Description: 32-year-old Futaba Kiryu is a manga artist that writes for a weekly shounen magazine. Her latest ongoing manga is a romantic comedy, "Bocchi no Ore kara Riaju no Omaera ni Ittoku" (A Loner Like Me's Got a Lot to Say about You Normies out There) or "Bottoku" for short. It is a best-seller and has an anime adaption on the works. But the truth is, she's completely clueless about romance.

The days go on as she continues on working on her manga with her manga assistants, but soon, one of her assistants, Hiro Asakura (she dubs him as "Assassin" because of his cold and intimidating demeanor), and the anime scriptwriter for the "Bottoku" anime, Kitamura Kyosuke (social media dubs him "The Tactician" for his notoriously clever execution in the anime he's worked in) grow an interest in her and eventually make a move on her. How will Futaba fare in this love triangle when her knowledge of romance is next to nothing?

Except she doesn't like him

Spoiler

 

I believe it was a open-ending based on the last chapter.

This is pretty good. An author grumbles about an issue commonly found in contemporary manga, although her own life now basically slowly turning into an illustration of that very issue. So it's giving some sort of story-within-a-story feeling.

 

The problem though, mc elaborates too much about her stance on the issue.

 

I agree.

 

I realized part way through the author is most likely doing this on purpose though. It seems like lately in the world people are so adamant about not having labels pushed on them but then come up with their own labels to refer to themselves. Most of the time it can come out as seriously over analyzing the issue and on both sides of the argument, but it really only comes down to wanting to be treated like a person respecting their own likes and dislikes in life.

 

I'd like to look at it that way but I could be wrong though.

The problem though, mc elaborates too much about her stance on the issue. Of course some kind of exposure is necessary to show us her personality, but doing so every 5 few pages, each at least 2 pages long of her rambling, would only be too repetitive you could skip pages without missing anything. We've known this side of her already, it's time to move on with the story. This might be expecting too much out of this genre (see? story-within-story just breaks another wall), but I saw that the initial idea and characters could make for something even better and stronger.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm... Interesting. Very Very interesting. It isnt everyday you get a manga about an asexual mc trying to figure out love.

This manga speaking the truth 

Oh look. Two more inexplicably single high-spec males around.

Well it seems to be fairly interesting and going in a weird direction. Don't often get characters who even say that asexuality or non-joke homosexuality exists. Interesting MC in that regard.

 

Y'all need to expand your library if you think this is even close to being considered bad writing.

"I hate romance! Just because I am a wimmin doesn't mean I"
 
"I'm a barely legal kid hi, ur mc is like u and like him ms Christmas cake"
 
"falls in love"
 
hmmm we need a Christmas Cake tag

I think you mean "bad writing" tag, and then all mangas would need it so it would be pointless.

 

Not all manga. Just most of it. Just like any other medium, really. (I mean, odds may be better for straight-up novels, where the writing is the only thing that can be good, but I'd still put it at well less than half of them.)

 

As for whether this will be bad writing or not, I'd have said the jury's still out, though it does seem to be heading cheerfully towards a train-wreck at present. ~w~

20 years old isn't even close to pedophilia. what's wrong with you dude

Where did I say this? A 20 year old person is still very young person imo although I thought he was like 18 or something.

12 years or more age gap doesn't make you pedo

what make you pedo is underage (1-15)

"I'm a barely legal kid

I'd like to remind all my fellow pseudoscientists that this manga takes place in japan and the values are much different, unless you are from their it is harder to understand. I'd also like to point out that they were all opinions of a character.

 

Either way I'll follow any manga that has an MC who hates harem.

Assassin is a lady killer!

So after the trainwreck that was the first chapter, I was actually curious how the second one will go.

 

And... well, that's pretty normal. Loner guy likes the mangaka because she draws a loner guy, even though in reality she's not a loner at all. Got it. No need for cringeworthy pseudoscience to estabilish that setting.

 

Also, the editor was a guy? Wow.

I love him.

Assassin-chan best girl.

The authors commentary on social constructs such as love and the implication that social conditioning is the only (or even the greatest) factor in its determination is wrong. Society and social constructs reflect human biology and nature, and the removal of them without fully understanding the reason for their existence leads to civilisational crisis. It's funny that the author can clearly point out the double think loners have in regards to their isolation, but cannot when it comes to the loveless MC. I only got 3/5 through the chapter, I'm probably not going to read this.

Huh??? Are you talking about "love" and her questioning why it's such a big deal/whether or not she is asexual? I'm no psychologist, but asexuals and people who are aromantic exist, and there are plenty of people who are disinterested in love/romance, albeit not for the same reason as "I want it, but because I can't have it, I don't outwardly want it." 

Ha, this is pretty good so far, comment section be damned.

Poor Assassin. He's in for a rough ride, considering how much trouble she's having with his appearance...

That was the point of her friend's rebuttal: that "the only reason women think 'women love romance' is because of social conditioning" spiel was, in the end, just the MC's self-justification to make herself feel normal. The subsequent "urk...yeah, I know...." reaction to the rebuttal confirms it.

 

In reality, social conditioning is only the reason people think women love romance more than men and associate it with them specifically. (Hence the friend's small-text "it's the same for men, too.")

What an adorable assassin ^^
