Nasa and Tsukasa finish their visit to Nasa’s parents and come back to find their house has burned down! But don’t fret, Nasa has prepared for everything with insurance, keeping his prized possessions in a safe deposit box, and storing all his documents on the cloud. They stay in a spare room owned by the family who runs the bath house, but they also need to go shopping for all new clothes. Nasa has some fun picking out outfits for Tsukasa, but things get a little awkward when she has to get new underthings. The two set up their temporary home with some old relics from the family's departed father, which include classic video games, old TVs, and some interesting furniture pieces.
These two are still ridiculously cute, but Nasa does have thoughts every once in a while about getting fresh with Tsukasa, and that occasionally has an effect on him physically that he has to hide. The daughter who runs the bathhouse has a knack for catching Nasa at the worst time when he's having these moments or doing something that could be construed as pervy. There are a couple of shots that accentuate portions of Tsukasa’s body (specifically her butt and boobs, fully clothed though) as Nasa thinks about her wearing the underthings she picks out. We still have no clue about Tsukasa's secret, but this volume provides a small tidbit as she reads texts from a really old book in the study of Nasa's father. Hata seems more focused on building the relationship between Tsukasa and Nasa, and he lays these little hints in each volume to remind you that Tsukasa is not a normal girl. I can't wait to figure out what her secret is!
