Short Summary Edit
- Chiaki's younger sister Konoha, who secretly enjoys erotic games, overhears Keita and Eiichi at the game shop, taking comfort in Keita recommending an old game she also has a fondness for. Later, the Gamers play a Love Love Game of Half-Life board game together, becoming even more awkward as a result of the oddly specific spaces they land on. Just as Tasuku and Aguri manage to clear up some of the misunderstandings between each other, Chiaki finally discovers that Keita was her online friend and the one supporting her freeware games this entire time.
Detailed Summary Edit
By order of appearance:
Major Events Edit
- Aguri and Tasuku clear up some misunderstandings of their relationship.
- Chiaki finally discovers Keita is her online game friend and her game supporter.
- Chiaki's sister Konoha Hoshinomori is introduced.
- It appears Konoha has developed feelings for Keita for his passion of games.
- The game that Eiichi initially picked closely resembles Clannad, a famous visual novel and anime series by Key.
- "Love Love Game of Half-Life", the board game that Keita and the gang played, is based on a famous board game, "The Game of Life".
- Coincidentally, the board game's name pays homage to the Half-Life series.
- On the Japanese dub of the episode, Chiaki mentioned "Nyoro~n" while spacing out at the final scene. This word is actually the catchphrase of Churuya-san, the super-deformed version of Tsuruya from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya series (she often mentioned this once she felt defeated or disappointed), which became a famous meme.
