No Matter How I Look at It, It’s You Guys' Fault I’m Not Popular!

Synopsis

While Tomoko's school celebrates the Tanabata Festival, she watches students tie their wishes to bamboo grass with disinterest while inwardly ridiculing the legend of the separated deity lovers behind the festival. Regardless, she goes to the courtyard to look at other people’s wishes. She notices a joke wish and decides to write one even more interesting than that one.

The next day, she visits the courtyard again, but stays hidden while other people check out the wishes. Two students end up reading her wish, and she becomes overjoyed when she hears them say it is funny. Back in class, Tomoko spends her time brainstorming an even better joke wish based on sexual metaphors about the two deities of the Tanabata Festival. After school, Tomoko spots a blushing Kotomi hanging a wish and running away quickly. Tomoko reads it and hangs her sexual joke wish next to Kotomi’s sincere one. She decides to hang a few more but gets interrupted by Megumi who laughs that Tomoko has quite a lot of wishes. Megumi asks her what she wished for, and Tomoko becomes embarrassed. Tomoko changes the subject to Megumi's wish; Megumi responds that she wished everyone's wishes to be granted.

Ashamed after Megumi leaves, Tomoko decides to take down her jokes wishes. She gets one down and hides it just as Ogino surprises her. Trying to be supportive, Ogino gets a ladder and makes Tomoko put her wish up really high where everyone can see it. Tomoko climbs all the way up and hangs it where no one will be able to see it except the two star deities.
