    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 ...

  • 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 ...

    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 ...

    Only for the truly socially awkward
    First off this show is probably not for you because of it's extreme cringeworthy. Constantly trying to become popular and make friends to no avail. However if have or currently are going through a similar experience at school, you can find this show highly relatable. While the show does have a few female centric problems, both male and female who have a hard time talking to people and making ...

    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.
