Unsettling Geek Comedy Manga "It’s Not My Fault That I’m Not Popular!" To Be Adapted Into Anime

Sadomasochistic pleasures of comedy of acute social unease heads to anime

There was plenty of speculation that a Gangan announcement countdown would result in news of an anime adaptation of Nico Tanigawa's web manga Watashi ga Motenai no wa Dou Kangaete mo Omaera ga Warui! aka Watamote or It’s Not My Fault That I’m Not Popular! Looks like anime watchers will in fact soon be able to enjoy the queasiness of following Kuroki Tomoko's misadventures, with an early confirmation of anime plans. 

The comedy of acute social unease follows Kuroki Tomoko, who's in for a rude awakening when she finds that the popularity and social graces she thought she had while sitting around in her underwear playing otome game/dating sims don't carry over in reality. Desperately, she tries to ensure that she hasn't turned out to be a "mojo" (gloomy, unpopular woman).

The sort of things that Watamote can spawn...

Needless to say, it's a 4chan favorite.

The manga can be read online on Gangan's site (in Japanese)
