Kanaka continues to pretend she's dead in front of Saki's house, but this time, Saki ties her up. As Testing Week begins at Iroha High School, the students are let out early and Kanaka invites Saki and Ayuko over to her house to "study". Since Kanaka's room is not particularly welcoming to guests, the girls spend their time in her brother Souta Amaya's room, much to his mild irritation. As Souta is introduced to Ayuko, he asks her if Kanaka is giving her any trouble to which she responds that she is "a lot of fun" after a long pause. Souta eventually settles down to study for his own tests, while the girls continue relaxing, with Kanaka claiming they're just "warming up".
