Aoi is a moé-type maid working on a wealthy Osaka estate. In reality, though, she is an undercover detective sent by the police on a special mission to investigate a suspect.
Kinue is a saleswoman in the futon section of a department store. One day, she suddenly gets transferred to the women's clothing department, even though she herself is lacking in fashion sense. Her new boss Miki, soon introduces Kinue to the tough reality of the fashion world. Through this job, Kinue learns about the meaning of life, love, and work.
We also received a bunch of new releases: Miyazaki's latest, "Ponyo", Blade of the Immortal volumes 2 & 3, Dante's Inferno, Tower of Druaga Collection 2, Ghost Hound Collection 2 and a few other things.
News from upstairs: Mangaya, located right above us, have slashed their prices again this week. This is not good for my wallet because I've been buying stuff I wouldn't have bought otherwise, including gifts for my girlfriend. I'm the best boyfriend in the world.
THE SALE WILL CONTINUE!
We've decided to cut prices even further because when we saw how many DVDs were left and how much work it was gonna be to sell them over the internet, that it would be simpler to just sell them here. We have a LOT left and it really needs to go. Especially the live-action!
STARTING SATURDAY, ALL LIVE-ACTION MOVIES WILL BE $5 EACH. That's cheaper than renting. All anime box sets will have their prices dramatically reduced. Come take a look!
Also take note that everything will be on sale at Mangaya too - prices will be DRAMATICALLY reduced on all japanese and english mangas and artbooks!
Monday to friday: Noon till 7
Saturday: Noon till 5.
