Why Is the Prettiest Girl in School Trying to Talk to a Loner Like Me during Lunch Break?


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

“Andou-kun, good morning ♪”

“Asakura-san, mornin’…”

(I got the seat next to the most beautiful girl in the school. A person who is willing to greet a loner like me, what a kind person she is. But in any case it’s just lip service, she’ll probably find me a bother if I start talking to her )



(Even though I tried to greet him, why won’t he talk to meeee!! I can’t talk about light novels to anyone besides Andou-kun, so please talk to meeee!!)

This is that sort of school rom-com.

Since each chapter can be read in about one minute, how about using it to take a breather from “other world things”?

Since I'm the one suggesting this series to be picked-up and writing the descriptions, here's a review of it. This is a non-harem romance with misunderstanding-comedy flavor set in a modern school about a pair of the prettiest girl in the school with a loner. Two people with broken communication ability meets, one with Hikigaya Hachiman's loner mindset and the other one is a nervous self-aware tsundere girl... It's sweet and sometimes funny, focused on the two baka-couple main characters. Good to read when you want to take a break... more>> from otherworld series. The chapters are short and meant to be read in a few minute at most, it's updated almost daily. <<less

Cute and fun!

Ideal to take a breather, though I recommend not reading when people are around, they might think you're weird for grinning too much. X)

It's being translated, so not now, but when there'll be more chapters, you shouldn't read too much in one go, I think it's better to read a few chapters each days.

EDIT: 100 chapters!

... more>>

They confess and start going out together! In many Love Comedies it would be the end, but the author says that he's always curious about what happens "next", so from the start his plan was Vol 1 Becoming friends, Vol 2 Becoming lovers, Vol 3 Being lovers.

So yeah, we'll be able to see the "after" part!

Haah... Not going to say that it's that bad, but it's truly a novel that I am not suited to read. I didn't laugh even once after 30 chapters, at most I smiled a little bit once or twice, most of the time I was just kind of bored and questioning why people like this. From the way people were posting comments, I felt like they must've thought it was some of the most hilarious sh*t ever, but I couldn't see anything but a slightly cringeworthy story of two airhead... more>> lovebirds and a lot of clichés we often find in manga/anime/novels.

So, this novel is kind of special. First of all, it's somehow like a 4-koma in novel format, the dialogues barely make sense and the chapters are very short with no particular storyline, it's more like a 4-koma which changes place etc every chapter. When I say very short chapters, I mean it, you'll read a chapter in roughly 30-60 seconds even if you're not that fast. Even then, I was bored to the point of dropping it after just 20-30 chapters. Nothing really happens, just a bunch of low-level gags centered around naive misunderstandings and the innocence of two youths.

If this novel was actually a 4-koma manga, it would've been much, much better. This novel just isn't fit as a novel, it's not as funny as it could've been with all the expressions and other stuff you get in a manga version. Not that it would've been hilarious even then, but at least it would've been better.

This novel actually gives me a kind of shoujo-esque feeling, I'd assume this author is female or at the very least likes to write in a similar style, especially since the MC seems to like shoujo/josei novels. Well, it just feels too flowery and s*upid for my taste.

Maybe I just picked the wrong type of novel and although I didn't like it, it wasn't completely horrible, so I'll give it a 3/5 for average even if my personal enjoyment wasn't more than 2/5. <<less

Although the title seems to be from a typical high school harem novel, it's anything but that. It's a cute and funny romance story that's bound to make you laugh no matter what situation you are in (ABSOLUTELY not recommended to read in public places). Plus the chapters are quite short so it won't take much time to read. After reading​ it I am certain that you will like this novel just as much as I do.

Think of this as like Gamers! except the misunderstandings is dialed down a few notches. And also it's between two people instead of five. Very funny and interesting read. I have to get a checkup at the doctor's though... too much sugar (but its totally worth it).

Tsundere Popular girl with unpopular hobby trying to get close to oblivious unpopular guy with the same hobby. Sounds generic? You're dead wrong...

The misunderstandings (primarily by the male) were NOTHING like the generic rom com. Since we as the reader got the inside view of both side of the coin, you'll be surely start making tsukkomis before you know it.

All in all, this series is EXTREMELY HILLARIOUS. Hell, I nearly forgot to breathe from laughing too hard. If you're into a lighthearted rom com, give this a try. My only... more>> advice is to have a box of tissue and oxygen tank ready nearby. <<less

Your typical high school rom-com... Except it's done in such a beautiful and diabetes inducing way. The MC may be dense, but he explains why he is that way because of his concept called "Loner's 3 principals" And it just makes this story so hilariously sweet. Highly recommended for those looking for something different and lighthearted that will surely put a smile on your face and ache your "xianxia/wuxia/chuunibyou" hardened hearts. You'll be puking rainbows by the time you catch up from all the sugary sweetness you will eat from... more>> this novel. <<less

Such a wonderful little read.. First off, this series is not to be taken seriously. Reading one or two chapters a day is the way!! This is somewhat like the anime Tonari no Seki-kun, as in a girl and a boy have misunderstandings and all.. In a sweet and funny way. I dont expect this to turn into a serious romance, but that will be interesting as well~~

This is actually pretty relatable to the average LN reader, and the average loner (the commandments are gold LMAO!) and if you... more>> believe it.. It shows you why a majority of Japanese youths turn out to be virg*ns for a long time~~

All in: A good light tea time read. Very minor diabetes cuteness~~ Don't binge. The TL is awesome as well!! This is Mango approved!! <<less

The nice thing about this romcom is that every interaction is shown from both main characters' perspectives simultaneously. The misunderstandings are funny without dragging the story out for too long, and the main characters' interactions are cute.

I've read chapters 1 to 11 and overall, I'm done with this novel. I know this is a typical Japanese teen romance novel but when you can make a checklist for the amount of cliches present, you know that the author is one lazy fk head.


*Self loathing pansy (check)
*Unlikely romance of popular girl and pansy (check)
*Ara ara mother (check)
*girl brings boy to room (check)
*Writing style is so lazy that the author uses words like [ufufufufufu] [hehehehe] [eh!] to convey emotions (check)
* The use of onomatopoeia is so prevalent that it's more of a distraction than a tool to help with the flow of the story (check)
*Pansy MC is so obsessed about his v**ginity (check)


It's a headache to read and will probably fry a bit of your braincells.

So if you're looking for some cringe romance go ahead and give it a read. The plot is so shallow anyway that it doesn't need a lot of brain cells to process.

After 23 chapter I must say, the misunderstand cliche is already boring to the point of no return maybe?

Even though the chapter is so short, I place myself as MC & everyday they just accumulate misunderstanding again, again and again

Maybe when this get animated like "Gamers!", I can stomach it... even Gamers! main character is already on relationship early chapter unlike this one

... more>> I just hope they can get to relationship sooner or else I drop it... too much misunderstand cliche without real relationship is pain in the ass...

Edit: even though they're going out, they still act like chicken... I just hope this get Anime so I don't feel boring <<less

I still can't stop smiling. It's a cute story between a popular girl and a loner with the girl being a closet otaku and being a tsundere while the boy not believing that she could like him since he is a loner to the bones. It's mostly funny and cute but some parts can be a little infuriating due to one of them being a little dense.

It's first person perspective most of the time so the characters reaction to the plot becomes the plot. I usually dislike so much use of the first person point of view because I feel like the writer is usually only capable of describing half of the picture, but for this series I think it suits it well.

They both overthink the scenario in diverging directions and therein lies the source of comedy. The main girl is pretty/popular meaning she expects certain things and when she doesn't get what she expects... more>> she tends to overreact. While the main guy is quite the opposite, expecting less than nothing. In one way they balance each other out, but in another way I feel I've seen the same two characters before.

But where characters fail the plot can prevail. It may sound like I'm ragging on the series, but I think it is quite good for what it intends to do. <<less

This series is a good break from complicated novels with heavy plot or conspiracies.

Perhaps a little generic with the two main characters loner boy x popular girl, but rest assured that this one will be to your liking.

The lead pair are both naive and their innocence are obvious to see. With how these two interacts with their game of misunderstanding (comedic and romantic), you'll definitely enjoy their crazy dialogues and internal monologues.

A recommended short read romcom story.

Very pleasant read, each chapter is a little short, but it's very heartwarming and comedic to watch the MC and the heroine's interactions. If you are getting tired of reading OP MC in isekais and you really want a breather, read this and your mood will improve by miles

I honestly love this series a lot and if you liked this you may want to read Otonari no Tenshi-sama ni Itsu no Ma ni ka Dame Ningen ni Sareteita Ken it's not quite the same but unlike this it's being translated currently and is also very good.
