Having joined the swimming club, Amuro meets the other members at the school’s pool. Kaname thinks it is surprising Momoko invited her personally, to which Momoko replies that it is just to strengthen the team, not because she accepts Amuro’s swimming style. When Makio greets Amuro, she is mistaken for a first year middle school student. Makio asks if she has swum with dolphins back on Okinawa and Amuro replies she has and sometimes ate them as well, shocking Makio, shattering her dream. Amuro moves on to greet some other members, Sanae Kise, Takeda and Mirei Shizuoka. When telling Mirei she has large breasts, embarrassing her, the male members are seen thinking both of them are large. As Kaname jumps in to introduce Mirei to Amuro, she instantly recognises him as the guy who cannot swim. Calling him Kaname-chan, she asks him why he is in the swimming club if he cannot swim and he explains being the manager. Momoko and Sanae join in, telling he tried to swim at first and Sanae starts a story about mermaids, annoying Kaname.

Suddenly swimming club captain Masa “Ikamasa” Ikariya appears out of the water. After getting introduced, he pulls a knife out of his swimming trunks and uses it to shave Amuro’s leg and arm, claiming reducing water resistance this way is necessary. As Momoko violently stops him, Amuro asks Makio if this is part of everyday practice, which Makio denies. Ikamasa interrupts them and decides to hold a shaving party for Amuro, throwing around razors. As Momoko starts telling Ikamasa he should not, Amuro starts shaving her back. After encouragement from Ikamasa, the other boys start chasing some of the girls with razors. He also tells Kaname to shave Amuro, who by now is harassing Makio with a razor. Kaname tries, but after accidentally cutting the shoulder straps of her swimsuit, he decides to run for it and hide behind the building containing the dressing room and storage room, running into Mirei, who is hiding there as well. She tells him she does not want to be shaved either, but “might be… interested…” in shaving the opposite sex, shocking Kaname with this revelation. As he thinks he must have misheard her, he is discovered by Amuro, who shaves his sideburns as revenge. Afterward, as Kaname, Amuro and Makio leave for home, Amuro tells them she enjoyed herself and Makio tells her that her joining really increased the club’s strength. She also explains that although Mirei and Momoko are very good swimmers, she herself can barely swim (her goal is being able to swim 25 m). After Makio leaves them at the railway station, Amuro proposes she and Kaname walk to and from school together, since they both live on Onoshima Island. Kaname, afraid people will misunderstand their relationship tells her no and to stop calling him “-chan”. Amuro, not listening, sees something in the water.

The next morning, as Amuro arrives at school together with Kaname, who does not enjoy the jealous looks, she spots Mirei and greets her, asking her where she lives. Greeting her as well, Kaname recalls what he knows about Mirei. As he later during training times her, he thinks of her as neat, clean and elegant (and popular because of that), but also wonders about her remark the day before. As usual, many guys, including Takeda, are staring at her as she swims, angering Momoko, whose violent behaviour scares them away. As Momoko comments Kaname had the same perverted look in his eyes, Makio starts feeling up Mirei’s breasts, claiming it is to find out who is bigger, Mirei or Amuro. Momoko interrupts, hands Makio her kickboard and leads her away like a kid, telling her to practice. Kaname comments to Mirei that even if it is between girls, getting touched is too much. Mirei agrees, but adds she”… might be… interested…” touching the opposite sex, shocking Kaname again. As Momoko rages about the lack of serious training, Amuro watches an absent-minded Kaname. As male spectators keep on staring at Amuro and Mirei, continuingly angering Momoko, Mirei asks Kaname to help her practice starting. After training Mirei thanks Kaname for helping him and leaves for home. Just as he thinks she can only be clean and elegant, the wind blows up her skirt, revealing her sexy underwear. Amuro arrives and walks home with a still shocked Kaname, who asks her if she prefers being looked at perversely or looking at others perversely. Amuro clearly does not know and as they enter the bridge to Onoshima Island, she starts walking on the bridge’s railing, despite Kaname’s warning and worried looks. She then aks him if he wants to be able to swim, claiming his expression tells her that. Kaname explains he does not mind only supporting his club members. She suddenly falls off the bridge and Kaname, seeing her struggling, thinks she has got cramp in her leg. Just as he is thinking about jumping into the ocean to rescue her, Amuro, now floating, shows the cause was a seal, Ono-chan, who starts living near Onoshima and becomes sort of a celebrity.

Points of Interest

  • Again, about all the current (named) members of the swimming club are shown, but about half of them remain unnamed and even without any text.
  • Sanae Kise gets named in this episode, but, unlike the others, this happens without a textbox with her name, specialty and year.
  • The title refers to Mirei talking about looking at and touching others.

Manga & Anime Differences

  • Amuro greeting Sanae only happens in the anime, Sanae does not appear until chapter 10 of the manga. Most of the “not named yet” characters do not appear in the manga chapter either, their first appearance is much later as well.
  • Amuro asking Kaname if he wants to be able to swim and discovering Ono-chan happens a day later in the anime. In the manga it happens after her first day as a swimming club member, when walking home with Kaname for the first time (at the end of chapter 5), in the anime after the next day’s training, after the chapter 6 material. Amuro does see something in the water during her first walk home with Kaname.
  • The training scene gets extended in the anime: In the manga Momoko tries to scare off the spectators only once, instead of multiple times, as in the anime. Ikamasa’s antics during one of those situations are anime-only as well. Also, the scene of Makio feeling up Mirei does not happen in the manga. Neither does Mirei’s comment about being interested in touching the opposite sex afterward.
  • Kaname asking Amuro about being looked at happens on the way home in the anime, in the manga it happens in the schoolyard (and Makio is present as well).
  • Also, Mirei’s skirt incident happens right after this conversation in the manga (Amuro and Makio being present, but not noticing it), while in the anime it happens before the conversation and Amuro does not arrive until after it happened. (Makio is absent altogether)
