No Matter How I Look at It, It’s You Guys' Fault I’m Not Popular!
Title: Because I'm Not Popular, I'll Enjoy Valentine's Day (Part 3)
Published: 20 April 2017
Divided into two "Hit & Run" sections, Tomoko secretly gives chocolates to Yoshida and Ucchi. The two pieces she leaves in Yoshida's desk retain their "poop-shape" and generated the expected response. The two pieces she leaves for Ucchi are broken up into small pieces which Ucchi later reconstructs to discover their original shape. Despite her disgust with the shape and Tomoko, Ucchi does eat the chocolate.
The day after Valentine's Day Yuri and a reserved Tomoko give Mako chocolates in thanks for the chocolates she gave Yuri the day previously. The chocolates she gives Yuri have been broken into pieces. While Yuri compliments Tomoko's chocolates, Tomoko seems to concentrate on Ucchi standing with friends on the other side of the classroom. For her part, Ucchi seems to notice Tomoko staring at her.
Hit & Run #1 Yuri asks Tomoko if she will give Yoshida some of the chocolates she made. Tomoko fears Yoshida will get mad seeing the poop-shapped chocolates, but Yuri reassures her. Tomoko decides to leave a bag of two in Yoshida's desk. Yoshida later comes to her desk, nonchalantly sits, then notices the bag with the expected reaction. Yuri explains that they are chocolate, are a gift, and were given as thanks for being her friend. To Yoshida's demand to know what kind of friend "gives someone shit-shapped chocolate?!" Yuri can only admit that Tomoko is "a bit of an idiot."Hit & Run #2 Tomoko stands outside Ucchi's shoe locker. She places a bag of chocolates in the locker then leaves. Ucchi waits hidden from her. At home, Ucchi reads the simple note, "Thanks for the chocolate," from Tomoko wonders why Tomoko did not give them to her in person. Deeming Tomoko a "creep" and "gross," Ucchi initially decides not try them since, "she probably put something weird in my chocolate." Curiosity gets the better of her, and she tries one. She finds it "disgustingly sweet," and when she returns the piece to the bag she notices that they appear to fit together. She recognizes the original shape in nervous horror but still tries another piece.
