If you like your dark comedies with a huge side of schadenfreude, look no further. Both of these manga are about complete losers on a quest for self-improvement... and it isn't going so well.

That is, when the girl isn’t being tsundere or kicking the boy in the face for his mistakes!
Dating sim master Keima Katsuragi wants nothing more than to immerse himself in the 2D world, chasing digital girlfriends.

Now, lest the explosive collar around his neck detonate, Keima must convince various girls to fall in love with him in order to scare out the souls hiding in their hearts.
I don't know about others, but I think these two series share a lot of similarities. They are both about a Student who is unpopular and has spent most of their time playing Dating Games. One is forced to try and make girls love him and just wants to be alone while the other is triyng their hardest to get a boyfriend and doesn't want to be alone. I think if you enjoyed one of these series you should at least give the other a try.
