Wakana asks Konatsu and Sawa about going to the musical which can give them ideas for the White Festival. Sawa seems preoccupied, and she leaves the two. When Wakana asks Konatsu what's wrong with Sawa, Konatsu states something about spring as she looks at the boys. In the principal's office, the vice principal asks him about the choir club's request, and the chair man appears. The chair man is here to discuss with the principal about the study plans. Over at Sawa's home, her parents notice she is not eating dinner, and Sawa weighs herself before hitting the bed. Back at school, Wakana instructs her members, and Sawa collapses.
