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!
Tomoko, Kotomi, and Yuu meet up at a cafe, where Tomoko and Kotomi give Yuu gifts. Kotomi gives a souvenir from the field trip, while Tomoko gives Yuu a picture of a dolphin she was pressured into buying in Akihabara. While talking about the field trip, Kotomi overhears Sayaka and Akari talk about Tomoki.
Tomoko notices the two girls, and mentions that she has seen Akari at her house before. Kotomi spills her drink all over herself and asks Tomoko for more information. At first Kotomi feels proud that she has been in Tomoki's room while Akari hasn't, but Tomoko promptly bursts her bubble by lying and saying they have sex in the entryway instead. Kotomi calls her out on that obvious bluff, but is still quite flustered nevertheless.
Akari notices the commotion coming from Tomoko's table and recognizes Kotomi. Kotomi heads off to the bathroom to wash up, and Akari steps in soon after. Kotomi asks about Akari's relationship with Tomoki, which leads Akari to believe that they've met before. Akari mistakes Kotomi for Tomoko, and introduces herself as Tomoki's classmate. Kotomi finds out Akari likes Tomoki romantically, and lies that he prefers older women but soon takes it back and says she might still have a chance.
Kotomi later goes back to the table, ashamed that Akari believes she is Tomoko and embarrassed that she lied to the younger girl.
The next day, Akari sees Tomoko give Tomoki some food and gets jealous, believing Tomoko to be a romantic rival.
