The hot title that made every unpopular person cry is getting its long awaited anime!
The popular super-negative comic series from SQUARE ENIX's “GANGAN ONLINE” is getting an anime! A daily life comedy about poor unpopular girl who thought she would become popular once she joined high school.
The protagonist, Kuroki Tomoko, thought she would naturally become popular once she became a “high school girl”, but reality was different…
Two months have passed since she entered high school, but she's already faced with her cruel reality--she's barely even spoken to her classmates, let alone found a boyfriend! Tomoko panics at her situation and decides to take action to become popular. But… she doesn't stand out in class, she's extremely shy, and bad at communicating with others so she has to start by talking to someone other than her family first…
The unpopular girl, “Kuroki Tomoko” fights her hardest to become popular, but…
Does a bright future await Tomoko?! The struggles of an unpopular girl start here!!

She thought she would become popular if she became a high school girl, but two months have passed since she entered high school and she hasn't made any friends let alone a boyfriend, and she's forced to face the harshness of reality. She doesn't stand out, she's extremely shy, and she barely speaks with others, but she often says extreme things in her head. Is there any future in which she can be popular?!
VA: Yūichi Nakamura
Tomoko's little brother. He's in middle school and a regular on the soccer team as their forward. Unlike Tomoko, he has lots of friends and he's popular with girls. He's annoyed by Tomoko's inconsiderate behavior, and often responds coldly towards her, but he's also a nice person.
VA: Kana Hanazawa
Tomoko's classmate in middle school. She shared interests with Tomoko, so they got along well, but she advanced to a different high school. In middle school she was plain, and an otaku, but now she's a typical high schooler…
