It's New Year's, so time for the traditional visit to the shrine, as well as a New Year's fair. And so Yuuto and friends are at the fair, where Nobunaga is geeking out over the miko (shrine maiden), along with his equally nerdy friends. Only Yuuto is not that impressed with the festivities, as it's all things he has presumably seen and done for years. Haruka as well shows up to the shrine festivities, but before she and Yuuto can pair up, a gaggle of girls from their school arrives to claim Haruka for themselves. Escorted by this squad of girls, Yuuto and Haruka can't get together, until much later in the night.
And when they do, the show pretty much turns into an old fashioned romance, like something out of the 1950s. Including a musical score that is slightly reminiscent of that era. The director for this episode really knows his old movies, as there are interesting little touches, such as showing the waves coming in along the beach when Yuuto and Haruka are about to kiss at one point.
