Synopsis

Kodaka Hasegawa is just trying to get through his school life, but one day he saw the cute but forever pissed off girl Yozora Mikazuki alone, happily talking to herself. Kodaka and Yozora started discussing how to make friends, and Yozora, with her excessive action powerness started a tragic club. Then, as things went crazy, one by one other regretful cute girls also joined the club. Together they played galgames, went swimming, and they put together stage acts. Can our hero, who got suckered into the mess, become good friends with others? The even-though-it-really-needs-much-to-desired-for-but-still-very-entertaining tragic youth romance story has been born!

Haganai: I Don't Have Many Friends.

Now this Manga was something I didn't expect, looking at the front cover all I could think was "Oh man, another teen manga with overused content". Oh how I was wrong.

Story: 8/10

This Manga is easily one of my favorite manga I have read in a while, the overall story doesn't seem very powerful at first, but as it has progressed it has slowly begun to reveal interesting little tidbits into the past of each of the characters. Now, I'm keeping an open view on the story, as I have not read the entire series (as only 3 volumes read more

Recommendations

Manga: D-Frag!
Atmosphere quite similar, being that the story takes place mostly of time in their respective clubs. Kazama is a delinquent, while Kodaka is mistaken for one, and both have a hallmark with their hair. The two series are replete with humor, with hilarious situations in the daily life of the characters.

Manga: Cat Street
Revolves around a group of misfits/unique individuals that doesn't have that many friends and ends up making a group. 
reportRecommended by elliston
Manga: Soutaisei Moteron
Making friends, being more popular, there's overlap to be had in these two searches. Especially when you have a bunch of people who manage to end up so amusingly volatile at times. 
reportRecommended by fiore777
Manga: Medaka Box
Composed of a group of characters as part of a club/council, Medaka Box and Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai are crafted by creativity. The main characters gets involved with activities/conflicts throughout both series. Through these experiences, they learn from mistakes while also making the most of their lives. Although they follow different premises, there is a lot of tension coming from both series as well when it comes to relationships. Recommended for fans who are interested in school life with atypical humor.

Manga: Kimi ni Koishite Ii desu ka.
Both have nice main characters that are cursed with a scary face (all because of their dad) and people think that they are delinquents. Both MCs were attacked a lot and thus learned to fight pretty well and both meet beautiful women and get along with them 
reportRecommended by deathmailrock
Manga: Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu
Both feature weird clubs. Also, there are lots of similarities between Kyon from Haruhi and Kodaka from Haganai, as they are both tsukkomi-type characters.
