Fujoshi Rumi (妄想少女オタク系?, Mōsō Shōjo Otaku-kei, lit. Geeky Girl Obsession) is a Japanese seinen manga series written and illustrated by manga author Natsumi Konjoh (紺條夏生?, Konjō Natsumi).

Plot[edit]

The series is a comedic romance between two high-school fujoshi and the boys who fall in love with them; much of the humor comes from parodies of stereotypical fujoshi behavior and other otaku topics, and a large number of pop culture references.

Release[edit]

It was first serialized in Japan on April 12, 2006 in Futabasha's seinen manga magazine Comic High!. The series has been licensed in the United States by Media Blasters.[1] It was adapted into a live action drama in 2007.[2] The series is currently available in English in digital format from JManga under the title Otaku-Type Delusion Girl.[3] It has been released in French by Bamboo Edition's Doki-Doki imprint under the title Otaku Girls.

Reception[edit]

The Media Blasters translation of Fujoshi Rumi released to mixed positive reviews, with Anime News Network giving the first two volumes an overall B-, stating "There are a number of typos in the first volume, and several text boxes and balloons are missing words in the second. ... Even so, Fujoshi Rumi is without a doubt one of Media Blasters' best manga releases to date and far and away the best in quite a long time."[4] Pop Culture Shock also reviewed the first two volumes, praising the series' humor, translation notes, and pop culture references.[5] Sequential Tart called the series a "fan-friendly little bubble of fictional high school life".[6]
