Have a nice starting, somehow remain me of another manga that talks abt otaku too.
The light hearted romance manga story develop every chapter slowly but surely.
This manga give me a more shounen feeling then a seinen manga.

Overall, a decent manga that recommended to read.

In response to philip72's review; it's true that the first chapters are a bit tedious and not too realistic, but they aren't boring or dull either. Since the current chapters there's actual romantic development where the pages are bursting of cuteness ("moe"), it's a pleasant read, really; especially if you like the subject.

...and you will end up hammered like timber in Amazonian forest.

I think I worked it out: it must be all about angst. The characters are as firm or self-confident as foundation of a high-rise chinese apartment building. Frankly, I find it funny imagining how with their assertiveness they would end up dead within a year if the mangaka had a tad bit more realistic approach. I mean, if he/she makes them hyper-kawaii artists, uber-innocent otakus and super-faithful friends, gives them looooving family and portrays sweeet as aspartam relationships in this sugarcoated world - why the hell would they be so withdrawn, afraid and uncertain of everything?
Were they all molested or what?

Well, I suppose mangaka might have gone through some serious sh*t in his life. Maybe even he still stands knee deep in it. I care about it just as much as he cares about originality and fun. Nada.

Not caring is another issue I had with this manga. Reading it is as interesting as watching a cactus grow. Cactuses do not require much water, care, energy, love.. sometimes they give a birth to a small red flower or some fruit.. but other than that, you generally forget about them the moment you turn around. Be wary - this is not a bad thing, because, even if they appear somewhat boring, they will still prevail drought and lovelessness when you forget about them. They will just be there, growing slowly with every chapter, not changing much.. just slowly, unengagingly and meaninglessly growing.

Who knew that chapter after chapter of angst could be so boring. Every chapter is the same, it's like a manga version of Endless Eight but with thoroughly uninteresting characters.

Why I'm still reading this is another mystery.

k ive only read the 1st chapter and its nothing out of the norm style of loser mets hotty. the arts ok n im willing to read to see where this manga goes, but i really hate how these kinds of manga always have the biggest loser for its main character and he gets the hottest chick around without doin anything like there are guys that are losers that can get the hotties but they got some redeeming feature to them that peeks at the girls interest i just wish these kinds of manga had a main character that i could like or even relate to cause ive been thinkin 3d girls were cute ever since kindergarden like the only thing kindness will get you is a 1st place spot at the friendzone


.... ok after reading up to chapter 18 it wasnt as bad a read as i thought it would be its slow paced and everyone talks too formally but it was entertaining and had a few funny moments there not much development in the plot much less character growth but if ur lookin for a light hearted manga this wasnt so bad

Let's get to the negative part first. It's slow. Reeeally slow. The main character is very unsure and often misses good chances to improve himself. But it's also a strenght of this manga. (From now on watch out for spoilers)

He's got only a friend at the start of the story, and as of chapter 51, he's pretty much in the same situation. But that's far better than a sudden change of lifestyle that would make this manga really cliche and uninteresting (how many times have we seen a supposedly loser character turn into a popular one in a matter of seconds, to the point that we can't even tell why he was a loner to begin with?). And there is character development: it's slow paced, so it's not for everyone, but it makes it more enjoyable to me. The main character is not improving in his actions, but he's surely and gradually understanding what he has to change about himself. It's not that his flaws are ignored by the mangaka (that would make it annoying): the MC is the first to point them out.
You won't believe it, but I consider this manga really original for many reasons:
-Instead of having the MC struggling to understand his feelings, he's the one who is most sure about them, way more than the main heroine (it's the whole issue of the manga after all)
-We usually have a character who isn't able to spit out what he feels, so he does it through actions; our main here is the opposite, he's actually confessed countless times (to the same girl), but he can't bring himself to take the initiative
-If the MCs are supposed to be a bit awkward in this kind of manga, then why exactly do all the girls end up swooning over them almost immediately? Well, this main character has regular interactions with 3 cute girls and an older one, and none of them sees him as a love interest (even his crush); not only that, but they most likely won't ever (except the main heroine of course)
-There is character development for the side characters too! Actually a little flaw is that the main couple's friends get even more development than the "heroes" themselves; but it's logical if you think about their personalities, and it actually serves the purpose to balance the slow pace and prevent the manga to get boring
-While the MC is head over heels in love, he is in love with the actual person, not her curves (an otaku who's not a pervert, who would have said); he actually cares about stuff like his crush's future career, and he's also interested in his best friend's issues

In the end we have a slow series with likeable characters and a good-for-nothing protagonist who is struggling to change, and for once can't do it by snapping his fingers. If given its time, this manga could bring a really well done character development. We'll see; for now, I'd recommend this if you have the patience to wait for the characters to mature, because I'm sure they will.

Not quite sure how to rate this one. The art is nice, the story (although very cliche) is decent, but something just isn't right. You know a manga has problems when the budding relationship (and the accompanying backstory) of their respective best friends is much more compelling than the main couple themselves. There is nearly zero progress between the destined couple, and the main character has the backbone of a jellyfish.

I think this will be worth the read eventually, but I would recommend marathoning it once it's over.

I cringe whenever our most venerable and spectacularly dull protagonists suddenly become acquainted with a 'school idol' or w/e. Yupe it's that kind of manga where you could already see everything happening from 20 miles away. But the artwork is very cute and consistent, the atmosphere is nice and not too corny (yet), the pace is even and straightforward. So I don't want to sound too harsh, even if it hasn't done anything to impress me yet.

commenting about the comment by Verix about philip72. he is absoluttly right, this manga sucks, slow paced and very boring.

Someone must have made a mistake this is by no means seinen, this is classic shoujo drivel.
If you are reading this comment and are thinking about reading this manga STOP!!!

trust me this started off promising. got stale real quick and this is still not axed yet many better mangas do get the axe. >_>
