From Seven Seas:
Recent high school transfer student Hasegawa Kodaka is pathetically inept at making friends. When he comes across the brash loner Mikazuki Yozora, who typically chats with her imaginary friend, the two outsiders become the unlikeliest of allies. Realizing that they have no hope of a normal social life, the two outcasts decide to form a group called “The Neighbors Club” in order to make friends and maybe even learn a thing or two about social skills.

Great start but rushed ending

The story was fun and funny and the characters had some depth to them and most of them developed as the story progressed.

The overall story and pacing was great until maybe the last 5 volumes and everything just felt rushed and underwhelming. Apparently, some important scenes in the LN were not put into the manga and it followed the same inconclusive ambiguous ending.

It could have been great if they just developed the last volumes better, but the ending felt like a miss similar to what Prison School had done.

Post-Anime Material: Volume 15 Chapter 65

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
If you watched the anime, definitely start reading from Volume 15 Chapter 65. It's what happens RIGHT AFTER the anime ends. Kobato Kodaka (bro) finally confesses his love in Chapter 65 early on. Then, in Chapter 66: "Kobato's sister has no friends" we're face to face with a little bit of Yozora in the shower action. It's both arousing AND funny with a little bit of a nod to Edvard Munch's "The Scream".

Comedy harem that's actually funny for once

Absolutely hilarious. Especially if you're familiar (or maybe open-minded) with japanese anime/video game culture. The manga conveyed the comedy better than the anime in my opinion.

Some people like it for the cute girls, some for the romance. Pick your poison. It's a fun read.

It starts off meh, but at chap 26, when the characters start to have feelings for eachother, the romantic plot really takes off. Excellent read, but only if you are willing to bear the shitty first few chapters.

Just kidding, well maybe. It's hilarious, and the romance is just right. I highly recommend! The characters are all entertaining. Each one has something fascinating about them. I also praise the art style and character expression. Yozora is the most verbally fantastic character in fiction, imo. I'll be buried with this manga.

I'm probably being too harsh, but I really don't see how this manga is all that great.
You have a very cliché cast of characters having all these so called hilarious moments, but I just don't see how it truly sets itself apart from the rest of the pack. Name calling is hardly funny to be honest. I'll admit I like the art, and some moments are funny, but you compare this to some of the true greats and it lacks. I'll continue to read it, and maybe the manga will make me change my opinion, because I know there is plenty of room for improvement.
For now it gets a 6, and that means it's decent.

Interesting characters

Some people may hate Yozora, but to me she is one of the coolest females in manga. She doesn't just shut up and blush at every little thing, and she is verbally abusive and sadistic rather than physically violent and willing to anything for friends. It may not make a lot of sense but i find her attitude unique and interesting.

I really did. I can't like Yozora. I don't have a problem with flawed characters or "tsundere" types in general but she's just too much. The "Connect" chapter was the final straw. It was supposed to show some events from her perspective and to my shock it made me dislike her even more.

If you can read the first volume or so and still like Yozora then go ahead and read the rest. Else, go find something else to read. There's plenty of harem type manga available.

Skip this Manga

I am not going to praise this and there aren't any spoilers.

The premise sounded really interesting but the Manga is shallow as anything can be. The characters are cliche and have no depth. One learns to hate all characters apart from Yukimura, which I am indifferent to, Maria and Kobota which are likable.

Yozora, the female "lead" is a sadist bitch with cruel tendency to humiliate and insult the others. Yet the author expects us to feel sorry for her when she is down.

Sena is made for adolescent boys. We are meant to believe this walking breasts is at the top of her class but somehow is a complete doormat for Yozora.

Rika is a freak.

I didn't find it funny just crude. If you are after ecchi then there are better Manga's to read, if comedy then this is pretty low. My mistake for starting this, I am not a fan of harem and should have realised what a p(b)ile of crap this would be. Don't let the premise fool you, its nothing to do with making friends,

Why so serious?

Cute, funny and fairly original in terms of execution if not setup, this is a quality comedy. It touches on students who are ostracized but it does not dwell long on the negatives. Though much of their trouble finding friends can be attributed to straight out prejudice, especially in the case of the half blooded protagonist, the manga tends to focus more on their defective personalities' faults which are often (though not always) at least partially the result of their initial ostracizing in the first place.

Chapters consist mostly of the club members researching ways to find friends. Activities are largely attempts to become comfortable with social situations which fail due to their unwaveringly bad personalities.

On the topic of loners, if you want to see a realistic depiction about kids ostracized from class, this ain't it. Realistic stories about loners are depressing like Columbine and Virginia Tech. Outside of dark comedies like Zetsubou Sensei, it wouldn't be funny if the story was about the half Japanese kid who gets depressed and commits murder suicide against six other kids.
