It's Not My Fault I'm Not Popular!:

Gunpla is amazing!
Alright, so apparently /a/ found this new manga about this shut in 15 year old girl who has creepy eyes and thinks herself ugly, is very social awkward, and has alot of self esteem issues. And yet she's really cute how she acts and her plight appealed to alot of people on /a/.

No one was translating it so in a joint effort anon translated the chapters (apparently a new Raw is soon for Ch 6)

Give it a read, despite her creepy eyes she's adorable.

She doesn't have creepy eyes. Only problem is that the bags under them are 35 years older.

I must say that this is one of the most maladjusted characters I've ever seen that isn't a hikikomori, which is refreshing.

Chapter 6 is currently being translated by /a/ at the moment.

After playing an especially uh...good ero game, the next morning she finds out she's looking prettier than before.

Reading a cosmo like magazine she discovers estrogen from sOx (thats the term haha) can help improve a woman's appearance and skin.

She apparently goes...overboard.

Oh lawd. The mangaka knows of the /a/ fandom this manga has suddenly gained, , and responds on her twitter from the english fanbase.

Our protagonist is basically what the average /a/non feels himself to be (offline), except genderswapped. Of course there's /a/ppeal.

Huh? The mangaka has a twitter account based of her character?

No no no, the author is just aware of the 4chan fandom and even responds to a few fans using google translate on her twitter

That said, the character having a twitter account stroking her internet ego would be very in character

If the MLP fandom is any indication, expect independent IC Tumblrs / L Js / Twits etc. as soon as this manga catches on.

I'm tired and my literacy skills are bad...

I meant that a fake twitter account that Kuroki Tomoko would have would be very fitting for this manga.

Hmm... I'm not too sure if I like this manga or not.

So out of curiosity I checked Nico's other works on Mangafox.

Hoookay...

The mangaka is ok with the blatant pirating? Interesting. Well, I guess that, since there is absolutely 0% of this being officially translated, the author is not really being threatened by it.

Its uploaded online.

Imagine a webcomic being translated in Japanese. I doubt any author would mind.

@Burnspy: What parts do you dislike?

No wonder /a/ loves this manga so much. It's the illustrated story of their life.

And my life.

Oh God.

But seriously, yeah, it's pretty good. I'm interested to see where this goes.

Plus it has an author that knows its english fanbase and appreciates their support.

How many times does that happen?

I'm glasses.
Could probably count them on one hand.

[up]And use only one finger yes? He knows the power of english fanbases could merit him an anime.

Supposedly she. And I don't think a online uploaded manga with only 6 chapters with a minor following on 4chan is anime material.

At least for now. I'd love to see this animated but right now there is only enough content for...one episode.

I'm glasses.
I just have to say that the last panel on this page is pretty much the best thing ever. You can feel the weight of her dreams crush her right there. And it's hilarious.

It is an webcomic then? Make sense.

[up][up][up]I don't think English fanbase influence anything in the internal anime market. Let alone a small 4chan fan base for a 6 chapter webcomic.

She is probably just glade her manga reached overseas. I doubt she was expecting it at all.

This is extremely relevant.

I feel sorry for her...her issues with talking with people seem like they are on the level of social anxiety disorder. Then again, There Are No Therapists, so it's not like she can get help.
I'm glasses.
While it's funny to see her fail, I also feel pretty bad for her.

Jeez, though, you'd think she'd at least consider trying to make a friend on the Internet. It can't be that much different in Japan... can it?

Been keeping an eye on this since the first chapter was translated. Thought it was pretty okay.
There are none so blind as those who will not see.

I could be wrong but is there some sort of social expectation to not 'burden others' with your personal problems in Japan?
