Why was Watamote so unpopular in Nippon?
>>
because it's a terrible show. i enjoyed the manga but the anime was fucking terrible
>>
>>100810912
Because they relate too much with Tomoko.

Of course, this is the exact same reason it's popular here.
>>
>>100810912
It was shit.

I dropped it 5mins into the first episode.
>>
It's your fault.

I'm surprised it got an anime at all.

/a/ is not a collective consciousness. The reason why popularity seems to go this way is because the people who hate it are able to become more vocal once the primary fanbase for something dies down.

I actually thought it was pretty decent, but it really grossed me out. Episode 5 was when I dropped, if I remember correctly. It's definitely true that it being animated upped the cringeworthiness by a lot, and so I think I'll stick to the manga. I might try listening to the dub if that actually comes, and hopefully it will be so bad it's good.

Watamote didn't do that bad. It had one of the lowest production budgets of the season and it sold in the lower middle range. Not every anime is made with the intention of being a large hit. This anime was produced with the knowledge that it was a niche of a niche. It was a financial success.

Only /a/ is retarded enough to think that a show has to sell 10,000 BDs to be a success.

Japan does have pretty shit taste in humor, though. Watch any harem comedy.

There is very little comedic anime that I can actually watch.
