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?

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.

Great Read


This is an amazing read! First of all, even though it may not look like it this is a BL manga so that was a very welcome surprise! I also love how the uke is a massive idol fan.

A pleasant surprise, like big surprise. Plus a cute otokonoko

Wow, a lot more than I bargained for! This is definitely worth having in physical print. It’s pretty sneaky, and even had me fooled (as well as them too based on the details.) Our otokonoko is pretty cute too. If you enjoyed series like “Crossplay love” or “I think I accidentally turned my childhood friend into a girl” you’ll probably enjoy this one too, albeit this is definitely for more of an older/adult audience.
