Nasa and Tsukasa attend a summer festival, and Nasa can’t handle how cute she looks in a yukata! On recommendation from Kaname, Nasa starts reading Shōjo manga to brush up on being romantic with Tsukasa, and his efforts are not in vain. Tsukasa enjoys the uptick in attention and romantic gestures she receives from nasa. Later, Kaname inspires the two to bathe together in the same room at the bath house, but they weren’t actually alone after all, leading to a mildly awkward interaction with a stranger.
This series is technically a shōnen, so it makes the joke of Nasa reading shōjo a little more hilarious. And we've also gotten to another milestone of many shōjo manga - a summer festival with folks in yukatas. Hata is, so far, including a lot of the same hallmarks of a romance story where the couple would be dating rather than married, so it's still clear Nasa and Tsukasa are still getting to know each other and fall more in love with each other. The couple is also getting a little more accustomed to physically showing affection for each other. Nothing lewd happens in panel, but there are moments when Nasa’s head drifts off panel toward parts south of Tsukasa’s neck.
