice. slice of life, but it doesn't have that feel. Its quite funny, and you feel good. There's no negativity thus far. I'm also expecting them to not just pair couples together. I prefer it when it could go either way(or maybe with none of them), if it does something standard in this regard, that'd be okay too.

Most of the cast is likeable. And I'd love to read more.

this manga could be enjoyed by all walk of life. all the characters are interesting, but show all the goodness of the world without it being sickly sweet. unlike others of the same ilk of 'cute girls doing cute things' these particular cute girls are not used as 'emotional' or 'sexual' crutch. sometimes the stories delved into science fiction and sometimes on the occult, but the slice-of-life with mundane but intriguing mysteries make the plot fresh and enjoyable. there is no ending as the author cop out by not writing one, but thats ok- the town is already living in our heart.

Enjoyable yes, got time to kill read it but didn't really wow me as much as i thought it would. In its defense I think I read a version with messed up chapters at least i hope I did anyway, it did have some very decent moments but personally it felt like a long train that goes nowhere. Don't get me wrong its a nice little story about the everyday interactions between the cast and their community but if the characters weren't as interesting as they were i might have dropped it.

Its funny. It has that sort of humor I appreciate. embarrassed I wouldn't call this weird, more like the main char has a weird type of logic, but that is what makes this fun.

The manga is pretty weird, I mean it have no sense of "plot" or any story behind it. (probably because not many chapters have been released sowwy D:)
