  • Exposed the Scary Reality of Being Otaku
    This show conveys the reality of an otaku highschool girl, the protagonist, Tomoko Kuroki. She awkwardly shows her way of life as essentially an embarrassment, doing things many of us also are guilty of such as reading manga, playing dating simulators, staying on the computer all day and night, and desiring to be socially fluent while undeniably failing over and over again. She lives a life of ...

  • Funny, unique, clever
    Funny in a dark way Tomoko is hilarious. Funny in its referencing of other anime. Unbelievable in its humor, can sometimes make you laugh so hard you will cry or you will not be able to stop. Has a unique atmosphere, unexpected moments. Clever in the way the flashbacks are used.

  • Humorously painful. Painfully humorous.
    About a third of the time, I was laughing my ass off. For the other two thirds, I was cringing so hard I felt like I was going to implode.

    I think a lot of people who watch this show (myself included) will identify with Tomoko to some extent, and it's refreshing to see someone even more socially inept than we are.

    There is definitely character progression over the course of the series, and I ...

  • The Best Anime I have EVER Watched
    This anime might not be something that everyone loves, but I did. It is such a different anime, but in the best way possible. It basically even summed up me and my life. Watamote is one of those series you have to at least watch the first episode of. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS!

  • Now we see as if we are looking into a dark mirror
    I have no choice but to give this series a five out of five because it's so relatable. This is an accurate depiction of high school life for the awkward outcast. It's also an accurate depiction of the psyche of an eccentric otaku. The malicious thoughts, the equating real life scenerios to video games, the anti-social lifestyle. These are thems ew all (well I know me, I can't and shouldn't ...

  • Wanted Something light and funny...ended leaving with all the feels
    Discovered on reddit via r/anime_irl; thought I should check it out. Tomoko comes off as your typical otaku, so I didn't expect too much out of her initially. As the episodes progress though I started to identify with her. She is insanely "real" as a character battling her anxiety and trying to find happiness. She tackles her anxieties in a outlandish but relatable way. Often times she fails ...

  • It's you, but as a cute girl!
    Tomoko is awkward, introverted, and not very pleasant to be around. Basically, she's you. However, unlike you, she is a cute girl. Therefore, Tomoko is the perfect waifu, and WataMote is the perfect show. I especially recommend it if you've seen Umaru-Chan and were disappointed with how inaccurately it portrayed the otaku lifestyle.

  • The most relateable anime
    WataMote is an anime about a teenage girl going through a hard lonely time in high school. Her friend is more popular than her and she has problems even finding any friends. This anime is my favorite anime. There are many funny relateable moments and it will remind you of that phase you went through in school.

  • A refreshing adventure inside of an introvert mind.
    I really enjoyed Watamote.
    Tomoko is something out of the anime formula for a female character.
    An adventure inside of a introvert mind.
    The good things?
    -You cant figure out whats next. even tho is not something that will shock you, but it gets you every time with stupid situations.
    -You will Laugh.
    The bad things?
    -Too short .

  • I want to show this to everyone I know!
    Amazing show! (And the manga is still being published if you want more!) You will understand Tomoko if you've ever felt socially anxious or shy or just awkward or embarrassed! I wish I could show this to everyone one I know, partly because it's funny and great, but partly just so they'd understand what's going on in my head all the time!
