Due to Nanako’s little joke, Ako chooses to be a ‘Hikikomori’, isolated from any personal contacts. To bring her back to school, Hideki decides to go see her at her house. After playing the game together in her room, they have a good talk that makes her go back to school without any problems.
As you can see, Ako struggles to talk to her girlfriends in the class. On the other hand, the game newbie Sette has a hard time in the online world.
One day, Sette mentions the upcoming final exams.
Kyoh is of course the smart one as she is the Student Council president, but they all were extremely shocked when they found out that Ako is on the verge of failing school.
So, while they’re logged in to play the game at home, they all agree to give Ako lessons.
At last, their exams are all over and Ako’s days of study are over, too.
Fortunately, Ako manages to pass the exams and doesn’t have to take any makeup classes. However, she seems to be extremely tired, possibly from all the studying she’s not used to, and logs off from the game earlier on that night.
After Ako leaves, everyone walks away also to log off. However, Hideki stops Kyoh and Akane for a talk.
He asks them for advice for how to tell Ako about his feelings for her. In return to this, they both say there is no way that Ako will refuse his love.
The next day, at the last club meeting before the summer break begins, the members get information on a club camp during the break. On the way home after the club…
Hideki and Ako walk home together as usual. Then, suddenly, Hideki suggests stopping at a park.
Hideki finally declares his love, but Ako unexpectedly rejects it.
How come Ako doesn’t accept his love?
Most definitely, the highlight is Hideki opening his heart at the end.
They begin to meet in real life, and his feelings for her slowly but surely grow deeper. He finally gathers his courage to declare his love for her.
No one including Kyoh and Akane who are his advisors expect this to happen.
Ako normally admits her deep love for him without hiding it. So, why does Ako say no to Hideki?
During the episode, there is a scene where Ako is all in white. That is taken from a manga called ‘Ashita no Joe’.
The Handen Shuju Law: This is a question on ‘History of Japan’, one of the high school subjects in Japan…so you may find it unfamiliar.
An endless loop is scary, isn’t’ it? This is what Ako mumbles on the way home from school after talking about the final exams. This phrase is based on a post on 2ch online forum, and it means you repeat something again and again and there is no way out.
In Episode 7, we’ll find out why Ako has to say no to Hideki’s declaration! See you next time!
