I wrote my own "Light Novel" after all of these years! A Rom-Com filled with fluff!

Hey everyone! I'm new here, but I wanted to let you all know about the story I've been working on for the past couple of months!

I started getting into reading LN's after all of these unsatisfying 13 episode anime seasons weren't cutting it for me and then turned to manga at first, but even some of those ended up being promotion material for LN's. (*Cough* "When Hikaru Left the Earth *Cough*)

One night before Fall Semester began for college, I fondly remember staying up really late until like 4 in the morning marathoning Nozaki-kun and one skit in particular stood out to me. The scene where Nozaki plays a visual novel game for research and sympathizes with the generic MC-kun's best friend who supports the player without getting anything in return. These characters appear in harems all the time where they try to set up flags for the dense MC, like Shu from Nisekoi and I thought it would be really interesting to integrate that concept as the basis for my novel!



"My Best Friend is Dense Harem Main Character-kun, But Why am I the Heroine?!" is a weird, but fluffy and heartwarming slice-of-life romantic comedy story about a generic dense MC-kun named Hiro and his best friend Tomo who becomes the lead heroine after one fateful afternoon! I've been lurking this place for quite some time and I hope that you guys can enjoy reading my humble little story! It's only the first volume with over 63k words and 240 pages, but I'll try my hardest to keep writing more!

WARNING: If gender-bender bothers you then I'd advise you to stay away from this one!

Expired: I̶t̶'̶s̶ ̶F̶R̶E̶E̶ ̶u̶n̶t̶i̶l̶ ̶T̶O̶M̶O̶R̶R̶O̶W̶!̶ ̶(̶7̶/̶6̶/̶1̶8̶)̶ ̶

Please feel free to share your thoughts, fellow readers!

UPDATE: Fixed some typo's and lines that bothered me! Added the volume number into the title! The changes went up faster than I anticipated. Thanks for your support guys!

UPDATE#2 (9/10/18): Reread for the gazillionth time since I'm currently in the process of outlining Volume 2! Lots of cleanup and rephrasing and even minor dialogue added to smooth some scenes! Your reading experience will certainty be better than ever with this updated version! Very pleased with the end product and I'll try my best to get this update properly submitted for preexisting customers, though there appears to be some hurdles when it comes to this sort of thing...

UPDATE#3 (9/29/18): The new cover!!! It's HERE!

News in the land of Mofujin!

I have once again returned with great news for ze common people!

First, I finished writing another story! I, Who Fell in Love with the Other You: Wish -> This one's a short standalone 26k word Rom-Com about a young man's special first love that didn't go as he had expected. The heroine is a mysterious beauty named Sakuya Aoyama who is an art prodigy that has taken the world by storm! It's currently only $0.99 and free on Amazon Unlimited so if the sample you can access by clicking the "Look Inside" Cover button interests you, consider giving the rest of it a try!

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07FYZNFLJ

In addition, I have officially started writing my own Blog on GoodReads so that I can connect with you guys and keep you up to date with my latest exploits and thoughts!
https://www.goodreads.com/author/sho...o_Mofujin/blog

Honestly, it's thanks to wonderful communities like this that I gave this whole novel writing thing a shot in the first place. I'm so darn grateful that there are people out there willing to read my small stories and I will keep giving it my all! Seeing a lot more than one or two people buy a copy of my debut novel made me more teary-eyed than Jun Maeda's rollercoaster rides... Once again, thank you so very much for your support and I hope to not only live up to, but exceed your appreciated expectations with time and persistence!

Currently writing a new fluffy stand-alone Rom-Com story with a very unique supernatural main heroine! Look forward to it later this Month!

I'm back with a new release!

Hi there, readers! The first part of my new paranormal romantic comedy series just came out!

My Apartment Is Haunted by the Ghost of My Dead Childhood Best Friend Who Likes Me! is a story about a young man named Haruto Igarashi who is tormented by the loss of his childhood best friend: a girl named Aiga Kato who passed away nearly a decade ago in a car accident. After another failed mixer set up by his other childhood friend, he returns to his small cramped apartment feeling more depressed than ever. When he opens the door, things are not as they should be. The lights in the living room and kitchen are on despite the fact that he remembers leaving them off before heading to work. Also, there is a delicious home-cooked meal sizzling on top of his stove. “This too must be a result of working too many over-time shifts” he tries to justify as the reason behind these bizarre occurrences. Suddenly, someone steps out of the bathroom and speaks to him. “Long time no see, Haru! I really really missed you, ya know? Huuum huum!~” she says to him. It is his old friend Aiga Kato, but… why the heck is she wearing a bridal dress, floating in the air and her body is transparent?! “Well that’s cuz I’m a ghost, silly!!!” she answers him with overflowing enthusiasm.

It is a fluffy, heartwarming and silly story about the reunion of two dear childhood friends: he who cannot forget the past, and she who doesn’t want to leave his side. I highly recommend checking it out, it supports Kindle Unlimited and it’s only one dollar!



Read it here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07GM5QXKX

I actually drew the cover from scratch this time! I still have ways to go before I can get to where I want to be, but I'll keep trying my hardest!

Read more at my blog, if you are interested! See how rough that drawing started out and be amazed!

For the past week or so, I searched for an artist who could be the Ponkan8 of my project! Well not only did I find such a capable person to serve as official artist of my light novel series, but they redid the artwork for volume 1's cover and I couldn't be any more pleased with the result! See for yourself, read more about it on my blog and maybe give the novel a chance if you're interested! Thank you guys for your support, you have been amazing!

I know I shouldn't judge a story by its cover. But this one definitely drags me in more than a Comipo one. I'll give it a shot.

Wow, thank you so much! It's an honor to have my light novel read by you, your web novel series is great and I love how you've stuck with it after all of these years!

Also, I completely agree with your sentiment about Comipo!

I couldn't agree with you more! Thank you so much for giving my novel a chance even with that pitiful cover I drew, it means a lot! I've already submitted a request so that everyone who owns it can update to the new cover, but we'll see if it passes! Fingers crossed!

UPDATE: They approved it this morning, wahoo!~
Note that if it doesn't change the cover in your library, the book itself will still be updated when you click it, but you might have to clear your cache to see it on your library!
