Oto Edogawa decides to stay in Tokyo to be near Haruto Kaguragi when her parents reveal they are moving to Kyushu. She and Haruto later help Tsukushi Makino reunite with Tsukasa Domyoji before she leaves for Los Angeles. After Konno's wedding, Haruto and Oto reaffirm their relationship.
Oto Edogawa and Haruto Kaguragi, along with Tsukushi Makino and Rui Hanazawa, sit down to talk to Oto's parents. Her father tells her that they approve of their relationship now, but that it will have to be long-distance because they are moving. Haruto and Oto go outside to talk. Tsukushi tells them "If you two need to be together then I don't think you should separate," giving them courage to speak to her parents. Oto's father agrees that she can stay in Tokyo, revealing that they have arranged for her to stay at her aunt's. He adds a warning to Haruto that he will come get her if anything should happen. The couple meet up with Tsukushi afterwards to tell her how things ended. Tsukushi then tells them she will be returning to Los Angeles.
The next day, the Correct 5, except Haruto, and Oto go to see off Tsukushi. Before she boards the plane, Kaito Taira tells her about Haruto meeting Tsukasa when he was young and how he changed him. Airi Maya asks her to give him their thanks. Meanwhile, Haruto happens to meet the F4, whom are rushing to see Tsukushi. He calls Oto to stop the plane, allowing them to reach Tsukushi in time. Tsukasa embraces Tsukushi, before they begin arguing. She tells him "I don't want to be the only one with the easy path," though she admits that she was lonely. He holds her, promising to come whenever she calls. Tsukushi then introduces him to Haruto, whom he does not remember at first. Tsukasa tells him to take care of Oto, adding "We'll probably meet again someday."
Sometime later, Oto says goodbye to her parents at the train station. She later begins to settle into her new apartment when Haruto arrives. They then wait for the others to arrive. However, their friends have decided not to go in order to give the couple some time alone. A couple hours later, Haruto makes to leave but Oto stops him. She admits to being lonely and he kisses her. Haruto invites her back to his house, when they are interrupted by a knock at the door. It turns out to be Oto's aunt, who has stopped by to check on her and soon leaves. Haruto talks to Oto about his future, saying "I want you to come with me." She agrees and he then rushes out, feeling that he is "taking advantage of [her] loneliness." Oto follows him and says "I'll go with you."
Oto and Haruto walk together to his house. She tells him "It's my first time." He says it is his first as well, saying "I only ever planned to do it with the girl I love." A teenager then tries to rob them. Haruto realizes he is being used which reminds him of himself. He encourages him to change and "escape the loop." At Haruto's house, he and Oto spend the night in each other's arms. He feels an "overwhelming" happiness. On Christmas, Oto and the Correct 5 go to Arisa Konno's wedding. Konno comes up with an idea to let Haruto and Oto sneak out. He presents Oto with a ring, telling her "You know how I am, but please let's be together forever." She agrees with tears in her eyes.
