There are many examples wherein anime adaptations have become the reason for the skyrocketing sales of the mangas they are inspired from. WataMote is one such name, which is why WataMote Season 2 becomes an intriguing concern.
This show brings the slice-of-life genre to us with a dark palette. WataMote is short for “Watashi ga Motenai no wa Dō Kangaetemo Omaera ga Warui!”, which can be translated to “No Matter How I Look at It, It’s You Guys’ Fault I’m Not Popular!” in Japanese. It is based on the manga series of the same name penned by two authors under the alias Nico Tanigawa.
About WataMote Season 2
As unusual as the name of the series is, it does an excellent job at highlighting a very significant aspect of life. Communication is the basis of our society and its functioning. Those who fail at it are often deemed “socially inept” or “socially awkward”. Similarly, this anime brings to life a character who finds it hard to socialize and make friends. Moreover, the surrounding atmosphere of the High School adds on to the pressure. The show presents our hard-hitting reality by infusing dark humour.
There is hardly any show like this one. So, let’s get right into the details of a possible WataMote Season 2.
The Official Announcement
Reality must be accepted despite how sad it may be, which brings us to the standing status of WataMote Season 2. There has been no comment regarding the second season of WataMote. For now, we’re in the dark as much as you are. If there is any update on the renewal, we will update you instantly.

WataMote Season 2 Release Date
The first season of the series ran from 8 July to 23 September in 2013. After that, an OVA special was released in 2014 to support the sales of the 7th volume of the manga. A spin-off was also produced with the title “TomoMote” or “How I Look at It, It’s You Guys’ Fault My Friend’s Not Popular”. However, the creators have been pretty quiet about the WataMote series, which makes us wonder if it has been brought to its end with the first season. Nothing can be assumed as of now. Let’s wait a bit longer to find out more. WataMote Season 2 will be coming soon?
