Unable to sleep at night, Ganta Nakami is cranky in class and unpopular with his classmates. He discovers that the school observatory, once used by the now-defunct astronomy club, may be the perfect place for a nap—but he’s not alone. Fellow insomniac Isaki Magari is willing to share the observatory with Nakami, and a friendship between the two begins as they bond over the most unlikely of things.

TL;DR - Holy shit this is really wholesome and cute and good. There is a lot of cute and wholesome manga out there, but this one is masterful in pacing the story and character development. Characters are all lovable and relatable - you definitely get attached. I started reading this out of curiosity because I enjoyed one of the magaka's other works, Neko no Otera no Chion-san. That one was also wholesome and cute, but it was way too slow. There were a lot of chapters where nothing really happened and no relationships or character development progressed. This one keeps all the best parts of Chion - beautiful art, cuteness, subtlety, wholesome love, feelings, etc. - while addressing the problem with pacing. Super good read - if you like romance manga and/or slice of life, you won't regret reading this one.
2.5 StarsInsomniacs After School is a good start to the series, but a mid one nevertheless. It proves to have an interesting plot of two insomniacs meeting each other in a cluttered school observatory, one in which a rumor spreads about the former members of the club and the ill-fated ending they had. Still, there was nothing extraordinary about this that I found intriguing. I'm not sure if I will continue this series or not, but it was a okay read.
