First off, I apologise for the lateness of this blog. One: I didn’t realise the anime for this series had started until this week. Two: this opening has screaming vocals. Do you know how difficult it is to understand those lyrics with no paper reference?

Let me say this: I love WataMote. I love the manga wholeheartedly, and I’m extremely excited for the anime. I love Tomoko Kuroki, to me she’s the cutest loser in fiction. I love the “cringe-ness” of the cringe comedy. It’s like an anime version of ‘The Office’. Only set in a school. And better because, y’know, it isn’t ‘The Office’.

Watashi ga Motenai no wa Dou Kangaete mo Omaera ga Warui! (roughly translated to “No Matter How I See It, It’s You Guys’ Fault That I’m Not Popular!”, or officially translated to “It’s Not My Fault I’m Not Popular!”) is a series about a girl, Tomoko Kuroki, who feels ready for high school (having played high school out multiple times in dating sims) but finds out she’s a horrifically unpopular “mojo”. The series continues dealing with her depressing days of high school and her envy and possessiveness over her middle school friend Yuu (who turns out to be popular in high school). Along with other things.

I do recommend this series, especially since the opening is sort of a rendition of ‘What’s Up, People?’, Death Note’s second opening. And who doesn’t like that?
