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!
Early in the morning,Tomoko’s mother informs her that her cousin, Ki is visiting this evening. The news makes Tomoko anxious and she recalls how she made up a bunch of things like having a boyfriend and being an adult doing perverted things. She realizes that Ki might be old to fool now and must figure out a way to keep up the ruse. Tomoko calls Yuu for guidance but she is unable to speak too long since she’s on her way to the beach with her friends.
Tomoko ultimately has to depend on herself and her first order of business is to get more “bitch-like” clothes so she heads to a store. At the store, she takes notice of three elementary school girls and she resorts to asking for their help in choosing an outfit.
Back at home, Tomoko puts on the outfit the girls picks out and realizes she still needs something else to look like a “bitch.” She gives herself a kiss mark and has an eureka moment: if she is covered in kiss marks, Ki-chan will think that she’s doing it all the time with her boyfriend. In an attempt to make more kiss marks on herself, she comes to the conclusion that she doesn’t have enough suction power to actually do it, but upon seeing her mother carrying the vacuum cleaner, she gets the idea of using the vacuum cleaner on herself. Her mother checks up on her later and forces her to cover up. Ki arrives afterward and notices a slap mark on Tomoko’s face.
