Short Summary Edit
- Following his accidental confession to Karen, Keita contemplates if he should rescind it due to assuming she and Tasuku are an item. After Aguri tells him to decide for himself on what to do, Keita formally asks Karen to go on a date with him to an entertainment center. As the two spend time playing sports games and going to the pool, things become awkward when they run into Chiaki, who proposes they play a kart game. Although Keita ends up losing, Karen is happy that he made things more enjoyable and the two finish off their date with some cheerful game discussion.
