Where are You Going Mr. Dark and Gloomy?

Sana attains the pictures of the teachers using her own blackmail picture, and Akito has stopped acting up out of threat she will use it. She also manages to get him to apologize to all the girls of the class, which he does reluctantly. At first, this brings the first peace the classroom had seen, but Hayama's right-hand man, Gomi, usurps his position and assumes his role as leader. They start to brawl, but Sana threatens to release the picture of Akito if he fights back because Sana insists violence is not the answer. Realizing Hayama can't guard, she allows him to hit him with one punch, enough to bring Gomi to the ground. With him defeated, the boys rush back to Hayama's leadership, while Gomi is isolated away.

A few days later, Gomi reintegrates with the rest of the boys while Hayama becomes highly isolated, with no one to talk to. Sana realizes she feels sympathy for him, and goes out of her way to try and find out why his home life is so bad. While spying on him, she accidentally talks to his sister Natsumi, who she finds out is a huge fan. She asks for an autograph from Zenjiro, all the while insulting her brother, and Sana awkwardly says she will get it. At home, she speaks with her mother about this, who says she's proud that Sana is growing up, before being set upon by Onda. Sana laughs at the usual family antics, all the while feeling sorry Hayama does not have this.

Meanwhile, the next day, Tsuyoshi accidentally calls the teacher mom. The classroom laughs at him, and in his embarrassment, flies into a rage and tears apart the classroom, throwing desks and chairs with wild abandon. Hayama tells Sana and Aya that this is something which happens every year, and that only he can stop him. He does by hitting him in the head, and then takes him to the clinic where he helps him wake back up. Sana watches this, and sees that Hayama really does have a softer side. The episode closes as she is still frustrated about Hayama's situation.



  • This episode makes the first mention of Sana not having a father.
