Returning to the shrine and thus absent from the event, Madoka is brought up to speed about the tug-of-war, sullenly mistaking it to be a proposal to Hina. Koyori, home from vacation, visits her upset friend to the apparent news, rushing to find Kazuma in the company of the others. Following a brief shock from everyone, Kazuma straightens out the story. Daigo is more than convinced that Madoka must like Kazuma, recruiting the help of the girls to orchestrate a date for them at an amusement park. The couple spend an enjoyable day there, so much that Madoka invites Kazuma on a picnic the next morning. As the two get settled by the stream, placing her windblown hat back onto her head, Kazuma realizes she is the girl from his childhood.
