Yuu Kashima discloses to Mikoto Mikoshiba that Hori-senpai has been really distant lately. He immediately tells her she needs to show more appeal and be more aggressive. Simultaneously, Hori tells Chiyo Sakura and Umetarou Nozaki that lately Kashima has become really annoying. As he is putting the manga away, Sakura asks why he carries it around. Hori tells her that he keeps it on hand for background reference. Worried, Nozaki asks if Hori-senpai’s reputation would be ruined if he lost his bag. Hori assures him that he almost never puts his bag down.
However, the next day, Hori is forced to throw his bag at Kashima as she tries to run away from Drama Club practice. Dazed, Kashima picks up the manga that fell out, and she is surprised to see that it’s marked with such detail. She ends up buying a copy and can’t believe that Mikoshiba also has such in-depth knowledge about it. She cannot believe that boys are moved by such a story and then asks Nozaki about it. After hearing his complex thoughts, she mistakenly concludes that it has become the “male high school students’ Bible.”
Still trying to think about Hori’s mind-set, she goes through various situations to try and understand his feelings. For example, since he doesn’t get the lead role, she tries to make him get the heroine’s role. However, each instance angers Hori even more until he ends up hitting her with a blackboard. Walking home with an injured Kashima, Mikoshiba tells her to stop it already. However, she confidently answers that she completely understands her senpai’s feelings.
At Nozaki’s home, a dejected Hori tells Sakura and Nozaki that he thinks Kashima hates him now—her behavior is becoming even more erratic. Nevertheless, after hearing his final statement, Nozaki states that his “Kashima good will” has actually gone up.
