Watashi ga Motenai no wa dō Kangaetemo Omaera ga Warui!
No Matter How I Look at It, It’s You Guys' Fault I’m Not Popular!
Mid-term exams are starting and Tomoko thinks that the other students will pay attention to her if she does well, but gives up as soon as she hears that they don’t care enough to study. On her way home, Tomoko's homeroom teacher says good-bye to her but she is unable to make any sort of reply due to not having spoken to anyone in so long. Once home, Tomoko coerces her little brother into speaking to her for an hour each day until she manages to find a boyfriend.
The next day, she manages to say a nervous good-bye to her homeroom teacher. Feeling successful at having had a “totally natural conversation with somebody," Tomoko decides to buy some ice cream on the way home. At the checkout, Tomoko gets nervous when she realizes the cashier is a cute guy and only manages to whisper two things to him, one of which he does not hear. Outside the store, Tomoko is amazed that she had a “normal conversation with a cute guy."
