I’m honestly enjoying this anime so much, I look forward to the next episode every week.

‘Love is hard for otaku’ to me, is a simple, funny and cute series with some references here and there, displaying the struggles and benefits of relationships between otaku, whether it’s just a friendly relationship or something more.

The main characters all have their own characteristics and interests and lets be real, Hirotaka is hella cute I am shaking. Anyways! The relationships between the mc’s are developing as they get to know each other more and more and I am truly enjoying that journey, especially the little fights between Hanako and read more

Are u sick of all those high school setting romance show? Did u just finish ur job feeling tired trying to find some refreshment? Look no further as Wotaku ni Koi wa Muzukashii (Wotakoi) has got u covered. This is a very laid back show, if youre already have enough of the action shows this season provides with us, heres one that ill highly recommend for anyone who is up for their time.

Wotakoi is a very well done rom-com series set in modern day Japan, covering our fellow otaku MCs, and otaku side characters. As aforementioned, our MCs are otakus, they like anime, read more

Who had enough of looking for a fulfilling romance in anime? Who got tired of the school-setting romance with dense characters that don't acknowledge their feelings until the last minute of the anime and they don't even hug or share a kiss? I don't know about you, but I have had enough!

I tried a lot of romance anime in search of one that has the characters confess in the beginning and then the remaining of the series is them developing their relationship. But I was always disappointed. That is until I came across Wotaku ni Koi wa Muzukashii.

In the beginning, I tried watching the first read more

Wotakoi is quite simply, Spring 2018's premier rom-com series. Why?

Imagine that someone you know (or yourself) is already an otaku, who cares for nothing but comikets, conventions and all that stuff. But what if love tries to interrupt everything that you aimed for, forging a relationship in the process?
What will you do?

Based off the well-received manga of the same name, Wotakoi describes the story of 4 people:
Schoolmates Hirotaka and Narumi, whom through their ominous encounter at their working lifestation sparks a cord within each other that carries them onto a relationship, with their otaku personalities on the line.
Boss-cum-colleagues Hanako (who cosplays and is famous) and read more
