Concerned by how seemingly close Kyosuke and Kirino have gotten, their parents arrange for Kyosuke to live on his own so he can focus on his exams. With Kyosuke needing to earn an A grade before he can move back, Kirino adds that if he does succeed, she'll do any one thing he asks. Later, Kanako decides to pay Kyosuke a visit in his new apartment, proving awkward when she finds an eroge Kirino lent him. She proves smart enough to guess that Kirino is his sister, but is still oblivious to her being an otaku. The next day, Ayase visits Kyosuke to deliver a housewarming present, shortly followed by Ruri, leading to an awkward and embarrassing confrontation. After Ayase takes her leave, Kyosuke and Ruri reconfirm their stance on their relationship, with Kyosuke stating he won't start dating until he settles things with Kirino.
