The story follows Takano Hitomi (the titular MC-female) and her senpai Usami-Yuu (MC-male). Takano is a freshmen in highschool after recently moving into the area with her much older brother. She's always had trouble socializing and making friends because of her scary face and (somewhat) asocial attitude. Despite that she's a good girl at heart, very athletic but a little dumb (academic wise). Yuu on the other hand is a short, unathletic sophomore who happened to meet Takano by virtue of them taking the same public transport together. The two become fast friends as Yuu shows Takano around the city.

Bad. Like really, monstrously bad.

Story: The story follows a group of dept-collections/loam-sharks running what seems to be a legit payday loan business while conducting illicit operations for themselves and the yakuza under the surface.

The story is equally about these characters led by the titular Ushijima-kun (who is possibly the best gangster/criminal ever put to manga-ink) and the 'victims' of the group - from a rich debutante forced into prostitution to pay off her debt, to a young businessman left for dead after being 1,000,000's of yen in the hole and unable to pay.

10/10 gritty, dark, not everyone has a happy ending, but some do. This is everything you want read more

Wotaku ni Koi wa Muzukashii follows two couples, and close friends, who work desk jobs at an unnamed company. Very different on the outside, each of them are united by the fact that they are an 'Otaku'.

The term otaku is greatly overused in western pop-culture. To be clear, the definition I will be working with is: 'a young person who is obsessed with computers or particular aspects of popular culture to the detriment of their social skills.'

That being said, calling our MC's otaku is misleading. Each has social skills, and indeed, all are very popular at work, and 3 out of the 4 were read more

A visually striking manga that follows a young human girl Somali and her 'father' a golem - one of the guardians of the forest. Somali to Mori no Kamisama follows their travels as the Golem seeks to reunite Somali with humans in a world full of 'monstrous' anthropomorphic beast-men.

The setting of the story is rich and deeply fleshed out. It follows the large, peaceful, anarchic society of the beast-men, a generic term for dozens of non-human races, who peacefully coexisted with each other for centuries until they ran in to humans. The beast-men eagerly invited the human's to join them in their paradise, but the read more

Story: 10/10 - There is no story, and there doesn't always need to be some epic tale of adventure to make a media enjoyable; and that's what Komi-san is. Pure, unadulterated enjoyment.

The tl;dr is the main heroine, Komi-san - is a beautiful, intelligent girl with crippling social anxiety. With the help of our main character Tadano, Komi-san hopes to make 100 friends. This premise serves as a segue to meet a string of colorful supporting characters, and allow them to interact in fun everyday events, that are totally new and unique to previously friendless Komi.

Art: 9/10 - Good, clean art with fun caricatures. Komi is, read more
