Kotatsu originally launched the romantic comedy on their X (formerly Twitter) and pixiv accounts in January 2020 under the title NEET de Otaku na Kunoichi to Nazeka Dousei Hajimemashita (Somehow, I Started Living With a NEET Otaku Kunoichi), with Yaki Tomato in charge of the storyboard. The web manga has been published as a doujinshi for four volumes since August 2020.

Digital manga distribution company Number Nine began releasing the manga digitally in August 2020. Kadokawa acquired the manga and published the first paperback volume in August 2021 under its Dengeki Comics EX imprint. The tenth volume of the digital edition and the third volume of the paperback edition were both released in March 2023.

Otaku Kunoichi ≒ Otaku NEET ≒ Girl with Zero Romantic Experience!

A normal salaryman, Tsukasa, is attacked by a Youma and is gallantly saved by the appearance of the genius kunoichi, Shizuri. However, when she is not working, she becomes an otaku NEET... Today, Tsukasa's househusband skills will continue to spoil Shizuri. A prescription delivered directly to you♪ (Source: MU)

@CocoaGalaxy Um, what exactly seems impossible to you about this show?

Feb 11, 10:27 AM by RobertBobert

I'll be honest this feels like bait to me. I mean we'll see when it actually airs, but really man.

I never read the manga. I'm down for a sexy show about a kunoichi who just sits around at home, but the PV looks like Mato Seihei no Slave. Trailers lie, so we'll see how this turns out.

Is there a blossoming of meta-plots now? The premise of this show is as if it was made in a construction kit from different genres and archetypes.

Director: "We are commissioning you to draw art for our NEET anime"
Artist: "Feet anime, understood boss"

So it's basically Umaru, but with trio of magical girls styled as ninjas. Might be fun.
I like the cute foot in the poster and main girl wearing glasses.

sexy ninjas eh very hot

Pretty girl? The director who made Shinmai Maou no Testament? Fanservice?!? It's excellent, however it's sad that the age rating won't aim us for something hotter like Magical Girls. On top of that it's a romantic comedy and not without surprises.

I suggest you check out the rest of Yaki Tomato's work, this man has a fetish for "sudden" appearances of hotties.

I thought we killed off and buried Umaruchan years ago, but no it came back in a new form.

Looks like a cringefest lol.

Not gonna lie, the PV looks mind-numbingly boring and deliberately awful.
