Yokohama Kaidashi Kikō (ヨコハマ買い出し紀行) by Hitoshi Ashinano (芦奈野ひとし).
"The title can be translated Yokohama Shopping Log or Record of a Yokohama Shopping Trip.
The series depicts the daily life of a robot who runs a coffee shop some time after the Earth's ecology has collapsed. It is noted for its beautifully spare pen-and-ink drawing style, as well as its calm, meticulously paced stories and engaging characters. Yokohama Kaidashi Kikō won the 2007 Seiun Award for best science fiction comic."
Well, that's the wikipedia about this work for you. I just finished re-reading it again and noticed an not so subtle lack of Yokohama Kaidashi Kikō threads here on these forums. "None of that, I will have", I said and made this thread.
I hope I'm not alone in liking this series? I know I've seen some poster around here with a Alpha sig and avatar at least.
In case any of you is reading this and wondering why you should read it, not convinced by wikipedias "meticulously", "beautiful" and "ohs and ahs" allow me to add my own here.
It's a story about the small things in life. It's slow, really really slow. Like a chapter dedicated to the protagonist trying to find good water too make tea with. The story contains mysterious elements and raises alot of questions but never really answer any of them.
It gets to me and at times make me slightly melancholic.
Well, that's what it is to me anyway. I'm sure other people think of it in other ways. Which is kinda why I made this thread.
If anyone else read it, what do you think this shitty manga is about?
