Lights of the Clione
Minori is the bullies’ favorite target, and always alone, but Takashi and Kyoko want to see her smile. However, the hostile classroom environment holds them back from being able to take a single step in the right direction.
One rainy afternoon, Takashi and Kyoko spot Minori standing alone on the street and call out to her. Later, they make a promise that brings Minori to tears.
Kyoko is thrilled to learn there’s another girl on Minori’s side, but she hates herself for shutting down as soon as she gets into the classroom. Takashi tries to cheer her up by suggesting they might come up with a solution when they all visit the local aquarium.
The weekend they've waited for is here, and the three head out for the aquarium in the neighboring town, where they won't have to worry about anyone seeing them. While they take their first steps into the special Clione exhibition, Minori's guardian gets called to the hospital.
The trio is on their way home from the aquarium, and Kyoko and Takashi still haven't come up with a plan to help Minori, but they decide to keep making sure she's never left all on her own. All seems for naught, however, when Minori stops coming to school.
Rumors say Minori will never come back to school. As summer vacation starts, Takashi and Kyoko receive a mysterious text message with no information on who sent it, telling them of the summer festival at a familiar shrine.
