Our hapless heroine Hatsumi's romantic woes are put on hold to provide ample time for her little sister Akane to experience the sweet sting of teenage love herself.
She's tried flirting, she's tried being rude, but no matter how hard she works at it, Akane just doesn't seem capable of getting shy and cute Subaru to come clean about his feelings. Will a box of Valentine's Day chocolate bring these two mixed-up kids together, or will Subaru forsake the look of love and watch Gundam reruns instead?
Later, Ryoki gets some shocking news from his father, and learns more than he wanted to know about his parents' tawdry past - and their tangled relations with Hatsumi's and Azusa's folks too!
