The Fault in Our Tutoring (きっと、補習のせいじゃない。 Kitto, Hoshuu no Sei ja nai) is the first chapter of the Fukukaichou Gambaru manga, serialised in Young Magazine the 3rd on August 6th, 2016.

Summary[edit | edit source]

In the main building of Hachimitsu Academy, Meiko is alone in a classroom in tutoring and is taking a supplementary class for mathematics. The geometry problem she is working on describes a equilateral triangle ABC, which is divided into six segments by three lines (AD, BE and CF) incident on each vertex. The complexity of the triangle's non-uniform ratios frustrates Meiko until she starts visibly sweating. In a moment of realization, Meiko decides to bind the cord of her riding crop around her outstretched legs to construct the same triangle. However, Meiko's plan fails when she bends down and uses her arm to form the third line - and she collapses on the floor with the problem still unsolved.

Characters[edit | edit source]

The only character to appear in the chapter is Meiko Shiraki.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The chapter title is a cultural reference to American medical romantic-tragedy film The Fault in Our Stars.
  • The magazine chapter cover features Meiko Shiraki and is a visual reference to promotional art for American martial-arts action comedy film Kill Bill.
