The OP and ED Songs are just Awesome. Tomoko's Face Expressions are awesome.

Absolutely love both op and anime itself, made me to must-read manga! Tomoko my 3rd best characters instant. Absolutely love those hiding from public, not socializing characters! This ep made me just to want to hug her... I think this kind of girls are Kawaii as fuuuuck

That was both funny and painful to watch! I get why Kotoko has bags under her eyes, but why does her brother have it too? Too much late night porn probably?

Wow. This honestly wasn't at all what I expected. The best way to put it is, I'm not familiar with the Manga. I choose to watch it based on the summary and thought it would be similar to other stories I watched and be simpler when it came to the plot. It's actually different, the characters are well thought out three-denominational characters personality wise, not to mention the main character is unique. And the plot... this is going to be fun, lots of fun. Now I just have to wait a week for the next episode. T^T

My word, didn't think it would be that good, can say it was definitely the most entertaining first episode this season, and felt so bad for her, being hurt like that.
I'm already having special feelings for this show.

Also, the back-scratching orgasm scene was hilarious!! XD
I also really liked the OP, best I've seen this season so far. But I'm not seeing any other characters in the OP, I'm going to be sad if no other male characters that like/interact with her are introduced.

It was a really funny episode, the OP was quite a surprise and misleading too. I absolutely love the ED.
Hope that they do more parodies like that Death Note one during her research.

So we pass from the cool? "dark knight" loner of Hachiman, to this cute? insecure and awesomely crazy loner girl... me gusta.

THAT OP. MY FAVE.
Now to make a meme just like Guren no Yumiya

dem convo skills. I can relate to that
So will this anime go TWGOK style by entering the otome world or what?

5/5

Tomoka is def cute with her awkwardness, but this ep had too much Fremdschämen for me to really enjoy it, so this is strike one.

What I DID like was how she looked positively cray cray half the time XD
I want Rambo in a mecha-suit with a laser-chainsaw gun that fires nuclear warheads, fighting the love-child of Predator, Alien, a group of Bangladeshi terrorists, and Satan. (Actually that would be a pretty sick show) - StopDropAndBowl

The OP was great.

She would be pretty cute if not for the eyes and the weird poses.
I guess I should continue reading the manga too, been ignoring it for a while.

Thank you, finally someone else that hated this besides me. Nothing about this show was funny, some parts that were edging 'dark humor' weren't humorous and just plain depressing. This show was painful to watch, how this show already has an 8.0+ score is offensive. The OP was pretty good but the same can't be said about the show.

I like this episode I guess.

I don't like the opening..

I like the comedy (I like it's humour. Can't explain why.)

Tomoko's face when she goes twin tails is creepy and kinda funny.

And does anyone here think that Tomoki resembles Staz? No? Ok..

4/5 for this episode.

I like the art style. Its done in a quite fitting way.

The OP works well even though its not an obvious fit i never imagined a calm or cutesy opening making sense for this so thats well done and seems to be like a representation of Tomokos mental state.

Gonna take a bit to get used ot her voice since at times it sounds nothing like I imagined but when she gets all quiet or down feeling more thats exactly how I imagined. @_@

The ED is cute x3

Some of the background music annoyed me. Like that 8-bit sounding thing with the wooden dowel instrument thingy. That could have been done better. I know they're going for offbeat quirky BGs but ugh.

I also felt the vibe of when she switched to depressed mode talking about killing herself was right. Nice touch with the swarm of darkness coming out but the music made me feel like her bro was only annoyed. I originally in the manga interpreted him as actually having some pity or even subtle worry in his annoyance. I think it was the music not changing that did it. Of course this is only the first episode. There are some moments in this that get kind of deep and depressive feeling for being a comedy so I hope they figure how to adapt that well without losing that feel I could sense by blanketing it in an overly comedic vibe. Thats what made the manga funny to me is switching from a semi serious vibe to just humour so it makes things somehow funnier how often the vibe changes.

Haha, this girl has some serious problem. Her distorted body image and communication problem is on the maximum level that it is quite depressing. But anyway, will continue watching. Maybe it will hook me up in the next episodes...

This show didn't make me laugh very much compared to other comedy series airing this season like Kitakubu and Servant x Service, but I really liked the main character. She's just so weird and mesmerising to watch. I can relate to the trying to be cute but failing at it thing, too.

The dialogue was excellent, as well. There's a lot of fun Japanese slang included, and the delivery was ... amazing. The social awkwardness of Tomoko was captured so well, especially in that scene where she buys the hamburger.

I'm pointing out that your being "offended" by Watamote's score is pretty laughable, as if it has actually hurt your feelings people like it.

Loved this first episode!! Been anticipating it for quite some time, and i think silver link did great with it. The contrast of the OP and ED is cool XP
AND ALL DEM CAMEOS!!! >_<
The whole mouse scrolling (death note kinda theme'd) part had me laughing XD

One of the very few series that have caught my attention in this most mediocre of seasons I can remember. The seeiyu is doing a great job in that role and the balance between humour and social commentary is pretty good too. Will watch more for sure.

To me, a big part of the manga's appeal was the cringe-worthy moments. And it gets way more extreme later on, and for me, it results in laughs.

Decent first episode. I like that main character. Reminds me of a depressed Konata. Also. "I'm Coming Soon!" lol

The atmosphere was just weird. I think that's why I liked this. Oh and her searching in google about how to be cute and such, reminds me of my time in highschool when I was grade 8 searching how to get girls lel

Compare to YahariOre, this at least I can know why she has no friend. Hachiman can speak very normally and fluent to people but this girl has social anxiety disorder.

I have to be honest, I had a good laugh but the last part was a bit harsh x_x;
She is very cute if she just act normally but I guess that would be too hard for her.

This is by far the best Anime of the season that catch my eye( other is just meh...). Definitely gonna continue watch =)

I'm actually really liking the VA for her and the way they make silly things over-dramatic as well.

Anyways great start.

Totally did not expect that OP. I always thought the song from the PV would be the OP. That aside, ED is really cute.

I can't remember if "I'M COMING!!!!!!" was in the manga, but the good thing about TV adaptations imo are scenes which are funnier when animated.

just finished it, and a quick skim through the comments here left me scratching my head in confusion; had to check to make sure i was in the right thread. To each his own, but this is just not my cup of tea at all. No idea what about this show is actually funny.

you're not alone. I wouldn't say it's offensive that the show is already rated an 8... it's just that this is MAL; working as intended :p besides, it won't be long before there are 1 ep. reviews giving it a 10 and claiming it's the most amazing anime ever

Whoa, this was a lot better than I had expected. The OP is freaking AMAZING! I didn't expect a metal-type OP for a slice-of-life kind of anime like this. Absolutely love it! I knew the female vocalist sounded oddly familiar since it Konomi Suzuki. :D

I feel so sorry for Tomoko. She just wants to get popular but she has been a shut-in for so long and has trouble talking to strangers. I laughed so hard throughout the entire episode. Tomoko's ugly faces were hilarious. Tomoko has a really nice brother at least; Tomoki. Tomoki is even voiced by Kyousuke's VA. xD Dat life counseling. :P I also loved that Death Note reference with the dramatic mouse clicking. ED was really nice and funny. Kudos to Izumi Kitta, her voice fits Tomoko so perfectly. :) Definitely one of the best first episodes this season. Looking forward to more Watamote.

DAT OP. great one.

the character style seemed like a mix between dansai bunri no cirme edge and danshi koukousei no nichijou ôo but i may be the only one who thought that.

well, it did have some funny scenes, but all in all i have seriously no idea what to think about this show. the faces creeped me out a bit tbh, but it sounded kind of cute when the mc was speaking with this shy voice. i don't even know what the storyline will be. will she figure out that everyone's beatitful and get some self-esteem/overcome that shyness? or will this anime be about finding friends? or will she turn into a pretty girl at the end? i have no clue at all.

I think you mean the bags under her eyes? Their purple and blue and show that they get next to no sleep at all (which is why their mother doesn't have it).


I absolutely love this so far, so many amazing manga moments I can't wait until they animate.
