it's amusing but i always felt so bad for her after almost every episode


same here lol! It was really hard to watch at times...

...really hard to watch at times because the show REALLY related to me. As someone who used to suffer from that same, high level of social anxiety when first getting into high school (and some to an extent at the present), this show really made me warm inside (despite the depressing social situations she went through).

Out of 5? At least a 7! Love it! Relatable, painfully awkward, and just plain great!

Just read the latest manga. Poor Tomoko being patronized by her cousin, even if she does deserve it. Remember how in the Anime she saw her cheat against a kid in a card game to show off and pretended she had a boyfriend, her cousin doesn't look up to her anymore.

I seem to recall it being VERY popular with western audiences, but not so much with Japanese crowd. I always had this gut feeling that WATAMOTE could end up being a huge cult-hit with the western crowd.

It was a very well done show in my eyes. So it's kinda puzzling why the Japanese fanbase didn't like it.

This has happened with A LOT of shows. A lot of shows that are gems over here are flops (or just a lot less popular) in Japan. It kinda sucks because we'd all love season 2's to our favorite shows.

It also makes sense that two different cultures would have different opinions on the quality of certain shows.

I give it a 9/10. And I agree with x-Cellar_Door-x, everyone just loves Tomoko xD

Really enjoyed the anime, have yet to read the manga.
Self-assuring social shut-off? Check.
Hilariously awkward situations? Check.
Best friend as direct contrast? Check.
Havent really seen anything coming close to the amount of cringe in this series, really hoping for second season someday.

Watamote is definitely in my top anime. I related to Tomoko in every episode. I was glad to see that someone made an anime dedicated to the socially awkward
