Series Summary from ANN:
The story revolves around a poor high school student named Satou You. Satou goes to the supermarket one day and discovers a bento (boxed meal) on sale at half price. Just as he reaches to grab it, he ends up on the floor unconscious. Satou has just entered the fierce, no-holds-barred supermarket survival battle for half-price bento.
Kenn's Comment: I've heard lots of good things about the light novel this is adapted from. It's a rather unusual setting, don't you think? The most absurd plots have usually come out pretty well in my own experience. Plus it's got action! What more could you possibly need. Those stockings certainly don't hurt. If the novels are followed, we'll have Satou being quite the...character, so to speak, great action scenes, and some wonderful food (awesome, awesome, awesome food, illustrated).

Studio David was behind Level E from a few seasons back, and that one was a blast to watch. Hoping this one turns out to be the at the same awesomeness as that one.
