The story for the anime collection is predicated on the Bottom-Tier Character Tomozaki gentle novel collection by author Yuuki Yaku and illustrator Fly. Published by Shogakukan’s Gagaga Bunko imprint since May 2016, the ebook collection is as much as Volume 10 as of January 18, 2022.
The official English translation of the ebook collection is being printed in North America by Yen Press. As of April 19, 2021, the English model was as much as Volume 8.

In February 2021, the manga introduced that it had ended its second half. The journal didn’t listing the manga for the subsequent month, however the closing web page of the latest chapter teased readers by stating, “Stage Clear & Continue.”

The thematic premise of the anime in all probability hits slightly too shut residence for some audiences. In the span of solely 6 episodes, Tomozaki transforms from a depressing gamer who hated the rubbish life recreation to a comparatively self-confident younger man surrounded by (largely feminine) associates who can share their very own insecurities and doubts with him.
While such a premise could look like wish-fulfillment akin to the isekai style’s OP protagonist trope, the Tomozaki anime not less than makes such a prospect appear cheap. And though Tomozaki was main an unhealthy way of life at first it readily turns into obvious he has the more healthy mindset of all his associates.
Coming from a spot of hopelessness, Tomozaki manages to embrace self-improvement whereas retaining his authenticity. By distinction, Aoi hides her pure character and makes use of manipulation to feed her unhealthy obsession with not letting anybody beat her at something. In flip, Aoi’s potential imposter syndrome feeds into Mimimi’s inferiority complicated by making her endure from 2nd place syndrome. Tama has dependency points, whereas most of the others pretend their beliefs and emotions in return for social acceptance.
The voice actor does an important job in depicting this incremental transition however the adjustments nonetheless come at anime audiences quick sufficient to trigger whiplash. Such drastic adjustments to anybody’s character feels unrealistic, however not less than his progress is balanced with struggles and failures.
And it’s good for as soon as to observe a dynamic solid somewhat than static characters who barely shift an inch of their attitudes and motivations by the top of a single season. It’s made much more pleasant by the truth that the characters are real platonic associates with no romantic curiosity, which is a stark distinction to the numerous anime with a readymade harem throwing itself on the protagonist’s ft in a contrived method supposed to pander to the very demographic the Tomozaki books criticize.
(Aaaaand a sure demographic studying this information story in all probability simply felt a large animated arrow stab them within the again. Oof!)
Of course, such speedy character improvement is nearly inevitable when adapting 3 to five books per cour is the business customary. In this case, Episodes 1 by means of 4 tailored the primary gentle novel Volume and manga chapters 1 by means of 11.
The first episode skipped the ED and the OP for the conclusion, giving extra space for the introduction to breathe. But the development nonetheless appears rushed since after Episode 1 the interior monologues from the books are condensed and sure scenes had been skipped for lack of time.
Episodes 5 by means of 8 tailored the story arcs for Mimimi and the Student Council Election Arc of sunshine novel Volume 2 and manga chapters 12 by means of 21. One of the largest omissions was a scene the place Tomozaki advised Mimimi that Aoi is superb at taking part in Attack Families/AtaFami/TackFam.
At first, Mimimi interprets the admission as Tomozaki serving to her to realize revenge for Aoi beating him at his specialty, so she’s shocked to be taught that he’s the higher participant, though he nonetheless retains his standing as the highest Tackfam participant in Japan a secret out of embarrassment (by no means thoughts the life classes).
“Thing is, she’s crushing me at life,” Tomozaki mentioned within the ebook to Mimimi. “I can’t win it doesn’t matter what I do–I can’t even think about it. Meanwhile, Aoi Hinami is the one particular person I respect as an Atafami participant, and life is her favourite stage. … And as a gamer, I need to attempt taking part in her on her stage, too. But I do know I can’t beat her but…”
Episode 9 started adapting the co-ed sleepover camp story arc that started with gentle novel Volume 3 and manga Volume 5: Chapter 22.
It’s notable that the anime’s finale briefly launched a brand new character, Tsugumi Narita aka Gumi-chan, with Japanese voice actress Fujita Akane taking part in the position. That’s one other hopeful signal for Bottom-Tier Character Tomozaki Season 2.

All in all, the finale, Bottom-Tier Character Tomozaki Episode 12, discovered a stopping level equivalent to the ending of sunshine novel Volume 3.
It’s the perfect stopping level since Tomozaki has come full circle in his relationship with Aoi, difficult her perception that true needs don’t exist. Now, Tomozaki is each the coed and the grasp, but it surely stays to be seen if he can pry off her fastidiously contrived masks.
The unhealthy information is that the manga collection remains to be ending up the summer time trip story arc from gentle novel Volume 3. Thus, manga readers will in all probability want to attend till not less than manga Volume 8 for the manga to surpass the anime’s ending.
