Why is Nozoki Ana held in such high regard and considered a masterpiece by so many people?
Emiru and her Keikeku doori shit is the only interesting thing about it.
The story starts to drag and become really repetitive after the half-way point, the MC is generic as fuck and every girl loves him for no literally reason as he has no redeemable qualities, Emiru's backstory was kind of generic and predictable, the entire story past the half way point basically becomes generic beat for beat J-Drama, the ending is identical to Ocean waves and a million other dramas.
Is it just because Emiru and her scenes (especially the locker and closet) are hot as fuck?

It's slightly newer than other similar manga like Sundome and Onani Master, so of course people will flock to it because it took their "kinky sex story with a SERIOUS side" virginity. That, and the disastrous ending will be talked about for a very long time.
The story would have actually been much more interesting if it were from Emiru's POV.
>Cut down the length of the sex scenes.
>Get rid of the whole Madoka girlfriend arc and instead replace it with more Emiru becoming more unhinged.
You could fix a lot of the problems with the manga with an abridged version.
The ending needs a rewrite, I think it should have ended with Emiru leaving and never coming back (adding to her mystery) with the graduation and MC realizing not that he loved her sexually, but respected her as an awesome friend and the best bro he will probably ever have.
It's 7 years old.
I didn't think anyone thinks it's a masterpiece though. I remember reading it years ago and thinking that worst girl won.
Emiru is a good girl only if you are able to control her but if she were in a relationship with that betacuck mc for more than a year she'd start some metashit mindgames like sucking off her father-in-law during thanksgiving or something.
She probably still loves her oniichan more too.
MC deserved her because he was literal scum as well.
>The story would have actually been much more interesting if it were from Emiru's POV.
It would just be endless monologues of "I want to suck his cock so badly" followed by pic related during every peeking scene.
That would be far more entertaining than just watching Kido get raped every chapter by some random girl.
Imagine every sex scene getting replaced with Emiru watching from the peephole and describing it in detail while masturbating.
In a couple years they're gonna be the couple from Netoraserare, dumbass mc picked wrong.
conclusion of the manga was like a story about a guy getting addicted to heroin and struggling while trying to score a fix and then ending up happy because now he has an endless supply of heroin
The thing I loved about that part was that it was one of the few times when we saw Emiru being totally, brutally honest. And then Madoka beat the shit out of her for it like most normal people would after seeing her for what she is.
But somehow Kido thought she was doing it to "protect" him, which completely ruined the whole scene. Same with the camcorder scene. The backpedaling is just retarded.
>Same with the camcorder scene.
With half of Emiru's facial expressions being Poseidal references, I was expecting her to follow up on that character and be a manipulative bitch who was just playing games and pretending to be some other personality with Kido the whole time. The camcorder moment was beautiful and made me believe it even more, but it went nowhere. I'm almost certain the author was being held at gunpoint by the editors after the first half.
Yeah it sides with trying to humanize Emiru too much.
One of my favourite scenes is the camcorder scene because at that point you think "oh they are finally getting together" and it turns out that Emiru is just a fucking psycho who can only get off over peeping thus needs him to still fuck other girls.
I thought that was a great twist and this is why I say the manga should have continued with Emiru's descent into depravity and becoming completely unhinged.
>Yeah it sides with trying to humanize Emiru too much.
I would've been fine with that if it were done properly, like in Onani Master. The problem is that unlike Kurosawa, Emiru's character remains static and never changes, and she comes across as just generic by the time her backstory is revealed. All her "genuine" moments felt so strange that that she seemed almost bipolar. The girl Kido was fucking for ten chapters straight was not Emiru. She never properly changed nor redeemed herself to become such a character.
>The girl Kido was fucking for ten chapters straight was not Emiru. She never properly changed nor redeemed herself to become such a character.
I pretty much agree with this 100% which is also why I fucking hate that volume as well.
>held in such high regard
It's a good alternative fap material with decent storyline to hentai which is a good thing
No, they're just references to Poseidal from L-Gaim (and Sopp/Amaterasu if you read FSS, which is basically the same as L-Gaim anyway).
The author makes it pretty blatant at some points.
Man one of my dreams is to revolutionize western porn by adapting ecchi and hentai manga into live action "porn shows" with seasons and everything and Nozoki Ana is probably the one I want to do the most, too bad I have no money to start this venture.
Foxi Di as Emiru my god.
