  • This anime makes me want to take a shower.
    Never has an anime Made me feel as dirty and pathetic as this one. I feel like a insignificant piece of human trash watching it. Watamote, or as i like to call it.. (MIRROR, THE ANIME) is the most realistic deception of all of my experiences with social anxiety and loneliness i have ever seen
    I love this anime because ...

  • She's Not Supposed To Be All The Way Relatable; She's A Cautionary Tale!
    I see so many people say that they relate 100% to Tomoko. Or on the flipside, I have friends that can't stand this show for glorifying this character. Tomoko isn't supposed to represent the ever day otaku; she's a cautionary tale that slowly moves her way out of being unbearable.

    I, personally, like this show because there are things I can relate to from my dark, cringy middle school/early ...

    Watamote is an amazing cringe fest.
    I've never cringed so hard, yet laughed so much at an anime. Tomoko is awesome, and is stuck in her own little world. The awkward situations mixed with her failure to socialize in public leads to one of the best comedy animes ever. I know some won't be able to stand the cringe humor, but if you like this sort of humor, then you will love Tomoko in Watamote.

  • The Depths of Antisocial Personality Disorder and Social Anxiety
    Watamote is about a girl named Tomoko Kuroki who is in her first year of high school and an extreme loaner who dreams of being popular. In terms of the overlying plot, there is not much, it just follows her throughout her first year of high school as she tries different ways to become popular. What makes the show so good is the adult humor and the portrayal of people who are loaners. Unlike ...

    Don't watch if you're a survivor
    Extremely misogynistic series. I really wanted to like it, it started out really good because of the painfully awkward moments the character found herself in.
    But I can't support this series because of how it treated the sexual abuse of children, and how girls interact...They're still kids...
    If it weren't for the gross parts, I'd maybe vote it a 3/5. But nah.

  • Comedic Masterpiece (if you can handle the cringe)
    God, I love this show. I'm going to miss the misadventures of Tomoko.

    This show portrays the struggles of the introverted and those with social anxiety in a comedic but relatable light. If you can handle the exaggerated cringe comedy, then you should definitely watch this show. I'm assuming whoever reads this is an otaku, so you'll appreciate the anime references throughout the show, as well as ...

  • Your Mileage May Vary
    If there's one thing I can say about Watamote ( other than the fact that it has one of the longest titles I've ever had the mispleasure of trying to recite for someone ), it's that its unique brand of comedy isn't for everyone. I'd be lying if I said that all of the jokes hit 100% of the time, and I'd often find myself cringing at the situations that the main character, Tomoko Kuroki, finds ...

  • I hate cringe comedy. I LOVE this.
    WataMote walks a fine line. On the one hand, it derives much of its comedy from someone with a crippling social anxiety. On the other hand, it manages to make you sympathize with her without papering over her flaws.

    Tomoko has obvious problems. Her tragedy is that she assumes everyone else shares those problems. Her redeeming quality is that she (mostly) tries to tackle ...

    Some people Drop WATAMOTE because its too much like their own lives..
    Watching the 1st episode of Watamote, I thought to myself wow this is very depressing but also very similar to my own life.
    (Like many viewers find among themselves while watching this too)
    This Anime isn't very long but it's not very upbringing either. There were some episodes in particular that just made me feel worse about my day rather than bringing me up.
    But the ...
