What I love about this manga is how relatable it can be. Much of the humor is cringe-humor, and it's sometimes fueled by second-hand embarrassment. I find myself cringing and feeling Tomoko's embarrassment a lot, but it always turns out funny and very enjoyable. It's also one of the very few slice-of-life manga I really love. And I don't know about you guys, but I really like the added touch of digital hearts that shine in the light on the front and back covers (As shown in the picture provided). The cover art is really nice to look at. If you're into cringe comedy and can handle embarrassing situations, give this manga a try!
No Matter How I Look at It, It's You Guys' Fault I'm Not Popular! (what a mouthful!) stars Tomoko Kuroki, a first-year high school student who, despite constantly playing dating games in middle school, is barely able to muster the social courage to say goodbye to her homeroom teacher on the way back home. Although it's not explicitly stated, the amount of shyness and social delusion on display here gives me the strong impression that Tomoko has social anxiety disorder, but it's not impossible to relate to her. Everyone has had that time where they thought their fellow classmates were lame, and everyone's had that time where you've felt a little lamer than your friends; it's just that instances like these are, for the lack of a better term, cranked up to 11.
In fact, this is one of the few books I have read where you can get quite the intense feeling of secondhand embarrassment. There were more than a few times when I thought to myself "do I dare look at the next page, or even the next panel?" for fear that I would cringe to the point of collapsing in on myself. While that doesn't make the material sound like much fun to read, it's actually quite entertaining if you look back and think about the lame things you did as a teenager.
In short, don't come into this series expecting a cutesy high school story, and the artwork compliments this train of thought quite nicely (some of Tomoko's reactions are just...well, weird-looking). If you're bored with stereotypical high school, slice-of-life manga but still want to read something in the genre, this is the book for you.

It's really just a slice of life manga with no real plot but that doesn't make it any less...Read more
