Also know as Watashi ga Motenai no wa Dou Kangaetemo Omaera ga Warui! episode 1
This is an anime about a girl who has some serious problems. She is socially awkward, she spends almost all her time playing games and most of the time she is shut up in her room. Oh, no, sorry I got it wrong. She is not socially awkward, it is more like she is socially on a bring of death.
You see, in the first episode this girl can’t even bring herself to say goodbye to her teacher. She wants but she can’t, cause she is too shy and too unsure of herself. At one point of the episode she decided to go to McD and she barely managed to order a burger. She wanted to order some water too, but she couldn’t say it. That is some serious problems, I tell you.
So, the only people she can talk to are her family members.
And it wouldn’t be all that bad if she was ok with the situation. But at this point of her life Tomoko wants to have friends, especially a boyfriend. So she kind of wants to change herself.
Now there is a trick in this anime. First, this is an anime about unpopular girl Tomoko. She takes maybe like 95% of the screen time. Now look at her:
She looks pretty. By anime standards she is a pretty girl, with her crazy hair and big-big green eyes. There is nothing ugly about her, even though everyone tries to imply that she is bad looking.
And also, she is basically a normal person. All her problems emerge only when she talks with others. When she is by herself (which is all the time) she is just ok. She smiles and does not creep out the audience.
And on top of that she really wants to find a boyfriend. I don’t know how you see it, but it is quite obvious for me that they tried to make her appealing to the male audience. Though, considering her child-like looks, I have my suspicions about the exact demographics they were aiming at…
But anyway, she is pretty likable person. I’m sure lots of guys sympathize with her. Though, I wonder how girls see her?
Here are some more screen shots from the first episode ^_^
All in all I think thins anime will be the most fun to watch in this season. Try it out! See you next time (^_^)/
