Sorata is confused with his job as the producer, while Rita is playing at his room the explanation that Mashiro is busy working on her room. Rita then sees Sorata's work, and teaches him how to draw properly with an example. Rita also tells her curiosity about the result of the work of all geniuses. Then, Sorata asks about the relevance between Rita's statement that being wih Mashiro too long will break him down and the reason she stopped drawing pictures. Before Rita can answer, Mashiro enters the room and handed in the character designs, which was immediately approved by Sorata and Misaki.
Jin and Sorata discussing about the storyboard, Misaki finished the graphic and frames for the anime, Ryuunosuke built up the program, Sorata combining all the frames and storyboard and assembling the hardware. Rita, who is not involved in the project, is watching them all working hard, with some mysterious gaze. One night, while Rita was peeping atSorata working in his room, she meets with Ryuunosuke, who bluntly criticizes Rita's fake smile and vaguely tells her that all he needs to know is the fact that she stopped painting. The following day at school, when they hold a meeting again, two problems arise: the Student Council requested a presentation from them in order to be able to perform at the festival, and the graphics that still need to be done with the deadline approaching in two days. They realize that they need another person to produce the anime in time. While they are returning from the roof, they meet with the student council president, Tatebayashi Souichirou, with his girlfriend, who also will contribute some music for the project, Himemiya Saori. Tatebayashi and Jin then have some arguments about the requirement.
On their way home, Nanami, Mashiro, Sorata and Ryuunosuke, think of a solution for their problem, while sudenly Mashiro said that there is someone who can match her drawing quality:Rita.. Upon arriving at Sakurasou, they meet Rita, and tried to ask for her help. She refused with excuse that she already quit painting. Mashiro then insisted for help, which resulted in Rita's confession, that she gave up drawing, all because of Mashiro.
She then spoke off all of her past together with Mashiro, and what she felt that time. Rita reveals that her classmates in England were frustrated because they couldn't match Mashiro's talent, and ended up quitting. She then tells the group that Mashiro didn't care to stoop down to their level just so they can be motivated, and that Mashiro didn't care about her classmates. She then reveals that she actually wanted to get rid of Mashiro by introducing her to manga. This, according to Rita, would expose her to the heartbreaking criticisms of the critics, and make her feel about what everyone else at the atelier felt (but instead, her manga was a hit). She then shows her jealousy (and admiration) by saying that she wanted Mashiro to be famous just so Rita can brag that they studied at the same atelier.
After finishing the story, Ryuunosuke asked her to step aside, and again, bluntly criticizes about how Rita has forgotten to include what she really wants into her story, but he stated it in a too direct way, which instead of convincing Rita, he just hurt her deeper. Rita then dropped her bag and running in the rain, away from Sakurasou. Nanami, Mashiro and Sorata, who disagreed with the way Ryuunosuke speaks, throw their bag off and started to chase Rita, just before Sorata got angry at Ryuunosuke for his manner of speaking. They found her sitting on a bench in a park, alone. Sorata then comes forward, tries to comfort her by telling her what he feels for living around the geniuses like Mashiro and Misaki. He tells Rita why she is remarkable to both Sorata and Mashino: that whilst everyone was scared of her, Rita stepped forward, and was her friend for ten years. He continues by saying that she was Mashino's friend and saw things one could only see facing the things one doesn't want to see. Rita confesses that Ryuunosuke got the facts straight about her, but says that it doesn't make Ryuunosuke a better person. Sorata then explains how he feels working with geniuses like Misaki and Mashino: that it is an amazing experience watching everyone make something amazing. After Sorata, Mashiro comes forward, asking for confirmation about what Rita just revealed earlier. She states that she didn't understand any of them, but she felt sorry for them anyway. Mashino then becomes sad, feeling sorry for the fact that she was the only one having fun while she was with Rita. Rita, being touched with Mashiro's way of telling her true feelings, said that drawing with her for all those ten years was also fun for her. Rita then accept to help Mashiro finish the project. With two artist, the project graphics get finished a lot quicker.
