Kuroki Tomoko is a super popular female schoolgirl, with 50 years experience in dating and more than 100 boys - but just in the dating video games. In real life is a closed and shy person who comes within the definition of mojyo (a repulsive woman). However, when school is not doing as she expected and is not as popular as she thought it, she decides to look herself in the mirror after a few years of not doing it and realizes something disturbing.Written by
This show is somewhat difficult to rate and recommend, mostly because it has very specific and mature qualities, rather than being straight up exciting like some expect out of anime. It's about a bitter, socially awkward 15 year old girl that tries her hardest to fit in and become more sociable, but her fear and misunderstanding of people cause her to fail at it over and over again.
If you are the person that gets a lot of second hand embarrassment from witnessing awkward situations you are in for quite a ride. Feeling strongly related to the heroine, personally, this is what attracted me to the show so much. If it can make you feel things, than you know it is real, relevant, and it is refreshing to experience it from a third point of view. The people who made the show understand deeply what it means to be a shut-in.
If that sounded scary, don't worry! The whole show is done in a light comedy tone. If it wasn't, watching it would be downright unbearable. There are a ton of hilarious references to other popular anime.
I would strongly recommend it to people who experienced some degree of social anxiety while growing up, or people who want to understand it better.
