Season 2 when? Checking out art on Twitter saddened me on how unaware the English masses are of her new friends
>>184537753Speculation is later this year based on a tweet the VA for Tomoko made about voicing a role she hasn't done in a few years, and her being a known fan of the series.
>>184537753>Start manga with unique, niche concept that attracted a specific demographic of people>Do that niche concept very well>Realize it wasn't selling so do a complete 180 and make it a yuri haremHopefully never, fuck Watamote
>>184537844Only one actually romantically likes Tomoko. And she’s a joke character
>>184537778Source? That'd be pretty fucking cool.Taking bets on Asuka's VA.
>>184537844Fuck character development
>>184538405I’m pretty sure that’s a tweet over the 15 second ads
>>184537778It was for a commercial to advertise the newest volume. It aired a week or two ago.
Is anyone still in denial about Tomoko's lesbian sexuality at this point?
>>184539483Nemo and Yuri are gonna get tired of being neglected by Tomoko and take each other as consolation prizes
>>184539483She's not lesbian, she's just asukasexual.
>>184538564>I'll justify my non sequitur by calling it developmentWhile you're technically right in that it is a development, that doesn't make it a good development.
>>184539725Asuka with the cute wreath on her head was the purest hnnggh I've ever done. She has to win the Tomokobowl now.t. hetero male
>>184539483She's been bisexual for the entire manga.
>>184539914Oups, looks like I just dropped our daily dose of diabetes in the thread.HHHNNNNGG
>>184537844I prefer it now, originally it was /v/ shit, but now it's just generic SoL that repels /v/ermin.
>>184539725Asuka makes me think of that one girl who everyone, EVERYONE has the hots for. Think 500 days of summer, we've all met one. That one girl who has a magnetic quality that you can't help but gawk at, an aura of perfection, purity and at the same time somehow, raw sex that gets every male in the room's testosterone boiling.
>>184539775Tomoko was the same loner cringelord all the way until volume 8 in the manga when the field trip took place, and she didn't decide to start trying to become a better person until volume 12 when Imae graduated.
>>184540024She is so perfect. Literally everything about her gives me a boner. A fantastic woman. Tomoko better hit that or else I'll be mad.
>>184540123Yeah, I get it/ And the worst part was that she wasn't even a haughty, snobby bitch, she was also super nice, so you can't even hate-love her. I guess that's kind of the generic "perfect schoolgirl" stereotype, but Asuka really pushes it to eleven.
I wonder why they went with such a drastically different artstyle for the characters in the anime. If they ever went with a S2 it feels like they'd almost have to do a soft reboot just to get the character models up to date.
>>184540140>better person blah blah blahAt one point this was a comedy manga.
>>184540188I'd like to see mama bear Asuka again. She's had quite a few moments where she got this scary aura, and I feel like that's foreshadowing for an eventual payoff where she just goes ballistic and shows her infamously invisible dark side.
>>184540275Because they were assumed as simple background characters and didn’t have personality
>>184540250I wonder if they will give her character any complexity. As it stands, the gag of Tomoko drooling over the impossibly perfect female is starting to grow stale.
>>184539483>>184539685>>184539725>>184539914>>184540024>>184540123>>184540250It's not fair yuri-bros it was supposed to be our time to win
>>184540374Hey, you got a nice vanilla doujin, we really have a good one yet.Hopefully there'll be one soon though
>>184540355At the end of the day Asuka is mysteriously accepting of Tomoko, pevertedness and all, and we still don’t know why
>>184540374She can still win in "what if" scenario fanarts.
>>184540434>Secret forest>Turn the ground into a sea of blood with your bloodNow that;s some fantastic translating. Watch and learn, W3.
>>184537844>Unique, niche conceptWell, first of all you're wrong. But even then, it would become shallow and boring if it was just the same "I hate normies, I want to play games, I'm so relateable," especially since that is so prevalent in humour nowadays. Watamote only became really good during and following the Kyoto trip.
>>184540449what the hell anon
>>184540434>Nah...what kind of taste Shizuku's DROP from your secret forest...
>>184540293>her dark side>Watamote suddenly snaps and turns into that horrible cleaning gyaru mangaNo please just let her be 110% perfect.
>>184540609tbqdesu after that chapter I was pretty sure that was exactly what was gonna happen.
>>184537753God bless everyone who makes Watamote art.
>>184540855It’s nice to see Japan respond positively and keeps up to date
>>184540609>cleaning gyaru manga>dark side, snapsWait, does that manga go in an interesting direction? I thought it was just gonna be tons of misunderstandings and accidents while the two lived with each other?Was she actually the one responsible for him living with her?
>>184540776It was a manga about a nerd who's really into cleaning and he befriends a gyaru. Hijinx ensue. Eventually the manga was cancelled and the author became batshit insane and started a never-ending "arc" where the student council president was attacked by rapists and the chapters where titled like 9, 9.1, 9.2, 9.3 and so on and after that, when mc had saved her, he swore off gyarus completely (but not really) and the manga ended.
>>184540932see >>184540935But let's not talk about it in this thread. Watamote is actually good. Really good. I don't see it going in that direction ever of course. I hope.
>>184540935What’s the title?
>>184540290>comeies can't have developmentYour pic is pretty ironic as Watamote's the most alive as it has ever been.
>>184540994It can get super serious with graduation looming and Tomoko’s love life
>>184541170I really hope it does go back to being more "uncomfortable" at least for a bit. Not that I don't appreciate the comfy sugary slice of life thing that's happening now of course.
>>184541266It’s a mix of both; it’s just that it’s no longer Tomoko alone making a fool of herself so it’s easy to miss
>>184540290My point is that Watamote long ago dried up the well that was the cringe loner status quo. It was played out and the author saw that coming a mile away and slowly developed the story away from it in a believable way without sacrificing too much of the manga's heart. And it didn't lose the comedy aspect at all, in fact, it was a direct evolution of what the comedy used to be because now we got characters with personalities to play and react off of Tomoko's quirkiness other than the standard "cringe".Honestly, Tomoko isn't at all that different from what she was before. The difference is that she associates with a few people at school now that she could call "friends".
>>184541784I remember somebody claiming that the girl’s personalities can from the artist’s experience from her high school and the gradual change was her giving more input to the writer
>>184541784>My point is that Watamote long ago dried up the well that was the cringe loner status quothe problem is always the status quo never blame the other stuff
>>184541909You prefer the anime ending to the manga continuation, then?
>>184541850Do you think the illustrator had her own "Asuka" in her class that she was attracted to?
>>184541050I like it.
>>184542349I don't know if she was attracted to her, but there's always that one girl in every class/cohort.
>>184539483Asuka needs to get BTFO hard
>>184543356It's too late now, she has become too powerful. Nothing can stop her.
>>184540188So a Mary Sue? ok.
>>184540275This is... anime Nemoto? What a cutie!
Guys, I think Ucchi might be gay.
>>184540855Any art that dosen't have Ashitka in it is 10/10 in my book.
>>184540935For real? wew lad.
>>184543420But she has no hair dye and no cute jacket
>>184537753Why can't pineapple wear her jacket properly?
Mandatory and good night!
>>184537753i want to see them get fuck by fat faceless bastards already
>>184543380What a great piece of fanart. Who made it?
Do you think they'd change tbe art style if there is a season 2?
>>184539483Doesn't she call another character a lesbo? Yet she's always done things to her slut friend? Fucking normal fag with friends since day 1 fuck this series!
>>184544149>facelessno way, they need a raep face to make it better
Note that the mangaka has 2 other series that are 500x better and they will never get an anime adaptation.
>>184537753>her new friendsYou mean her harem.
>>184544939The only other series they did that was as good was Kuzu To Megane.
>>184545319Bungaku shoujo had the potential to be even greater than watamote by far (interesting premise, original main character and smart humor, specially by jap standards) but it was held back by its format. It was a bad idea to make it a 4koma, that format is cancer.And japs have shit taste as well, so they don't appreciate it or the humor.
>>184543422That damn Tomoko turned her into a lesbian! How nefarious!
>>184544692Most likely, and also a change is colour palette
>>184545701Yeah it was funny. Their other stuff seems pretty boring.
>>184544134What's wrong with her eyes?
>>184546798You can't marry your brother
>>184546773My wife's eyes are perfect and nothing is wrong with them
>>184544065Have you ever tried putting a jacket on a pineapple
>>184537753There is certainly enough material for a season 2 at this point. I hope one day we get it. Did the anime sell well enough that a new season could be possible?
>>184547349I don't think so. The latest volumes are selling well
>>184547349The anime didn't sell well at all.
Watamote is the perfect example why we can't have nice things anymore10 years ago brainlets like them>>184538564>>184540099>>184540140watched friends, how i met your mother and whatever generic shit Now they watch anime and play videogames too, but their principles are the sameThey want the same shit over and over and over again. And since commercialism and stupidity are closely related, this is what we 'll get.
>>184547528What the fuck are you talking about?
>>184547349Back when everyone loved class mom in the threads
>>184544149There are two doujins involving that, though the faceless bastards are not that fat.
>>184547047But you can fuck him. and make babies
This song means so much to me. I remember watching the episodes as they came out. God, I could relate so much to her awkwardness and solitude. It's a great song too. Sorry, I just had a really strong urge to share this with someone but I don't really have anyone so I came here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PWOTQRduHeAI have more inside my heart I want to explain but it won't come out. This song just means a lot to me and I can't vocalise why. I think I have nostalgia for it too since it was so long ago.
>>184537844Sounds like you just have shit taste. It's better now than it was in the first 70 chapters
Dagashi Kashi author did some Tomoko fanart.
Needs more Minami.
>>184549466Sauce on this?
Not even Asuka is safe
>>184549686I know the feeling anon. Crazy that it aired around 6 years ago now. Feels like yesterday.
>>184549969What’s crazier it’s been over a year since we noticed that Yuri has actual mental issues but in a different flavour
>>184549913I'd love to see this referenced soon in the manga. I loved pineapple and asukas reaction to when fang tried shittalking tomoko and the gang.
Previous chapter was really comfy with how Nemo and Yuri get into their childlike sides after Tomoko shows them a thing or two about bugs.
>>184539483mommy is too powerful
>>184537753Do people actually wear their sweaters like this?
>>184551609Yes. Do you live under a rock? Home-schooled. perhaps?
>>184550535What mental issues? Is she actually autistic? >>184549686Tomoko is my spirit animal
let Tomoko be herself, anons
>>184551404god why are they so thirsty for tomo, i mean fucking lookit them
>>184549686The anime was pretty good in terms of music.
>>184537753Probably never, may as well expect that at least. I know the anime didn't sell well and I think that's cause they only sold a few episodes per disk. Why they do that, I don't know. Of course no one's going to buy that shit.
>>184549969>6 yearsNo way.
>>184553292This is almost convincing me to re-pick the series up, after not managing to bear past chapter 30 or 40 something at the start years ago.
>>184554036It's worth it. Pay attention when the student council president is around at least and you should be good.
>>184553292I don't care much for the supposedly implied lesbianism, but I think this link really drives home how good the author is at character development, and at naturally making the other characters and the environment around them react and develop accordingly depending on what happens. I bet if you took each character individually and studied their appearances in a similar way, you'd get similarly impressive results.
>>184554601Yeah, I basically did that myself for the main cast at the time in a review and seriously, as long as you can FIND the character, you can see how they develop. Yuri is a great example as a character people say has only gotten clingy and autistic recently, but she's introduced that way and has only "improved" lately.Katou is often being called no-personality, no-substance etc but I've always found that absurd because just like any other character, you can trace her development and her building interest in Tomoko.
>>184553292>No seriously, what did she mean by "That's it?" It sure doesn't seem like she meant it like, "Well OK as long as that's the extent of your perversion then you're not in trouble." She seemed kind of disappointed?In case anyone's really confused about this it's simple.1) She thinks Tomoko is lying about the extent of her harassment2) Since this is another case of Tomoko being dishonest, this bothers her3) She's *right*. Tomoko's harassment is more than just some lewd jokes and staring. She gropes them, hits on them, teases them and so on.
>>184540250I think it'd be really, legitimately incredible if she outed herself as a lesbian to Tomoko.I don't expect that. I imagine the gay stuff in this series will remain not legit and never TRULY acknowledged, but Nico could handle it well if they actually did that.
>>184555342Would it be that odd? Tomoko’s been lusting over girls for the whole manga and Ucchi is blatantly lesbian for her now. Also the subjects of lesbianism and bisexuality have been directly addressed multiple times.
>>184547349I feel like it's fairly possible. Not HIGHLY, but the series is extremely popular again (and again entirely through word of mouth and its own merits; you know, this series is pretty fucking astounding), the voice actor of Tomoko reprised her role albeit briefly for something, there's been a unique poll that drummed up a lot of interest...Like, if there's a time, that time is pretty much now. It's just shaky since it's been so fucking long.
>>184555472It would because these kinds of things might indeed happen in shounen manga, but it is HORRIBLY rare, and a move like "making your bisexual character actually fucking gay and handling it seriously (despite being a comedy series)" is... I mean god damn, it's pretty much unthinkable unless the PREMISE was gay (like Shouraiteki ni Shindekure or the famous YagaKimi; both gay, shounen, and popular). Watamote has only ever teased homosexuality, except for a few (like count them on one hand) brief moments where the idea of lesbianism isn't portrayed comically. On the bright side those moments are all with Ucchi and Katou, the gay and suspiciously gay characters.1) Ucchi gives Tomoko chocolates and hides, probably embarrassed, while Tomoko finds them. Not played for laughs.2) This page where Ucchi begins to realize she's not the only one who knows Tomoko "well". Not really played for laughs.3) Katou date. A bunch of "played straight" moments with her (while she's being strangely romantic)4) Katou lap pillow is portrayed seriously.It's enough that I could see "true gay" being justified, but not enough that I wouldn't be hella surprised if it happened.
>>184555883I seriously don't even know how I'm supposed to interpret this.what the fuck is she thinking
>>184549848It's almost hard to believe Watamote's popular again
>>184555883>>184556069Ucchi doesn't stand a chance.
Will there be open conflict between Asuka and Ucchi at some point?
>>184540349Is far left supposed to be somebody?
>>184558353Maybe Ucchi will get jealous enough to confront Asuka and ask her what's her deal with Tomoko
>>184553257and in terms of everything else too.
have anxiety? just be gay
>>184559712>have anxiety? But she doesn'tShe's developed as a character and was even able to talk to a dude who asked her about the dick pics in class from her previous year
>>184559967She does, just because she's better at handling it doesn't mean it's not there.
>>184553292Well fuck. Now I'm on team Asuka.
>>184539483Succubi are one hell of a drug.
>>184560072As much as normal person probably. You should probably actually read the chapters, she's able to converse naturally with people she just met and handle new situations without turning into an autist.
>>184537844>There are anons who did NOT grow out of their socially awkward autist phase by their last year of high school
>>184537844Imagine how much more of these kind of posts we'll get if there is a season 2.
>>184545701It got stale after a while.
>>184549898>Tomoko with Hotaru eyesHnnnngh!
>>184551404The ending ruined it though. Fuck Asuka.
>>184553257That Hatsune Miku song in episode 6 was so kino
>>184537844>and make it a yuri haremit's literally called "It's you guys fault im not popular", what the fuck did you think it was going to be aboutfuck off to /r9k/ you miserable shit
>>184553292I've always seen Asuka as just that proactive confident sociable person who is able to see the appealing qualities in someone like Tomoko, since she ignores gossip. I thought the people constantly asserting that she and Tomoko are totally gay for each other is kinda dumb. Reading this album does make it seem possible that Asuka has a deeper romantic interest in Tomoko (I still don't think that'll end up being the case), but I definitely don't see it proving that Tomoko has a romantic interest in Asuka. Tomoko gets similarly flustered and does embarrassing things with lots of girls, and I think stuff like the gifts she gives Asuka are a result of wanting to pay her back since she's always so nice to Tomoko. I think Asuka just wants to go to college with Tomoko because she truly believes she's an interesting person as a friend, and likes that Tomoko doesn't get involved in petty drama and admires her ability to fix relationships even if Tomoko doesn't see it herself.Anyway, it's cool to see a compilation of a character developing like this though, like >>184554601 said. Watamote's character development and consistency with past interactions is imo its major strength, I love it for that.
Will Yuu-chan ever be relevant again?
Hope Tomoko's bland Asuka-worshipping thing is put to bed really soon. It's getting really boring. Can't wait for Nico to focus on the important things like Mako, Ucchi Gang and Nemo/Yuri friendship
>>184564234She'll ironically somehow be the only one to make it to the same college as Tomoko.
>>184564509She's too stupid to make it into the one Katou and Emoji group were planning on going to.
>>184555883>like Shouraiteki ni ShindekureI'd love to see a more outgoing Ucchi pursuing Tomoko like the protag in Shouraiteki. That would be fun to read
>>184564679Hence ironically. I mean, out of everyone, she's the one that's been non-stop studying and hasn't been acting like a possessive jealous girlfriend.
>>184564504>important things>MakoYou can only choose one.
>>184564927F-fuck you anon she just hasn't had her chance to shine yet
>>184565102Fang's boyfriend is pretty cute>>184559571
>>184564234She was never particularly relevant.
>>184561762Depends how far season 2 would get.
I feel so bad for Ucchi.
>>184540024She is kawaii
Is Tomoko still for (me)?
>>184539483Nah, if you read the entire manga, it's pretty clear she is bisexual. Sure, her pervertedness may be on the girls as of late (probably because yuri baiting sells), but you can find enough moments in the manga where she clearly appreciates the male form. Personally I couldn't care less if and with whom she ends up with. Shipping was never the reason why I started reading this manga.
>>184563391>it's literally called "It's you guys fault im not popular"yfw nico has been setting this up since the beginning to have the yuri harem be the reason she is not more popular because they want her to themselves.
>>184549848That art style would actually fit the character.
>>184566627Nah, people have been saying Watamote is a lesbian harem since the Kyoto Trip arc. In fact, that's what resparked my interest.
>>184564234Characters from early Watamote are in a different spot than those introduced from around volume 7-8, because those characters were conceptualized during that period when Tomoko was at her most awkward. New characters that were able to bring Tomoko out of her shell were necessary to move the story forward, and sadly that forced characters like Yuu somewhat to the sidelines, because they couldn't realistically move the story in that direction.
>>184562070You mean fuck Tomoko. Asuka did nothing
>>184563846I think one telling "gay" thing is that, seriously, Asuka is almost always looking at her. Even in the little Imae bonus chapter recently, she's gazing happily at Tomoko's face.
>>184569534It's motherly love. She considers Tomoko her daughter.
>>184569597That's Tomoko's interpretation and she's not exactly perceptive
>>184565102Don't post my husband (female) again
>>184569534I haven't gone to check this specifically for any other characters, but I'd bet there's plenty of characters that look at Tomoko more than she makes eye contact herself. Though I'd agree that Asuka staring at her is emphasized by the manga more than most others.
>>184537844watamote is good precisely because it didn't just go stale and actually had progressionunlike every other SoL out there that never goes anywhere always at status quo
>>184570548A minute of silence for Amano Megumi who is NEVER GETTING FUCKING LAID EVER
>>184553292Nothing to say really, just found for an excuse to Asukapost.
>>184554440>Minami, but she was discreetly shipped to your home, and she doesn't know english, and flinches whenever you touch her and cries when she thinks you aren't in the house.
>>184540449I need source, man
>>184542025>You prefer the anime ending to the manga continuation, then?what?
>>184572538Thinking the manga has problems beyond the change in status quo basically boils down to "it's problematic because I don't like it". The conclusion one must draw from that is then that the person would prefer the old status quo. My question would then be if that person would prefer the ending to the anime over what the manga developed into, i.e would you rather see it end in basically the same way the anime ended than it continuing on, becoming something you don't like? Ending Watamote on the old status quo without changing would basically equal the anime ending anyway where Tomoko learns to live with her awkwardness and loneliness or whatever, it would just end partway through volume 8.
I feel bad for the anons who don't like the direction it's taken. Since that's what it all comes down too. Some people like yuri-bait and that's what this is now. Though it's because Tomoko was the perfect character to set it up for. She has always had the mindset of a tomboy and someone who is straight, but had more guy friends so ultimately started looking at woman as a man would.Maybe I'm projecting too much into the character, but that's how I've taken the change and I love it.
>>184573361>had more guy friendsWhere did you get this? From the beginning it was established that she couldn't talk with boys, let alone be friends with them. The only guy she used to barely talk to was Tomoki.
>>184573581I meant more so the little boy guy friends she played cards with. Her brother she talked many times to when they were young. It's been mentioned many times they would play games and go fishing with their dad. Those are the years that shape your personality. So being surrounded by men and your mom plus one close chick friend. That friend who she constantly oogled in her head.
>>184553146It's more like Tomoko being a black hole of pure chill. It's mostly easier to be yourself around people who just be themselves around you.
>>184573361Tomoko couldn't interact with any guy so she settled with girls. She is bisexual but really she just has low self esteem. Sort of like how betas would just settle for trannies, i.e. speed running or fgc... During elementary, kids would bully her and call her names. See chapter for when Yuu asked if she had a nickname and she said KuroNeko. In middle school she was overly chunni and now self realize how cringy it is. In her freshman year, no one talked to her except for Nemoto who thought she was always messing with her until recently from the last chapter.Im thinking the next theme after the sports competition will be her friends raising Kuroko's self esteem. A big turning point is Nemo realizing how loney she was and how Tomoko sees her self in a negative light.
the best part about this manga will be when /u/ gets blown the fuck outin japan crushing on a hot friend is normal and doesn't make you gay(unless its for a gag like ucchi)
>>184574194Tomoko's breasts look too big here.
>>184574263It's just Asuka's milk-field having an effect on her surroundings.
>>184574194Its pretty clear that Asuka and Ucchi are counterparts similar to Nemo and Yuri. That imgur link that was posted in the thread nailed the spot on Asuka's character.She may be likely a class S but I wouldnt be surpised if she was a lesbian. Tomoko's VA is gay and is really big in the /u/ community that it isn't a stretch if she influence how the story will progress and end.
>>184573858Ehh I doubt spending time with boys would turn her into a lesbo, besides she has never mentioned any sort of romantic attraction to girls, she's only a pervert for that matter. The way I see it, she harrasses other girls just to relieve her sexual frustration, taking advantage of them being friends.
>>184574415>Tomoko's VA is gayHuh. Really?
>>184553292What the hell, I love Asuka now. >>184562105Natsu matsuri? Heard it appear when I was watching ReLife about a month ago, which was totally disappointing to the source material which made me bawl.
I really wish they did something more with Itou, like, imagine her becoming friends with Yuri. Have popularity polls been made? I bet she's big with the japs.
>>184574415>Tomoko's VA is gay and is really big in the /u/ community that it isn't a stretch if she influence how the story will progress and end.I'm sorry, what?
>>184577666>https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Izumi_Kitta>In 2017 she had her first manga, Liberty, published in yuri magazine Galette, illustrated by Moto Momono.
>>184577914Well that only confirms she's a yurifag and we all know you don't need to be a lesbian to enjoy Yuri.
>>184537753After the 100% confirmed Bleach anime.
>>184544922Oh Is that guy from that cuck image?Source?
>>184578311>>184578335>>184578365>>184578433Tomoko is in character (good) but we need more information about Katou so I don't know if she is truly in character (she doesn't have inner monologues. weird)
>>184561842Well as I said, imo it was very limited by the format. It gets increasingly harder to deliver a punchline or storyline in 4 panels which have to be self-contained to a degree.You can tell they were going for different overarching storylines as well as humor but a 4koma just doesn't have the complexity, inherently.
>>184579362It's subtle enough that it fits Katou, or at least one interpretation of her. She's been hinted to be more insecure than she usually appears.
>>184579362Still believable at this moment unless her inner monologue is revealed to be like the total opposite.
>>184579362Some anons theorize that the oddly nostalgic bit of internal monologue near the end of the staying-in-because-of-rain chapter was actually Katou's internal monologue, because she makes that bittersweet face in the corresponding panels.
>>184579561what is this supposed to be
>>184579561Oh, waitTournament style? So Katou winning. Sounds about right
>>184579751Yeah, here's the template.
Do you guys read any other manga with a similar premise to Watamote? This manga got me hooked on the "awkward girl tries to make friends" story and eventually branched off to Bocchi and Komi-san. The quirkiness and character progression of each main character and their supporting cast is distinct enough to be worth a read.
>>184579440>>184579452>>184579561We really need a Katou arc after the sports arc
>>184564234Holy fuck. She was her only friend and we haven't seen her in over a year.
>>184580009Kek if you listened to some anons in those threads you'd think we've been in a Katou arc for the last 20 chapters.
>>184580051We practically have been.
>>184580146And it's great.
>>184564234I'd rather have more Yuu-chan than Ashitka
>>184564504What about Tomoko/Nemo friendship or Tomoko/Yoshida friendship?
>>184580158No it's not. I want Kato to get BTFO.
>>184580450Anon, relax. Just let it happen. There is nothing to be done at this point, it's too far gone.
>>184580475Fang will save us.
>>184580567I don't think she can save us from Asuka, but hopefully she can save us from boredom. A nice, drama-filled Minami arc would be cool.
>>184580450By who? Ucchi? No one else is even playing in the Tomokobowl properly.
>>184580235I still don't get why delinquent-chan hangs out with Tomoko, out of all she makes the least sense
These two will end up being best friends when they realize Asuka is too powerful to overcome alone.
>>184537844thisfuck yuri niggers, men who like this shit are mentally ill men who want to roleplay as girls
>>184580803Wouldn't it be funny if they kissed? Hahaha that would be crazy.
>>184580803>Maybe the real ship was NemoYuri all along
>>184543832>But she has no hair dye and no cute jacketshe was like that on their first year though
>>184556699The power of yuri and Yuri.
>>184580803This is hot for some reason.
>>184580993With the last chapter I've come to realize YurixNemo is the patrician ship.They are so different, yet so similar. I could see them supporting each other in the things they each are weak in, and the difference in their temperament making for interesting lovemaking sessions. Opposites attract.
>>184574117Anime Tomoko seems like a weird caricature of manga Tomoko now. Even her design feels off. It made sense at the time since they didn't expect the manga to develop in the direction it did, but I think a season 2 would need a whole new style.
What month is the current timeline at right now? Is it May?
>>184581700This practically like the same as getting sex, pregnant and mortage!
>>184579774Who's the girl between uchi and bear costume supposed to be? Also, this bracket is poorly/not seeded.
>>184582401That's unnamed school rep, she was eating in the restaurant in the recent delinquent chapter.That chart is pretty old. We could make a new one. How would you seed it?
>>184582447Swap yuri with school rep, fang with yoshida, yuu with itou/iguchi, and kii with mako. Would probably change uchi too but not sure to where, maybe swap her with komi.
>>184540449Looks like a garden of earthly delights.
>>184540935The best part was the "Make my body clean again" line.
>>184580475 Well shit>>184581435 Am I the only one who ships Tomoko and Nemoto?
>>184583253That's one big pineapple
Why is Akane name so perfect?
I think I'm sexually attracted to Anna, is that normal?
>>184585055That's my wife you son of a bitch
>>184579974Yeah, they're all good, though funnily enough Watamote is the least comedic``
>>184584331It's popular, but like Tomoko/Yuri not actually realistic. Nemo and Yuri are just Tomoko's friends, not attracted to her. Probably.Ucchi is gay. Katou is suspicious.
>>184580803I like a good relationship built from antagonism. Gimme the hatesex
>>184580987Yuri's gotten flak lately but it really shouldn't be underestimated how much she made the manga evolve.She made me legitimately care about honorifics/name-use, something I never really understood despite all I've read, all I've watched, and despite living in Japan. First time I really understood how it was a tangled situation, when to use first names and so on.
>>184585957Who would be on top?
>>184586253Definitely Nemo. Yuri's a sub.
>>184585055Is she letting Tomoko grope her? That seems like a bad idea.
>>184585055>>184587841>>184588080>Anon, are you retarded?
>>184570934Still has shots of ass and thicc thighs so it's doing what it set out to do.
What's her endgame?
>>184589268Slutting herself for donation money.
>>184540449Is this a reference to something?
>>184589454Would you give money to this being?
>>184537844This.The fuck happened?
>>184589268She’s clearly a robot preparing to destroy humanity.
>>184591150No, I would run in fear from that being. It is clearly much more advanced than I, and would see me as nothing but an insect. I do not wish to die from this evolutionary triumph.
>>184591182The artist actually became more involved, with her helping out with much of the new characters
As much as many of you seem to hate the new focus on Katou, remember that before the end of the Disneyland trip Tomoko was practically falling out of focus in favor of Yuri and Nemo. At least now our main character is back in the center stage again.
>>184591487>Implying you could escapeYour best bet would be to try and appease it.
Does anyone, besides yurifags, actually like Asuka? I liked her at first when she was more of a background character but now that she's had more than enough focus I feel she's a bland and uninterested character compared to Yuri, Nemo, Komi, Yoshida or even Akane (my waifu)
>>184580803Truly, the yin and yan of watamote.
>>184576230>>184577666Aside from her yuri manga, she also attends yuri conventions, talks about yuri manga in interviews, and stars in lesbian-centered plays. She really loves girls loving girls.
>>184586313>he doesn't know
>>184564927mako is too good for screentime. you can't just dump sugar all over your food all at once.
>>184579561>Emoji beating Emoji v2.0Yeah, nah, shit's fucked mate. Big time.
>>184594336Sorry anon, but the previous emoji model is now obsolete. The new Emoji MKII was designed for high efficiency and to complete any kind of task. Its new operative system allows this new emoji to emulate human behavior at a 35%.
man, I'm almost tempted to read this from the start again for like the fourth time.
>>184586313So is Nemo.
>>184594591Emoji is like Q.T. in love. He won the battle, but lost the war.
Am I supposed to self-insert as Ucchi?
>>184598492No Ucchi's friend. The one with black hair.
>>184598849>Bocchi has larger lesbian harem than Tomoko
>>184598967Tomoko is hotter than Komi
Are you looking forward to the inevitable "summer festival date with Asuka" chapter?
>>184599651Absolutely not. Tomoko should hang out with Nemo, Yuri and maybe Yuu instead.
>>184599978What about Yoshida?
>>184599651At the rate the manga's timeline is moving, all the summer chapters could be a year's worth of stories.
>>184599478Summer break probably
>>184599287Isn’t it nice that these two are close now.
>>184538564It only works if it's good character development. Tomoko was just handed a group of about ten friends on a silver platter.
>>184537844>yuri haremAre you so far down gone off the socially inept end that you can't tell apart friends from romantic interests?
>>184537844But Tomoko is the straightest character in this manga, aside from Yoshida and possibly Komiyama. It's not her fault she's surrounded by all these raging lesbians.
>>184598967Isn't Tomoko older than Komi at this point?
>>184603287this needs a watamote version
On topic but off topic --I hate when fan artists screw around with a characters canon looks i.e. giving a smaller sized character larger than canon tit and ass sizes. Like Tomoko, who is petite and thin with a small chest size, suddenly having Yuu sized, or larger, tits and hips in art.Tomoko's size is just perfect the way she is. Quit fuckin with her. Wanna draw a titcow? Then draw a canon titcow character and leave the small, thin ones alone.
>>184604093is this the new "Konata fucks like a minx" pasta?
>>184589099That smug Yuri is really something
>>184601085Yoshida is too pure to be hanging out with all these sluts.
>>184540935Ah , so it really was cancelled.Not that I expected otherwise given the utterly retarded turn of events but at least I'll stop waiting for it
>>184603287Yuu-chan actually had sex with a guy, she's the straightest.
>>184607101She's a S L U T, not straight.
>>184602240Patrician ship and I'm not even a /u/ fag
>>184589099Nemo's face creeps me out sometimes.
What's the best way to secure your fang?Hands cuffed to Neck?hands cuffed togetheror one hand cuffed to each thigh?
>>184569534anyone else think Tomoko's senpai and kouhai might be related?
>>184609549Molten in a puddle.
My wife Asuka is just too sexy!
>>184609727She's not your wife yet, Tomoko.
>>184609636I'll melt her into a puddle.
>>184609636Why is she melting?
>>184610344It's inspired from this panel where she BSOD's from sheer boredom.
Why can't you just accept that all the relationships Tomoko has with girls are strictly platonic? She's going down on a man at the end but Yuri would be with her all the way as her bff.
>>184610689She's clearly got a crush on Asuka though.
>>184610689Yes absolutely my dude, yuri is dumb lol.pic unrelated
Tomoko has a harem now
>>184537753>Season 2 when? Checking out art on Twitter saddened me on how unaware the English masses are of her new friendsIt honestly amazes me how many people, not just with this series, refuse to ever fucking read the manga their anime is based on. You'd think being able to go at your own pace, breeze through a chapter and have an idea of what's happening would be appealing but for a lot of people if a work doesn't ahve an aired anime adaptation it might as well not exist.>>184537844Stay mad waifuist scum.
>>184610935>We have this post every week for the past 2 years.
>>184610981at least half of that replies are samefaggotry
Akane>example of a good side character>doesn't steal focus >jokes are well executed and very funny >has a clearly defined purpose in the story, Nemo's normalfag friendAsuka>example of a bad side character>steals focus>has no comedy moments at all since the make-up incident >no role other than being a 'perfect girl is perfect' characterCan Nico truck-kun Asuka out of this manga before she does it anymore harm?
>>184611171>Asuka>side characterBitch is so alpha that this is her manga now, you're just along for the ride.
>>184611171Why is Nemo so afraid of Asuka?
>>184611452Nemo is a socialite, and Auska is the queen bee.Have you never seen high school movies?
>>184611452As a psycho she recognizes another of her kind.
>>184611171Akane is my waifu. She's sociable but isn't a slut like Yuu and Asuka.
>>184611563No, sorry. So Yuri and Yoshida are inmune of Asuka's alphaness right?
>>184611621Yuri is a fucking loser, she is not aware of the social hierarchy, and Yoshida is too busy being a goddamned criminal to care.
>>184604093Does this count
>>184611845forgot the pic
>>184611171>no comedyI don't know anon, any time she NTR's the competition almost to tears I start laughing.
>>184610689If Tomoko were any gayer she would already be scissoring Asuka
>>184611621>>184611805Yoshida is in her own delinquent hierarchy and Yuri is a turbo autist
>>184539483Tomoko slept on the couch that night.
>>184537844The irony of watamote is that as tomoko has become more popular and social I've become essentially a NEET and lost most of my friends. So if I wanted to see a story about a useless loser I'd just look at myself.
>>184594242Well I'll be
I want to see Tomoko getting gang-banged by her entire harem.
>>184598128Nemo's more forthright though.
>>184604093Then man, don't get into Touhou
Yuri is the most relatable character in any manga, she needs to take over the MC position.
>>184589013we need more of her
>>184540349Well they were. I don't think Nico really planned on any of the characters gaining the prominence they now have and I'm still not sure how much of it is planned out vs. going with the flow and making things up on the fly. I think they definitely do take fan response into account though; the move in the more yuri-centric or yuribaiting direction is definitely a response to where they realized fan interest was.That's a roundabout way of saying GIB GANG NICO!
>>184549848>Kaguya's author likes Watamote and is a Nemo Chad>Dagashi Kashi's author likes WatamoteWonder what other mangaka are fans?
I stopped caring when I heard she got friends and become a normalfag
>>184614450>heardIt sounds like you stopped caring before that.
>>184614120Ucchi Gang dealing with Ucchi's lesbian antics when?
>>184613825Sadly she is too autistic to steal Tomoko's spot
>>184614322Kiss him not me's author was a big enough fan (to fucking try and steal the name Watamote)It was during the lowest point in the comic's popularity, but I still resent it.
Is Yuri actually autistic or is it just a meme?
>>184614921She's got a lot of ticks you start to notice after all a while. One of them is that if she's nervous she'll start to clutch her elbow with her arm. At the very least she has social anxiety.
>>184579561That's a stupid thing to theorize because the language style in it is completely Tomoko's, not Katou's. I don't think we've gotten that style of internal monologue from any character except Tomoki (in the ones where he's the MC) and Nemo in her flashback chapter. If we see the character's thoughts otherwise it's in thought bubbles.Katou's disappointment came from the fact she was clearly expecting Tomoko to molest her/drool on her again and it didn't happen.
>>184614892when did the comic have the least popularity?
>>184614921>>184615044It's really obvious that she's at least a sperg and not just afflicted with social anxiety. For example her complete inability to read a mood properly like the rain/study hall chapter where she just bitches at the end that the entire thing was a waste of time leading to a "chastizing YURI!" from Mako. There's also the fact that she decided early on that her friend group was going to be her, Tomoko, Yoshida and Mako and feels nervous or pretty obviously upset if it's disrupted.
>>184539483she was always a bisexual degenerate, but yes, the series now have strong yuri undertones
>>184611171>no comedy moments>if I didn't find it funny, it's not comedyI won't bother repeating why she hasn't actually stolen focus or why she's more than just perfect because you seem like the sort of person who would say Tomoko was never gay or Yuri turned into a clingy and possessive autist. In other words: a reader who doesn't pay attention.
>>184615633I think rather than her being bi she's just a pervert.
>>184615888This, all she's done is molest Yuu out of jealously and sexually frustration. Only deluded tumblr fags actually think the yuri route is possible.
>>184614921Eh, if we're talking about "actual autism" I think "no", but she's definitely strange.She's passive aggressive, obsessive, clingy, and lacks social graces.
>>184602131>Tomoko was just handed a group of about ten friends on a silver platter.speed readers need to fuck off
>>184614921she just have an abrasive personality. For some reason she was acting "normal" before meeting Tomoko, I guess Tomo bring the worst of every person she meet.
>>184616706She was already kind of a moody retard before meeting Tomoko, the very first time we see her she's throwing a tantrum at Mako.
>That Asuka doujin with genderbent TomokoMy dick, why are gyaru doujins so good?
Post more Rena
>>184616456Bro, did you not even read the chapter where Tomoko lent her manga? She is legit autistic but its endearing because Tomoko understands.Like most autistic people, they get clingy to people who show any ounce of affection to them.
the word "autism" has lost its meaning
>>184616975I don't know, because I don't really understand autism and know that most people use it as a catchall for "obsessive" or "weird" on the Internet, although AFAIK true autists have legitimate PROBLEMS.Honestly Yuri just seems moody to me and a loner. She doesn't get triggered by anything nor does she have genuine ticks like tapping on things or zoning out.
>>184569534Is this official or fan art? I don't seem to remember reading this in the uni chapter with Asuka
>>184617252It's official. The omake from the tanks don't always get translated and uploaded.
>>184617252Volume bonus chapter
>>184569534She didn't even say hello. What the hell is that? Literally a once in a lifetime event seeing someone from high school in campus at a private university.
>>184617701Could be intruding, and she probably thinks she could embarrass Tomoko (she could, Tomoko is easily embarrassed)
>>184615232A little after the Kyouto field trip, but before the harem stuff really started taking off.A lot of Manga sites stopped updating it, and people that didn't know SW3 had their own site thought the manga had been dropped completely.
>>184616975Are you insinuating that everyone who didn't like that Manga was an aspie (Kotomi, Fang, and Yuri)....Cause I'm all for Aspie Fang.
>>184618292They are all assburgers but not for that reason.
Just wondering how much was the image limit again.Btw I like how Yuri looks in this one.
BRING YOSHIDA BACK.
>>184618764There's a very well maintained wiki.
i forgot about all the characters and who they are and where they got introduced. Is there somewhere where i can read about it. Im still reading the manga but i can't remember anything about the charactersLike is there some kind of summary to read or something?
>>184607101Yuu-chan? More like Who-chan!
>>184618820Thanks,i looked it up and it was useful
Nico know exactly what the fuck they're doing, those clever bastards. I know what they're doing too, but I can't stop myself from loving it. Goddamnit.
>>184618764I would have accused you of not checking the fanwiki before coming here to ask that. but I just looked myself and the front page of that thing is a fucking disaster.Rest assured though, if you actually go to the characters page, all the recent addition to the cast are on there.
Listening to the Watamote anime opening feels so weird now
>>184619771That's just 1st year. If they ever animate 2nd year, it'll probably be more like Persona op/ed due to the shift.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SQ8Rr-9yDrY
>>184616816True, but Mako ditched her on the trip to join Minami’s group. That’s a big betrayal. Any normie girl would be furious about that. We didn’t see her weird side properly until she saw Tomoko with Yuu.
>>184620087Wow, I’ve never seen that before. I really like it. I would not be upset if they went with something similar to that.
>>184619771It was always a weird opening.
>>184558560Or maybe she'll grow ovaries and Tomoko out.
>>184619771>>184621518Idk I always found it oddly fitting. Specially with how Tomoko used to have a lot of inner rants at the beginning.
>>184603287Is megane-kun angry?
>>184622172It is definitely fitting but jarring. I would be lying if I said it did not surprise me at first.
>>184583583Last pineapple of the night. See you all next thread in case this one gets archived by tomorrow morning
>>184623111I never knew how bad I wanted an absolutely stacked sporty pineapple gf until now.
>>184623111Cute pure busty tomboys are the best.
>>184623207When will it return
>>184624049I thought it was over when Jun confessed. Is it still going?
>>184624200no way, that's the end? I thought it was on Hiatus
>>184616024Don't be so sure anon. I bet you didn't think the manga would end up being like this 100 chapters ago. Who knows what's in store.
>>184624306It's on hiatus. The hiatus was extended indefinitely, though. We have no idea where the author is or what he's doing.
>>184624842Ucchi will end up winning the Tomokobowl by default. Mark my words.
>>184625170When will she confess??
>>184624881>>184624306>>184624200>>184624049>>184623207This pain, it will not heal.
>>184624881>>184623207>>184625359Please come back Tomo
>>184625292When her friends find out and make her.
>>184537753Is there really any genuine chance of a season 2?
>>184537753Wait a second... if she's Pineapple, then why does she have coconuts?
>>184614921She's probably one of the few examples I've ever seen in fiction for truly autistic behavior. People mistake their social inability as autism, but the sheer comprehension of that inability puts them on a league above actual spergs. Rather than inability, it's more like lack of direct experience in social situations. People go on about how they fuck up, but they realize they fucked up. The actual people with psychological problems don't. Tomoko is an example of a person who merely lacked social experience, but was actually considerate of the concept throughout the entire manga. She thinks heavily about what other people think of her. Then she eventually mellows out, realizes the world isn't out to get her, and that she should act more calmly in general. Yuri however just doesn't give a fuck. She's the type of person who doesn't greet people back, doesn't go through pleasantries, and doesn't quite realize when she's being a dick. Tomoko's problem was she had too much social awareness to the point it made her panic and fuck up. Yuri's problem is she has none at all. >>184616706Ogino ended up choosing her to help make the mishmash group of leftovers for the school trip so that initial impression might've been mistaken. She just seemed relatively normal to Tomoko who had absolutely no idea of her personality at that time. Between the girl who was definitely a part of another group and an outright delinquent, Yuri just seemed like a generic girl to her. In reality though she was a social outcast like Tomoko and Tomoko didn't realize it because social outcasts have no reason to know about other social outcasts generally.
lick the skin
>>184626354The manga is more popular than it's ever been by a long shot. It used to be more popular in America than Japan, now it's by far the other way around. If there were ever going to be a second season, now would be the time.
>>184626048 chapter when?
>>184614322>Nemo ChadWtf I like Kaguya's author even more now
What's Tomokos twitter
>>184626354Extremely unlikely, considering how the first season sold. I don't think manga sales are as much of a deciding factor as people say. A second season would also need to skip a whole lot of essential stuff of the manga to even get to the part when the manga starts getting really good, and it would also mostly be more of the same as season 1 was, which sold horribly.
>>184626433maybe she could be seen as a palm tree instead?
>>184618765Got sidelined for Nemo
>>184618765Yoshida must be taken in small doses, you can't handle too much of her.
the anime didn't portray tomoko very well, a second season is still a 2nd chance to get original content since now tomoko's popular
>>184628355We live in a different time, so who knows? And stranger things have gotten second seasons.>>184626354It has an okay chance.
>>184629416Unpopular opinion but I wasn't a fan of Tomoko's dyke va. The manga voice was better.
>>184628765All Yoshida needs to do is sideline Asuka. Nemo can stay.
>>184611403Asuka is trash.
>>184629850Tomoko's voice is perfect.
What's her end-game?
>>184630801Crashing this manga
>>184629530If we ever got a 2nd season, it would not only need to make the artstyle closer to the manga, they'd need to make it two cour so that they'd reach the Kyoto field trip at around episode 15 at the very least, and maybe finish around end of 2nd year or start of 3rd year. I don't think such a prospect is realistic, and I don't think if they don't do it like this, it is not worth it to even try.
makoto daikichi drew some kind of Ucchi yuri thing for valentines
>>184614892>to fucking try and steal the name WatamoteHow?
>>184614322There's this new yuri manga where the main characters looks just like Tomoko and Asuka.
>>184631767Really? What's it called?
>>184614892What ever happened in that manga? Did the main girl end up with the short haired rich girl? Or was it Senpai or someone else?
>>184631233>they'd need to make it two cour so that they'd reach the Kyoto field trip at around episode 15I feel like what would actually happen would be skipping to the Kyoto Trip either immediately or ASAP. Like by episode 3. Episodes 1 and 2 would focus on getting the most relevant information across, like Imae's moments not covered in the first season, actually who Nemo is, and a few other things. 3 is trip day 1, 4 is the rest, 5 is wrapup + going back to school. With that you've got 7 episodes to reach graduation/Imae leaving.
>>184618187It was actually pretty much a DMC2->DMC3* situation, I think. Before the trip, the manga had been getting less interesting for people due to the repetitive nature of it. I know I, at least, had dropped it quite a while before the trip, and was vaguely interested as the arc went on but mostly didn't really care. The scanlation had to have really sealed the deal though.(*note: DMC2 was such hot garbage that, although 3 was incredible and is often argued to be the best in the series, it had the weakest sales of the whole franchise because nobody was interested after that shitshow; not that Watamote was DMC2 level bad, just not as strong as later parts)
>>184631767I need a name
>>184631661The Japanese name for it is "Watashi Ga Motete Dousunda"Which can be shortened to "Watamote" the same way "Watashi ha MOTEnai no etc" gets shortened to Watamote.So for a while, people searching watamote would get clips from both mangas and later from both shows.
It's pretty clear that Watamote lost whatever identity it had when it dropped exploring the mind of a social reject unwilling to accept it. But I think it's equally clear that the decision will be supported by anons who want more highschool yuri girls to masturbate to and meme about.
>>184626777when Ucchi knows about Tomo's brother, she will be straight again
>>184632832Next you'll say you didn't actually read and only heard it's like this from someone who read the threads on 4chan.
>>184632832While she isn't dealing with crushing loneliness or isolation, she's still the girl who survived that experience, which not only puts a unique spin on all her interactions (half due to perspective of being a former loner, and half do to her total inexperience in all these situations) The manga also has set up plenty of girls in the series beginning to suffer the same isolation tomoko went through in one way or another which is either to have Tomoko help them out of it (Nemo during the Disney Trip, or with Shizuku) or is a result of Tomoko's action like she passed a cursed down to them (Ucchi and Minami).

>>184632832Once every thread!
>>184634105Yes every thread until you like it
>>184632888Just accept it and cheer for the gay girl.
>>184598967I'm gonna reddit post at you because of your shitty chart. It's even coated in /v/ spit. But hey, you deserve it.
>>184603764Yes, she is.
>>184636038Is Tomoko already 18?
>>184636173They're about to go off to collage, and Nemo specifically mentions that she's 18 when they go to the porno shop.
>>184630848how many people will be alive?
>>184636173I don't think so but Komi is 16 at most since she was 15 at the start of her manga and now she's a second year. Mokocchi was also 15 at the start of Watamote but she's a third year, as you know. She's at the very least 17. I do believe she's from February.

What do Watamotefags think of Kumamiko?
>>184635520:3 I'm melting. So cute! CUTE!
>>184636450Machi didn't deserve all that bullying.
>>184635520>Mangaka gets so frustrated with another author's ship-baiting that she just writes their own mangaThis is a healthy industry.
>>184637070It never was healthy. It's why it's so good. It's like cultural bacon!
>>184632832Shut the fuck up. If you don't like the direction of the manga then don't read it. God you "I hate that she's changed and wants to be a better person" fags are almost as insufferable as the yuri fags that think Tomoko, Asuka, Yuri and Nemo are all gay instead of just Ucchi.
>>184635520Futari Monologue is also pretty inspired by Watamote (and the author does a lot of Watamote fan art)https://dynasty-scans.com/series/futari_monologue
>>184638030Stop with all these yuri mangas or I'll read my life away! Don't stop, keep em coming
>>184637070Just giving the people what they want.
Is there an irony to the fact that a lot of isolated lesbian girls would probably relate to Tomoko and other Watamote characters a lot, but will never actually read watamote because they assume the Yuri aspect is just Otaku bait?
>>184636343So it's Tomoko's birthday soon
>>184638641No, because they would probably read it anyway despite seeming to be “otaku bait”.
