A transfer student at her new high school, Chihiro Watanuki is helped out by a student while finding a place to park her bicycle. After her class introduction concludes, she finds out that her seat is right next to the boy who helped her earlier that day. Her classmates inform her that he is Yuuji Yugami, the ace of the Baseball Club. However, they also advise her to stay away from him, as he is known to be a bonafide weirdo and his actions are incomprehensible to most people. Unconvinced, she attempts to interact with him, quickly realizing that he is nothing but a pain to talk to and that the rumors were indeed true.

Shortly afterward, Chihiro gets entangled in a sticky situation with the third-years, but Yugami once again comes to her rescue, albeit for his own self-righteous reasons. Convinced that there is more to him than meets the eye, she is determined to treat him unbiasedly and to live a normal high school life surrounded by friends.

There is a lot of mediocre slice of life manga out there, but when you find something good, let me tell you all, it's something special.

I've just finished reading the last chapter. What a journey. Too many great slice of life gets repetitive, because they are generally stuck in some gimmick. The characters never evolve and even in comedies this can get really frustrating.

"Yugami-kun Doesn't Need Any Friends" is not one of those. It's actually probably my favorite slice of life of all time.

Yugami and Chihiro development throughout the series is amazing. Both themselves as characters and especially their relationship. I really care for them read more

This review is heavily based on personal opinion and is heavily biased because of the human nature, feel free to agree or disagree.

Story: 9/10
The core of Yugami-kun ni wa Tomodachi ga Inai is that it's a character-driven Slice of Life manga and honestly.. it's kind of weird, I say that because I haven't seen anything quite like this before and the author did a great job of writing the story and ending it in a really satisfying way that probably won't work in any other Slice of Life stories.

Art: 7.5/10
The art is good, It's definitely not in the same level as Boichi and Yusuke read more

A second-year transfer student, Watanuki Chihiro struggles to make friends but eventually finds connections to her classmates through her seat neighbor, Yugami Yuuji. With an atypical yet likeable cast of characters this manga captures the fleeting memories of high school life and subverts the norm of the slice-of-life genre.

A true slice-of-life to the core with a touch of sports and subtle suggestions at romance, this series was relaxing to read and brightened my day. I'm thankful that the manga was motivated to progress at a moderate pace and not overstuffed with filler chapters and moreover that the manga was allowed to come to a read more

This may be the best manga I've ever read, and it's really a shame that more people have not read this. I've been putting off writing this review for a while, but I really need to be able to say something more substantial than "oh it's an amazing series you should read it because (insert generic reasons)." Since this is a recommendation to read this series rather than reminiscing about how good this series was, spoilers will be minimal (though I recommend you don't read this review, or any review, and just knock the whole thing out first).

The characters in this series are oddly human, read more
