Hasegawa Kodaka has transferred schools, and he's having a hard time making friends. It doesn't help that his blond hair tends to make people think he's a delinquent. One day, he runs into his bad-tempered solitary classmate Yozora while she's talking animatedly to her imaginary friend Tomo. Realizing that neither of them have any actual friends, they decide that the best way to alter this situation is to form a club and start recruiting.

That is how "Rinjin-bu" was formed, a club specifically designed for people who don't have very many friends. As other lonely classmates slowly join their little club, they'll try to learn how to build friendships through cooking together, playing games, and other group activities. But will this group of relationship-challenged misfits really be able to get along?

First of all HAGANAI is not the classic harem maybe fits better the definition of Harem deconstruction and school growth, besides that four things, explain this work for me and maybe fits well as light summary

FIRST: Mixed feelings
SECOND: perfect example of how a battle between the author and editor can destroy a work.
THIRD : writing two pieces at the same time especially the end of one while you are starting another is not a good idea
FOURTH: good ideas bad execution at the end

First, I have to say that I first watched the anime then I started de LN from the beginning
The anime read more

A review of "Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai"

This book was recommended to me by a certain place, and I find it extremely interesting. I also got it at a very reasonable price.

The characters all felt like they were just copies from other works I've read, and that's quite alright, cause I love when an apathetic guy gets dragged into the creation of a club! Looking at you Kyon, you lovable, sarcastic, unwilling club member. Oh, and Kodaka too I suppose.

The plot development is what you'd expect from a romantic comedy, full of the standard anime shenanigans and your share of odd characters. read more

I generally enjoy the typical love comedy harem type of anime, manga and light novels. For Haganai, however, not only did I simply like it, I absolutely LOVE it.

The characters in the novel are interesting, and slightly unique in their own ways. I love how the members of the neighbours' club converses amongst themselves, throwing in a whole lot of insults and unwholesome things all over the place. Take for Mikazuki Yozora,whom probably has the best choice of words I have ever seen in any manga, anime or light novel. Its not just simple insulting and swearing. Its an read more
