Kanade and Akane leave for school to go to a student council meeting. On the way, Kanade points out the obvious flaw in Akane's plan to become king, namely, that it would bring her more attention. Kanade then tries to ditch Akane for clinging to her too closely. Akane is then almost hit by a truck while saving a cat, but Kanade saves her by materializing a giant, shock-absorbent wall. Akane asks how much it cost, and is shocked when Kanade tells her it cost 40,000,000 yen. The second part of the episode focuses on Hana Satō, who is bemoaning that no one at school knows her after she transferred away for a few years. She is shocked to find that Shū still remembers her. After school, she sees him walking home with Akane, and assumes that Akane is his girlfriend. Realizing the misunderstanding, she confesses her feelings for him. He says he would return her feelings, but is focused on the election, trying to prevent Kanade from becoming king, and agrees to return them once it is over. That evening, he calls her to make sure she arrived home alright. Later, Akane wonders why Shū would want to prevent Kanade from becoming king.
