• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Okashi Nako is a poor orphan in the literal sense, living through life from one meal to the next since she isn't always guaranteed a meal the next time. Worse yet, the store she was working for had gone under thanks to the recession, so now she's lost her only source of income.

Thankfully, she finds a job in the want ads asking for a woman her age to work a cushy job as a sales clerk at $20 an hour. She's initially worried at first, wondering if the high pay is due to workers being expected to do questionable stuff by the boss, but relief settles in when she learns that the boss is a woman named Otsuka Ren.

Until Ren reveals that she's a lesbian.

Of course, despite her sexuality and position, she won't take advantage of her workers. However, there's a chance that while spending a lot of time together, feelings may develop, people may fall in love, and... oh look, all the applicants are leaving now.

Well, all the applicants save for Nako, who doesn't really care about that and is still wondering what the job will entail. After a few more talks, Ren decides that she likes Nako's personality and hires her. Oh, and Nako has no need to worry about Ren's sexuality, since Nako really isn't her type.

As an aside, the $20 per hour thing? Turns out that Ren is just bad at estimating the going rate for her sales people.

And so begins Poor Poor Lips, a Girls Love Yonkoma Gag Series by Hayako Goto about the life of a rich lesbian and her poor employee that manages to have a surprising amount of depth beneath all the puns and jokes.

The manga is licensed in english version and is available for purchase worldwide in Jmanga.
