First Impressions: Skull-face Bookseller Honda-san

This show has a skeleton man. And a bookstore. I like it already.

hey it’s that dude from gin****

I like this show. This show is good. It has cleansed me of the Show-That-Shall-Not-Be-Named. It has done this with it’s charming animation, delightful art style, and amusing characters. Thank you, Honda-san. Thank you.

Okay, seriously though. This is a good one. It follows Honda-san throughout his day at a bookstore. Honda-san just happens to be a walking skeleton. It is not explained. Other characters are Bag-Headed Guy, Bunny-Faced Dude, and Noh-Mask Lady. These are also not explained. It’s cool, though. Skull-Face is not about that. Such things are incidental. At its core, Skull-Face is a slice-of-life manga brought to life, and I dig it. It’s awkward and funny and worth all twelve minutes it takes to watch.

So go watch. Seriously. You won’t regret it.
