While he was packing, he remembers the moment he told Mashiro that he plans to leave Sakurasou. After that moment, Mashiro has focusing all her spare time to finish her manga for the competition.
Finished packing, Sorata wants to leaves the house, when Misaki stops her and shows Mashiro in her yukata. Shocked, Sorata can't give a proper comment, the two girls leave, calling him an idiot. Left alone, Jin comes out and says that they are going to celebrate Tanabata and gives Sorata a yukata. While Misaki and Jin were with the kids, helping them hang up their wishes, Sorata and Mashiro sit together in a bench, contemplating on Mashiro's. Just after she hang her wish, the rain poured down and the celebration dismissed.While all are drying up in the dining room, Mashiro receives a call, which tells her that her manga lost. Sorata then tries to comfort her, but ends up hurting her feelings instead. Realizing what he has done, Sorata runs out of the house into the rain. Soon, Jin comes after him, and try to comfort him. While talking to each other, Jin tells Sorata that artistic people sometimes get torn between the real world and their own world. Sorata learns that Jin is in love with Misaki as well, but he can't stand the gap that exists between them. Then, they both head home, and when Sorata arrived at his room, he founds that Ryuunosuke has lent him some of his book about game design, and then have a short course with his AI, Maid, who says that Sorata should read the books until he tears himself to shreds. Meanwhile, Mashiro isolated herself in her room.
Next morning, when Sorata delivers her breakfast, Mashiro doesn't to his knock, so Sorata just left the meal in front of her door. Then he proceeds to take off the bamboo from last night, and sees what Mashiro has wished for: "That Sorata's wish comes true.". In school, Sorata meets Nanami, and they planned on taking care of the last two cats that haven't been adopted yet. They continue the conversation on their way home, when suddenly he was escorted by Ayano, Mashiro's editor, to a cafe. There, Ayano showed Sorata the manga. The manga was based on Sorata's experience with Mashiro, but the genders were reversed, with the male being as sure as Mashiro, and the girl as unsure as Sorata himself. Ayano reveals that she told Mashino to base the manga on the happenings on Sakurasou. She then explains that the manga was great, but the ending wasn't. She also explained that if Mashino edited the ending, there is a chance that her manga can be published. Knowing the reason as to why Mashino settled with the ending, Sorata then rushes home immediately. He stops by the school, handing over his career survey to Chihiro, then he continues rushing home. It is then shown that Sorata wanted to be a game developer. He then rushes home to explain to Mashiro how she had misinterpreted his wish.
After reaching home, he immediately goes to Mashiro's room and explains everything. He explains that he was scared of doing what he wanted, in virtue of failure. However, he admits that after he saw her work, he admired her, and that he wishes one day that he will be like her. While he was explaining, Misaki arrives and due to Sorata's shouting, she go upstairs, but is stopped midway by Jin.While explaining, he sees that the food he left earlier was untouched. He then goes into her room, and sees her asleep. It turns out that she worked all night to get the ending that she wanted, not the ending that happened. Seeing that, Sorata feels touched, and decides to stay on Sakurasou with everyone else. He explain this to Mashiro, including the chance of her manga being published, once she is awake. Mashiro asks Sorata to call her by her first name, Mashiro, starting from that time onwards. By then, Jin and Misaki rushed in, and celebrate Sorata's "return".
