Umetarou Nozaki apologizes to Masayuki Hori for there being more backgrounds in this chapter. Chiyo Sakura and Hirotaka Wakamatsu offer to help, but their skills are quite poor. Nozaki scolds both of them—this kind of work is best left to the talented. They, however, retort that he should make more of an effort. Therefore, Hori tries to convince Nozaki to learn how to draw backgrounds so he doesn’t have to rely on him. But Nozaki’s sense of perspective is all wrong. To compensate, he draws all the characters standing on boxes. This makes Hori even angrier; nevertheless, he then tries a different approach—Sakura and Hori make Nozaki take pictures of them around the school, so he can use them as models for Mamiko and Suzuki. Once again, however, Nozaki makes them stand on boxes. In a desperate final attempt, he decides to make Nozaki copy backgrounds from old copies of the manga. Yuu Kashima walks by and is shocked to see her senpai showing Nozaki the manga with such interest. Unfortunately, this strategy also doesn’t work, and he’s forced to pull an all-nighter to help Nozaki finish.
The next day during the drama club meeting, Hori can barely stay awake. Half-asleep, he sees Kashima standing on a box to reach for something on top of one of the cupboards. Enraged (because of what he went through with Nozaki) he knocks her off the box and passes out from exhaustion himself. Kashima decides to carry him to the nurse’s office. However, the other club members don’t let her wear a prince’s costume, so she opts for a bull’s head. She wants to be an elegant and proud horse which carries a prince. When Hori wakes up and finds out what happened, he promises Nozaki that he’ll do all his backgrounds on one condition—his next story has to be about a prince who’s cursed to be a bull. He adds that the scene where he changes back into a prince should be really flashy. Nozaki is confused but agrees.
