No Matter How I Look at It, It’s You Guys' Fault I’m Not Popular!
Title: Because I'm Not Popular, I'll Imagine My New Game+
Published: 02 March 2017
Tomoko compares a "new game plus” in video games to what her high school life would be if she were held back for a year.
Tomoko enters Tomoki’s room and starts rambling about video games. She mentions how some games can be replayed with bonus material or give a new game plus option on the second play-through. Tomoko deduces that she can live life with a "new game plus” option if she gets held back a year in school. By retaining her memories of the previous year, she can nail her introduction, ace her exams, and be able to get along with student due to her mental superiority.
After realizing she should try to make the most out of a new game plus, Tomoko begins to imagine scenarios where she behaves more like a protagonist. This includes a confrontation with a girl she surpasses in exam scores, holding superior knowledge, making friends with little effort, and being the center of attention among her peers.
Tomoko comes out of her imagination and makes the suggestion that Tomoki could even be in the same class as her as a previously locked party member. She furthers states how they can go on the school trip together and immediately stops talking about it when her brother gives her a death glare.
