|Cotton Drifting Chapter, Part One - Jealousy|
We start the arc with yet another shock footage - Rika stabbing her neck with a knife...
Morning comes and everything appears to be normal. The game club partakes in a tournament held at a toy store in town. Everyone is doing well except Keiichi, but after some lecturing by Mion, he ups the game by bribing two of his classmates into helping him win.
In the end, it comes down to between Mion and Keiichi, but Mion temporarily postpones the game due to a part-time job she has. Keiichi gets upset about this, so the shopkeeper consoles him by giving him a prize for getting so far - a doll with blond hair. Rena thinks it's cute, so Keiichi decides to give it to her.
Afterwards, Keiichi visits Angel Mort, but finds Mion working there as a maid waitress. When confronted in a sleazy manner, 'Mion' informs Keiichi that she is actually Shion, Mion's twin sister. Keiichi does not completely buy it, however, but accepts her reasoning for now.
After school the next day, Shion pays a visit to Keiichi and offers a bento dinner as a gift. When Rena talks about Mion's existing feminine side on the following day, Keiichi thinks back to 'Shion's' gift, and agrees that she might be right.
Later that evening, Keiichi pays a visit to Angel Mort to return 'Shion's' bento box, but accidentally knocks down a series of three motorcycles. The owners of the motorbikes, members of a bousouzoku gang, are about to give Keiichi a beating when Shion appears to defend him. Just as the gang members turn their attention on her, the vicinity is quickly surrounded by angry villagers of various ages - all of whom give an ominous stare. Seeing the turn of events, the gang quickly escape on their bikes and the villagers return to being friendly and smiling citizens.
While thanking Shion for her timely rescue, Keiichi tells her that he accepts her adorable side and that she could stop pretending to have a twin. As he was saying this, Mion exits the store she works in and steps before the two, proving to Keiichi that the twin sister story is not a lie.
However, this causes much awkwardness between Keiichi and Mion in school the next day. During one of Mion's many bathroom trips throughout the day, Rena asks Keiichi to forget about the incident at Angel Mort. She further asks if Keiichi have finally see the cute side to Mion's personality. Keiichi agrees.
"What I want to see is the shape in the dark. What I want to hear are the hesitating footfalls. What I want to know is where I really belong. When They Cry: Cotton Drifting Chapter, Part Two - Takano. Can you believe it?"
