The run down Ijima Electronics and Appliance store, located in the back streets of Akihabara (the Mecca of electronics in Japan) is on its last leg. The store had nearly gone out of business, until three sisters - the store owners - hire the resourceful Takezou.
With a stroke of genius, Takezou has the sisters dress in costumes and refashions the store into the perfect shopping ground for Japanese "otaku" (those who absolutely crave manga, video games and Japanese animation). Business begins to boom and the adventure is on, as the three sisters meet some of the strangest and most eccentric characters of the growing Japanese manga/anime scene.
But the road of the mania is full of potholes and a major entertainment corporation plans to muscle in on the small store's success.
Story and art by Shinsuke Kurihashi.
