Review: Wotakoi: Love is Hard for Otaku 1 (Otakoi: Otaku Can't Fall in Love?! #1-2) by Fujita

The awkward, romantic comedy manga about geeks in love that inspired the new anime! Can a professional man who's secretly a hardcore gamer and a woman who's secretly a fujoshi date without their hobbies getting in the way, or revealing each other's secrets? 

Extra-long book includes 2 Japanese volumes!

Narumi and Hirotaka are, by all appearances, a power couple. They're young, good-looking professionals. But they have secrets from everyone but each other: They're serious geeks! Narumi is a fujoshi, and Hirotaka's a hardcore gamer. Their sweet, awkward love story started life as a webcomic before becoming a full-blown manga series by popular demand, and is about to become a major anime series!work.

I want to thank Netgalley and the publisher for providing me with an e-arc in exchange for an honest review.

If you are familiar with my blog than you know that I'm just recently slowly making my way to reading manga and I'm eager to explore more.

I really liked the characters in this manga. They are very relatable and cute. Their hobbies kind of take over their lives and that's sometimes how I feel about reading or watching movies/TV shows, especially during my teenage years.

I believe this manga is two volumes in one and that probably explains why I thought it was too drawn out in places. I liked the second half best but the plot itself is quite slow. This is something that I have noticed in other romance manga's as well and I'm not sure if it's just me that wishes everything would develop faster.

All in all, I quite enjoyed Wotakoi: Love is Hard of Otaku and I hope I'll get the chance to read more! I gave this manga 3,5 stars! Fun, cute romance manga with great characters!
