Episode 54 of Key Frames, a podcast about anime. Ben, Andy, Duncan, and Jeff emerge from their bedrooms and basements to spook everyone with their opinions on anime. They heap disdain on Carole & Tuesday and the new Baki, no doubt driving many fans of those shows away, and then turn to this episode's topic, creepy loner girls. True, there aren't exactly a wealth of examples of the character archetype, but it gives them the opportunity to talk about WataMote and The Wallflower, so it's all good.
