The story of Salaryman Trooper has him starting off doing part time jobs around Tokyo sweeping the front of shops. This time we see him sweeping the front of a bookstore called Taiseido located at the Hachiko crossing.
From time to time he would help the ladies hand out free magazines.
Walk around places like Shibuya and Shinjuku and you will likely have collected a load of free magazines being handed out. The publishers collect a load of advertising which pays for the print run and makes a profit which is how their business model works.
Many of the free stuff handed out contains food coupons for restaurants located around the area where the magazine was handed out and some of them come with free accessories like bags, combs and wot not just like the ones these ladies have.
Some of the stuff handed out is moderately interesting but only for a read while one is waiting for a train of having a poo.
Do they hand out free interesting mags in your neck of the woods?
