Watamote! If the name doesn't get you, the story will. It's about socially awkward 15 year-old Tomoko Kuroki as she navigates the highs and lows of high school and society in her teens. Expectations were high as she thought she'd have a seamless transition into high school and be popular, but new freedoms bring added pressure and she soon finds herself on the outside looking in with no friends and more importantly - no boyfriend! Daunted, she gets in touch with an old middle school friend, Kotomi. To her dismay, Kotomi has blossomed in high school and even has a boyfriend. This pushes Tomoko further into her shell and intensifies her social difficulties. But luckily, she's got a mom, cousin and 'friends' who strive to imbue her with the confidence to succeed and conquer her fears and awkwardness. Watamote is indeed, a heartfelt, funny and accurate portrait of social awkwardness at every burgeoning teen's most frightful stage - High school.
