No Matter How I Look at It, It’s You Guys' Fault I’m Not Popular!
It’s the start of the new semester and Tomoko has a different assigned seat located towards the middle of the classroom. She is surrounded by Kiyota and his friends, Okada, Hina Nemoto, and Suzuki. She becomes distressed over the new seating arrangement and ends up daydreaming until lunch. During lunch, someone takes Tomoko's chair so she decides to have her lunch elsewhere. She ends up finding a corridor with a bunch of desks where she can eat in peace.
A week later, the class is deciding on a theme for the culture festival and Tomoko daydreams about how terribly her middle school haunted house theme went. She leaves while the rest of her class continues to discuss the themes.
The next day, when she goes back to the corridor, she finds all the desks gone. She ends up not eating her lunch and passes out during PE, which gets her sent to the nurse’s office. After she wakes up, she goes to an empty classroom to have her lunch and recounts how she wants to find a place for herself.
