In the starting of episode, Senpai was welcomed into their home by Misaki, who gave him some snacks and told him that her younger sister had talked highly of him. She said that she would tell him anything he wanted to know about her sister and asked if there was anything else he wanted to know about her. Before Senpai could ask, Nagatoro entered the kitchen yawning, with unkempt hair and comfortable pyjamas. She blushed in embarrassment when she saw him there and quickly went to dress and do her hairs. She reprimanded the boy for not calling or warning her before coming to her house. He replied that he sent her a text, but she yelled back at him that she was sleeping.
Then Nagatoro’s sister made her an unique marlowe pudding with fruit and cream to calm her down and suggested that they all sit and have a brief conversation. Nagatoro, who was embarrassed, asked Senpai to come to her room and stop her sister from entering. Nagatoro thanked Senpai for visiting her while in her room and flushed a little. The embarrassed youngster responded that he had only come to deliver a printout to her. They then began to eat pudding, and at one point the girl mocked him by offering to feed him.
Senpai chose to play along with it because he was alone with her. However, just as he was about to say anything, Nagatoro’s sister entered and discovered them in a compromising situation, adding that the lad does indeed appear interested in “every little detail” of her young sister. Nagatoro questioned Senpai what she meant by her previous sentence after sending her sister out of the room while still clearly blushing.
After Misaki finished speaking, there was an awkward quiet between Nagatoro and Senpai, which caused the kid to try to leave as soon as he finished his pudding. Nagatoro stopped him and asked him to play a game of video games with her like they had the last time he had visited her house. Senpai observed that Nagatoro has improved in the game, suggesting that she has practised with it. She concerned that he had asked her about her secrets while she was sleeping and then asked him what he had discussed with her sister. He swiftly reassured her that he wouldn’t have pryed into anyone else’s affairs without their permission.
Hearing this, Nagatoro offered to reveal to him one of her secrets of his choosing if he succeeded to defeat her in a match. Senpai initially claimed to be uninterested, significantly irritating Nagatoro, but then accepted the offer, saying he was simply “taking her up on that” After the battle began, Nagatoro jokingly mocked him, asking if the secret he wanted to know was her measurements or something “even lewder” Senpai said that he would have liked to know her first name, leaving Nagatoro stunned.
Nagatoro blushed as she realised that she had never given Senpai her name. She tried to act casually by claiming that she didn’t mind telling him, but she also asked him provocatively why he wanted to know it. She responded that it didn’t really matter how she called her, but as they were chatting, the game’s time ran out, causing Nagatoro to lose. The kid had lied, saying that it was just because it would be simpler to call her.
Despite being obviously delighted by the situation, Nagatoro maintained her composure and prepared to tell Senpai her name using their previous bet as an excuse; however, the boy interrupted her at the last minute by saying that he wasn’t interested in learning her name because they had won a game but rather because he had the guts to ask her directly. Nagatoro and Senpai both blushed and decided to wait for that day. At that very time, Nagatoro’s sister burst into the room, calling her “Hayase” carrying a photo book from when she was in primary school to show Senpai. Although Nagatoro screaming at her to leave her room, her sister persisted in showing Senpai unflattering photos of “little Hayase” Nagatoro informed Senpai that she would be returning to school the following day and advised him to “prepare himself” which made the child grin warmly. They bid goodbye that evening.
Later, when he was making his way back home, Senpai remembered the girl’s name, grinned, and then began to run.
Nagatoro offered to take a picture for Senpai in a post-credits scene to “thank him” him for helping him get back to school and in good health. She suggested a new pose by lifting her skirt a little, but the boy quickly rejected it as being too much, leading to mockery from the girl, who then suggested to pose in a Bruce Lee-like kick instead. Senpai agreed and began to sketch her, but she quickly began to tremble and fell down on top of him since her legs had become numb. When Nagatoro stood up and asked him whether he had shielded her on purpose, he responded that he hadn’t, obviously lying, which made Nagatoro blush and playfully taunt him.
