  • 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 ...

  • A great, true to life story
    If you're looking for an anime where everything's sunshine and daisies, you're in the wrong place. What makes this anime so great is that it addresses a major problem that many kids face nowadays, and it's the feeling of isolation from their fellow peers. We've all at some point in our lives felt rejection, and fear it. However, I think this anime helps us embrace the fact that we can't, and ...

  • Wonderful and Original
    Watamote is hilarious and incredibly depressing at the same time. I feel like I can really relate to her and feel so sorry for her at times. I’m really looking forward to the OVA and hoping for a second season even though the 12 episodes is already perfect. One of my favorites.

    Loved by All, True Path
    What an amazing anime. It's funny, sad, touching, and it's about a super cool girl. I watched this first and then read the manga and I loved both. Don't be like me and get too attached though, because there probably wont be a second season. Also she uses Beats by Dre headphones and that pisses me off.

    The Underdog that Stays the Underdog
    Watamote's main protagonist Tomoko Kuroki is easily one of the most realized characters in anime with issues that I am sure that anyone who has had social anxiety has faced in their school life. Equal parts cringe worthy and humorous, the anime makes you sympathize and at times shake your head at Tomoko's interaction in her world and thought processes. With great animation, a wonderfully quirky ...

    Otaku's Be Ready to watch your life on the Extreme!
    For anyone who spent their school years locked away watching anime or playing video games this anime hold TONS of sad truths! But the extremes of the situations are what make the anime funny and worth the watch. I have actually began reading the manga and from what I've read the anime sticks true to it's source! I laughed and felt bad for Tomoko all at the same time! The stories were easy to ...

  • The show has some charms but is it possible to watch without guilt?
    At times the show is great and you finally think things will turn around. Your heart jumps at the thought. "YAY!" only for some disappointment or laugh. But the show gets downright depressing, and makes you think of your own escapades trying to rationalize A) do I laugh at Tomoko, B ) am I laughing at myself. As soon as I reached the second conclusion on many episodes I could not watch it. It ...

    watamote, the sad but humorous anime
    this anime is all about tomoko kuroki, a high school student who wants to find friends and be popular. i find a lot of myself it tomoko, she is an average otaku that has no friends. i wouldn't take this anime too seriously, or else you might get a little depressed.
    its a very enjoyable slice of life anime, but like most slice of life anime, it shouldn't be taken too seriously.

    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 ...
