Watashi ga Motenai no wa dō Kangaetemo Omaera ga Warui!
No Matter How I Look at It, It’s You Guys' Fault I’m Not Popular!
The main page depicts Tomoko dressed as a maid serving a strawberry cake with the caption "I Want to Live a Sweet Life" above her head.
As she lays in bed Tomoko receives a phone cake from Yū telling her she cannot go to the movies with her. Tomoko initially fears that Yū does not want to remain her friend after Tomoko's multiple erotic emails and phone calls! However, Yū explains she has to work at her uncle's store. She invites Tomoko to visit and offers her some cake.
Tomoko arrives and is startled by Yū's uniform. She orders a piece of cake and compares to herself how she wasted her previous day inside playing games while Yū worked in a fashionable place. As she eats, wonders if her working in such a place is the reason Yū is different from her. Yū interrupts her thinking to wipe a bit of cream off her face. Tomoko concludes she can use Yū as a model and surround herself in a "fashionable atmosphere."
At home, Tomoko begs her mom to let her accompany her at her part time job making cake. Tomoko then daydreams over an imagined young baker and her "baking" together, which, naturally, involves him pouring cream all over her so he can lick it off. However, she ends up working an assembly line of food factory rather than a small cake shop. During a break, she sits stunned and disillusioned. The narration congratulates her: "Mokocchi! Good work!"
In order of appearance:
- Tomoko makes a reference to her desire of becoming a hostess from the previous chapter.
- Tomoko's mother has a part-time job.
- Yū, while surprised, does respond to Tomoko's game.
- I'm being brushed off. . . ! By my only friend. . . ! Why? Is it because I keep sending her weird emails?" – Tomoko
- “I didn't have to set my sight on becoming a hostess… There's someone right in front of me who I can use as a model instead…” – Tomoko
