----

* [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff Americans Love Tomoko]]: The manga has rapidly gained a [[CultClassic fanbase]] outside of Japan via [[{{Imageboards}} /a/]] -- [[ThisLoserIsYou mainly out of empathy.]] It also has a fanbase on /v/ as well, despite their irrational hatred of anything that can be somehow traced back to Japan. The cover of the first volume even acknowledges the foreign fanbase.
** This has also become a ColbertBump - a significant number of people have bought copies of the tankōbon (despite not knowing the language) simply to support the author, which in itself has drawn even more attention to the manga.
** So much so that SquareEnix ended up [[LampshadeHanging lampshading]] it with an AprilFools [[http://www.world-three.org/2012/04/01/poor-little-japanese-girl/ announcement.]]
* HollywoodHomely: Tomoko, when she's not trying.
** Less so than most examples. For an anti-social shut-in, she actually looks the part, with dull, baggy eyes and regularly making some rather unflattering facial expressions.
* JerkassWoobie: Tomoko can be kind of a bitch at times. This doesn't decrease her woobie-ness in the slightest.
* LesYay: One sided. Tomoko has it for Yuu. [[http://www.mangareader.net/its-not-my-fault-that-im-not-popular/21/7 This page]] and [[http://www.mangareader.net/its-not-my-fault-that-im-not-popular/8/9 this other one]] are blatant evidence.
** Chapter 21 is basically 20 pages of Tomoko trying to get Yuu to hug her any way possible and wondering whether she's being gay. The fans know the answer in their hearts.
** Chapter 29 reveals that she's been regularly sending weird texts to her friend. [[http://www.mangareader.net/its-not-my-fault-that-im-not-popular/29/2 "Yuu-chan, what kind of panties are you wearing right now?"]] indeed.[[note]]Though this particular line might be a CallBack to the events of chapter 8, and thus NotWhatItLooksLike.[[/note]]
** The ending of the first chapter of the spin-off series reveals that Tomoko's lust for Yuu dates back to the very day the two met. In the second chapter she gets jealous when Yuu reveals that she befriended other girl while Tomoko was staying home sick.
** Then again she has repeatedly made (failed) passes at [[BrotherSisterIncest her brother]] so this could be a case of AnythingThatMoves
* MorePopularSpinoff: ''It's Your Fault My Friend's Not Popular'' featuring Yuu began running in January 2013. While it's not clear yet whether it'll sell more copies than the original, it is running in ''Monthly Joker'' instead of ''Gangan Online''.
* {{Tear Jerker}}: Poor Tomoko. The fact that she can't communicate with other people is quite depressing.
** The ending of chapter 27. 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 a tea with her puppets and retreating into her fantasies.
* UglyCute: Tomoko.
* TheWoobie: Tomoko, pretty much. You just have to feel sorry for a girl who just has no idea how to talk to people without making herself look like a total dork.
