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.

=.= Yozora is definitely not like Haruhi....(from Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya?) Yozora may be eccentric, but nowhere as much as Haruhi. Don't read the manga of Haruhi Suzumiya, it's nothing like the light novels or the anime, if this is where you are getting your info. And Boku wa Tomodachi is not "copying" from other mangas. It's just coincidences/cliches, since if that's your opinion of copying, then there are alot of mangas that copied each other.

Anyways, Boku wa Tomodachi is a very nice comedic manga! I recommend it to everyone who likes to laugh!

Reply again... after a couple months.. =.=
OH! That's what you meant by that creating-wierd-club(but a lot of animes do have them making "weird" clubs), but i haven't read any of the other mangas you mentioned(cept Angel Densetsu), so I'm sorry that I do not know who else you are talking about. =.=

Better than the sum of its parts

BokuTomo happily copies some of its parts from other school and harem comedies, but uses them together in a surprisingly effective and relatively original way alongside its own ideas. The eccentric student club is taken from Haruhi among others, Kodaka is like the protagonist of Toradora, Yukimura is an obvious parody of Kinoshita from BakaTest, the girls basically form a Negima!-esque harem, and like Seitokai no Ichizon, it pokes fun at otaku culture.

What it adds to this formula is a more likable protagonist (Kodaka is funny, strong and quirky, rather than being a boring and geeky reader avatar), insane girls who don't quite fit into any stock character, ala Breakfast Club (like an arrogant rich blonde who suffers the jealous resentment of others and loves H-games) and just plain funny situations. My favorites include the girls' failure at playing a dating sim and the collective novel writing.

It's fun. However, just as a warning, you will enjoy this manga more if a) you are familiar with otaku culture, as there are many in-jokes and references Lucky Star style; b) you can tolerate jerks as main characters and realize they are not meant to be agreed with; c) you like, or don't mind, 'weird' (by western standards) and sexual humor.

First of all, I wasn't comparing *Yozora* to Haruhi specifically, but rather the basic 'unusual club' setting. (In fact, I specifically said that the girls weren't stock characters, but rather, deconstructions.) I do think though, that with hindsight, a much better comparison would have been to the clubs in Seitokai no Ichizon or Seitokai Yakuindomo (at least in their anime versions). I also wrote "among others".

Secondly, I stand firmly by my stated impression, when I read BokuTomo, that it inherits some of the specific ideas and conventions of previous work(s) (and yes, you know what, a lot of manga/anime indeed do that) AND cleverly subverts them, AND has ideas of its own. I find it hard to believe that Kodaka's mistaken reputation for delinquency is a 'coincidental' similarity with that of Ryuuji (or that Ryuuji's wasn't itself inspired by the hero of Angel Densetsu...) - likable though he is. Or that the adorable and funny character, Yukimura, would have existed without Hideyoshi from BakaTest (even his haircut is similar, and yes, I'm aware of the spoiler about him). Or that BokuTomo isn't (at least, so far) a harem manga - a very well-established, well-known format.

Perhaps "copies" sounds too pejorative for a manga which I love, eagerly read and recommend; I wouldn't have given it a rating of 8.5 if I didn't, but, well, "It's just coincidences" isn't an accurate analysis of such elements either. And what's the real difference between 'obeying a cliche/convention' and 'copying previous work'?
