Cute...she does have her moments but more often than not she's really creepy looking. Though she's not as fugly and creepy to us readers as she is perceived to be to other people in the manga.

She's not creepy looking! Look at my avi. That is how she should look to you. Else, you are looking at her wrong =02.

The point is that she is supposed to be someone who in real life you would never find cute or beautiful at the first sight. That is what she is representing looks-wise.
... no matter how awkward, if she was depicted as cute she would already have many social contacts just by people approaching her.

I did say she does have her moments of cuteness...but at least to me they are kinda rare.

Yeah I agree, in real life you would find her really weird and akward at first sight. Once you get to know her you'd probably find her cute side

Comics and animation are pretty binary in terms of attractiveness -- a character's either cute or a total gonk. The manga-ka made Tomoko as un-moe as possible without making her off-putting, but she's still on the attractive side. In real life a girl with hair going all over the place and dark circles under her eyes wouldn't be cute, but in a manga she is.

Really, even if she sometimes appears "cute", I can't view her that way because its obvious the author wants her to be viewed as someone you would basically avoid and find unattractive. Its done pretty much to build on top of her shut in personality.

i believe her appearance is one of the reasons why she is so unpopular, because most people in real worlds will also not find a girl with such an appearance to be attractive,it functions the same way in the manga

I think a large part of Tomoko's problem is the way Japanese high schools don't change classes -- she's pretty much stuck with the same thirty people for the entire year. If there's no one like Yuu in the class, she's going to be the lone oddball sitting in the corner reading. If she were in an American high school where she had to change classes every period, she'd be exposed to a lot more people and have a better chance of encountering someone like Yuu, who in turn might know someone else with similar interests whom they can get together with at lunch and after school.

The fact that she can be cute is an important story point. If she were "fugly" and never had a friend or a cousin who looked up to her then we could just shrug and dismiss her. Instead we see that her problems are all caused by her own inappropriate behavior and social awkwardness.

Many anime heroines (as well as anime watchers) have an active inner life where their imaginations run wild. Most, after a nudge in the ribs, go on to live and achieve in the real world. It becomes a problem when she imagines that being a hostess in a bar will be easier than delivering a message to a classmate.

Hopefully the mangaka will allow her to accomplish something in her first year of high school, though not so much as to make her second year boring.

I'm also thinking that the end of the first year would be a good stopping point for an anime adaptation, so maybe we'll get an announcement in the next few months.
Considering volume 3 is coming out in the middle of anime announcement season even though they've had enough material since October, I'm betting there'll be some news on the cover.

Media Factory bought the domain watamote.jp (WataMote being the abbreviated title for the series in Japanese). So far as I know Media Factory has no connection to Gangan Online which publishes WataMote, so if they're getting ready to launch a site for it, they're probably involved with an anime adaptation. On top of that, Gangan Online has a countdown that will end on December 22, which happens to be the day volume 3 of the manga goes on sale.

So all signs point to an anime but we won't know for sure until a week from Saturday.
