Publishers in Japan usually try to promote their latest releases by including blurbs from famous authors, however this is the first time that infamous internet organism 4Chan was used as part of a blurb.

The latest release of the manga “It’s Not My Fault I’m Not Popular” (私がモテないのはどう考えてもお前らが悪い! ), a blurb on one corner of the book reads “海外の2ちゃん的な掲示板で大人気!!”, literally “A hit on the overseas version of 2Chan!!” — AKA 4Chan.

4Chan members have released scanlated versions of “It’s Not My Fault I’m Not Popular”, which led to the series’ popularity on the site.
