"Since I'm Not Popular, I'll Have a Good Dream" (モテないし、ちょっといい夢見るわ Motenai shi, Chotto Ii Yume Miru wa?) is the fourth episode of the anime adaption of WataMote. The episode was written by Takayo Ikami and directed by Yoshinobu Tokumoto. It aired in Japan on July 29, 2013.


Tomoko Kuroki tries to follow a guide to have an erotic dream, but only winds up having nightmares. Later, she dreams in class during a quiz. She hears fellow classmates discuss being touched by strangers on trains--chiken. She calls Yū to ask if she has ever been molested, then pretends she has been. On a train, she feels something grab her in her nethers, and she fears she is being molested only to find that she was just snagged on another girl's naginata, a long martial arts weapon with a curved "blade" used predominately by women. Afterwards, Tomoko asks Yū Naruse to help her shop for some underwear, though she later ends up embarrassing herself in class by mistaking her newly bought panties as a handkerchief. She soon feels better after winning a personal massager from a raffle ticket obtained when buying a BL game. When she returns home, she starts to play the BL game, uses the massager on her neck, and soon falls asleep. Soon after, her father comes back home with a cake and goes up to ask her if she wants some cake, but when he opens her door, he finds her sleeping peacefully with the still running massager in her hand and the BL game paused. Her father does not scold her, but instead he switches off the massager, gently carries her to bed, turns off the TV, and leaves the room.
