    Oh, How I Can't Stand You!
    I should have known from the start that this wasn't for me. I know that a lot of people enjoyed it so I tried to prevail and watch the entire series. Well, I did successfully complete the series, but my opinion barely changed from start to finish. I did feel sympathy especially for the main character and found the "not so blissful side of high school life" very interesting. However, nothing was ...

    Slice of life with a dose of reality
    Being a fan of slice of life anime series, I often find many of them to be somewhat contrary to the genre by often being set in very idyllic or fantastic settings and circumstance or with unbelievable characters. Watamote on the other hand is a refreshing take on the genre and oftentimes subverts it's viewers expectations. In this anime you have Tomoko Kuroki, an extremely shy and socially awkward ...

  • Definitely a hit or miss series.
    Just reading what this anime/manga is about should give you a clear hint...
    Either you love it or you hate it.
    I think it has to do alot with our own experiences in school and growing up and it's definitely a major boost if you can associate yourself with the main character Tomoko.

    I'm not ashamed to say that I was somewhat of an introvert in my mid teens, I still find myself ...

    Cringingly Hilarious.
    This Anime can definitely be difficult to watch at times but is most certainly worth it. I absolutely love how much effort Tomoko puts into trying to be popular. One of the things I also love about this Anime is how they point out how "Typical" or "Cliche" some girls can be. Overall this Anime makes you cringe & laugh all at the same time.

  • The first anime I have ever watched.
    Hilariously mean spirited dark humor with occasional feels.

    Tomoko, The main character is an exetremely socially awkward twit. To the point were almost anything she says to anyone other than her family hilariously cringe worthy. The writers like to put her in all sorts of awkward situations. Sometimes they go overboard to the point where rather than laughing you just plain pity her. But they ...

    A great anime that deserves a great ending!
    I forget how I stumbled across this anime, but it's the second one I ever saw. If the first (Future Diary) wasn't enough to convince me of anime's supremacy over American animation, this one has. Been hooked ever since...

    Watamote must get a second season! I just want to give this girl a hug :-(

    A more serious review:
    Many other reviews I have seen of Watamote seem to convey a ...

  • I enjoyed this series
    I usually do not watch many anime like this one but it was so funny as well as interesting that I had to finish it. This is a miscellaneous anime that anyone can enjoy. I hope there is a season 2 lol. I can't wait to see what happens next if they make a season 2.

  • Interesting to say the least
    This anime takes different approach than most by creating a high-school student who actually has many social problems. Although a bit over the top at times it does do a pretty good job of depicting an actual socially awkward teen going threw struggles.You get to see a lot of development and also a lot of non development in the same show at the same time.It is hilarious and overall a good watch, ...

  • Not as Cringy as You'd Think!
    I originally watched this because a bunch of people told me how weird and messed up and cringy it is. As I watched and got further along in the episodes, I could agree that there are some really, really messed up and cringy parts, but it's not as bad as everyone makes it out to be. You see all these people saying "Oh, I had to pause it and take a break. She's so cringy."

    Well, I never had to ...

    Seriously depressing
    This show gives you a glimpse into the life of a high school girl stricken with severe social anxiety. She can't even talk to people aside from her family and one friend from middle school. She awkwardly stumbles through every social interaction and spends all her free time playing dating sim games and loathing her fellow classmates. This anime is just heart-breaking. You spend the whole show ...
