I was going to tell you to just give it time, since it's just starting and the author might be still developing the atmosphere; but I guess I'll take the chance to go further...

I don't know if you have attempted yourself to do and share a story or some work of artistic expression; I do have tried myself, for years, and if anything I can tell you is that it's extremely difficult (for me, at least) to awaken just one frontal and sincere emotion in the public, wich also doesn't slip from my fingers, producing god knows what on who, but wich rests more or less the same and keep the entire thing in control on a regular basis. Now, this guy not just gives us one clear and intense hit per chapter, but a fair rollercoaster of them and whitin a wide range that goes from cracking of laughter, through melancholy and tenderness, to utter misery and despair; I mean, that's gotta count for something: not anyone can do that; that requires talent, courage and method; and, even if I myself normally prefer more sophisticated/artsy/intellectual stuff, I can't but acknowledge that what this guy does is remarkable, and that his success isn't just a matter of luck. That is also, I guess, partially, why I also enjoy very much SoL works in general.

Don't get me wrong: I actually sympathize with your desires; but I also think there's already enough good to reap from the series just as it is going now.

I'm with him. I have nothing against more austere mangas (or anime, VNs and so on) but sometimes you just want to laugh at what otherwise would be a serious situation.

I think this manga is doing a good job at that, and feel that is the authors intention. If it was to suddenly take a 180 degree turn to become something deep and serious, I'd probably stop reading it. NHK already managed to blend a socially inept humans misery into both black comedy but something extremely deep as well.

Oh, God, this chapter: I have actually attempted this myself before, and not just once...

I failed pathetically, as well.

Maybe there are some basis for this to work, indeed. Thought it's not given by the absence of action alone, but by it's contrasting with rare glimpses of greatness; like breaking your granted silence by saying something really smart, out of the blue (not brainy or nerd, just evidently smart somehow), or making some sort of unique awesome stand wich, henceforward, make people wonder what else could be in that beautiful mind of yours...

But, most likely, this only works over the initial condition of being considered already attractive, from the begining: no one gives a shit about what the fuck is going on or not in the pitty life of a fugly bastard. And the entire thing needs also to be authentic, not staged. So yeah: just like Tomoko, I was pretty much doomed (not that I don't belong to the hordes of readers that consider her totally adorable... even pretty).

The guys on /a/ decided to buy as many copies online as they can to show their support for the mangaka and it ended up selling out on most major sites.

Actually, every one of those got reported by /a/ en mass, and got taken down. They probably sent them to her via direct message after, but everyone in the /a/ threads are standing up for her and helping her with support. And, actually, there was a guy in a recent thread for this that said he was going to send her another dick shot, and he got publicly banned for it.

Not everyone is doing this stuff out of some twisted fetish or something. Hell, I'm proud of what they've done. It will suck when vol2 comes out, though, because we all know /a/ wont be doing that again.

I just read this in one go. She's so much like me it's just creepy, but I'm still jealous of her because she's such a cute girl.

Actually, thinking about it, I used to be even more like this in that I really actively wanted to be popular and normal, and I tried going about it the way she does. Spending time on the internet helped me kinda give up though, as in, I realized it isn't worth it for me to go through that. I wonder if she ever feels that she'd just best left alone.

Seriously though, whether someone considers himself/herself to be attractive or not has more often than not absolutely no basis in reality. It goes both ways, there are people who consider themselves to be hot shit despite looking like they were hit by truck and there are people who have complexes despite looking good. Heck, people say it's pretty common even among people who actually work in show biz including models, actors and whatnot.

Maybe that one would only venture into something outright dangerous, when one's still too naive or eager for new and exciting experiences, which them tests associate with juvenile behaviour?... Or, in other words, that the only people who'd voluntarily step into the wilderness, are those who've never been there...?

I don't know. It's just stuff for girls.

She's such an unlikable character, and strangely that makes her very realistic. Her self-centered attitude makes her suffer, and rightfully so. The story path is a tunnel as viewed through her eyes. I just wonder how much of "me me me!" the author can fit in the story.

The humor in INMFIANP can only be found if you are able to empathize with the character. If you're not able to then even with plot development and the such it still wouldn't be a manga for you. With that said and out of the way trying to find character development in this is retarded. This is just a run of the mill SoL manga with a unique and interesting protagonist who is played straight.

You could argue that there are other Otaku MC manga out there, but really not many out there are like INMFIANP. INMFIANP is one of the few that actually play it straight and have the character go through painful experiences without a Deus Ex Machina saving her.

Maybe somewhere down the road Tomoko will start learning from her experiences, but until then the manga will take it easy.

If you want a manga with a protag who is as awkward as Tomoko and fem but actually has character development you should read Kimi ni Todoke. You've probably read it however, and if you hate it it's probably because some of the characters can be fucking dumb as a rock at times. Oh and Kazehaya the male love interest is a pussy so if the characters being dumb at times didn't get to you, that probably did.

I don't think so, no. I don't recall her having much of an interest in BL. Thenb again it might be just my memory malfunctioning like it usually does.

Either way if she does anything related to BL at any point in the series (reads a manga, plays a VN, watches an anime) it's just a panel or two and it's not really pivotal to the story in any way.

After not watching any anime for half a year or so, I recently decided to give this show a try, and damn would I have missed out on something if I hadn't. I watched all 12 episodes in one day, I've never done that with any other show. I'm also through the first 5 volumes of the manga now, having read one or two per day. This is definitely one of my favorite series of all time.
That the manga has furigana despite the seinen-like content is an added bonus, makes it easier to read for me.
I'll check out the authors' other works as well, Choku! and Number Girl look like they have potential.

BTW, is there some place where I can d/l raws of the newer chapters after vol.5, other than the latest one on the official site? I can only find English scanlations.

I think light blue would be too innocent-looking. Green is a great choice, it reflects the tinge of darkness of her self-centered personality.
It's also my favorite eye color in general. Which might be because my own eyes are green.

I'm finished with Choku. It's a great rom-com, lots of very funny moments. It's a lot more absurd and improbable than watamote however, so I found Choku to be not quite as relatable, even though both Nao and Selika do have a number of things in common with me.

That latest chapter about not being able to ride a bike made me feel some feels. It didn't take me quite until 16 to learn it, but I did learn it after all my classmates etc. and while it didn't take me long to learn it I never really got good at it despite riding a bike almost every day for 1 or 2 years.
Come to think of it, it's been about 10 years since I last rode a bike.

I was rather disappointed by Number Girl. The concept has potential, the character designs are cute, but while it does have some good jokes here and there, it mostly relies on very generic humor using the typical overused anime tropes ('LOL SHE IS INSECURE ABOUT HER SMALL BREASTS XDDD SO FUNNEH!')
