Hey, Makoto!

How much longer are you gonna be?

Then come and help me!

You've gotta be kidding.

Just hurry it up.


I wonder what Chiaki's

going to choose.

Sciences, I bet.

He's not good with kanji.

And he's amazing in math.

But that's it.

Why bring up Chiaki anyways?

Hey, someone's left

the hand-in notebooks here.

Who's in charge of them?

- Who is it?

- It's you!

What a hassle...



Time waits for no one.



What the...?


It sounded like

someone was here.




A locked room...


What's that?

Are you an idiot or what?!

You're killing me!

You're laughing too much.

Yeah. You're laughing too much.

- But it's just so funny!

- It's not funny.

Wanna get a CT scan

at my dad's clinic?

- I'm fine, all right?

- Be careful.

Something might happen again.

Nothing will happen.

I don't need the hassle.

But people don't just collapse

for no reason.

It's not for no reason!

There was someone there!

- Someone?

- Like who?


Why would I play a prank on you

and make you fall?


So I'm the culprit?

Then, who could it have been?

It sure is baking hot.

It's almost summer vacation.

Suck it up!

That's right! Summer vacation!

Let's go somewhere,

the three of us!

- Like where?

- We can go to a night game.

We went last month.

That's all you want to do.

- Then where?

- Like the beach.

Too hot.

Then, how about a fireworks festival?

We can wear yukatas.

I don't have one.

Where do you want to go, Kousuke?

- The library.

- What?!

I'll keep to my studies.

If you keep studying in this heat,

you'll turn into an idiot.

You guys don't study enough.

Yeah, but I'm not
