i guess the thing that drew me in to read this is the title...parenthood vs. otakuism...thats something hard o picture because i picture otaku peole as solo flyers without a sense of resposibility because they lost their contact with reality...vs. the image of my responsible and loving parents...

lolzzz...this manga pictured everything in here!! i love it!! i can really see teh struggle of Kouta against his old hobbies and his love for his daughter...its so heartwarming!! especially the latest chapter...omg i miss my own dad!! : < i cant wait for the next scan!! wahhhh!!~

just finished this. well gotta say i have enjoyed it!~! the drama, the comedy, the anime references thrown here and there and more drama.. well, the plot was just like a scrambled egg of sorts.. and lets just say i like omelets so i dont feel like degrading my rating and i really liked the characters, the only thing that kindda dont get is the bonus chapter? i mean i was like WTF? or maybe the skilled assistant that the editor brought was Koutas and.. but thats not possible is it? well.. that feels like a gag. so i wont take it seriously. so yeah. great happy ending.

In the beginning of last chapter i was like "ohhh... happy end", but at the last few pages i was like "WTF?! AGAIN?"
Well, that was great, so waiting for season two.

If this is the ending, well ..... uh.... i guess it can be acceptable . even on the last page were it feels like the same thing that happen with his daughter. (somehow he got her pregnant, and im pretty sure he doesnt remember what happened)

..the recent development was a complete mess. The mother goes b!tchy, while the half-blood brother and his father are nude freak. The only good thing here is the pure love of father-daughter between Kanau and Kouta, although I think it's a little odd under the circumstances.

I started reading as a training for my english, as like any other manga, I read mainly because of the comedy... that`s a must for me...

And in this style there`s so many comedi-romance manga, and so many are just a lame excuse for fanservice...

It`s very impressive how things turn out, how the autor developed the characters, explaining the reasons to their actions... it`s a slice of life, with very true situations... the emotions and feelings that everyone has for one another, the fails in love... very interesting...
a must read...

Rage rage and more rage.Probably my first manga that has fallen so low on the ratings from a good rating.I began reading it as a comedy,but the author decided to mind blow us completely by getting rid of his unwanted characters by making them act as complete bitches.And the worst part is that the evilness of the characters is presented not in a natural kind of way with all the consequences that sth like this brings in,but in a supposedly funny way.If you read it till the end you will get my point,but be prepared.If you want sth similar but without rage,try Genshiken or Doujin Work.

I like this manga, Found it very funny, but after the stupid plot-twist on chapter 44, it has gone downhill. My rating for this was 9 out of 10, but after that it is 7 out of 10. I hope the author can redeem it, but I doubt they will ever mention it again and the certain character will stay an annoying secondary with no real point anymore.

I thoroughly enjoyed this manga, from it's upbeat downright Otakuness, to it's serious responsibility and parental overtones...
It's clever, and at times can lift your spirits. This manga is average in it's approach, but great on it's creative theme, never heard an Otaku/Parent centered story... Minus allot of shoujo manga...
It's art is passable, although sometimes you wonder why it doesn't look better, because his average pages are ok, when at times he does a page that looks magnificent.

The hole that it leaves me with is, in the most recent chapter's, although it adds more realistic overtones, it leaves me with a bad taste in my mouth:
Spoiler (highlight to view)
The whole relationship with Sensei and the Manager is weird, it makes me think they just came up with it on the spot. Also the manager's mom is like a floozy of some sort, although true, they use psychology to defend that fact, and the fact that she abandoned her kid!? And the Manager barely care's about that! i felt it was a kick in the ba!!'s for me!
End Rant...
But all in all, this is a manga to read. And you don't have to know too many manga, don't listen to the comments, the scantlators added comments of which ones are obscure. The only ones you need to know are, Dragon Ball Z, Evangelion and Urusei Yatsura; and your good.

If Genshiken is your thing, then welcome to the next level. I like to think of this as a "ten years later" kind of story but, of course, more depressingly pitiful. The sheer level of "otakuness" in this manga borders on creepy, but that has its own charm. Unlike Genshiken, Otaku no Musume-san doesn't shy away from the focal point of their obsessions (it starts with a "p" and rhymes with corn!). If you're already into the dark world behind Naruto and One Piece, welcome, and enjoy.

Parenthood vs Ota-ism

Otaku's probably make bad father figures, but in this story, the mother, although not an Ota, has her share of not being a proper mother as well.

Though not very plausible in terms of character and plotlines, it pokes fun at most otaku culture, which makes it a great read for me. Since it is still at it's early stages, it's hard to pass judgement as to how worthy it will be to follow this manga to it's entirety.

For now, the dilemma of the otaku parents to me are hilarious and are a worthy read, even though some punchlines and tsukkomi can be predictable.

For those wanting a perspective (which is by no means definitive in this manga) of otaku culture and the people behind them, this manga certainly is a must read.
