Synopsis

Sakuraba Yuto is a high school student who is open about his otaku lifestyle and has been recently interested in a new moe artist named Sayane. At his new class, he is assigned a seat next to Kashiwagi Kotone, the popular girl in school, who strongly shows her dislike for the kind of culture Yuto is into. He runs into Kotone at an otaku store and learns her secret: that she is, in fact, heavily into the moe culture she says is stupid to everyone. Yuto promises to keep it a secret and the two start a relationship where they discuss their passion in secret. But Yuto still doesn’t know that Kotone is really the artist Sayane that he admires so much.

Do the main characters look like a perfect, womanly tsundere and a pathetic shy guy? They do? Well they are finally not! Finally, someone dared to make two characters that actually ARE alike! The rule of 'opposites attract' is finally out of practice in at least ONE manga! Bring the champagne, we're about to celebrate one of the better girl-ish reads out here, Tonari no Kashiwagi-san!

The idea of having two characters eager to befriend each other is so very simple. So why hasn't anyone else thought of that?!
The premise is good, and Kashiwagi deals with realistic problems as she is afraid of telling the read more

I made a review on this manga already but I thought I re-do this because I want people to feel what I am feeling about this manga... One thing: This manga is the true concept of MOE...
_________________________________________________________________

Story: The story is the usual high school genre but I gave the story a 9 because the story is not on the fact of the high school itself but the building of relationship of the guy and the girl... And then another couple comes in which makes the story really interesting at the same time...

Art: I don't know what to say... Perfect? Improbable? Miraculous? The Art in read more

A boy discovers that the idol of the school is a secret otaku. He befriends her and helps her become more accepting of her otaku ways. The difference is the male MC in "Tonari" is more of an otaku, while the male in "Nogizaka" (so far) is limited to casual manga reading. Also, the female lead in "Nogizaka" is wealthy (complete with maids), while the female lead in "Tonari" seems to be of average income.
Both are easy to read, have "moe" art and an otaku main characters. Tonari no Kashiwagi-san has more drama and plot, but the comedy scenes have a similar feel to Lucky Star.
