Plot Synopsis via Amazon:

When Narumi, an office lady who hides the fact that she is a yaoi fangirl, changes jobs, she is reunited with Hirotaka, her childhood friend who is attractive and skilled but is a hardcore gaming otaku. They decide to start dating for now, but being otaku, both of them are awkward so a serious romantic relationship is rather difficult for them…

The original manga source material for Wotakoi: Love is Hard for Otaku is also available to read by publisher Kodansha Comics.
