Watashi no Tomodachi ga Motenai no wa Dō Kangaetemo Omaera ga Warui.

No Matter How I Look at It, It's You Guys' Fault That My Friend's Not Popular.



In school, Tomoko has a blank and stunned stare. Kotomi greets and sees Tomoko staring into the distance, Yū explains that Tomoko's dad discovered that Tomoko used his credit card to buy a CD, which makes Kotomi conclude that if Tomoko is so messed up over her father's response, "the CD was definitely something weird."

Leaving Her BeEdit

During PE Tomoko remains shocked and useless as Yū table-tennis which annoys Kotomi. Kotomi scold Tomoko; however, Tomoko explains that the CD was one about a yandere boy CD: Super Loving Boyfriend who Traps and Bad-Mouths You After Sex. Sweating, Kotomi advises Yū to "give her some time."

Won't Leave Her BeEdit

By lunch, Tomoko has recovered much of her composure. She confesses that, in the long run, her parents discovering she bought the CD is not really "such a big deal." Kotomi is stunned that Tomoko can eat given that both of her parents found out.

Won't Leave Her BeEdit

Yū notes that her mother hands out the disciple and asks Kotomoi if her situation is the same. Kotomi notes that her father died when she was young. Yū feels embarrassed, while Tomoko bluntly asks if he committed suicide. Kotomi, containing her anger, notes that her father died when she was five. Tomoko surprisingly states that her parents discovering that she has an "18+ CD" does not really compare to Kotomi dealing with not having a father. Inwardly, Kotomi notes that whenever she talked about losing her father, listeners would feel awkward. The fact that Tomoko can talk about it so openly stuns her.
