One day Arashiyama's clever friend Tatsuno is invited to the café, and, upon seeing the miserable state of things (and Sanada, whom she has a secret crush on), decides to work there. Don't miss the crazy antics of Arashiyama and friends, mismatched love stories, and all the hilarity that is created as a result, in Sore Machi.
First looking at this anime, I gotta admit I wasn't that drawn to it. But then I saw it was a SHAFT anime, and I was like, I need to try this show out. And I'm really glad I did. The art style is odd (occasionally attractive, but in most cases just going for the luls), and it can probably be a turn-off for many potential viewers. But I can say without a doubt that this show has moved up near the top of my list for the fall season.
