Popura tries to help Inami with her feelings for Souta. Souta and Inami walk home together as a first step in curing Inami of her fear of men, and Nazuna sees them together. Nazuna comes to work at Wagnaria the next day because of a report she needs to write for class. Nazuna confronts Inami after witnessing her usual beatings on her brother, and asks her if he enjoys getting hit. Inami misunderstands, thinking Nazuna is asking if she likes Souta, and responds yes, causing Nazuna to think Souta is a masochist. Souta says to Inami that he will stand by her until he cures her of her androphobia.
