  • Very Enjoyable Series!
    Honestly, I've heard a lot of people ripping on this series saying that it is bad. I enjoyed every second of it. I was laughing a lot throughout the series. I would recommend watching this for yourself as opposed to just reading reviews, though. There will always be people like me who enjoy a series that takes a risky direction like this, and there will also always be those who don't like series' ...

  • Painfully true to myself at times
    The best metaphor to describe this series would have to be comparing it to an endurance test of sorts watching Tomoko fail again, and again each time you cringe harder than the last, just when you think she'll finally get through a day without an embarrassing mishap she comes up with a new plan that blows up in her face. The series follows Tomoko Kuroki an otaku who becomes concerned that after ...

  • Painful yet relatable
    This show hurt in many personal ways. I think everyone has felt these things in some ways at some time, but this show dredged all those old failures and feelings up and produced cringes that broke space-time. If you can't stand feelings of embarrassment, or shame this is not the show for you.

    Follow this extremely awkward teen on her quest to make friends. Laugh, cry, stare at a corner, pause ...

    If I write a review, will that make me popular?
    Slice of life anime are a dime a dozen. It can be written down to a formulaic science at this point. Gather a few girls with brightly coloured hair and squeaky voices, and allow hilarity to ensue.
    Watamote changes all of this by placing the entire show on the back of a single character: high school freshman and oddball Tomoko Kuroki. For this show to succeed, Tomoko needed to be a good character ...

  • One of the Most Realistic Portrayals of Extreme Social Anxiety
    Not only is it one of the most realistic portrayals of extreme social anxiety disorders, but it's also an extremely funny anime/manga!

    This is one of my favorite anime. It's freaking hilarious.

    Some people may criticize it because "the main character doesn't grow/change" over the course of the series.... but that's part of the comedy of the whole thing. She is stuck in this anxiety, and this ...

  • Awkward Yet Hilarious
    Watamote 「ワタモテ」 really put me in good spirits and made me grin. 9/10 ミ☆

    Plot
    Watamote is a tale which basically follows geeky anime-loving Tomoko Kuroki and her struggle, as the title suggests, of not fitting into the crowd at school and having very few friends or anyone to talk to. So, through the series, she tries to perfect herself so others may see her in a new light,
    ...

  • A unique story definitely a decent watch
    The story follows the life of a socially dysfunctional high school girl “Tomoko” suffering from severe social anxiety as she tries to be popular or at least normal.

    Most of the gags involve Tomoko trying to elevate her social status but failing miserably every time, hilarity ensues for sure but is always at the cost of our poor little protagonist and we are often left with a feeling of ...

  • You only wish she had friends!
    They story is really in-depth on the one main character. All the way through you wish she Would have a friend or be a bit more "normal" and "social" . As it gets later on you realize that she does have friends but in her own way. This story portrays many other people who may spend a lot of time gaming or watching anime. And could relate to her.
    It was a fun watch with its humor and embarrassing ...

  • A lot of fun for those that remember HS
    I really enjoyed this anime, the cute little ugly girl trying so hard to redefine herself. She has a really perverted mind like I did back then and there is a lot of hilarious scenes. I highly recommend this to those that remember having a really horseshit time in high school.

    Nice to get a laugh out of all that misery, years later. It gets better kids.
