>required reading is watamote
Only part that seems odd. If you're doing a course on anime history then this would be one of the least likely to end up on the list. You would have to track anime industry trends, require to read stuff like Dragon Ball, Kochira, and what not (definers for Shonen Jump and a genre definer).

Watamote is nothing new or special in any way.

It's actually part of a program that allows students to teach courses about subjects that interest them. Some student has an idea for a class they want to teach, they just have to go and get it approved and that's that.

It's effectively less of a "class" and more of a club at the school this anon goes to.
