Summer Homework is chapter 40 of the Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai light novel series. It is chapter three of volume four.


After the club, Kodaka returns home, realizing Kobato's already inside once he arrives. Without giving much attention, Kodaka cooks dinner, and when finished, calls out to Kobato. With no response, Kodaka enters Kobato's bedroom and finds her at her desk as she instantly twitches at the call of her brother while hiding something from him. When Kobato gets down from her chair and approaches her brother, Kodaka does a quick 180 and finds a textbook and a notebook on her desk. Realizing she was studying, Kodaka pats his little sister's head and the siblings eat dinner afterward.

That night, before going to sleep, Kobato coyly asks her big brother to help her with her homework, and Kodaka happily agrees.

The next day, at the clubroom, Kodaka asks his fellow club-mates to help him do Kobato's summer homework, which happen to be crucial when it comes to an average student's grades. The Neighbor's Club agrees, as Yozora implies as to save Kobato from being humiliated if they declined.

By the time they were answering Kobato's homework, Kodaka tells his little sister to redo her summer diary, Kodaka scolds both Rika and Yozora for their absurd answers, and tells Yukimura to put more focus into both Japanese and World History. While Kodaka was scolding his fellow club-mates, he would usually get reprimanded by both Maria and Sena for causing a disturbance.

In the end, the Neighbor's Club is able to finish most of Kobato's homework (aside from the reading reflection, who Yozora was supposed to be responsible with, but was scolded by Kodaka for writing a mediocre book review as an answer). In going home, Kobato thanks his big brother, whilst giving off a pure, and honest smile. Kodaka then remarks that he is still too soft as a brother after seeing her little sister's smile.
