After getting away from the crowd, Takumi and Misaki join a contest for couples. After initially being reluctant, Takumi's teasing fires Misaki up and they complete the contest and win special tickets to the post-festival fireworks. After the UxMishi concert, Misaki tries to find Sakura and Shizuko, but finds Kuuga instead. Misaki gets some reassurance that Kuuga is serious about Sakura, whilst Kuuga wonders why Misaki isn't dating Takumi yet and accuses her of being cruel to him. After the festival, Misaki and Takumi get dressed up in Romeo and Juliet costumes as part of their prize, and go to an empty classroom to get a better view of the fireworks. With Kuuga's words in her thoughts, Misaki confesses to Takumi that she doesn't understand her feelings for him, but wants to be with him. He hugs her, tells her he loves her, and they kiss during the fireworks. Later, they walk around the festival hand in hand. In the epilogue, as everyone continues with their daily lives, it is revealed that Suzuna knows her sister likes a boy, Aoi is living with Satsuki again and Hinata is still vowing to win Misaki’s heart.
