Plot Edit

Arata and Chizuru walk from the school together after their talk with Honoka. Chizuru wonders if her actions helped or broke the balance between Honoka and Rena, since the situation did not get resolved. Arata reassures her by telling her she did very well and changes the subject to Chizuru changing schools a lot in her past, which he found surprising. In his mind Arata concludes that Chizuru's clumsiness and formal manner of speech must be the result of her giving up on getting closely involved with people back then.

Remembering Chizuru's words about how she started to believe no-one from the classes she was briefly a part of would remember her, Arata tells Chizuru that he is never going to forget her even after they graduate, but then wistfully recalls the fact that she is definitely going to forget everything about him. Taken by surprise, Chizuru is at first unsure what to make of Arata's confession but it makes her happy nonetheless.

Ryō and An have been listening to the conversation via wiretap, Ryō in the ReLIFE office and An at home. Ryō notes in his report the subject's contribution to the progress in resolving the problem at hand, however the situation does not improve during the following week. Beginning to have doubts about the correctness of him and Chizuru's intervention, Arata messages Chizuru to apologize for not managing to change anything. However, Chizuru reassures him by telling him it was because of him that she was able to have a proper talk with Honoka and that she still has faith in Rena.

Still holding the phone, Arata receives a call from Ryō. Ryō confirms that Arata is going to the tournament, letting Arata know by implication that he is also going himself. Before ending the call Ryō also thanks Arata for something he does not specify, puzzling and disgusting him to equal degree.

On the day the volleyball tournament begins Rena puts on her team jersey, but is having mixed feelings.
