What is the plot of Uzaki-chan Wants to Hang Out?
The story revolves around a young Japanese girl named Hana Uzaki, who is excited to learn that her high school senior, Shinichi Sakurai, will be going to the same college as her. However, after watching him closely while he’s just lounging, she’s discouraged that he’s become such a loser. For his own good, Uzaki decides to take Shinichi under her wing. She plans to spend as much time with him as possible so he can get over being an introvert and stop being “intimidating” to his classmates.
Although all Uzaki wants is for Shinichi to have a fun college life, from Shinichi’s point of view, Uzaki has become this annoying nuisance that haunts him and makes his life hell with all her teasing. Will Shinichi ever convince her that he really enjoys his “loner lifestyle” or will he be won over by Uzaki’s zany charm?
