Run, Squid, Run?!
Squid Girl joins Eiko, Chizuru and Takeru on a morning jog, they run into Goro. Chizuru invites Goro to jog with them. Along the way Squid Girl smells shrimp curry, so Squid Girl, Eiko and Takeru decide to stop there, while Chizuru and Goro continue jogging. Squid Girl is amazed that such a place exists so close to their house. At that point Eiko and Takeru realize that they never gave Squid Girl a proper tour of the city, so they proceed to show her around.
Out of water?!
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. At the end of the day, Squid Girl says that she had a lot of fun trying out foods that day and is sort of amazed that humans could make something so big.
Elsewhere, Goro is reaching the end of his limit, as night begins to fall, Chizuru is still jogging with Goro lagging behind. Goro barely makes it home alive.
Ink that an SP?!
"I'm finding it hard to eat." - Takeru
Sanae tries to hug Squid Girl again, but fails. Takeru's classmate intervene, saying they are Squid Girl's personal guard and will protect her from bullies like Sanae. Eiko laughs when she learns this saying it's like Squid Girl has an SP. SP "Squid Protection", refers to those people in black suits that put their lives on the line to protect prominent figures.
