Wata Mote is getting an Anime!

WataMote Anime

There was this one manga which wasn’t really that popular in good old Japan, but then everything changed when the gaijin attached! The guys from 4chans /a/ just fell in love with this manga. People started buying multiple copies and thus dramatically improving its sales. It got so popular that they even started printing that its a huge hit on the western 2chan on the cover of it (as can be seen on the picture below). And this manga is of course Watashi ga Motenai no wa dou Kangaetemo Omaera ga Warui! or Wata Mote for short.


The story is about a 15 year old high school girl who is a complete shut in and is socially awkward. Like I mean it, she cant talk to anyone aside from family and 1 girl who she used to be friends with in elementary school. Yet we all love her. To some she might even be a representation of themselves, you lonely otaku hikis….

So far 3 volumes have been released (and of course I own all 3) and the 4th one coming in July (already preordered). But whats more important is that this glorious manga is getting an anime adaptation! Woah right? Next season (summer 2013) this show will have 23min episode every week for 12 weeks. Well all I can say is that I am seriously looking forward to see how they animate it, but judging by the PV, it looks awesome. Also the VA fits the role perfectly!
