Watamote is a breath of fresh air. It's not a typical high school manga that showcases the "moe" life.

Tomoko is by far one of the best protagonists. She is the very antithesis of a high school girl. She's a loner, a pervert, and overall just a mess of a human being. All these flaws though make me quite fond of her. Tomoko's cringe inducing moments are probably relatable for everyone in this site (hint:all anime fans are socially retarded).

Now let's talk about the art. Mediocre at the best but it gets the job done. The proportions are correct. The facial expressions are amusing. Although lacking detail. I can't help but think that the manga would gain more popularity if it wasn't for the subpar art.

Overall, if you want to read something about high school that isn't riddled with cancerous tropes (I'm talking about you harem protagonists) give Watamote a chance.
