私がモテないのはどう考えてもお前らが悪い!

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!

Synopsis

Near midnight, Tomoko stays up studying for her test the next morning. She ends up procrastinating repeatedly no matter how hard she tries. When she looks up a kanji she catches herself searching guides for a game; when she turns on the television for background noise she catches herself becoming engrossed with the latest craze for girls: pole dancing; and when she searches for an answer on the internet, she finds herself watching pole dancing videos.

The next day, she takes her math and modern literature tests. She emerges bleary eyed but resolved to studying for the rest of the night, only to find herself holding onto a pole in the exercise yard.

Characters

In order of appearance:

Referbacks and Forwards

  • Tomoko uses the "Gaagle" search engine yet again.
  • This chapter suggests that Tomoko is actually a good student. She considers Yū "average," her mother and Ogino never complains about her grades, and she even takes some pride in her work. However, later chapters demonstrate that she places more in the middle of her class, and Asuka Katō will encourage her to improve her grades, particularly in English, to improve her chances to enter a university.

Trivia

  • Tomoko says she has not cared about being popular recently.
  • "Pole dancing" is rendered in katakana as "ポールダンス"--"pōru dansu."

Cultural References

  • ポールダンス: as with All Things Japan, even pole dancing is serious business.

Memorial Moments

  • Tomoko pole dancing

Quotes

  • "I didn't even care about pole dancing just ten seconds ago!" – Tomoko
  • "M-My body just keeps moving on it's own..." – Tomoko
