It's ... it's a three-story Book Off!
For those not in the know, Book Off is a used book/game/media company and is one of favorite all-time stores. It's about the only store that I'll go out of my way to find -- everywhere -- which is what I ended up doing here. I think I found it on Google Maps while stumbling about. I didn't expect it to be three floors though! And one of said floors is dedicated to manga!
I stayed in the store (including the used clothing store below) for quite a while, looking at their books and old games. I ended up picking up two Game Boy Advanced games for my recently-acquired Nintendo DS: the second Ace Attorney (逆転裁判) game and a Momotaro RPG, which I got (for only 100 yen) largely out of nostalgia from playing Momotaro Dentetsu with Mikawa Ossan back in the day). I also got the first volumes of Sazae-san and Chibimaruko-chan. I had to exercise an extreme amount of nonstop self-control while walking through here.
|Seen at Book Off. It's entitled When WIll Golgo 13 End?and attempts to craft an ending for it. Interesting.|
(I bought one Golgo book too, now that I think about it.)
