She had mistakenly tripped him with her cleaning broom in the school hallway and upon falling face flat on the floor, he mistakenly saw her panties. Taking him as a pervert, Hina chased him down the hallway demanding an apology. While restraining him against the hallway wall, Natsuki Enomoto an upperclassman arrived and recognizes Koyuki as her classmate prompting Hina to apologize to Koyuki for being disrespectful towards him. Nevertheless, Koyuki forgave Hina instantly which left a deep impression on Hina and thus marked the beginning of her crush for him.

Eager to see her beloved senpai again, Hina searched for him all around the school and finally located him watering flowers in the school yard. Happy to be reunited with her senpai, Hina joined him while he continued watering the flowers. Kotaro walked by and saw them together, he walked away from the scene brokenhearted.

Hina's first term in high school went by with no significant improvement between her and senpai. She vows to successfully confess her feelings for him during her second term. With a new mindset and determination, Hina puts on make up every morning in hopes of talking to senpai and getting him to notice her. Upon arriving at school, Hina was shocked to see senpai had change his image from being dorky to sexy. Hina soon realized the reason Koyuki senpai changed his image was because he was in love with Natsuki Enomoto and wanted to be noticed by her.

At home, Kotaro reminisce his childhood days with Hina and how they grew up doing everything together. Although he is hurt by Hina's love toward Koyuki senpai, he outwardly admit to himself he love Hina deeply and wants to make her happy even if it means she will never love him.
