With Kyosuke unable to give her a straight answer, Ruri asks that he give her his response after the party the next day. Speaking with both Kirino and Manami, they both tell him to think over this decision carefully. During the party, Kyosuke thinks back on the past year after he began his life counselling with Kirino, whilst also taking an opportunity to tease her. After the party, Kyosuke agrees to go out with Ruri, officially making them a couple. As Kyosuke becomes stressed over how to act like a proper boyfriend, he brings Kouki along with him to the Games Research club, where the other members claim that they always knew Kyosuke and Ruri liked each other, and are surprised to learn that they decided to go out just recently. After being given some time alone, Ruri admits she has also been stressing about how to act in front of Kyosuke and simply asks that they go on a date.
