Plot Edit

Arata is flustered at first as the newcomers in his old company, Zen and Rumi want to know what happened to him after he quit. Steeling himself, he tells them about the difficulties he had: being unable to do anything for a while, his inability to tie his necktie properly and freezing in job interviews every time they asked why he quit his first job after only three months. He also tells them of the complete loss of energy after numerous job applications and interviews without success which led him to believe that all companies were the same and that trying to get employed was not worth the effort, and ultimately to his becoming a NEET.

As Zen asks Arata if he is still unemployed he is about to say no but changes his mind, and saying that is the case he tells him of the social difficulties he has had because of it. Arata is reminded of the doubts he has had about whether Michiru would be alive had he acted differently and whether he would have been happy if he stayed in the company. With full confidence he adds that despite all the hardship he believes he did the right thing, and that because he quit he has also met new people and sees the world differently now.

After their talk with the newcomers is over Arata and Ryō take the train home. As Ryō comments on how good it must have been to be able to talk to them, Arata suspects Ryō planned the whole thing. Ryō denies having arranged anything but fails to convince Arata. As Ryō wonders why Arata told Zen and Rumi he was a NEET since he does support himself by being in the ReLIFE experiment, Arata tells him he did not want to give a false impression about the difficulties he has faced as he has not been able to find new employment himself.

After a little more teasing Arata about lying to his friends about having a job not too long ago before he started his ReLIFE, Ryō receives a message from An.
