Kou shows his weak side to Futaba for the first time and she finds it to be docile and cute. That evening during dinner, Kou joins his brother, Tanaka, and his father to eat together for the first time since his mother's death years ago. He confesses that he never hated them, but that he was always confused whether or not he should get to enjoy the things that his mother will never experience again. The next day, at school, Kou surprised his friends by suggesting to do a study group, ultimately scoring higher than all of them on the finals. In the final scene, when they are deciding where to go for the summer vacation, Futaba reminisces about the past but also looks forward to create more memories with Kou, Yuuri, Shuuko, and Kominato.
