Just the idea of a jellyfish otaku is already funny!

This has a great premise, good art, memorable characters, and a battle between baddies and their potential victims. All of that makes me feel good, and I especially love the way it treats "odd" people with just as much respect and concern as ordinary people.

It is one of a kind.

i watched the anime for this awhile ago and was SO upset that the ending was so inconclusive (THERE MUST BE A SECOND SEASON OR THERE WILL BE BLOOD). i was craving for more of the story lately, so i finally got around to reading the manga.

GUH, i'm in love with the characters and story all over again. it's funny how at first, the amars' are completely distinguished from other characters due to their otakuness and weirdness, but then you slowly realize that the other characters are just as much of an otaku as they (even kuranosuke's dad, lmao). in the end it makes you feel like it's okay to have a huge passion for something, even if that passion becomes borderline obsession XD it's inspiring to those who have huge passions like they do and wish to build careers from them.

all of the characters are unique, relatable, funny and endearing. i love all the characters in the weird romance triangle (square?) that i don't know who to root for (kuranosuke is so beautiful and brash...but shuu is so...adorable...!!!). i highly recommend this manga for anyone looking for a funny and heartwarming story with some coming-of-age elements to it. read it!! do it for guanzhong!

well yes the story is not the same as always, I mean you got a straight dude using dresses so yeah it's weird, also the otakus and well...that's kinda the story. It has a SOMETHING, i won't deny it...I read the first chapters and I laughed a lot, but after the girls gets interested in the older guy and stuff it just felt BORED (to be honest), the otaku girls annoy me (sorry if I hurt feelings), at first yeah they were great and funny and liked the story, but...the only one that doesn't annoy me is the straight guy ...and well...
I'll read it later, because ...right now ..meh~, not interested in reading it right now.

nice story? YES,
nice characters? YES.
it has a feeling that the story is for adults (but not porn stuff or anything),
just read it if you want to laugh a lot!

Unrealistic but a good read

This is my favourite josei. It's funny, it's original, it's cute, and the art is different. I absolutely adored the anime.
However, there are a few kinks. One is that despite how little effort Tsukimi makes, she so far has like 3 hot wealthy guys after her? I'm sorry but that is just absurd. Some of the characters are so lazy and self-centered it's a wonder how they have friends (looking at Mayaya and Banba). Kuranosuke needs to stop being a d*ck and go to school, and stop wasting so much money. The way the manga portrays pretty people as airheaded and shallow is just re-enforcing stereotypes.

If you get past all of those problems though, this is a cute josei manga with great creative art and entertaining characters. To its core it's really about a group of aimless shut-ins that learn how to live their lives and work for something. I enjoyed it immensely.

This manga is unique and always fun to read. The characters in it are very original and entertaining, especially Mayaya. If you're looking for something to read that's feel good and cute without being schmaltzy, I hope you give this a try.

Lame story

Even though the story revolves around female otaku (fujoshi) and even though they get an image transformation, that transformation lasts for a few pages. So for the most part they continuously parade around as otaku. It's like reading about the ugly duckling that never becomes a swan, even when she's around the guy she likes. As for the rest of the otakus, makes you want to cringe when you see how awkard everyone is. The problem is that there's just so much verbiage but not enough character development, while most of the jokes were making fun of otakus. Also it's a daunting task having to follow the blooming romance between Shuu (the guy Tuskimi likes) and another woman. Lastly, there hasn't been any noticeable romance for Tuskimi, so far everything is about trying to save the building she lives in and watching as Shuu gets with another woman. Even Kuranosuke, the crossdresser, isn't connecting with Tuskimi romantically cause she's all about Shuu. While Kuranosuke is all about making dresses.

A great read

For some reason I avoided this manga like the plague when it first became recognized. I honestly can't tell you why; perhaps the cover art put me off. Eventually it seems that I picked it up, and instantly fell in love. The story has your typical shy, unsociable girl who has unrecognized talent and beauty. Like many manga, it has the "make-up transformation" cliche at times, but it's a little more unique than that.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
All of the unsociable, misfit girls get makeovers, not just the main character!

Each character is so quirky and fun to love, you can't get enough of them. That's what really makes this manga so great. Also, I love the art style. It's rare to find such distinctive style now-a-days, and it's great to see.
