Arriving at their house, Kodaka immediately places the beef in their fridge and goes to buy ingredients for their sukiyaki after putting on a new change of clothes. After buying the groceries, Kodaka spots a scooter and Kate Takayama outside their house and then Maria, who came out as she hugs Kodaka not long after. As Maria got inside after her sister Kate reprimands her, Kodaka invites Kate inside for dinner. Inside the house, Kate introduces herself to Kobato. Upon knowing that Kate addresses Kodaka as "Onii-chan" as well, Kobato howls as she questions her brother for garnering more little sisters. After soothing Kobato, Maria presents her gift, a cross necklace, to Kobato and later ensues another fight between the two but was cut short as Kodaka had already finished cooking dinner and both Maria and Kobato decide to help Kodaka in finishing up. Kodaka then told Kobato to thank Maria for the present and Kobato did so in a low-toned manner. As both Maria and Kobato slack off after eating their food, Kate mentions that the scooter outside the house was hers and shows Kodaka the present she received from Maria in her birthday, a cicada's shell encased in a pendant, as she sulks since Maria gave Kobato a real necklace. After dinner, Kodaka prompts Kate to stay for the night; Kate agrees and then drags Maria into taking a bath alongside with her. After grabbing Kate's and Maria's change of clothes, Kodaka searches for Kobato until the latter comes storming off from their bathroom naked, where he finds Kate, in the nude, inside. As Kodaka stutters his way out the bathroom, he then apologizes to Kate and the latter forgives him nonchalantly. In their little exchange, Kate mentions Pegasus' liking towards Kodaka as the latter then discovers that Pegasus is her fishing buddy as Kate invites Kodaka on their fishing trips.
The next morning, as both Kate and Maria ride the scooter to head back home, Kate remarks that it would be nice for Kodaka to be their real older brother or something more but notes that he already had Sena. Though puzzled by her words, Kate and Maria drive off as Kodaka would be able to decipher the meaning of Kate's words not long after.
