They enter the classroom and some guy tells Shitara he has a 1st album of band Shitara mentioned day before yesterday and Shitara replies he also bought the latest recently. Masa tells Rin how Shitara became friendlier with guys recently but Rin without giving specific comment just notice that the two came to school together so he comments that they could come by train, but they walked instead to school. Shitara becomes irritated telling Rin he`s pain in the neck. Rin keeps getting to him and ask him shouldn`t he be more eloquent so Shitara tells him he`s nagging from the morning. Masa asks Mariho to show her the answers from homework when she suddenly screams, seeing the big bug on her desk. But Mariho saves the day for the bug and the rest of the classroom. Mariho is walking through the hallway thinking that everybody is astounded by her, so maybe Shitara will also be when she notices Aira who asks her to have a talk with her. Mariho says she is dating Shitara but Aira yells she knows and that the whole school knows. Then she asks about the hair and Mariho tells her she listened to Aira and cut it cause she didn`t take care of her before. Aira yells again she is being too honest and it sounded almost like sarcasm. Mariho apologizes to her if she really liked Shitara but says that she also honestly likes him. Aira replies it wasn`t serious and that there are lots of fish in the sea but she will tell her one thing, that the whole school is envious of her and since it is his first girlfriend in high school everybody thinks she is lame. Mariho replies that she will try to fight them but Aira becomes angry yelling why are they behaving like friends now.
Finally Mariho joins to her group answering to Masa that girl was Aira from sports day, what makes Shitara surprised. He asks her what did she say but Mariho says nothing really. Shitara asks her why is she hiding it and Masa jumps in saying she looked angry. Mariho says she did say something harsh but at least she says what she really thinks so she doesn`t hate her. Shitara is still looking worried so even when Masa asked him to switch places he refused saying they should go. While walking back Shitara asks Mariho for a date on Sunday, to see a movie etc.
During the class Mariho is nervous thinking what should she do on the date and how to prepare herself for that, she even hit the wall in front of herself. She is browsing her closet at home when suddenly Shitara's message came where he wrote he will be waiting for her at 11 o' clock tomorrow and she forwards the news to Tomi chan. At the end she couldn`t sleep even for 5 minutes. Mariho of course arrived first at the meeting place, so she is thinking that maybe she should go to toilet now so she doesn`t have to interrupt their conversation. At the same time, Shitara meets Masa and Rin at the same place and they ask each other what are they doing here. Shitara tells them he's on a date and Masa and Rin are going to museum. Then they notice Mariho who is writing a "hito" (human) character on her hand and then swallows it so Rin comments that’s the first time he sees human like that. Seeing that, Shitara rushes off and Rin tries to persuade Masa to follow them to movie but Masa doesn't want to meddle into their date.
Shitara approached Mariho saying she is early and Mariho is stunned how good Shitara looks with glasses. They are both surprised how crowded the theater is and they enter the elevator which is so crowded that Mariho is literally glued to Shitara. She is of course freaking out she is stacked to his chest and thinks how he has a nice smell, but Shitara remains his coolness. Just when she thinks she can't take it anymore not to smell him, Shitara informs her they arrived. He tells her to wait cause he`s going to buy tickets. She wanted to pay for hers but of course Shitara wouldn`t let her. During the movie Mariho is thinking how Shitara is very calm so she should also calm down a little bit. Then she noticed another couple having food so she also stands up saying she`ll go buy drinks. She hurries up to make it to the movie and accidentally spills Shitara`s ice tea on him. She freaks out and starts cleaning him, apologizing and asks if he`s wet. He says he`s fine and she should sit down so she embarrassed do so. After the movie both of them are so stiff and unnatural and Mariho comments the movie was interesting and stone-face Shitara answers that during the middle of the movie he almost fell asleep. He asks her if she`s fine with pasta for lunch and she agrees. While eating Mariho is embarrassed again because they are so close to each other. He asks her if it tastes good so she wonders, does it, cause she is so nervous she can`t even eat and understand the flavor. She leaves to toilet and bunch of girls start commenting Shitara how he is so handsome and the girl beside him can't possibly be his girlfriend but probably his friend`s middle school sister. Looking herself in the mirror Mariho blushes agreeing with them. But then she smiles thinking because he said to her that he liked her before the new appearance she will trust him give her best to become great girlfriend. In that mood she approaches Shitara apologizing for the wait and asks him to go somewhere what surprises him (probably how strong she is). Shitara suggests they ride a famous Ferris wheel, where he tells her how he used to ride this a lot when he was a child, but Mariho says this is her first time and starts feeling weird commenting it is pretty high. Next thing we see is Shitara carrying fainted Mariho out and her waking up on his lap. She apologizes franticly, saying she is fine now. Shitara tells her she should tell him if she can`t handle height but she says she didn`t know it was that high. She apologizes again saying she first spilled a tea on him then felt ill and caused him trouble, thinking to herself how this is not being a good girlfriend. Shitara tells her she will become sick again if she keeps talking and gives her a tea he bought for her. She is surprised by that and just when she thinks to herself how calm he is he apologizes on his behalf as well, saying he felt nervous so couldn`t even talk to her. She is totally stunned asking him is he really is nervous and he confirms that and asks her whether she knows his name. She responds very naturally that she does and it is Shitara Akito. He looks at her, very composed, and says it`s good that she knows it.
And the chapter ends with Mariho thinking she hopes that the distance between her and Shitara would become smaller.
Sara's comment: Well, nothing really happened in this chapter, but next one is finally becoming more interesting, hopefully the development will speed up a little bit.
