Funny stuff, but this show is so goddamn awkward that I don't know if I'll be able to watch it without a shitload of valium.

Oh my god, my sides. This is an anime I'm glad I started. And now I know where the WcDonald's reference comes from! I don't know, I find this a combination of relatable, empathizing and comical. Steps out of traditional boundaries. Definitely continuing.

P.S. That Death Note reference made me applaud irl

P.P.S. Tomoko is one of the cutest characters I've ev--

Loved the Death Note reference!
I feel nice now that I get some references.

Themes were great!

I guess I have to binge watch this now!

Usually I don't like comedy animes, but this one caught my attention.
Tomoko is so cute, I love shy girls.

This poor kid. I feel so bad for her because she is just so painfully awkward, but at the same time I can't help laughing at her inept attempts to make herself appealing to the other kids in her class. I hope she makes some friends!!!

So I came here from Reddit.... wow. I'm super impressed.

DAT DEATH NOTE NODS THOUGH! AWESOME! The overly dramatic scene. She should've grabbed a chip too.

Anyway, Kuroki is really cute... even though she had those bags under her eyes. But wow, she's a cringey enjoyable character.

It's kinda depressing feeling the same thing as Kuroki when she was happy after saying goodbye to that teacher.
She is cute, the others are weird.

This was incredibly grating and painful as a person with social anxiety myself, but I have gotten much better with my social skills... and although I was really bad with my anxiety, I was never THAT bad...
The soundtrack in this episode even sounded all screwy and distorted; they really WANTED you to feel uncomfortable as all hell while watching this.

You know, there's a few simple things Tomoko could do to look more attractive:
1. Keep the bangs.
2. Comb her hair; do not wear pigtails, just wear it straight down.
3. Do NOT make that weird ass ugly af cringing face. WTF was up with that, anyway?
4. Wear makeup, ffs! It isn't that hard to put some on under her disgusting drooping eye shadows. It'd mostly cover them up until they've disappeared completely-- which leads me to number 5:
5. Eat healthy and fix sleep schedule; stop watching so many damn anime and stop playing so many damn games until 3 AM on a school night. She'd feel much better and her drooping eye shadows would gradually disappear.

Damn, I am not looking forward to watching more, but it wasn't bad per se... nothing special, either, just really awkward and ugly so far...

I'm rewatching this anime since someone said I gave it an unfair score, and I still hate it. Tomoko is annoying and a horrible protagonist for a show. She's unlikable and pretty much every flaw we see in ourselves. The whole show is just cringy and I don't see how anyone continued from the first episode. It's a shame the music in the series is pretty good.

The cringe was real in the first episode; especially the stairs part. :^)

Was that a freaking gantz reference in the first 7 minutes of episode one?! Awesome.

This was full of social anxiety and cringy behavior, as well as referential humor. If you didn't know the death note reference that scene would have been weird. Don't know how I feel about this yet, but it's nice to see Kuroki trying to improve and making progress in one episode. I get the gag may be that she always tries and doesn't actually develop in a healthy way, if so then I guess this point is moot, but she did go from not being able to speak to others, to saying goodbye and forcing herself to speak in one episode, as well as she actively tried to engage her conversation skills(even if in a poor way).

Her brother seems like a more healthy version of her, stressed out, somewhat anti-social, an anime fan, but also a soccer player and someone who manages to coexist with the world and have friends. He definitely seems like a good guy, going back to walk with Kuroki at the end, and Kuroki herself doesn't seem cruel- just envious towards those who have what she wants. She wanted to get a treat for her brother helping her, that's enough to show us she's not selfish.

The "I'd like water", "excuse me", "never mind!", and the "high school is already hard mode, so if it's going to get harder by college I should end it early and kill myself" jokes came a bit too close to home. That and her envy causing her to dismiss others. I saw myself in this little girl. I suppose the cathartic release of "you weren't alone, everyone as a little freak and that's why this is relatable" is part of why Watamote is beloved.

Lots of references to already existing anime, but my favorite were the guys to either side of her reading Akame ga Kill and Barakamon since both came out a year after
