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 in her uniform walking to school on the top of a wall. The narration states: "It's already Spring, but nothing has changed."
The start of spring break begins with some news about a male teacher wearing women’s clothing and flashing his privates to school children. Later, Tomoko uses a make-shift anti-pollen kit, consisting of goggles, a mask, a hooded sweat-shirt, and gathered-at-the-knees sweat pants to go outside. She decides to change into a skirt so that people do not mistake her as a pervert. Her initial foray outside seems successful: her eyes do not itch nor tear. Her first stop is the park where she can look at the cherry blossoms.
At the park, a number of kids play together on swings and in the sand box. Tomoko sits on a bench enjoying the spring without pollen. As she lays back perhaps dozing, she unknowingly spreads her legs while relaxing on the bench. Children and mothers see this. The mothers contact a policeman who gently confronts her. Luckily for her, he was quick to notice that she was a girl and sends her away, telling her take better care of herself as a girl. At home, Tomoko cries from embarrassment and allergies.
In order of appearance:
- Tomoko is allergic to pollen. WataMote Wiki knew there was a reason she always has a box of tissues at her computer.
- Anti-Pollen "Kits" are, indeed, a thing in Japan. With the cherry blossoms come the allergies.
- Higanjima: partially censored for copyright, appears a reference to the manga and live-action movies of the same name.
- Tomoko enjoys something: Spring without pollen.
- Tomoko "womanspreading."
- "Sounds like spring. The season when perverts start getting active." – Tomoko
- "I got a call that there was a pervert showing himself off to kids. I accidentally mistook you for that suspicious person ojō-chan." – Policeman
- "The tears won't stop. . ." – Tomoko
