Tomoko Kuroki naturally assumed she’d be popular when she got to high school…but then cold, hard reality swooped in for the attack! Turns out all the popularity points she’d racked up in her video game dating sims are worth squat in real life, and Tomoko’s far from prepared to navigate high school! How can she possibly hope to impress her classmates when she can’t even talk to them?! A new high-school heroine is born (maybe?)!

I first got into manga-reading as an avenue of understanding of Japanese social life. Most manga about teen life provide insights into that life, but not to the extent this one does. For example, the great meanness to each other of which Japanese high school girls are capable is often depicted, but it is generally just shown as a given. That is, some outcast girl's school life is depicted from her point of view, from which the meanness seems unexplainable.

Here we see the meanness in spades for multiple chapters, from the heroine's point of view, and then later the viewpoint broadens out, and we get the most interesting and sensitive depiction of how very much friendship means to the girls.

It is a real pleasure to see these people interact in—at last!—a realistic way.

Rediscovering this manga was a very good thing. While it begins as a cringe humor gagfest, about halfway through it starts becoming an incredible slice of life coming of age human relationships deal that is OOZING with subtlety. It's really so fantastic, with writing that blows my mind. Wrote a loooong review on it detailing all the ins and outs of why it's now much improved. It really is so much better now.

If you've ever been kind of socially awkward, insecure, or anxious, this manga will resonate with you. Tomoko takes it to another level and it can get a bit much at times so I wouldn't recommend reading it all in one go. If it ever becomes too much, just put it down for a bit and continue some other day.

In recent chapters the character development and humor has become top tier. In the beginning it was just plain cringy awkward. Over time, the manga has gotten better and funnier. Back in the day I was unsure about the direction of the manga but I think it's evolving quite nicely. I would definitely recommend.

not that because it's a bad manga.. it's just.. i can't bear to watch her anymore.. it's so, pitiful... TT_TT
cause when i read this manga, i kind of positioning myself as her brother,, maybe if you are a female you'll feel more embarrassed -?-
(no, it's more embarrassing if you think yourself as the female lead, you'll definitely not want to continue reading this.. lol)

i suggest it if you want to try to read this manga, just grab as many chapter as you possibly can get, then start reading it..

Social Anxiety

I think this manga is a very accurate representation of how people with social anxiety feel and act. The manga has some pretty funny moments but has a depressing undertone. Right now the manga lacks character development but their seems to be potential for future changes in her life.

Tomoko makes me paranoid along with her at times. She's just so awkward, conceited, and weird. I enjoy this manga very much for some reason. I don't know why but I can't stop reading it. On a scale of 1-5 of hilariousness: it'd be a 3.5. It makes you chuckle because you just want to *smack your head* when she embarasses herself. She's so anti-social that you as a reader feel awkward for her too. A very nice, light hearted manga to read when you're bored.

Hilarious and awkward

For a manga that focuses solely on one character, it's amazing how much the mangaka managed to come up with different and unique situations. All of the situations are funny and awkward and it's great to see an honest portrayal of a socially awkward character that just doesn't end up pitying the character.

Funny but a little uncomfortable

I laughed so hard that I was disruptive. Honestly, I'm not too far in this, so I'm not sure if this has any long-term appeal. If everything remains status quo, this'll probably get old fairly quickly; I'd like to see the mangaka either introduce some overarching plot, something that forces the protagonist to develop, or some form of social commentary. I really don't care what gets added, but as is, the manga's a little too one-note. Nevertheless, I think it's really funny. I can understand why some people would get annoyed at the protagonist (who is, admittedly, very misguided and awkward), but I think she's really adorable. Also, I love her accommodating brothers; he's really hilarious as well and works very well as the "normal" character.
If you're not into awkward and uncomfortable humor, this probably isn't for you. Otherwise, try out a few chapters, and see if you like it.

EDIT: Also, props to the mangaka for creating an ugly characters that's actually ugly (but still kind of cute). I feel like ugly characters and manga are typically characters with glasses, baggy clothes, and a bad haircut, but the protagonist in this manga's a great blend of creepy cute that's both convincing and endearing.

what a pitiful girl, but she's cute, i think.. she's unique, not the usual pretty and cheerful or the silent and mysterious heroines in other manga. and the way she thinks everyone around them and her interaction with her brother quite funny..

While I did find some of this comic humorous I found it the mc to be more pitiable than anything. It's just really hard to laugh at someone whom NOTHING goes right for. If the mc had anything good going on in her life I might be able to continue reading this, but as it is now I simply can't stand it. That being said, good artwork, good paneling.
