"It’s Not My Fault That I’m Not Popular" Anime Character Designs Revealed
Social disaster hits anime in July
There's still very little information about the July anime adaptation of Nico Tanigawa's otaku cringe-comedy Watashi ga Motenai no wa Dou Kangaete mo Omaera ga Warui! aka Watamote or It’s Not My Fault That I’m Not Popular! However, after plenty of fan created/fake character design sheets for the anime, the real ones have finally been revealed.
Tomoko Kuroki - a girl who comes to the rude awakening that her late, sweaty nights of playing otome games haven't prepared her to make friends in highschool.
Tomoki Kuroki - Tomoko's junior highschool age younger brother, who is a lot less sympathetic to her problems and way of thinking than she assumes. Anime character description suggests that he has a nicer side under his bruskness.
Yū Naruse - Tomoko's only friend. They shared otaku interests in middle school, and while Yu-chan hasn't entirely abandoned them, she has dyed her hair, found a boyfriend and become popular.
Who do you think will be voicing the characters? Beyond that... who do you think is actually making this anime?
