Out of the frying pan and into the pressure cooker, the Narita household is sent reeling when Hatsumi's big bro Shinogu up and moves out in the middle of the night! Is it really because he just needs more space, or could it be that vindictive male-model/childhood friend Azusa's allegations about Shinogu's past are true?
Hatsumi heads over to Shinogu's new pad to find out for sure, but Ryoki tags along. Is our hapless heroine's heart throbbing because she's really warming up to Ryoki, or is this whole situation just more than a girl can take? Even more, will Hatsumi's little sister Akane finally be successful in putting the moves on the geeky-in-a-really-cute-way Subaru?
