Watamote Tomoko Kuroki

Hey yo! Just watched this little anime called Watashi ga Motenai no wa dō Kangaetemo Omaera ga Warui! (No Matter How I Look at It, It's You Guys' Fault I'm Not Popular!) - A f*cking mouthful.

WataMote for short.

I think it deserves a little fan art, so I made one. This here is the main heroine of the story - Tomoko - my primary reason for watching this anime. She cracks me up! Who doesn't love a socially awkward (no, antisocial) high school girl with "hikikomori" tendencies and a chronic obsession with anime and games? She does a LOT of things in the anime that I myself do (being a bit of a recluse myself. A bit? Haha!). I'll ask myself, "do I really sound/look like that?" Then I'd laugh my ass off.

When she curses couples and other people being happy, when she tries to avoid being seen by school mates, when she tries to strike a conversation with people then awkwardly fail, when she resorts to talking to her brother everyday just so that she CAN have a conversation with a human being... I know how she freaking feels!

So here, Tomoko burning a photo of her more socially accepted self. Some times, you don't need to please society. Just be your geeky, loser self. I guess that's the point of this anime. *Like that helps.* :|

that anime is so painful to watch... 
my brother said she reminds him of me... there is so much truth in that, I'm pretty socially awkward
