- Kiyonaga: "I think I like you. Since your relationship with Tsukasa went sour, why don't you take me, instead? How about it?"
- Tsukushi: "Don't take me for a fool. Let me tell you something! I don't like Tsukasa's face, figure, or his personality. I don't give a damn if you look like him."
- — Tsukushi rejects Kiyonaga
Chapter 155 (
Tsukushi Makino feels insulted by Kiyonaga, who offers to date her since he looks like Tsukasa Domyoji. He walks her home and receives a warm welcome from her parents. Tsukasa, meanwhile, learns more about his so-called cousin
As Kiyonaga approaches, Tsukushi Makino threatens to hit him with a chair. Kiyonaga asks "How about going with me?" since he looks like Tsukasa Domyoji. Insulted, Tsukushi says "I don't give a damn if you look like him." Not bothered, Kiyonaga responds "You've got pretty strong convictions, don't you?" Tsukushi reasons that "no one [has] fallen in love with [her] at first sight" and would find anyone "suspect" if they said so. She decides to leave, but tries to clean up the mess she made first while still feeling weak.
Meanwhile, Tsukasa Domyoji and Akira Mimasaka meet Sakurako Sanjo and Shigeru Okawahara. Tsukasa asks the girls if they had a group date and if their was someone who looked like him. Shigeru confirms it and also reveals that she and Sakurako planned it. In a flashback, Tama tells Tsukasa about his cousin, who has had a rough life. Now at a café, the girls are surprised to hear that that guy is Tsukasa's cousin. Shigeru eventually suggests that they go to Tsukushi's place to see if she has come back.
Tsukushi wobbles home with Kiyonaga following behind her. She claims her father is strong fighter, but he appears unintimidating when they arrive. He confuses Kiyonaga for Tsukasa and quickly informs his wife. Tsukushi corrects them, but they continue treating him much like they would Tsukasa. Watching the family, Kiyonaga is reminded of Tsukushi telling him that "[she] could [not] taking anything for granted." She smiles wistfully, saying "Even if my future looks dark. I'm find, as long as I'm having fun."
