7月の月刊テーマはオススメ漫画! #2『ヲタクに恋は難しい』


For our second recommendation we have a manga for those who prefer funny, slice of life romance stories. And even if you don’t, I’m sure you’d love this one!



26-year-old Momose Narumi is a secret die-hard manga fangirl who recently switched jobs in hopes of being able to pass off the image of a perfect, beautiful young lady. However, her hopes are crushed when she reunites with her middle school classmate Nifuji Hirotaka, a handsome avid gamer nerd that knows about her secret. As they begin to reconnect over work stress, alcohol, and ramen they come to find out that love is difficult for otaku.


Wotakoi is a romance comedy which the main characters are huge otaku, Hirotaka and Narumi, along with supporting characters Taro and Hanako who are also otaku. The thing I loved the most about this manga was how realistic yet wholesome it was. It doesn’t have the forced drama, the unnecessary love triangle or the frustrating misunderstandings that could have been solved with talking that most romance comedies have. With such a light hearted comedy and pure romance its the perfect manga to lighten your mood after a bad day.
