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!
This chapter covers Tomoko’s entire winter break. The night of New Year’s Tomoko gets a text message from Yuu wishing her well. The next morning, Tomoko receives a card from an otome game character she forgot she ordered earlier in the year.
Later, Tomoko counts all the New Year’s money she has received, totaling in 5k yen. She uses it to slap Tomoki across the face, who retaliates by putting her in an armlock.
Ki come to visit and Tomoko, in an attempt to improve their relationship, tries to bribe her with 1k. Ki refuses the money and even lectures her. She later takes Tomoko to a shrine where they make their New Year’s wishes. Ki reveals that she wished for Tomoko’s happiness, making her feel bad.
During the night, Tomoko and Ki share a room. Tomoko overhears Ki speak in her sleep and confirms her suspicion that Ki sees her as a pitiful puppy.
Some time after Ki leaves, Tomoko uses her massager on a poster of a shirtless character from one of her otome games. Soon after, her father walks in on her.

- The massager Tomoko uses is a novelty item she won from a raffle in chapter 18.5.
- Tomoko’s father walks in on her with a massager in hand and a poster of a shirtless guy, which is very similar to what happened in chapter 18.5.
- Tomoko had a suspicion that Ki looked at her as if she were a pitiful puppy, which is a reference to chapter 16.
- Ki is 3 years younger than Tomoko.
- Tomoko receives 5,000 yen from her relatives which is about 50 US dollars.
- By Tomoko's expression of superiority, it's hinted that Tomoki received less money than her.
- “If you're not a worthless god, I'd like to see you try and make me happy… if you can't manage that, at least make everyone as unhappy as me. If you can't, it's fine I guess… but I'll despise you forever…” – Tomoko
