Futaba and Kou become class reps and have the task of motivating their team - Yuri, Murao and Aya, during the overnight leadership retreat. I know Kou is playing hard to get but I really hope he does end up with Futaba - they are adorable.
My goodness - she is stunning! Having successfully got through the tasks, the team now have some nice memories to cherish with Futaba falling harder for Kou, however, at the end of this volume, Yuri also admits she has a crush on him too! Cannot wait for volume 3! I can't seem to put this manga down!

To help them out we have Makita, Murao, and Kuminato joining them from their class! Then off to a retreat so they can become a team. At first Futaba is the only one who really wants to participate I enjoyed seeing them come together, even though its in a rather typical way.
I look forward to them becoming good friends! She wants to improve and have a really great high school experience and that means putting herself out there. This she does and I love that people already in her orbit join her She has different relationships with each member of the group and I love that And I just love the positive female empowerment going on!! Yes she likes a boy but its about way more than that During the orienteering activity at camp, the group gets lost.
However, they cooperate to find a way back, and despite being the last group to return, their relationship is better. After the camping trip, Yuri tells Futaba that she has fallen in love with Kou.
Futaba becomes conflicted, as she cannot reconcile Yuri's interest with her own feelings for Kou. Futaba comes to realize that she has fallen back in love with Kou. While contemplating her feelings, Futaba meets Yumi, an old friend from middle school, and through their encounter, she decides she must be honest in her friendship with Yuri and tell her how she feels about Kou.

Worried about Kou's future, Futaba, along with Yuri, Shuko, and Kominato, invades Kou's home and prepares a study session so he will not fail finals as well.
Futaba realizes that there is tension between Yuri and Kou during the study session. When she asks Kou, he guides her to the room where he keeps an altar for his mother.
Futaba begins crying and tells him that she wants "to know the Kou now". Kou's brother walks in while they appear to have a moment.
It is revealed that when Kou disappeared in middle school, it was because his parents divorced and he moved with his mother to Nagasaki. However, his mother was terminally ill, leaving Kou to feel helpless and alone. Futaba learns that Kou is suffering even now because he blames himself for being powerless. She wishes Kou had told her earlier and she wants to break open the door to his heart.
