A geeky girl whose life revolves around yaoi manga and a quiet gamer boy are old friends, but when they start working in the same office, they decide to date. It's a relationship of convenience at first, but could it become something more? This manga comedy is now a hit streaming anime!

Extra-long book includes 2 Japanese volumes!


Narumi Momose has had it rough: Every boyfriend she's had dumped her once they found out she was an otaku, so she's gone to great lengths to hide it. When a chance meeting at her new job with childhood friend, fellow otaku, and now coworker Hirotaka Nifuji almost gets her secret outed at work, she comes up with a plan to make sure he never speaks up. But he comes up with a counter-proposal: Why doesn't she just date him instead?

In love, there are no save points.

I really like this series so far! I love manga but I kinda get tired of just highschool or fantasy genres, this one is great because it's life after highschool and college! Some of the jokes in English are hard to comprehend BUT the author/translator does a great job explaining at the end of the volumes! I wanna read more of this series!

2.5/3 stars I had some mixed feelings concerning this story and a little unsure what to say. Originally, I picked it up because it sounded like a lot of fun and really loved the cover. The story in many ways *was* fun. However, I was personally caught off guard by the amount of perverted comments or conversations. It really put a damper on things. Though even with that said, I do commend the author because I still kept reading. This story *really* is a rom com with an awkward romance and that was a lot of fun to read. It was super cute and loved how the couple related to each other in many ways. Not only that, but I have not read a story that had fun online game roleplaying and many references to video games and anime. That. Was. SUPER. fun! I had to laugh at Hirotaka and his epic video game skills. As an excellent Mario Kart racer, that particular scene was gold. I'm still debating if I will continue the series. I wasn't super fond of both Narumi and Hirotaka senpai as well as the said perversion. Some of the smaller font was hard to read and admit to ignoring some of it when there were longer "paragraphs." If you enjoy a fun, awkward romance with great video games jokes/references, but don't mind some of the things I mentioned above, then I think this would be a great read. *(I received an e-copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.)*

This is an interesting slice-of-life office romance and I really enjoyed reading it for how sedate it was. The premise is that she's a closet otaku who starts dating her childhood friend/coworker/fellow otaku so that he won't out her at work, but this is dispensed with after the first 30 pages; the other reoccurring characters are her two coworkers -- another otaku couple -- and later her boyfriend's kid brother , and while Narumi remains sensitive about being judged as an otaku, the entire manga is basically vignettes of them all hanging out, discussing otaku things, playing video games, dating, and gradually getting closer together. It was a really relaxing and comforting read; no grand sweeping passions, but no heartbreaks either -- just the small everyday anxieties and pleasures of being with a person you enjoy spending time with.
