Nozaki mentions another person who helps with his manga, Mikoshiba. He tells Sakura that in his mind he calls him "Mikorin" making Sakura think he is this calm soothing guy. When Sakura meets with Mikoshiba, she's shocked to see the opposite of what she thought. However, once Sakura sees him feeling ashamed of what he says, she understands now.
As they work on the manga, Mikorin with a superior tone, tells Sakura that she should not bother him. Yet, Mikorin was anticipating for Sakura's questions, although she didn't really have any. It makes Mikorin happy, excited to explain it to her. Mikorin acting up again, tells Sakura to buy him coffee as he explains that he is her senpai (upperclassman). Yet, he still follows her to the vending machine.
The three of them watch a show and decides to do the activity shown, drawing a certain image based on memory. Sakura's drawings are realistic, Nozaki's are comic/manga style, and Mikorin's are doodles. Sakura wonders what Mikorin's specialty is, considering the doodles he drew. Nozaki shows her by drawing a simple outline of a person, and once she finishes inking it, the final background effects are magnificently drawn by Mikorin.
Sakura who notices all the fangirls around Mikorin asks him if he has a girlfriend. And once again, he gets ashamed of his answer.
Sakura is curious how Nozaki and Mikoshiba, who have opposite personalities, got along with each other. She asks Nozaki and replies that Mikoshiba made a great model... for the heroine. Sakura then observes the heroine and easily recognized the similarities.

- [Mikoshiba]:“ Portraying the character's maximum amount of charm is my job. ”
