Hahah Watamote. I have yet to finish it. It is quite interesting. She is not that likeable, she thinks lowly of others and she is so bad speaking her mind that things come out wrong.
The ideas is that this chick wants to use the new school as a platform to launch herself as a popular girl. However because she sucks at social interaction and can't relate to her peers she usually is ignored or found out doing something that without context just makes her look like a weirdo. She constantly projects her bad luck on everything and everyone else. She goes to extreme lengths to try to achieve results and her imagination flies wild making her lose grip of reality at times.

Something that draws me to it is how it portraits our darkest moments through her. For example her chain of thoughts are very relatable.
Spoiler :
one of my favourite parts is when after school she goes to pick her umbrella and is not where she usually leaves it, so she start getting angry while thinking about how rude of whoever took it and how he must be happily skipping around not thinking about the poor girl he's leaving to walk under the fierce rain. Her thoughts keep growing louder and more violent and then ... she realises that she just put it in another place that day. Whoops.

The thing is that there is not real progression. The episodes are self contained and when it seems someone did something nice or something nice happened, by the end of the episode reveals a twist that changes things, usually something she overlooked.

Some people enjoy the humour and some other just feel disturbed or bad for the poor girl and cannot find the point in the series. I guess watching a few episodes is enough to decide if you'd find it enjoyable or not.

No point using an image signature if it will only appear as a link, so have this boring text instead.

Baccon looks promising.
Just think of me when you find a violent anime, human.

Sure xD

Did I mention an anime called Genocyber to you? It does feature violence galore with some inspired artistic choices here and there. The story is nothing much though. I don't know if you like older anime though.

I remember seeing an anime human where a murderer places his victim bodies in fountains and other things as "art". Are you by any chance referring to that?

You are talking about Psycho Pass, right? No I was not referring to it.

There was a girl in that anime who killed people, used plastination on their bodies and then arranged them in some sort of grotesque manner to display in public. I thing there was a fountain scene, but I am not sure.
