This manga is hilarious and a must read if you need to kill time IMO. Plot however is lacking but comedy doesn't need a plot, right? Art is okay, humor is fantastic if you understand what they are talking about. Despite lack of plot, the situation is (for me) original. It's enjoyable. It does have a lot of potential to be dramatic though.

I must say I enjoy reading this but then again, I don't think its a manga for everybody to enjoy.You have to have considerable knowledge of otaku culture to really really appreciate the manga.If you're not into that stuff,the manga becomes really dry for you fast.Half the gags are references and otaku life,so its not everybody's cup of tea.

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.

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.

Really enjoyed the manga, had great humor, had great emotional bits and i really liked all the characters. But then Volume 6 happened, thats when things got... really really dark... and not in a good way.
It literally hits you outta nowhere from vol 6 and onwards, the story gets more absurdly dark and i'm left reading this going "brah... the hell is going on here..." I just think the author got bored and or lost his gatdamn mind. Its a real shame because I really enjoyed this manga... and ending is supposed to be uplifting but there really isn't much to be uplifted by after all that has happened.

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.

..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.

That the young landlady was married to the old guy. The fact they spent so much time having the MC pin for her only to get torn down by the revelation that she as married to basically his sensei was terrible.

Until Nozomi comes back. Would have been a 10 but author tried for some crazy srsbzns that felt so opposite of the tone set by the entire manga thus far, it felt really bad. Also, the ending is way too subtle, and teases way too much,

Well, I have to say this manga is amazing. There aren't that many manga out there that can surprise you the way this one does. I have been reading manga for a long time, and generally after reading a series for a while I start to expect what's coming, and although the ending was somewhat what I was expecting early into the series, the trip there wild with surprises that made me go OMFG on numerous occasions.

Some people seem to be put back by the twist this manga took towards the end but this is a Seinen and the signs were there, it didn't just turn 180 all of a sudden like some manga tend to do very annoyingly (Kurohime and Legend of Maian anyone?), in fact I personally tremendously enjoyed these twists and was very happy of the way the mangaka put them in. He put in subtle signs here and there that something wasn't right, enough to give a sort of feeling that something will happen, but not so much as to disclose what that is until it actually happens. And yes, the stuff that happens there is ridiculous but this manga gets us used to the surprisingly good combination of "yeah, I could see that happening" and "no way in hell that could happen" so it doesn't really affect the flow of the story in a bad way, in fact, I think that strange YinYang combination is a big part of this manga's charm.

I am fairly satisfied with the ending, I dare say that it tied up most loose ends although in my opinion, if the author isn't planning for a sequel, the last chapter should've either had a few more pages continuing from the last page(you'll get it once you get there) or a few less pages. He sorta just threw in an extra loose end right on the last pages after finally managing to more or less take care of all the others.

Well, sorry for babbling on, this is the first time I actually bothered to rate and comment a manga (mostly because usually there are already comments out there that say what I wanted to say) so sorry if it is a bit difficult to understand. I tried to describe the manga as much as possible without giving any details that would spoil it for the reader.

Bottom line, this manga is really one of those manga that you just must read to understand what the hell the comments are on about and make an opinion of your own. I personally loved it, and would recommend it to anyone who likes their manga to actually have a story because the story in this one is great with amazing character development.
