Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou Manga Omnibus Volume 1 features story and art by Hitoshi Ashinano.
Set hundreds of years in the future after an environmental catastrophe, Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou (also known as Yokohama Shopping Log) centers on the simple life of Alpha, an android who runs a small coffee shop in coastal Japan. Alpha stands witness to chronicle the end of humanity's days with coffee, a slice of watermelon, and the sound of her moon guitar backed by distant seagulls. Quiet and bittersweet, this tale is about the melancholy beauty that can be found even as the end approaches.
Winner of the Seiun science fiction award for Best Manga, this beloved series launched in the mid 1990s and ran for 14 volumes, inspiring anime and garnering critical acclaim. Seven Seas is proud to present this series in English for the first time, with the entire story combined into an oversized five-volume set.
