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!

SynopsisEdit

While Tomoko enjoys listening to a yandere guy CD, she is interrupted by an unexpected phone call from Naruse, an old friend from middle school. Yū invites her to hang out tomorrow at a cafe. Tomoko recalls her friend as unremarkable and not a very good student who had to attend a "mediocre" high school.

When they meet at a cafe the following day, Tomoko is surprised by how different her friend looks. Yū started wearing contacts, styled her hair and dyed her hair, wears a miniskirt, and even has perfume on. Inwardly, Tomoko wonders if girls actually smell like Yū. To Tomoko, Yū's drink sounds perverted. Yū admits to Tomoko that she changed her appearance when she entered high school since she felt out of place. She then asks if Tomoko still watches anime. She becomes excited when Tomoko sheepishly admits she does since Yū could not find anyone who would talk about it in her school. Tomoko realizes that Yū is still the same person inside.

They talk about anime and later end up hanging out at the arcade. Nearing the end of their outing, Tomoko notices that Yū seems a little sad so she tries to cheer her up by telling her how her own high school experience has not been as fulfilling as she would have hoped and that Yū should do her best as well. Overjoyed by Tomoko’s support, Yū responds by telling her she was feeling a little down because of a fight she had with her boyfriend and that as long as Tomoko is in her life she will be okay. Tomoko is distraught by the news of Yū having a boyfriend and starts ignoring Yū by putting on her headphones and continue listening to her yandere guy CD.
