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?

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.

"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

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 ^^

I haven't started reading yet, but I have a heartfelt message for Kiryuu-sensei:

Looks pretty good thankyou for translating!

Btw, that editor is every JUMP editor ever.
I feel as though many of you did not interpret this story the way I did. I think most of you were too caught up in her derailing rant.

the translation is kinda bad. So much buzzwords and awkward phrases.


Buzzwords like?
the translation is kinda bad. So much buzzwords and awkward phrases.

Soo... she starts bashing people who call themselves loners just to later rant about how "REAL FEMALE LONERS" suffer? This is so bad, might be a good read tho'. 

It's not that the author doesn't understand romance, it's that the main character doesn't understand romance. The author just doesn't like romance and decided to depict this story with a character that is clueless about it. This manga is supposed to portray a few characters that fall in love in a believable fashion. But if you hate psychology so much, then yeah, drop it. The main character ponders about psychology of emotion quite a bit, which is why I added the psychological tag to this manga.

im not saying the author of this manga doesn't understand romance, im saying the in-story author doesn't understand romance. this author just don' understand that people who don't like romance are less a minority than loners. unless this isn't an injection like it seems and the MC will learn valuable lessons about her hypocrisy in later chapters (she is ok with generalizing as long as she isn't part of the group being generelized)
 
look, ill just put it simply:
people who avoid company also avoid romance. all loners are avoiding romance.
people who avoid romance might still enjoy company. some people who hate romance aren't loners. thuse, loners are the true minority group between the 2.
>2d romance
this is not a case of loners tough. people who seek company, even if its only in fantasy, aren't really loners.

I was under the impression Batoto set genre tags based on the mag the manga is published in.

Well, I'm the one who added the tags. Pretty sure just about anyone can edit them. Plus it's published in an online ura Sunday magazine and the tankabons are released under Flower Comics, which range from Shoujo to Josei, so I just used my intuition for the tag.

a psychological manga
about a romantic manga
that is written by a person with no knowledge of romance
which itself written by someone with only shallow understanding of the human mind
am i the only one who sees the irony in that?
no?
figures. psyhological nonsense that justify treating humans like animals and only looks at our instincts always annoyed me. now people all around the world think its ok to forget we are past cave stage and just give in to primal urges, and thats partly popular psychology's fault.

Yep, I'm sure, since the MC is a woman in her 30s, which probably doesn't resonate well with teenagers.
