Watashi ga Motenai no wa dou Kangaetemo Omaera ga Warui 12 — Final Impressions

Well, with this, a whole cour’s worth of Wata­mote has just been com­plet­ed. It’s sad to see it go for now, but I hope there will be more sea­sons adapt­ing the man­ga in the future. That being said, I’ve enjoyed this series immense­ly and it’s def­i­nite­ly on my top favorites this year. Unlike oth­ers, I […]

There’s just much to say about this episode… I don’t even know where to begin. Since I’m busy prepar­ing for my next col­lege quar­ter, I’ll keep this short and sim­ple. This is episode of Wata­mote left me with a very hap­py feel­ing. Not ha ha hap­py with its usu­al cringe com­e­dy. But more of a… […]

Kids deserve quality entertainment too

Image Cred­it: しゅーいち from Pix­iv Does being aimed at an old­er audi­ence auto­mat­i­cal­ly mean an ani­me has a high­er like­li­hood of being high­er qual­i­ty? What about shows for chil­dren? Does being aimed at a younger audi­ence mean that the show is going to be filled with unin­ter­est­ing dri­v­el? Just as there is a stig­ma of animation […]

SOMETHING ISN’T RIGHT HERE Wait a minute, that isn’t where an ani­me pro­tag­o­nist is sup­posed to sit. It’s smack-dab in the mid­dle and in the front of the class­room of the class­room! What gives? …was what my reac­tion was, but then Tomoko pro­ceeds to lamp­shade it her­self. A whole sec­ond term of the school year of […]

Your friend’s job. Your job. I still find it high­ly remark­able just how much your aver­age Joe can relate to this series. It does a fan­tas­tic job of being dip­ping in and out of black com­e­dy, to being a rather grip­ping por­tray­al of the real­i­ty that more than a few unfor­tu­nate peo­ple have. I know […]

Kii-chan! Tomoko and Tomo­ki have such a cute lit­tle niece. Looks like she did­n’t inher­it the “exhaust­ed eye bag” gene. In con­trast to the last episode, this episode picks up the awk­ward­ness again… hard. I was actu­al­ly twitch­ing — no, cring­ing — at Tomoko’s attempts at keep­ing up her “cool, pop­u­lar, not-sin­­gle onee-chan” facade.

You guys don’t know how much I’m able to relate to Tomoko when­ev­er sum­mer break starts. “I’m going to have soooo much fun!” And then I end up doing noth­ing pro­duc­tive the whole break. Welp. Get a job you bum! Oh yeah, Jim­my Kudo and Dorae­mon receive guest appear­ances in this episode. Sort of.

Also known as “Spaghet­ti Spilling: The Ani­me.” ;_; I’ve read the man­ga for this series a long time ago, and as painful as it was to watch Tomoko fail count­less times to become pop­u­lar (in the same vein as watch­ing the main char­ac­ter from the Boys on the Run man­ga fail time and time again […]
