Watashi no Tomodachi ga Motenai no wa Dō Kangaetemo Omaera ga Warui.
No Matter How I Look at It, It's You Guys' Fault That My Friend's Not Popular.
As the higurashi cry, Tomoko lies on her bed and relishes that she has done nothing but slack off for three days. She decides she should do something, and settles on visiting Yokado, "the nearest one."
Tomoko looks at collections of beetles on sale. She wonders as she looks at one if she could breed them and spend her life at home. Later, in the food court, she enjoys shaved ice and deems that and looking at beetles are all that is required for a fulfilling summer's day.
Tomoko goes to the bookstore before coming home but sees Kotomi reading there. Tomoko tries to avoid her, but Kotomi sees her and pretends not to see Tomoko. Tomoko inwardly rages at this.
Yū suddenly appears and greets Tomoko. She then notices Kotomi and asks if the two went shopping together. Both awkwardly pretend they did not notice the other.
Kotomi asks Yū what she came, and Yū responds that she came with her mother to shop. Kotomi states she came to read then watch fireworks. She then "reminds" Yū and Tomoko that the Chiba Lotte Marines have fireworks between the 5th and 7th innings. Both Yū and Tomoko have no idea what she is talking about. Kotomi continues that this is the sixth time she has come to see the fireworks from the roof this summer break. She then explains that she can watch the game from her phone and then enjoy the fireworks. While Tomoko tries to maintain a polite smile, Tomoko feels that even her summer has been going better than Kotomi's.
In order of appearance:
- As noted in Chapter 16, while Tomoko has had some bad experiences and dreams with "bug" in both TomoMote and "WataMote," she also finds them fascinating and convinces Yū to keep a beetle and Kotomi to keep a centipede.
- Kotomi maintains her trendy wardrobe outside of class.
- "Aw yeah! I saw some beetles and now I'm eating shaved ice. It like practically everything required to have a fulfilling summer day." - Tomoko
