Having conquered the world and won hundreds of boyfriends (in her collection of "otome games"), Tomoko Kuroki looks to make a grand debut in high school and become one of the most popular students ever. Unfortunately, her time spent with anime, manga and video games has alienated her from the world, turning even the most simple social interaction into a Herculean trial. The story follows Tomoko and her small attempts to become a better person, when she isn't sabotaging herself or blaming her loneliness on other people.


  • Tomoko Kuroki: The protagonist of the series who goes to strange lengths to avoid talking to people while also hoping that someone will come to her. Incredibly self-conscious about everything, incredibly perverted, and slightly deranged after spending most of her time with popular media instead of people.
  • Tomoki Kuroki: Tomoko's younger brother. Unlike his sister, Tomoki is actually a fairly normal boy when it comes to social situations, and Tomoko even comes to him for advice or support on occasion.
  • Mrs. Kuroki: Tomoko's mother, shows up occasionally to badger Tomoko into doing some work around the house.
  • Yū Naruse: Tomoko's only real friend from middle school who changed her looks a bit and now has a boyfriend. Tomoko swings between having perverted thoughts about her and seeking her help.
