About Can an Otaku Like Me Really Be an Idol? Manga

Can an Otaku Like Me Really Be an Idol? manga features story and art by Wacoco Waco.

Takumi is an otaku, or pop-culture nerd, who specializes in pop-idol bands. He's well-known online for his devotion and passion. That same passion also gets him in a bit of trouble, now and then, as it makes him an easy target for macho bullies who feel pop-idols may not be for men.

Misaki is one of those guys who looks down on otaku. But he has a bit of a secret--he also likes idols. When Takumi uncovers Misaki's secret, will Misaki embrace the otaku world, and does Takumi have what it takes to be Misaki's idol?

Idol Wet Dreams

by -

From the description I thought this was just going to be a cute one-off BL title, so I grabbed it on sale and I was kinda right. It's cute, and it's one and done. Just heed that mature rating, bc this one is explicit sex in every chapter. It's not every page, but definitely every chapter. Other than that, it's mostly just silly, as weird porn ideas can be, and has a random one-shot at the end of the volume too.

A feel-good sex comedy of errors

by -

It must be said that of the three books from Kuma I've read so far, this is undoubtedly the smuttiest. There are several uncensored, exceedingly well drawn sex scenes, which, combined with the crossdressing and preposterous concept (for yaoi, anyway) that the shorter, cuter partner is the top, makes it clear this is targeted at a, shall we say, more debauched demographic.


It must also be said that beneath the neotenous, kawaii decadence, there is a really sweet story of self-acceptance, perseverance, and the power of love and friendship. In these ways and others, it's reminiscent of genre great Go For It, Nakamura!, and while not as good as that book, this is still a lovely ride. Its themes are sure to resonate with anyone who's felt weird or unlovable, and for that it's worth a read. But unlike Nakamura, you may need a fainting couch handy.

Love it Love it Love it!


I absolutely LOVE this manga. I also love Kuma products because they have such nice paper (lol). This story is super cute and it even has a little bit of smut!
Definitely a must-buy if you want a BL to make you smile.
