Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai (????????, lit. I Don't Have Many Friends), also known as Haganai (????), is a Japanese light novel series written by Yomi Hirasaka, illustrated by Buriki, and published by Media Factory. Kodaka Hasegawa is a recent transfer student to St. Chronica's Academy, a Catholic high school. As with every other school he has ever attended, he finds it difficult to make friends there because of his naturally-blond hair (inherited from his deceased English mother) and fierce-looking eyes, which make him look threatening to his prejudiced schoolmates. One day, Kodaka accidentally comes across the equally solitary and very abrasive Yozora Mikazuki while she converses with her imaginary friend Tomo. Realizing that neither of them have any social lives, they decide that the best way to improve their situation is to form a club–the Neighbor's Club, precisely intended to make friends and learn social skills.
Feeling they don't have much to do today, Kodaka suggests everyone participate in a novel relay, in which everyone takes turns writing out a novel with Kodaka as the protagonist. Naturally, things don't go very well as each member's contribution leads to the story becoming weirder and weirder.
