The titular protagonist felt that she did not have enough money to buy gifts for Junichirou in 'Tomo-chan Is a Girl' episode 11. SPOILERS AHEAD!
Recap of Tomo-chan Is a Girl
Tomo approached Misuzu on an ordinary day at school, telling her about her plans to start working. Junichiour's birthday came soon, and she wanted to give him a present. Interestingly, Misuzu and Carol agreed to work alongside her to offer her help.
Tatsumi took the trio to his family restaurant where they met his father. His mother was currently not in the city, so his father needed help to run the business. The three girls showed their talents and the restaurant flourished when they visited. But one day, Tomo was surprised when she discovered Junichirou.
Tomo is irritated by Tatsumi's lack of communication. He buys a watch for Junichirou and gives it to him on his birthday.
Despite the fact that she has failed to do anything on her own, Misuzu offers her a strange suggestion. She tells Tomo to catch Junichirou when she pushes him down the stairs, in the hope that this will accidentally result in romantic physical contact between the two. However, things go horribly wrong when Junichirou accidentally touches Carol.
Why Does Misuzu Avoid Tomo?Why is she so apprehensive towards her pals?
Tomo woke up the next morning and noticed that cats and dogs were wet. She still went to school. She was surprised when Tomo learned that Misuzu was nowhere to be found.
Misuzu still did not see Tomo as she was too ashamed to face him after realizing that she had subconsciously pushed her and Junichirou away from her bed. When she removed the curtains, she was surprised to discover Tomo standing there.
Tomo has brought sweets to Misuzu in hopes that it will help her feel better. She also did not hold back and confronted her friend about their dismal friendship. Nevertheless, Tomo was mature enough to tell Misuzu that she would not be surprised if she did not like Carol anymore.
Misuzu went back to school the following day and chastised her friends for choking her to play Cinderella. Junichirou encouraged her to face the challenge head on and that everything would go smoothly if things went smoothly. Tomo did not like this and told him to take his own business.
