16-year-old Murai Masahiko is a fat, ugly, gaming-addicted social outcast with a fetish for the smell lingering around a scumbag in his class. When a beautiful girl named Mizusawa Haruka transfers into his class, one thing leads to another and they start dating. But there's a truth that Murai is all too aware of: Mizusawa Haruka died five years ago.

Wasted potential

The first volume of this manga is truly great. Very interesting premise with an unconventional MC and creepy horror elements. I blazed through that first volume and couldn't wait to move on to the next. Unfortunately for us readers, there is a massive drop in quality in Volume 2 and by Volume 3 the story goes completely off-rails.

Generic plot developments, completely unnecessary supporting characters that add nothing to the story and forced dramatic 180s in character personalities. Very shitty ending as well.

I've never read any other horror manga other than this, since I'm a fujoshi who is usually reading yaoi mangas.Honestly saying,I've actually read Dead Tube other than this. I found of these very nice, while Scumbag Loser better.It's pretty heart-touching and all. I almost cried. I feel bad for Murai though.
I've got nothing else to say. It'd be actually best if there weren't those cliches here and there in the manga. They are forgivable and avoidable though.

Mounting Horror, from the Perspective of a Loser

This is a strong horror manga, rendered with great drawing skill carefully laid on to depict the ugly, the beautiful, and the grotesque as appropriate. The characters are twisted, but also consistent and driven.

Above all, this pulls one in and doesn't let go until they reach the (debatably) okay ending. The beginning and middle and gripping, and if nothing else I would have one read the first two volumes and then the last two chapters. I don't think the ending was as strong as the other parts, but it certainly wasn't a complete let down.

actually i really want to give 9 out of 10
but the ending is not the total conclusion and have some bad vibes on them
the after story bonus is just a little explanation

many untold on this
but yeah the story is great but revolving too fast and have unfinished ending for me

i recommend this to read but just beware, the ending is unfinished and not satisfying

"More father, more!", said the goatboy to the Hicks... ^_^

I like'em, those twisted authors, refreshing like a cold winter wind.
Drawing are nice, plot... well too early for that, maybe some surprises will pop up. 5 chapters at this given moment and so far so good.

This is great. It's vast improvement over the other work Shinigami-sama ni Saigo no Onegai o/Last wish to Shinigami. The art is more detailed (hey backgrounds!) and the plot is more solid. A main design for horror/thriller is to keep the audience in the dark, so far at chapter nine the why and how they operate is still unknown just that they do. There might be derision at the MC but watching him transform into a manifestation of vengeance is exciting.

It's a monthly release, why isn't it translated already?

Very nice hook from the first two chapters.

I have no idea who the target audiences are, but I'm going to follow this for sure. This is definitely for the more mature audiences. There isn't really gore or anything, but the main is pretty disgusting. His "girlfriend" is probably what make or break for people hoping to get into this series, since the mystery surrounding "her" is the main plot.

Here's hoping the this won't axed like the author's other brilliant work (which should've seriously been serialized on another magazine).
