Plot Summary

While Sorata and the gang prepare themselves, Chihiro bumps into Fujisaki in the audience section. The Nyapollen anime series starts playing. Nanami goes out to asks the audience to use their glow sticks. She instructs to move their glow sticks, and the audience roars wild once they see how their actions affect the main hero. When the final battle between Ein the Hunchback and Nyapollon starts, Nanami asks everyone to shout their love. Though, the audience is hesitant when it gets awkward. Then, Shiina shouts thank you to everyone, and Misaki starts shouting her request for Jin. Rita follows through by asking Ryuunosuke for his e-mail. The audience starts shouting. With Nyapollen's gauge fully charge, the story reaches a conclusion, and the crowd goes wild. While Jin cleans up, he explains to Misaki that Fuuka is his childhold friend and an ex-girlfriend. He tosses her a necklace, and Misaki spots Mashiro and Rita in a cab together. Nanami runs to inform Sorata that she cannot find her. Sorata mentions that Mashiro might be heading to England. She asks Sorata why is he not going to stop her. After some thought and confusion, Nanami tells Sorata to find Mashiro, and she goes off to find her. She bumps into Miyahara who confessed to her, yet Nanami cannot return his feelings. Misaki has the pink van pick up Sorata.

Over at the airport, Sorata embraces Shiina and cries that he does not want her to go. It turns out that Rita is actually going back home much to Sorata's embarrassment. Akasaka hands Rita a slip of paper that has Sorata's e-mail address. Rita comments that Akasaka plays hard to get, and Akasaka tells her how he views love. When Rita slaps Akasaka, he blocks her only to have Rita sneak a kiss on his cheek. After Rita departs, Shiina wonders what is throbbing so hard in her chest and thinks it's love much to Sorata's shock.
