Synopsis

Kuroki Tomoko is a super popular, high school girl, who has had 50 years of dating experience, and 100 boys... in the Otome game world. In the real world, she is a 15-year-old shut in, who has all of the qualities of a "mojo" (喪女, a gloomy or unpopular woman).

However, when school isn't going as she expected, and she isn't as popular as she had thought she was, she takes a look at herself in the mirror for the first time in a few years, and has some shocking revelations...

Watashi ga Motenai no wa Dou Kangaetemo Omaera ga Warui!, (Shortened to Watashi ga Motenai for the sake of reviewing), is a manga about an antisocial girl named Tomoko Kuroki whose only desire is to cut loose of her shut in ways and become popular so she can get a boyfriend,but that's easier said than done... Especially when you're too socially awkward to talk to a boy, let alone an actual human being.

Now on the surface this manga doesn't look remotely entertaining but it slowly,but surely, sucks you into it and days later you'll find yourself thinking "Gee, I wonder how she's going to embarrass read more

When it comes to popularity and being the talk of the student body, I wouldn't know, but when it comes to anime, video games and manga, then hey, conversation topics can never end, Watashi ga Motenai no wa Dou Kangaetemo Omaerea ga Warui features a high school girl who's both of those characteristics, even though the former is a delusion of embarrassing proportions.
The series revolves around a shut in girl who's never actually had social interactions with anyone (Save for her friend in middle school and occasional reply when someone asks or need something from her), Kuroki Tomoko (Think of her as Konata from read more

Watashi ga Motenai no wa Dou Kangaete mo Omaera ga Warui! (or Watamote for short) is a slice of life anime about a high school girl named Tomoko Kuroki. If you think that you're socially awkward, wait until you read the story of Tomoko. She has such a hard time with even the most basic conversations that she almost brings herself to vomiting. She praises her skill with romance games as being equal to real-life experience yet she can't even say two words to people.

Tomoko spends the duration of the story trying different quirky things that are supposed to help her make friends but read more

Its one great manga. It strays from the "put lovers everywhere" attitude most manga are appealing to and instead centers on the single goal of making the life of a single girl one major hell on earth. A refresh is that finally the fail is not on the boy, but on the girl depicted. Certainly not the most original take ever published on manga but well executed nonetheless.

One thing of note however is that this manga could benefit of a different format. Since the reader already knows that Tomoko is a major screw up it gets tiring to read only the small details. There are read more

Recommendations

Manga: Onanie Master Kurosawa
Both main characters have limited contact with others and most of the dialogue takes place in the main character's head.

In Onani Master Kurosawa the main character wants to be left alone. While in "It's My Fault I'm Not Popular" the main character strives to popular but lacks even the most basic social skills.

Manga: Naze Toudouin Seiya 16-sai wa Kanojo ga Dekinai no ka?
Being popular, getting a girlfriend..it's all a troublesome sea of relationships. In NazeToudouin, the MC has gone his whole life without a girlfriend and the manga portrays his attempts at getting one, in WataMote, instead of a girlfriend, she's just trying to be popular. Both protagonists want to create relationships with other people, and their stories show their painful struggles. 
reportRecommended by -Kazu
Manga: Nazo no Kanojo X
Both main characters kind of look the same at a distance but the difference is that in one series the girl is ugly while in the other the girl is hot (But both characters still look cute) . Both characters are kind of weird and have a rather awkward social life.

Both series also share a similar setting and are both pretty funny and amusing because of the unexpected events that happen

Manga: Tonari no Seki-kun
They tell the everyday life of a girl through inner monologues about her strange situations in school.  
reportRecommended by BlindNoldor
Manga: Saikyou Densetsu Kurosawa
Both talk about people who despairingly want to fit in the society.While Kurosawa wants to be accepted by his workmates, Kuroki wants to be accepted not only by his classmates as a colleague, but as a girl and even as a normal person. Both mangas are very uncomfortable, and show us how far people go, just to fight loneliness and be accepted. 
reportRecommended by Trionout
Manga: Choku!
Both series are by the same author and have similar audiences in mind. Plus in both stories the main character's a quirky girl that you can't help but like, and who also adds quite a bit of humor to the mix.
