** Worse, her behavior towards Tomoko after. She treats Tomoko like a pitiful little puppy and dresses her up, makes her wait somewhere in hopes of getting Tomok picked up. While she means well, it definitely goes from CringeComedy to sad how Kii-chan sees Tomoko as... a dog. Poor Tomoko.

** Pretty much the entire show can be considered this since it's about Tomoko desperately trying (and continually failing ''hard'') to be more socially adept.

* The ending of chapter 27 (or episode 10 of the anime). Tomoko is shown starting a club of her own and bonding with her schoolmates... and then it's revealed that [[YankTheDogsChain it was all in her imagination]], her proposal for a club got rejected by the school council and she's sitting alone in her room, having tea with her plushies and retreating into her fantasies.

A WhatIf omake makes it even worse by having her proposal approved by the school council, and then showing Tomoko one year later: sitting uncomfortably in the corner of her own club while other club members are having fun together, too shy and awkward to strike up a conversation with them or agree to their invitation to lunch, and regretting starting the club in the first place. Either way, she can't win.

* The fact that these kinds of thing can happen in [[RealityEnsues real life]], where some people experience crippling amounts of social anxiety whether in the form of a learning or mental disability like Autism or Agoraphobia or whether the person is just naturally unable to make friends. Given that humans are social animals, social isolation can easily become a crippling and debilitating situation where a person can wither away from a combination of psychological issues stemming from their lack of social ability.

* Chapter 23, where Tomoko realizes she forgot her textbook and, since it's too late to skip class, thinks of being invisible for the duration of it. She gets found out almost immediately and reprimanded by the teacher for not asking a friend to let her borrow a textbook or the person next to her. Same chapter, she gets reprimanded by a random ''stranger'' cause she's apparently a bit too close to the banister of a waterway. It doesn't help that Tomoko herself cries during both those times.

* Chapter 37 of the manga, when Tomoko manages to have a normal conversation with a similarly friendless senior on her last day as a first-year student and his last day of high school. If they had spoken to each other sooner, maybe they both could have made a friend. And then there's the possibility that Tomoko will graduate just as excluded and alone as him.

* The scene of Tomoko with the two guys at a bus station during heavy rain. Tomoko is so nervous she starts sweating a lot and even tries to make a (bad) joke about it. It's stomach-cringingly awkward but also kind of really sad to see...

** And even though in a later episode she meets up with one of the those guys, who mentions this. She screws up any chance of having a meaningful friendship by using him to try to impress Nii-chan.
