(Two employees are at the electronics counter talking to a customer about anime. The particular show they’re talking about is “Case Closed” (aka “Detective Conan”). I have followed the manga and the anime for a long time. Note that I am a female customer, while the employees are male.)

Employee #1: “You have to see this anime! It’s amazing!”

Customer: “What’s it about?”

Employee #2: “It’s about a kid who solves cases. He lives with his uncle and this chick.”

Employee #1: “Yeah! His parents died when he was young and he’s, like, trying to solve their mystery.”

(I am cringing at this point, so I intervene.)

Me: “Are you talking about Case Closed/Detective Conan?”

Employee #2: “Yeah.”

Me: *turns to customer* “Actually, the show is about a teenager who was turned into a child due to an experimental drug given to him by a mysterious syndicate. His real parents are almost never home, so he is taken in by the girl he’s secretly into, and vice versa. Her father happens to be a detective, so he helps her uncle solve mysteries as a private detective. All of this so he can catch the syndicate that transformed him into a child and hopefully get his original body back.”

Customer: “Oh! That sounds intriguing! I’m going to check it out! Have a nice day!”

(The customer walks off and I resume my shopping. I overhear the employees I just talked to.)

Employee #1: “Chicks know anime?”

Employee #2: “Apparently!”
