Description: Kuroki Tomoko is a super popular, high school girl, who has had 50 years of dating experience, and 100 boys... in the Otome game world. In the real world, she is a 15 year old shut in, who has all of the qualities of a "mojo."

However, when school isn't going as she expected, and she isn't as popular as she had thought she was, she takes a look at herself in the mirror for the first time in a few years, and has some shocking revelations...

wait did the author just skip tomoko's birthday in her second school year? I know they did a birthday chapter in her first year (although that's probably coincidental)

The last couple of chapters have been a nice reflection on Tomoko's two years of high school.

Indeed, it's nice that she gets some character development and her life is gradually getting better and more eventful.

The author is doing a good job of avoiding turning the series into a repetitive one trick comedy.

Predictions for the third year?


- What ocasional characters that we already seen in past chapters may reaper?
- Will Tomoko make a male friend during first semester?
- That girl who felt ill during her admission exam, will she be Tokomo's first kouhai?
- Will Tomoki stop being ashamed by her sister and will start to talk to her at school?
- Will Uchi stop stalking Tomoko to finally become a regular friend?
- Will Nemoto become more intimate with Tomoko and share her hobby more?


I say "year", but can be only six months because attendance isn't mandatory during second semester. Nico Tanigawa may decide to rush to graduation instead of showing Tomoko doing things outside the school.

delinquent girl is still best girl. 

I like how her brother is still interested, even if just casually, about his sisters interactions with friends and classmates.
Thats sweet. And kinda normal.

I give her 10 chapters before she go full yandere mode. 


At this rate I think Ucchi is gonna confront Tomoko about her "stalking" sometime soon. I mean, in Valentine's Part 1 and 2 she was looking for Tomoko to give her the chocolates in person, and only left them in her locker after she couldn't find her. It'd be interesting seeing Ucchi react to Tomoko not even knowing what the hell she is talking about.

Anyone remember that lazy Salaryman skipping out on work? I ship Tomoko with that guy. I hope he comes back.

Did Tomoko's little brother look a little weird this chapter?

Emoji is hugging the pole cause she want to be the one hugging Tomoko. Just come forward, Emoji. Search your feelings you know it to be true

So Tomoko has a lot of friends now (kinda like a harem Lel) with the innocent delinquent girl,the nice girl(though she left :'c),the yandere Emoji face,the Pure Pervert,the plain looking one,and the misunderstood one :T I'm not going to count her cousin cuz she's just too creepy xD I kinda forgot the slut one (Yuu-chan)

The face of jealousy.

The brother is the reader.

Huh. So she actually is still interested in guys.

Wholesome Story eeh


All good things come to an end, especially mangas with likeable protagonists

Emoji is so jelly~~

The face of jealousy.


Can't wait for the next chapter tomorrow (or the day after).
I really love how Tomoko is slowly realizing that everyone else is a lot nicer than she expects them to be, because that's something I struggled with too.

Season 2 or we'll RIOT!

We have all felt that feeling of realizing too late that someone helped us, so it really touched so many hearts.
Her emotional growth this last year is really awesome.
I love this series because it just doesn't stay with one old tired joke, it developed the mc personality and appeal.
I love you Tomoko! (Sniff....)

they have concluded the "costumed hug" moment from way back then...my goodness...


when i saw that scene in the anime, admittedly on the 2nd or 3rd watch iirc, i cried. not watery eye stuff, like actual tears rolling down onto my cheeks. im not sure if "it was relatable" is accurate or actually does it justice. there was a mixture of feelings that hit me, im not even sure how to describe it. to see a return and closure of that...the feels

I'd like to remember the people here of what happened in chapter 37.

Go read what Tomoko did there.

Did the Author get a girlfriend or something? He seems a lot less depressive.

Author was always duo artist and writer, man and woman.

You go, delinquent, good job.

And dang, that was a sad little moment right there. That little gesture really meant a lot to Tomoko way back then.

This manga is turning out to be extremely sweet and feelsie as of late, not that I'm complaining.
