Another great volume in this series. Boxes, boxes everywhere!

I was a bit annoyed with some choices made in the formatting of this volume. Since there generally have not been translation notes in the back (they were first randomly in the middle of the volume and later just small notes on the comics themselves which was actually helpful and fit with four panels in a way that wouldn't work in most manga) I didn't think to look for a page of notes and was a bit put off by the lack of explanation for some words. There were also extras in the middle and again a ...more

The kids are still Stupid and I still love them.

This volume introduces Nozaki's family, which is great!! Sometimes in shoujo manga, it doesn't give a good glimpse into the family life of characters, and it was pleasant to see Nozaki's relationships outside of his friends. His brother is also a Big Mood (doesn't want to exert too much energy and calculates how much energy a task will take. Same, buddy).

I love. This series. SO HECKIN' MUCH.

I really can't get over how much I love it. It made me genuinely laugh out loud multiple times--it's so ridiculous and wonderful! The characters are quirky, and yet some of them are still very easy to relate to...whether it's annoyance at a particularly irritating coworker, or (sometimes unintentionally) trolling a friend, or watching someone just keep on completely missing the point about something that should be simple or obvious.

5/5 stars, for all the legi
This manga is truly witty and adorable 😊

Everyone is so oblivious. All of them. Every last one. Except Ken.

Absurd, silly fun. After just a few weeks' break between this volume and v. 3, I couldn't tell two of the male characters apart. I can't be too hard on myself for that. They don't have even the single personality quirk one expects from a comedy character, and their hairstyles and faces are identical.
Enters Mayu, Nozaki's little brother.

Favorite chapters: everything that has Kashima and Hori on it (like the festival) and Wakamatsu and Seo (like the festival); Ken-san and Nozaki's first meeting... But the best of the best, the pajama party, with all the boys (Nozaki, Wakamatsu, Mikoshiba, Hori). I was laughing the whole chapter.

I want more yonkoma (4-koma - 4 panels) manga. Seems like this kind of manga is the funniest.

Hilarious! Especially the otome game chapter, which was probably one of the most glorious chapters I've ever read in comedy manga.

Seo and Waka is <3 <3
This volume is until where the anime ends, so a couple of storylines from this are sure to be recognizable - the whole horse head scene, and the festival (both of which are extended in the anime, and that made it better). But the major theme is Nozaki trying to make his manga 'Let's Love' more interesting and dynamic, and he does some weird things again to test out real-life scenarios to include in the manga, much to Chiyo's disappointment (because she is the only one blushing and thinking deepl ...more

This manga is of those exceptionally rare stories in which I like all characters. However, Waka has a special place in my heart, so I really liked seeing more of him. I couldn't believe Nozaki's brother was even more oblivious than Nozaki - I loved him so much! I'm a sucker for stories set during festivals so that part was my favourite. Overall, I enjoyed this volume a lot more than the previous two.
Goddamn it.These two are so cute they need to stop.

Mayu is so so cute.I want this boy.He's exactly what Nozaki's sibling should be like in my head.Mikorin continues to be an embarssment to himself.I love it.How relatable.

Most of the content in this volume is already in the anime but I really enjoyed it nonetheless.The boys' sleepover and the 'date' between Nozaki,Sakura and Mikorin was amazing.
Another volume that met my expectation.

Another sweet look at high school life and the personalities we hide behind! Really enjoyed the introduction of Mayu (he seems so simple, strong and straightforward, yet even he has something to hide), and more playing with societal expectations in the form of high school guys learning about romance through playing a dating sim. Plus a sweet summer festival interlude.

Everyone is so a teenager!! Trying to look cool but getting distracted by simple things like food or chocolate. I like that they are getting closer with each other even though they are idiots about their real feelings.

That was fun! It had some of the festival but the big surprise fun was Mikoshiba and Mayu with Miyako. There is content in this volume (just as with Vol 3) that didn't make it into the anime so it is one of the volumes that make the case for reading the manga as well as watching the anime.

Funny and delightful and there might even be a tiny bit of character/plot stuff happening? But that would really be beside the point; it's a four-panel manga and it's really, really funny.

Reading these out of order because I've seen the anime. Pleasantly surprised to see new material not covered in the anime (i.e. Nozaki's brother, the otome game the other guys play & etc). As usual, the series is hilarious! I find myself laughing out loud while reading it - not a common occurrence for me. Seriously, every character cracks me up. : )
LG (A Library Girl's Familiar Diversions)
Nozaki and his male friends play an otome game (and get pretty into it) because Ken, Nozaki's favorite editor, offers it to him and Nozaki desperately wants to be friends with him. Readers get to meet Nozaki's good-looking but lazy younger brother, see how his parents reacted when he decided to move out for his own convenience, etc. The joke about Wakamatsu loving Lorelei (who he's never met) and being aggravated by Seo (who he doesn't realize is Lorelei) continues. Nozaki uses Mikoshiba and Sak ...more

Started this one up today. It starts with a pretty familiar story for anime fans, Nozaki trying to think of ways to make some fun surprises in his story by trying to surprise Chiyo in reality. After that, you get a follow up to the Visual Novel dating sim arc; this time, the guys get an Otome from Nozaki's editor Ken-San. Hilarity ensues.

A tentative 5 star for now just for one of the punchlines in that Otome section that had me rolling on the floor laughing.

More great humor with Nozaki and friends... If you haven't started this series yet, hurry up and do so! In this volume we meet Nozaki's younger brother, watch an awkward date at the train station (in which the friends are not supposed to use cell phones to find one another), and get to see Nozaki and friends go to a festival together. Highly recommended for a funny read.
Random thoughts:

Nozaki's parents are awesome.

I want to bite Mayu-kun, he looks delicious. Shirtless scenes? Rawr.

I see what you did there. Mayu-kun is a subversion of the strong, silent type - so dead it's annoying.

Is this gonna go somewhere? Even if it is a 4 panel...

Lol, that pyjama party...
