High school student Junta Shiraishi has a simple goal—to live a fulfilling youth. However, achieving this goal appears to be harder than expected, as everyone in his surroundings often fails to notice him due to his lack of presence. In fact, Shiraishi's lack of presence is so severe that people think his seat in class is always empty, and mistakenly assume that he often skips school. There is even a weird rumor spreading around in class, claiming that those who successfully spot Shiraishi will be blessed with good fortune for the day.

So far, the only person who notices his existence is Nagisa Kubo, the girl seated next to him. Unfortunately for him though, Kubo likes to tease him on a daily basis and often puts him into unprecedented and nerve-wracking situations. However, as Kubo's playful antics continue to involve the reluctant Shiraishi, he may soon discover that his youth might not be as boring as he initially thought.

This is a very cute romance story with some fun comedy. The concept of having a mob character as the main character is pretty unique and it brings out some very good story beats and the comedy surrounding him works well. The main character, Shiraishi Junta, is drawn with barely any distinguishing features that you'd expect from a main character but that's the point, he's basically a mob character and even worse he's basically invisible to any other character in the story so his appearance is tailored to that while the female main character, Kubo Nagisa, is a very cute character who is drawn distinguished ...

Preliminary (27/152 eps)
Spoiler-free review(this is what I have to write I think) anyways:

I really liked the manga because as you can see I rated it a 9/10, I’m usually very laissez-faire with my reviews and scores because I really don’t care ie: I’m not that hard core into rating mangas and/or anime so here is why I didn’t rate this a 10;

My first and main reason(probably my only one, yes I didn’t think this review through if you were gonna ask) is HOW DENSE THIS MC IS LIKE I GET YOU HAVENT INTERACTED WITH MANY WOMEN BUT DAMN, I see how people might like this trope and ...

There's two kinds of good natured teasing. You can give your friends shit about stuff, in a fun and good natured way. They give it back, the world goes round, life is good. You can flirt with people, either romantically or simply for fun. Again, good stuff.

When that teasing crosses the line to making someone clearly uncomfortable. When they are absolutely not into it. When you NOTICE that and CONTINUE ANYWAY.

Then that is bullying. And this manga? This manga isnt about teasing the girl teasing the guy. The way this is written is simply bullying.

I have read 85 chapters of Nagatoro. I have *enjoyed* reading ...
