Eventually, the subject is turned to the director, Mikio Ono, who makes his first official appearance. Tsuyoshi and the rest of Sana's friends hear that she will be leaving for a long time for the filming, and speculate that she may be held back because of it.

Sana learns she will be staying at the set of the movie for two months, and leaving in a couple of days. Tsuyoshi warns Akito that he must make a move for Sana, or else Naozumi may steal her away during their filming. Akito tells him to mind his own business, and works for the next promotion in karate.

He runs to her bus, and she gets out to meet him. She is glad he came, even though he claims it was by accident they met, but he says there is something he wants to tell her. However, he doesn't want to admit his love in front of everyone, so he says he will tell her when she gets back.
