Gashapon Shop, by Alexander Shen

Gashapon Shop is a great webcomic with a fun anime style of art.  The story centers around Rainee, the young proud owner of the Gashapon Shop, a store she inherited from her parents who were tragically killed in a car crash.  She's accompanied through life's adventures by her lovable and (usually) loyal patrons and friends, Elite, Trevor, and Alex.  Though they may not always get along, when push comes to shove they always manage to pull together and see things through as friends till the end.

 

Signed Gashapon Shop sketch by Alexander Shen.  According to Alex, it's "the idea sketched out for the strip where Rainee burns her fingers on the tea".  This is directly from Alex's sketchbook, and is printed in his first Gashapon Shop book, gashapon shop volume 1.
