Watashi ga Motenai no wa dō Kangaetemo Omaera ga Warui!
Tomoko and Yū meet up around the "MP Outlet Park," with the manga cutting back to a few days prior when they made plans. In the flashback, Yū says that it's Kotomi's birthday next week and asks if they could go shopping to get her a present. Tomoko agrees, but she secretly believes that this is a waste of money and time since she imagines she could just wrap up Tomoki's trash and Kotomi would be happy.
Cutting back to the present, Yū asks Tomoko what Kotomi would like as a gift. Tomoko responds that Kotomi likes "baseball and little brothers," then confirms to Yū that Kotomi likes Tomoki. Yū muses that if they date and get married, Tomoko will become Kotomi's "oneechan" or "big sister," which prompts Tomoki to vow to kill her if she ever suggests that again.
Yū quickly changes the subject by suggesting that maybe Kotomi would not mind something girly. Tomoko suggest a store that guy celebrities buy gifts for their girls, but Yū seems embarrassed. Walking with Miyazaki and an unnamed friend behind them, Ucchi spots Tomoko and immediately assumes Tomoko is stalking her. She notices Tomoko is with Yū, that Yū has a very similar hairstyle as she has, and they are in front of a lingerie store. Tomoko teases Yū to hold up a set of bra and panties to see if it will fit, while a blushing Yū protests that she and Kotomi are different sizes. Tomoko persists claiming it will help her form a mental image. Inwardly, Tomoko concludes that since she is bored she might as well "sexually harass Yū-chan a bit."
The watching Ucchi interprets this as Tomoko making someone who looks like her try out underwear. Tomoko happens to pick up a pair of panties that Ucchi recognizes are similar to the ones Tomoko "stole" from her during the trip. By the way she is holding them, Ucchi believes Tomoko is trying to see how they look on her. Tomoko notices Ucchi and decides to leave since she does not want to be near people from her class. She suggests to Yū they simply buy something practical like a towel set. Yū demands to know what the point was of her holding up bras and panties.
Later, as Tomoko soaks in the tub, her mom calls out to get her laundry. Tomoko learns that her mom included the towels she bought for Kotomi. On Kotomi's birthday, she meets with Tomoko and Yū at Star Turrys Coffee. Yū gives Kotomi an intricate hair-pin. When Tomoko gives her the towels, Kotomi seems nonplussed until the scent of them reminds her of the scent of Tomoki's futon. Kotomi accepts them with starry-eyed happiness. Tomoko finds this creepy while Yū thinks that while Tomoko pretends to hate Kotomi, she understands her better than she does.
