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 returns to Tomoko running the three-legged race, with Tomoko being completely overcome with the fact she is running with a boy. Afterwards, she enjoys watching another event and even quietly cheers. Throughout it all, she maintains her wide-eyed and smiling spaced-out expression, which she realizes when she finds herself eating lunch on the playing field. She concludes that interacting with two guys has mentally drained her, and she decides to go stare at some girls.
She goes to the gym where Ucchi and some other girls practice cheerleading for the afternoon session. Ucchi decides to stay behind to further practice her routine and soon notices Tomoko watching her as she finishes her lunch. Tomoko, noticing the Ucchi's short cheerleader's skirt, wonders if Ucchi is wearing "spats," a woman's undergarment that extends to to the thighs. As she lowers her head to look, Ucchi sees her looking up her skirt. Tomoko catches a brief glimpse of Ucchi's spats, while Ucchi inwardly freaks out. Some of her friends notice her discomfort and come to her. Having caught a glimpse of Ucchi's spats and seeing her friends coming in, Tomoko decides to leave. Ucchi interprets Tomoko leaving as Tomoko only having interest in her. She believes Tomoko will stalk her at her cheerleader competition but vows not to "lose" to her.
Ucchi notices that Tomoko was absent in the morning competition but is present during the afternoon. Ranting at Tomoko in her mind, Ucchi concludes Tomoko wants to look at her body and, inwardly, challenges her to look all she wants. However, Tomoko is watching Nemoto cheer, then the other cheerleaders including Asuka Katō, crouching to see if they are wearing spats. Ucchi inwardly seethes over her belief that Tomoko is not only interested in her.
