really liked it

Wotakoi: Love Is Hard For An Otaku is about a group of workmates who struggle to form romantic relationships because of their OTT obsession with all things gaming and anime.

The two main characters are Nifuji, a self-professed and unshamed serial gamer and Narumi, a cheerful bundle of joy who's fandom involves writing and illustrating her own 'boys love' manga. Because of their lack of social skills, neither of them have found much success in the love department and decide to become an item themselves.

I loved the upbeat casualness of this manga and all its satisfying anime references and amusing ripostes. The brevity of the manga worked in its favour in that, plot wise, not much happens aside from the group going out for drinks, gaming, having awkward conversations heavily laced with pop culture references and the relentless arguments between the two seniors, Kabakura and Koyanagi. But despite that, Wotakoi was a fun experience that ended in a satisfying way and made me want to continue the series.
