Fujita’s Wotaku ni Koi wa Muzukashii (It’s Difficult to Love an Otaku) has been garnering a handful of award nominations this year, including Best General Manga at the 41st Kodansha Manga Awards. An anime adaptation was announced earlier this year.
The series focuses on the awkward romances between adult otaku in the workforce. Narumi Momose is a hardcore fujoshi and Hirotaka Nifuji is a gamer. The pair hasn’t seen each other since middle school, but are shocked to learn that they are co-workers at the same company. A night of drinking leads to a revelation of their hobbies, and they decide to start dating. However, their tendencies lead to very awkward moments with their fellow otaku co-workers.
