Kevin attempts to jump-start his love life by being himself.
Always the first mistake, or at least it is for me.

Hahaha, I love how Kevin referred to PSME by its Japanese title. Dork. How will she find it, Kevin? HOW?

The sad part is it'd be a fitting recommendation, if only he were more suave about it. Poor guy.

Sorry Kevin, but I was rooting for you! Laughing

At least he's got his gumption up...now he just needs to learn everything in moderation!

(I love that he wakes up a sleeping cow...) Anime hyper

Lol, that's how I act sometimes - but with video games. You can do it Kevin, I'm rooting for you. Very Happy

I tend to retreat whenever a woman spots me near the manga aisle. Or really, when anyone does. Unless I'm transfixed by the sheer volume of manga available.

Loved the manga cow waking up. I laughed heartily.

Never hit on a fellow customer. They usually hit back.

The guy in the last panel made the whole strip. Anime hyperD

Well, at least I can say with some confidence that I'm better at introducing anime to the uninitiated than Kevin is. Then again, when it comes to actually TALKING with girls - at least without coming off as an insensitive jerk - I'm still pretty... fail.

It took me several tries to read Kevin's big long-winded speech. Each word was another nail in the coffin, and the whole thing was excruciating. Now that poor girl thinks Anime and Manga fans are even worse. It takes one person to screw in a light bulb, but also one person to wreck an entire storytelling medium for someone.
