hahaha I can't wait to see how the anime will be like
Yeah, it was nice =03. Makes you want to get your hopes up, that's for sure. It seems that senpai is kinda like how I would depict Tomoko at her grad. Maybe he's just like her in terms of his social environment. Either way, I hope things get a little better for her in this coming year.

Oh yeah, dat fox fur ...

I wish this series did "Moments Later" epilogues like Genshiken, cause I can just imagine the moment when the senpai's on his way home and he suddenly realizes he should've asked Tomoko for her number.

Well Chapter 37 is pretty clearly where the anime's going to end. If they include the two Christmas specials they have enough material to do 13 episodes of three chapters each.

Now if only they'd put out a PV so we can hear what Mokocchi sounds like.

I guess this chapter explains why Tomoko always wears a long skirt.

Really...you just noticed this now? It's been shown several times that she's a real selfish and self-centred bitch and that she kinda deserves many of the bad things that happen.

What she is is a male harem protag in a female body... that's all I can see it as.

Not even in the least, male harem protags are usually nice and unselfish people that worry about others even if they are a bit awkward (just look at Rito from To-Love-Ru for example) and even the more pervy ones are also good at heart. Tomoko has been shown to be incredibly selfish and self-centred, she only really cares about others when it affects her or how people look at her. A good example was when she forgot to mail her brother's application, when she was found out she tried to make up for it but not because she felt sorry for it as was evident the moment he told her it was al right and she turned bitchy again.

She is really nothing like most (if not all) male harem protags.

If you take Shinji Haruyuki Utsumi and many others and take away the character growth just going with what you have at the beginning of the series and stuff them in a girl... you'd get something like Tomoko. Yes most of those characters grew into something much better (except shinji imo) but at the beginning they were all self centered loseres that blamed most of their problems on the world around them. I just see Tomoko as having all of the worst problems of a harem protagonist piled into one female character.

Utsumi is a very kind person even since the beginning, he worries quite a bit about others.
Haruyuki was the type to worry about others but not get involved due to being awkward.
Shinji...isn't even a harem protag...and it's freaking Evangelion for God's sakes...

Any more examples of harem protags that start out selfish and self-centred?
Mind you I said "most (if not all)" meaning there might be exceptions but they are so rare that's not a trait you can apply to the term Harem Protag.

I don't recall her ever trying to humiliate anyone like she does Komiyama here.

I don't think her intention was to directly humiliate anyone, rather she just wanted to preserve her image.

Why does ANN insist upon calling it, "No Matter How I Look at It, It's You Guys' Fault I'm Not Popular!" Do they just want to be literal? Do they not want to endorse piracy by using the scanlation title? Either way, there are better ways to do it than "You Guys' Fault," which isn't even proper English.

Keima of TWGOK: and he still is for the most part. Granted he doesn't want to be a harem lead ... unless it is in games.

Ataru of Urusei Yatsura: technicly a harem lead with almost no redeming qualities.

Ranma of Ranma 1/2: prideful jerk.

the Protag of pretty much any of the animated works of overflow (summer days, school days, ect): well you know how well those end.

Keima, like you said, didn't want to be a harem lead...plus if he saw someone in real trouble he'd help out.

Ataru...I'll give you that one...

Ranma's a cocky prick...but he's a good prick at heart.

School Days is based on a VN...the anime gave one version (and actually mixed in like 3 of the bad endings in 1) but in the VN many versions of Makoto aren't that bad and some of the situations he's put on aren't easy to handle.

Fact of the matter is, Harem protags that are purely selfish and self-centred with no redeeming features (like Tomoko) are in the extreme minority.

I'm not sure how I feel about chapter 39 -- it's either a major advancement for Mokocchi, or the most embarrassing thing she's done yet. And quite possibly it's both at the same time.

Come on now, she's done more embarrassing things...not things that many people witnessed but still.
