私がモテないのはどう考えてもお前らが悪い!

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

The chapter is divided up into short sections.

A Good MorningEdit

Tomoko wakes up early and gymnastically leaps from her bed feeling good since she went to bed early. "Today is going to be a good day," she concludes. She eats breakfast with her brother as she pesters him with questions. He mentally notes that today is going to be a bad day because of her.

Dual WieldingEdit

As she leaves, Tomoko is told by her mother to take two umbrellas with her, one for herself and the other for Tomoki. She heads out to school but then gets distracted by an inchworm while crossing a waterway. She starts practicing sword draw at the hanging inchworm with her brother’s umbrella only to miss and fling it into the water.

Zero ShikiEdit

During school, Tomoko can see Hina's bra in the light through her shirt. When school is over, Tomoko sees no signs of rain so she throws her umbrella at Tomoki.

ExistenceEdit

At her train station, Tomoko decided to go to a manga cafe to look at books. While on an elevator she notices a girl and a boy together. After everyone leaves, the boy starts to caress the girl, but she stops him when she notices Tomoko in the corner of the elevator behind them.

VisibleEdit

In her nook at the cafe reading a manga, Tomoko overhears the same couple playfully arguing as they get affectionate. Tomoko inwardly rants about how everything is recorded by hidden cameras but still sneaks to take a peek into the couples cubicle while being recorded.

Afterwards, she goes to the train station and sends a message to Tomoki telling him to bring an umbrella because it started to rain. She squats down in front of the ticket machine to make it impossible for him to get through without her noticing him. Nevertheless, he walks past her.

One DayEdit

Tomoko stops him and playfully asks him if he is being "tsundere." He inwardly regrets that she saw him. As they walk home together, Tomoko boasts about how good it was that she brought him an umbrella. When he asks why she did not bring her own, she points to the umbrella in the river and says it is his: "thank me." She then describes what must have been a terrible day for him made better by her.

Referbacks Edit

  • During lunch, Tomoko is seen eating lunch in the spot between the north and south building, a reference to chapter 45.

TriviaEdit

  • Hina Nemoto wears a pink bra.

Cultural ReferencesEdit

  • Tomoko uses the umbrella to play swords. The two styles she imitates are the “Gatotsu” from the manga and anime Rurōni Kenshin and “Nagareboshi” from Shigurui.
  • The art of drawing and cutting with a sword is Iaijutsu.

QuotesEdit

  • "Do you know any shame from being seen, you degenerate harlots?" – Tomoko
  • "You probably got ignored by girls and got kicked in the balls or something so you day sucked, right? You're in luck! Thanks to me, it just got a whole lot better!" – Tomoko
