By age 15, Kuroki Tomoko has already dated dozens of boys and she's easily the most popular girl around. The problem is that neither scenario is real, and her perfect world exists only in dating games and romance shows. Unfortunately for Kuroki, the things that work in games rarely play out the same way in reality. And the sad truth is she gets tongue tied just talking to people, and throughout middle school she's only had one actual friend. There's not much gain and plenty of pain ahead, but even if it happens again and again, there's always someone else to blame in WATAMOTE NO MATTER HOW I LOOK AT IT, IT'S YOU GUYS FAULT I'm NOT POPULAR.
