| Friendly | October 14, 2015

(I am in a bookstore looking at the manga when a lady browsing in the next section suddenly speaks to me.)

Lady: “You can’t read those, you know.”

Me: “I’m… sorry?”

Lady: “Oh, I’m just trying to help you, dear. I’m sure you didn’t know but those anime books are only written for weird perverted boys. Just a heads up!”

(She left before I could figure out how to respond. The real kicker is that while the manga I was looking at is about a charming and innocent young girl and aimed at ages five and older, she was in the romance section looking at steamy novels whose covers heavily featured shirtless men.)
