Nasa and Tsukasa go on a sort of honeymoon to a hot springs with a private bath in their room, but both are too shy at the beginning to bathe in front of each other. By the end of the trip, they are able to get into the same bath but only at night with the lights off. We also finally meet someone claiming to be Tsukasa's guardian, and she chides Tsukasa for not bringing Nasa around for her approval, but gives it by the end of the conversation. When they get home, they decide to get an air conditioner for their small apartment and they find relief from the hot summer days, but they can’t agree on a temperature at night, vacillating between too hot or too cold with just a few degrees adjustment.
This is still such a sweet series that I'm starting to think this could be categorized as Iyashikei (manga that has a "healing" effect), because I feel so calm after reading one of these volumes. It's still gnawing at me that there's something different about Tsukasa, especially that it seems she has a very extended lifespan, so how or when we're going to deal with all that is still the biggest mystery of this series. I'm glad there was at least some slight progress with the introduction of Tsukasa's guardian.
