Masamune, drags away Kinjirō and grills him for a reason why he was on a holiday with Kanade, however, Kanade ends up eavesdropping and claims that they were lovers. Masamune doesn’t believe her however and states that she trusts Kinjirō more then her but ends up blurting out how he had dinner at her home and they were “skin-to-skin”. Subaru ends up overhearing and runs away upset though Kinjirō manages to catch up and clarify things; he went to Masamune’s house because of her promise to cook him lunch but she then attempted to cure his gynophobia by putting on a bikini and molesting him (hence “skin-to-skin”), this calms down Subaru, although she punches him in the stomach because of his “sexual harassment”.

However Kanade and Subaru manage to coerce him into staying as well by threatening to call the police on him for attempting to “hurt Subaru”.
