It`s morning and Shitara is waking Rin up, who complains about bugs that bothers him and he has a headache. Shitara asks him if he is alright and Rin says it`s just a migraine he usually has. Then he asks Shitara where did he go yesterday during the night and Shitara blushes a little trying to avoid answering. Mariho narrates that she is like mesmerized ever since kissing Akito and her head has gone crazy and she feels like she is floating in the air. Thinking about that she can`t even cook properly what worries Maasa so she asks Mariho what happened. She tells her about the kiss and says that she was going to behave normally in front of them and apologizes ahead if things become strange. Maasa tells her it`s fine and that she`ll look after her. Masa apologizes to her for being so inexperienced in kissing and not being able to advice her about that, but Mariho tells her that it`s not necessary for her to have all information about kissing. Masa tells her “kiss from the person you like is special” is written in Betsuma, and granny arrives asking whose kiss is special. Mariho panics saying that they were only talking about the manga since she was afraid what would happen to Akito if granny found out they`ve been sneaking out at night. Granny offers Akito and Rin breakfast and Akito of course has to eat it but Rin declines saying he doesn`t eat in the morning. Masa says that the rice is delicious, but Rin usually doesn`t eat much. Then they notice that Tadaomi is missing so granny informs them that he got up early and left for work. Saying how he is hard working bothers Shitara so when she asks him if he will help her in the field he determined agrees to. Mariho tries to intervene saying she will help her but Akito stops her saying she doesn`t need to do anything. Mariho and Masa are nervously watching at them discussing that maybe granny wants to train him because he is her boyfriend. Then granny puts a hat on Akito saying it’s hot so he needs it. Tadaomi comes teasing Akito and brings 10kg of rice. He then tells her that she shouldn`t ask Shitara for help since he would do it much faster, but Shitara says that he will do it faster, cause he is younger...and so an argue begins who is better, bigger etc. in the end, Tadaomi asks Masa for her opinion and she answers that they are the same. Tadaomi then compliments her tea, but Mariho says that she made it. Then granny punches Tadaomi because he was saying until now that he likes Mariho and suddenly he changes his heart. Akito asks Rin if his headache got better and soaking Rin says it did. Then granny brings out a yukata for Mariho. Girls are very excited. Mariho is very happy and as she smiles Akito is looking at her and blushing. Granny says she will borrow a yukata for Masa as well. Mariho is very happy for festival is finally beginning and she can meet again Tomi chan and other friends. Girls wear Yukata and Shitara is embarrassed how cute Mariho looks in it, but when Masa asks him doesn’t Mariho look cute, he replies it is good, so she asks Rin, but he says the same thing. Mariho`s friends are shocked to see such a handsome boyfriend. Tomi chan tries to converse with dull Rin, about the movies since she heard he likes movies asking him which one he recommends, but he just says that she should watch what she likes.
As they walk through the festival they notice that it is getting crowded so they should pay attention not to get lost. Then Tomi tells Mariho that she might get over board being familiar with Rin because suddenly he got very cold to her but Mariho assures her that it is just the ordinary Rin. They ask her about her relationship and if they have kissed already so she tries to get back to Shitara and almost trip but Shitara is here to help her. Mariho is surprised seeing he has sunburns on his arms ( probably from working in fields) and starts to apologize to him cause she intended this to be a fun trip, but Shitara tells her that it`s fine and he thinks that her granny really wanted to see her and although she said she will pick a partner for her, it was only because she was worried and it`s not like she was over strict with him.
Rin and Masa are also enjoying themselves in festival and Rin tries to scare Masa putting on the fox mask what makes her angry saying how he always makes up something bad. Suddenly it becomes crowded cause portable shrines enter the festival so Shitara tries to grip Mariho`s hand but she trips again and loses sight of Akito. She notices she forgot her cell phone and as she tries to find Shitara she notices Rin who went to rest aside because his headache appeared again. Mariho wants to help him by finding a quite place, and meantime Shitara and Masa met each other. Mariho asks Rin if he needs a drink or something and Rin says he doesn`t, but she is worried so she brought soaked handkerchief to put on his head.
Then he apologizes to her for being mean to Tomi chan, making a bad atmosphere and also for not being normal at her granny`s place. Mariho tells him it`s fine and if he`s felling unwell he doesn’t need to mind all that. She continues that although there are times when he teases others he actually takes care of people as well. Even with Shitara when he does something insufficient he takes care of it, like he did in that cafeteria when she transferred schools. Rin smiles and says that in her eyes both he and Shitara can become good guys cause she always looks for something good in people. She then asks him if he also forgot his cell phone and tells him to stay here and she will look for others. But Rin takes her hand (having a fox mask on his face again) and wouldn`t let go of her. She tells him he can`t scare her like Masa with fox face but keeping silent he just holds her hand. She asks him what`s wrong but in that moment Shitara and Masa finally found them and Akito is shocked to see calm Rin holding Mariho`s hand.
