Taiga and Ryūji try to get Yūsaku to become the next student council president by telling students how she will ruin everyone’s high school life. Ryūji discovers that Yūsaku has feelings for Sumire, the student council president, and that she is going to be studying abroad in America soon, thus explaining his recent odd behavior. After some encouragement from Sumire, Yūsaku becomes a candidate, but Taiga drops out, leaving Yūsaku to become the student council president. He confesses his love to Sumire in front of everyone, but she does not respond to his feelings. Taiga becomes outraged at this, and fights a willing Sumire; after Ryūji and council members stop the fight, Sumire confesses she did not want Yūsaku to sacrifice everything for her. Yūsaku overhears this and states he is glad he fell in love with her. As Minori is leaving, Ami asks her if she feels guilty. Two days later Sumire leaves to study abroad and Taiga is suspended for two weeks. She is told to send a letter of apology to Sumire and instead sends a letter with only the word ‘idiot’.
