The author has never been on 4chan. All the communication is all been done through her Twitter account.

Look! It has it's own TV Tropes page.

And look what i found in the Germans Love David Hasselhoff entry.

*The manga has rapidly gained a fanbase outside of Japan via /a/ — mainly out of empathy.
**It has a fanbase on /v/ as well, despite their irrational hatred of anything that can be somehow traced back to Japan. The cover of the first volume even acknowledges the foreign fanbase.

It's part of the editor job to check what sort of public response the works have at some level. What most likely happened was that at one point 2ch pointed out that 4ch totally loved this one, and thus the editor checked a little more and then informed the author, thus she spoke about it on twitter.

BTW, I recently picked this up, I was waiting for several chapters to gather as to read many of them in one go; the current fuss about the series was a good excuse to finally devour what's available of Kuroki (゚∇゚) I feel like the verdict on the story is really going to depend on if Kuroki can somewhat see a future with a happy ending or not. And considering her own situation, having a cool boyfriend and whatnot is unnecessary; a more positive prospect for her would be one where she doesn't totally shake at the prospect of talking with someone else and where she feels happier with herself (even if she is kept as a mojo).

So the marketing strategy for the series is that she's popular with American pirates? Though given those photos of bookstore displays, I'm guessing she's not doing too badly in Japan, either.

Too bad Choku never caught on like this and is only one quarter scanslated.

Yeah, that always will be unfortunate, but at least this one is getting somewhere.

I'm currently reading the manga, but the story, plot and impression reminds me more of Lucky Star/B Gata H Kei than The World God Only Knows because the main protagonist is trying to be feminine and pretty.

I'm pretty sure I know what happens after this chapter.
Spoiler for I'm sure it was this:


I tend to feel bad when Kuroki tries these... complex ideas in getting a friend, but just utterly fails =0(.

Just read ch15... uh oh its so awkwardly painful to read. Tomoko's cousin knows she was lying and hates her now. Lying is a bad idea if you're awkward as hell.

Damn, they just LOVE pulling the rug from under your feet every chapter, don't they ? I should expect it by now, but they get me every time. I'm just an optimist at heart =03.

wahahahaha
every one here seem to harbor sympathy to the unpopular-chan and feel depressed
look like no one spot the lesson here
...hm? yeah, the clue is: the audience this series intended for

but it's good too I think, since Sympathy is not something that common to found nowadays
