The episode opens up with our heroine, Ikenouchi Miku, looking down at her hand in front of the school. Deep in thought for a second or two we get flashed back to an event that happened three months earlier at the entrance ceremony.
Unlike the other kids, Miku is sitting outside on the steps in front of the school, her head down obviously y not feeling too good as she mumbles a few words. It’s then when a young man from her school shows up and offers her a hand.
Taking it, she tries to catch a glimpse of her savior only to have the sunlight cancel out his features. Getting to her feet, he walks her to the nurse’s office and lays her down. With her focus off, she continues to try and see just who the young man is that helped her out. Alas, the sunlight from outside continue to cascade him and illuminate all around him making him hard to see.
Watching him leave, the scenes jumps back to the present where she stands her left hand open, her eyes staring at it as she says, “My first love. My fated person…”
Running late, she runs off to class where she does more hand staring, which causes a few of her classmates to ogle at her. Just when they begin to make a few comments on her, Miku’s friends seem to enter the classroom. Upon entering they ask her if she thought of him again, her fated person. Nodding, her friends grin at her as they ask how she plans on fining him, since she never got to see his face. Blissfully, Miku responds saying that she remembers the feeling she got when he took hold of her hand and escorted to the nurses office. Hearing another bell, everyone gets up to go to workshop. Following along, Miku stands up and looks down once again at her hand, smiling.
“I’ll definitely meet him,’ cause he’s my fated person.”
Seeing how she spaced out once again, she’s now late to workshop and is running down the hallway. It’s there when she catches a glimpse of a young man and young woman down by the lockers – preparing to make out. Stopping in her tracks, she stares down at them – her eyes fixated on the young man in particular.
Locking eyes, he looks up at Miku completely ignoring the girl in front of him. Being caught, Miku looks away and walks briskly down the hall, while the young man continues to stare on in silence.
Meeting up with friends, Miku is caught off guard when a group of guys come up looking for her asking if she’s knows Narahashi Souhei, who we learn from her friends is the heartthrob of all the girls in school. Apparently he’s been looking for Miku. Not knowing why, a few of the guys suggest that it might be to confess his love for her since Miku herself seems to be well known and liked.
Not knowing who this Souhei is, Miku retraces her steps back to the lockers, where she looks down at the same spot where she’d locked eyes. Not seeing anyone, her thoughts are soon interrupted by a young man walking down the hallway, who stops and asks if she’s Ikenouchi. Answering him, we soon learn that he is Souhei from the soccer club, the same Souhei that had been looking for her. Surprised a bit, Miku bites her lip as she remembers her other classmate’s word about receiving a confession. We get a few scenes of Miku mentally preparing herself, only to have Souhei say that starting next week he’d be in her care.
Having no clue what he’s going on about, Souhei soon explains that he’ll be lodging in Miku’s family boarding house, which leave her even more confused as the scene cuts to the drama’s opening theme song.
Once it comes back, we see Miku sitting on her porch/balcony eating a Popsicle as we get another flashback of what we assume was what happened that night when she got home from school. It’s a flashback that involves her parents and how her father quit his office job because the company had too many people coming in. However, with his resignation he got a lot of ‘thank you’ money to pay off Miku’s college expenses. Understanding that situation Miku asks about the lodging. Apparently, a few of her father’s old friends asked if their kids could stay there. Taking up the offer, her parents go on about how fun it’s going to be living with 3 more people. However, Miku doesn’t share her parents opinions and instant rejects the idea saying she won’t be able to do it. In an attempt to persuade her daughter, her mother gives the details of Souhei’s reason for moving in. Apparently his mother just got divorced and where he lives now causes him to bike for two hours in order to make it to school. Still not agreeing, the flashback ends just as Souhei and friend peek out from the other room in the boarding house.
Walking out on the promenade, we get to see makeout boy again only this time we learn his name. It’s Katagiri Hayato and he’s here to help Souhei move into his new home. Recognizing him from before Mike lets out a small ‘oh’ and Souhei can’t help but ask if the two know one another. Without much thought, Hayato instantly replies with a no causing Miku to look away.
Trusting his friend, Souhei asks her if she has any scissors, however Miku is taken back by his informal speech, such as calling her by her first name when they really don’t know one another well enough. However Souhei doesn’t catch it and insists that she can just call him Miku, as he barges into her room looking for the scissors, finding them – he takes them. Jumping up at his action, Miku calls out meekly, those are mine. Looking forlorn Miku doesn’t go after him.
Once in his room unpacking Souhei asks Hayato once again if he knows Miku, because of the fact that when it had been decided on where he was going to be living Hayato had said, “Ikenouchi’s house” However, Hayato plays dumb and denies.
Their conversation is cut short though as a “Help” is called out from down stairs. Enter roommate’s number two and three. According to the young woman who was screaming for help a creepy man was following her. However, we soon learn that his name is Takigawa Naoharu and he’ll be boarding there. Happy to hear he’s a good person, roommate number two, Taneo Kiyoka welcomes him while introducing herself. Before Miku can say a word, Souhei introduces everyone else in the room. Bowing, Naoharu drops one of his bags revealing his otaku nature with his otome game crush Rurika.
From there the scenes changes to that night during dinner when Miku’s parents welcome everyone to the Ikenouchi boarding house. During the dinner, Kiyoka pulls Miku over towards her and asks, “Which do you prefer. The cute type or the cool type.” Clearly talking about Souhei and Hayato. Paniking, she replied with neither of them which leads Kiyoka to look over at Naoharu with a smirk as she asks if she prefers that type.
The party soon moves outdoors as they all, except for Miku, play with fireworks. Noticing her sitting by herself Souhei walks over to her and asks if she’s not going to join them. Not saying a word, she gets up and walks away.
It’s now the next day and Miku is one her way to wash up when she bumps sleepily into Souhei who just got out of the bath. Darting out of his path, he walk by her without another word (other then oops sorry). However, her morning doesn’t stop there. Opening the bathroom door we encounter Naoharu on the toilet. XD
Despairing over her new roommates, Miku tells herself she can’t do it on her way to school. Her thoughts are interrupted though when Souhei and Hayato come running up to her, saying how they should walk to school with her since Souhei is living together with her. Right away people start talking and giving her cold stares. Ditching the guys she runs up a head and goes to school.
Once at school we get to meet another new character “Uzamiyu” as she’s called by her classmates. Miku also hunts down Souhei to tell him not to tell anyone about their living arrangement because she doesn’t want to make enemies with the girls at school or be known as “Uzamiku”. Not really understanding why, Souhei agrees to go along with it.
It’s now night time and Miku goes to get a drink. However, her cup is missing. Once again the tenants (Souhei) are using her things without her permission. Just as he walks into the room with it, a crash is heard in the other room. Running out we see broken glass on the floor with Naoharu sitting down beside it.
Freaking out, Miku tells him that it was something her dead grandmother took really good care off, which makes the poor guy feel even worse. But it doesn’t stop there as Kiyoka walks out with a Popsicle, which Miku also claims as hers and how she was looking forward to eating it.
Dinner is silent, as everyone shoots glances at one another while Miku sits pouting. Her parents though insist that Miku isn’t angry at any of them anymore. Sitting down her chop sticks, she mumbles that it’s all her father’s fault for making a boarding house without even asking her how she felt about it. Getting up she leave the room, shortly after Souhei tells her parents that he’ll be right back and leaves as well.
From there we get some scenes of Miku crying in her room while Souhei is riding his bike, quite determinedly. Hearing a wind chime, Miku walks out on the porch and finds Souhei lying down exhausted, while a new wind chime like the one she freaked out about earlier (the one that got broken) hanging up. Apparently, he biked all the way home just to replace it because having one is better than having nothing as he says. Agreeing, she sits down next to him.
Souhei apologizes to her for having to live with a bunch of strangers, but tells her that it’s really helping him out since his parents’ divorce and all. He also believes that being there is good for everyone, not just himself and that he’s hoping Miku will stick it out to the end with them.
Smiling, she tells him she’ll go get some tea if he’ll drink with her. Agreeing, Miku goes to get up and ends up falling off the porch. Asking if she’s alright, Souhei holds out his hand to her and she takes it. The feeling hits her and she flashes back to that day three months ago. “This hand. It’s the same.”
Snapping out of it, she jumps up and runs inside to get the tea. All the while she’s wondering if her fated person is Souhei. Returning to the porch, the two sip tea with smiles on their faces.
“I found you, my fated person.”
The next morning, Miku goes and apologizes to her father about her sudden outburst the night before. Accepting it, she runs off only to find a young girl in their school uniform at her house; it’s Uzamiyu (Ozawa Miyuki). Apparently she’s came to pick up Souhei (who she calls Sou-chan).
Coming out of the house right on que Souhei smiles happily as he informs Miku that Miyuki is his girlfriend. Eying her up and down, Miku repeats the word and decides that God is bullying her.
