It's New Year's Eve, and Akira and the gang are hiking to the mountains to watch the first sunrise of the new year. But when Yurika can't keep up and Akira slows down to stay with her, the two get lost in the deep, dark woods - and soaked to the skin by torrential rain. Luckily, they find shelter in an empty shack. But keeping warm in the freezing cold will mean shedding their wet clothes and huddling together under an old blanket. This could turn out to be a pretty good New Year's after all.
