No Matter How I Look at It, It's You Guys' Fault That My Friend's Not Popular.
A Taste of the Season
During the Fall, the girls rake leaves outside a school building. When Yū remarks about the change of season, Kotomi notes that people gave out "free saury" in her neighborhood. Yū gives a quick review of favorite seasonal foods. Tomoko happily suggests that since it is fall they should go to a fast-food restaurant and get "chicken nuggets". An irritated Kotomi protests that "chicken nuggets" are not in the spirit of Fall, and she is not that hungry.
Tomoko admits that she has never actually had fast food. She then speculates on what fast food must be. Yū changes the subject to a hamburger place she and her mom would visit when Yū was in elementary school. She thought them really good, and the place claimed their meat came from 100% domestically grown beef. Unfortunately, news leaked that the place used foreign beef which forced it to shut down. Yū concludes that the hamburgers were bad.
Tomoko returns them to the subject of Fall foods by asking them if they have ever had matsutake mushrooms. Yū has not, but Kotomi has. She recommends them as tasting "really high class," but from her description, Tomoko realizes she has only eaten ones from convenience store lunch boxes.
All of the talk about food makes Yū as they smell fresh sweet potatoes. Kotomi offers to go to local truck eatery but learns that the price of one item is ¥1,000 (≅$10). She turns to see Tomoko running away.
In order of appearance:
- A bit of a "referforward" to "WataMote" Chapter 4, adapted into Episode 1 where Tomoko finally enjoys a hamburger from "WacDonalds."
- As of this chapter Tomoko has never had fast food.
- Matsutake Mushrooms:which can be quite expensive.
- Bentō : all sorts of "boxed" lunches you can buy.
- Yū effectively summarizes the entire art and food critic industry.
- "Like, don't you go to get fast food when you want mystery meat, or milkshakes with kimchi in them?" - Tomoko
