Meanwhile Goro is jogging with Chizuru, while waiting to cross the street Goro overhears a few young women commenting on how Goro and Chizuru look like a couple. Goro is embarrassed, but notices that Chizuru doesn't say anything. Goro also overhears the women saying that if you ring the bell together at the shrine at the top of the hill with your partner you will be together forever. Goro is even more dismayed when Chizuru asks if he wants to jog to the top of the hill with her.

Eiko and Takeru take Squid Girl to see the Giant Buddha statue. Squid Girl mistakes it for a real person, and Eiko feeds Squid Girl lies to make her even more afraid of the Giant Buddha. Eventually Squid Girl realizes she made a mistake.
