From Yen Press:

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?)!

its not that the manga is bad, its that the manga is too real and hit dead centre to my own insecurities and problems that it is hard to read. i can only read it backward because the anticipation for the embarrassing moment is killing me. i just read some ch but i believe this is quite a good manga, easy to read, reasonable artwork, interesting main characters and have a good message in it.

This is one of the best manga I'm currently reading. The story is very different from the usual manga themes but it doesn't wholly depart from them in it's savage parodying of those same tropes. Some people here are complaining about how it gives them bad recollections of their high school days. But the ironic thing is that this humor is specifically aimed at those people. People like me, by the way. Someone who was one of the "popular kids" probably won't find it as funny as someone who has real stories which they can relate to those in this manga. And the art is anything but "amateurish" it's its own thing, it's called originality. Apparently, for some people, any deviation from the standard is a great sin so if realistic, hilarious, creatively draw manga doesn't appeal to you that don't read this one.

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.

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.

this Manga is now my favorite, it is very unique, intriguing, interesting, impressive and etc.
the art is not bad, though probably not mainstream and the comedy is hilarious.
You should try it whenever you feel depressed of other stories, this can rejuvenate you I swear.
I give it a 9

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..

Its not the greatest story ever written, but I think the art matches the story and I find it enjoyable to read. The big thing that I like is that the girl is aware of her problem in is actively trying to change herself.

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.

it's a nice story to read once in a while, the only problem with it would be the plot. There is no plot, none of the characters ever develop, the main character is also under developed. It would also be nice to see better art, but it's ok as it is. With that kind of art, the story keeps it's self from being too depressing.

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.
