    If You've ever felt rejected, and a bit...Misanthropic...WATAMOTE is for You!
    In the entire History of Anime, little else has come even somewhat as close to defining and guiding Us through the Life of a TRUE Otaku. As many have said, WATAMOTE may not be for Everyone. Before I first watched it Myself, I heard nothing but rather negative - and if She was a real Person, I'd try My best to keep Tomoko Kuroki...the, well...I don't know if I can say Protagonist, but at least the ...

    This isn't everyone's cup of tea, but's it's worth a taste.
    If you don't know anything about Watamote, here's a few things you should need to know: Watamote is about first year high school student named Tomoko. She loves visual novels, manga, and staying up all night on the computer; She's the typical otaku. The most important thing is that Tomoko is very introverted. Although she does her best to interact with people, thinking it will magically make her ...

    A refreshing - or highly disturbing - take on Otaku
    Warning: This show may trigger extreme second hand embarrassment, and sympathy, in those who play dating sims, those who read manga, those who have difficulty communicating in "Reality" and those whose life choices made school life a torment for them. WATAMOTE reminds us of a time when our escapes from reality were our reality - and paints a scarily realistic picture of a path we ...

    Rooting for Someone Who'll Never Win
    While not a spectacular anime, Watamote is an incredibly interesting story of a girl who enters high school in hopes of becoming popular. Tomoko is by no means hero. On the outside, she is a liar, a cheater, hateful, introverted, secluded, and impossibly awkward. However, her determination and what goes through her mind to reveal her true character is what propels the show and really pulls in ...

  • Now this anime is a keeper
    Watamote, an anime about a not so popular girl living her life trying to become popular. Tomoko is just one unlucky High School Girl that has problems with being social and to deal with it, well... you should watch to find that out.. Anyway, spending time gaming, watching anime, traveling through the web, and reading mangas.. thats Tomoko, check it out really worth the drop by.

  • Got me back into anime
    After I started HS I stopped watching anime (trying to be a cool kid I guess... well that didn't work out very well).

    6 years later and this show has successfully sucked me back in... Is that a good thing or a bad thing?

    The main character is extremely relatable and the show itself is so awkward and uncomfortable that it makes it absolutely perfect <3 I love it

  • This show is what social anxiety looks like. In a good way!
    If anyone who is outgoing, proud, cool, interesting, or social ever wanted to know what goes through the mind of someone young that has social anxiety, this is what you should be watching. I can't say I know what being a teenage girl feels like, but I can honestly say, as someone who suffered from social anxiety growing up, this is an accurate depiction of the way you feel. While this show covers ...

  • Hilarious and realistic anime
    There's always a shy girl in every school/class,and I imagine they're actually like this. I know many people who can relate to being the one person who doesn't have a partner in class,and who just want to be left alone most of the time (including myself). The only bad thing about this anime is I believe it's a bit extreme with her social anxiety sometimes,it can be funny at times,but also a tad ...

  • A sad laugh and look at a lonely person
    To those of us who can relate to Tomoko, this show is a tragically sad but refreshingly funny reminder of who we are. Those that do not relate to her will most likely be confused or offended. Which is good, you probably lead a carefree life, so the show is not really for you. WATAMOTE explores a character that is practically real. There needs to be more shows like this. Shows that make you want ...
