Summary:

Classes start, and Shingo talks to Hayata about what happened yesterday. The atmosphere of the classroom is pretty heavy due to Airi’s statement that she wouldn’t welcome the boys yesterday. Shingo feels that the key to breaking the tension in the classroom is to talk to Airi. Shingo walks over to her desk to Airi’s desk, but Airi coldly refers to him by his surname and gets up and leaves. Angie comes over to Shingo and talks to him and reveals that she’s half British on her mother’s side, who is also a maid. During a break Shingo starts thinking about Airi’s attitude and feels that it’s like their initial meeting never happened. Shingo starts spacing out and accidentally walks into the girls’ bathroom and sees Airi washing her hands. Airi blushes and screams for Shingo to get out. Shingo tries to apologize, but Airi doesn’t listen to him and tells him that boys should use the temporary boys bathroom.

During PE Shingo and Hayata talk about how the school was originally just for girls and assume that the girls don’t want to have anything to do with the boys. Shingo asks Hayata to do something since he’s the student council president, but Hayata tells him that it isn’t easy and he’s still busy handling the duties from the student council work at Kagamidai. While Shingo and Hayata are talking, Angie comes over dressed in gym clothes and offers the boys some water. Shingo takes the opportunity to ask Angie if she’s against the school going co-ed, and Angie tells him that she likes the idea of having more students because it increases her chance to find someone who can potentially be her master. Hayata comments that it’d be nice if all the other girls felt the same way, and a girl walks over to them and tells them not to worry about it. Shingo recognizes the girl as Inui Sana from his class. Sana tells them that while there are people who are against the merger, there are also people who want to accept having boys in the school.

Later Shingo keeps making mistakes such as accidentally walking into the girls changing room, and accidentally glimpsing at Airi’s panties. These incidents get to Shingo as he’s getting a reputation of being a pervert, and he eats by himself in the woods near the school. While he’s eating, a cat-like creature comes up to him and he feeds it. Soon a 3rd year girl, Amaha Miu, comes to look for the cat, whose name is Pannya. The girl introduces herself to Shingo, and Shingo introduces himself as a 2nd year student. Miu recognizes Shingo as a part of the test classes and carefully looks at him. She tells Shingo that she’s not used to boys since she’s been in all-girl schools since primary school and talking to a boy is a new experience for her and she envies the 2nd year students for having classes with the boys. Miu tells Shingo that it might be tough to get used to the school, but she’s sure that Shingo will love this place too and leaves.

That night Sakuno makes dinner, and Shingo asks her about her experience. Sakuno says she was just fine, but that’s probably because she’s a girl. Sakuno tells him that he should be fine if he asks the way he normally does. The next day at school, the principal has a meeting regarding the merger and asks the Yuijo students about how they feel about the students from Kagamidai. The girls have a bad opinion of the guys, but have no objections to letting the girls stay. The principal tells the Yuijo girls that they’re being overconfident if they don’t acknowledge the opposite sex and announces the start of a new curriculum. The special curriculum takes place in the home economics room and involves the boys and girls working together to prepare a dish. The participants in this class are the boys and girls of Kagamidai and some of the girls of Yuijo, who include Airi, Sana, and Angie. Today’s dish is chestnut rice, and the class splits into groups of six. The boys have trouble with the assignment at first, since the girls yell at them for not being able to prep the ingredients, but Shingo is slowly able to change the mood by calmly helping out and the other boys are able to follow his lead. Everything works out, but the class ends up making too much rice due to Angie prepping too many ingredients. Unfortunately eating everything made is part of the assignment, so if all the rice isn’t eaten then everyone fails. The girls start to get discouraged, but the boys step up and start eating a lot of the rice. By the end, all the boys are stuffed, but they manage to eat all the rice. While walking home, Sakuno comments to Shingo that he looks in better spirits. As they’re walking they see Pannya, and Shingo comments that it belongs to “her”. The next day the teacher asks the students to start picking a class representative, one from Yuijo and one from Kagamidai. At first the Kagamidai students want to pick Hayata, but he declines stating he’s busy with student council work and nominates Shingo. The rest of the students agree to it, and so Shingo becomes the representative for Kagamidai and he finds out that Airi is selected as the representative for Yuijo. Airi is surprised and bothered to see that he’s the representative.

Opinions:

So we’ve now  been introduced the the whole female cast (the potential love interests anyway). It’s starting to look like Airi has feelings for Shingo, but is conflicted with her belief that Yuijo should remain as an all-girls school. Everything’s pretty slow paced so far, but I’m hoping we’ll start getting to character stories soon. With Airi and Shingo both being class representatives, we should get more opportunity to explore their relationship. After hearing the ending song “Suisai Candy” by marble, I’m really getting into it. There’s just something about it that makes the song keep playing in my head, but then again a lot of marble’s songs are like that. I might just buy the CD for this song.
