Watamote Episode #01 Anime Review

Based on the manga known in long form as No Matter How I Look at It, It’s You Guys’ Fault I’m Not Popular!, Watamote is a new series from Silver Link that’s already been picked up by Sentai Filmworks. The manga began back in 2011 by Nico Tanigawa and has been picked up for release by Yen Press and even a new spinoff series kicked off this year in anticipation of this series. When it comes to slice of life manga, they can be pretty fun if done with the right kind of hook, and Watamote certainly seems to be setting up for that as we deal with a young woman named Tomoko. She’s intent on having a great high school life, dating, being involved in things and just enjoying that aspect of her life, but as her first year has gone on, she’s ended up being very disconnected from everyone.
