It's A Date No Matter How You Look At It. Seriously, etc.
On The Train is chapter 67 of the Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai light novel series. It is chapter eight of volume six.
Arriving at the train station, Kodaka find the girls by the waiting area. Seemingly annoyed and upset, the girls ignore Kodaka as they passed by him, leaving him to follow them on the train to Nagaya City. Inside the train, Yozora questions Kodaka on why Sena and the others are with them. Kodaka explain that since they all are planning to buy a gift for Kobato, they might as well go together. Though Sena agrees with his point, she adds that it feels unfitting and how Kodaka nonchalantly reacts to it. Rika, depressed, claims that she was aware of what will happen and added that resignation is key whether the girls wanted to be with Kodaka as Yukimura apologizes to Kodaka for thinking that she has forgotten her place in the world and for dreaming of things beyond her status. Rika then coldly asks herself if Kodaka's denseness is real or it is just how Kodaka had planned it all along. When Kodaka comes to check on Rika, the latter reasons with him that she is only thinking how an interesting person Kodaka is, which left Kodaka wondering.Afterwards, Kodaka points out to Rika the weirdness on how she still wears her lab coat which the others also share the same view as Kodaka remarks on the effort Rika had done to her hair. Kodaka then comments on how cute Rika's looks are and adds that cute clothes would also be fitting to her which left Rika blushing while Kodaka, puzzled, is unaware that he actually said it aloud. After stating that she has killed her science-type character, Rika asks Sena for advice about fashion. Reluctant on answering, Sena finally reveals that Stella does her wardrobe and make-up as Yozora insults Sena for not going to a hair salon. Seeing Sena hopeless, Rika then turns to Yozora and asks her where she buys her clothes. Yozora answers that she purchases her clothes that models wore online. Rika compliments Yozora for looking cute and sexy in her clothes. Surprised, Yozora turns to Kodaka; hearing only the same compliment, which left Yozora flustered as she claims that the clothes she wear are found on the boyish section of magazines. Dismayed, Kodaka and Rika preaches Yozora about the true fact behind boyish looks, leaving Yozora more embarrassed until Kodaka outbursts in agreement when Rika points out that wearing hot pants is much sexier than swimsuits and some undergarments. As a result, Yozora covers her bottom with both of her hands.
Arriving in Nagaya City moments later, Yozora tells Kodaka to not follow her as she goes shopping as Rika and Yukimura tag along with her. With him and Sena left, Kodaka asks Sena on shopping together and Sena happily agreed.
