Media Factory began streaming a promotional video for the television anime adaptation of creative team Nico Tanigawa's Watashi ga Motenai no wa Dou Kangaete mo Omaera ga Warui! (No Matter How You Think About It, It's Your Fault I'm Not Popular/WataMote) manga series on Thursday. The video features the song "Dō Kanagaete mo Watashi wa Warukunai" (No Matter How You Think About It, I'm Not Wrong) by the main character Tomoko Kuroki (as voiced by Izumi Kitta):
The slice-of-life gag comedy centers around Tomoko Kuroki, a girl who thought she would be popular when she went to high school. However, she was in for a rude awakening, for cruel reality is not like the otome games (romance games for female players) she played.
Tanigawa launched the manga in Square Enix's Gangan Online website in 2011, and Square Enix shipped the third compiled book volume of the manga last December. A four-panel spin-off manga launched in January, and Yen Press announced last month that it licensed the original manga for release in North America.
The anime will debut on July 8 on the TV Tokyo station.
