Reception

ActiveAnime's Holly Ellingwood describes the story as being "about falling in love, running away, and facing your feelings, this is a little gem of a romance."[2] Shaenon Garrity, writing for the appendix to Manga: The Complete Guide, enjoyed the "sex-positive manga", noting that there was little angst.[3] Mania Entertainment's Danielle Van Gorder described Minami's art as "first-rate", enjoying its "sharp, assured lines, minimal shading, and plenty of detail".[4] Johanna Draper Carlson regards My Paranoid Next Door Neighbor as being "all about the sex", noting the similarities in the storyline to a romance novel where a lower-status female is pursued by a higher-status man. Carlson admired the manga's steadfastness in including sex scenes, as she regards this as being a key draw of yaoi.[5] Publisher Weekly also noted the similarities to a romance novel, and criticized the youthful appearance of the character designs. PW described the manga as having a "saturated atmosphere"..."satisfying the dedicated genre fan".[6]
