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.
Tomoko stretches on her own in a track suit as she notes to herself that there is a marathon at school that day. Yū asks if they could all run together. Tomoko stammeringly agrees, though Kotomi easily sees through that lie.
With the start of the marathon, Tomoko immediately leaves Yū and Kotomi behind. Kotomi is legitimately surprised at how fast Tomoko is.
The surprisingly fast Tomoko easily passes a girl in the baskeball club. Inwardly, Tomoko chortles over her ability to pass an actual athlete and revels in the feeling that all the girl's hard work over two years in the baskeball club was for nothing. Tomoko becomes overcome with the glee.
Kotomi and Yū sit exhausted while Tomoko walks over to congratulate their good effort. She reveals that she placed 21st. When Yū excitedly encourages her to join the track and field club, Tomoko refuses since she does not want to put in the effort only to find that she has no talent. She would prefer to live with the illusion that if she did put in the effort she could win an Olympic gold.
In order of appearance:
- Despite her otaku appearance, Tomoko can run; though she admits she has not exercised at all in middle school.
- "It's actually kind of refreshing how obvious it is that she plans to try and pull ahead." - Kotomi
- "I'd rather just live with the illusion that if I seriously gave it my all in track and field I might be able to take the Olympic gold." - Tomoko
