There has still been no word about Sentaro, even as graduation soon approaches. While studying at Ritsuko's house, Kaoru tries to get more intimate with her, but she pushes him away his comment about him being happy about Sentaro's disappearance. Kaoru, after apologizing to her, reveals that he is leaving after graduation by train to attend a college in Tokyo. After graduation, he stands outside the record shop and tells an upset Ritsuko that he feels content since he first befriended her. On the night of his departure, he seen off by Tsutomu, as well as his aunt and cousin. Just as the train starts leaving, he sees Ritsuko running along the train, and they manage to exchange one last glance before he leaves town for college. Eight years pass, and Kaoru is now a resident doctor. One day, he meets a now pregnant Yurika, who shows him a picture of a friend's wedding on a small island, and he recognizes Sentaro in the photo. He rushes to the island, and learns that Sentaro is now a priest in training at the local church. Kaoru sees Sentaro's drums in the church, and starts to play "Moanin'" on the organ. Sentaro hears, and goes to the church to join in on drums. The head priest arrives and scolds Sentaro for playing the drums without permission, and Sentaro and Kaoru run out of the church and down the slope. Near the bottom of the slope, they reunite with Ritsuko, who is holding a postcard from Yurika about Sentaro's whereabouts.

Kaoru Nishimi moves to his uncle's house in Kyushu and starts attending the local high school. He meets Shigetora Maruo, the class nerd, Ritsuko Mukae, the class representative, and Sentaro Kawabuchi, the class ruffian. The next day, when Kaoru asks where he can buy records, Ritsuko invites him over to her family's record store. Ritsuko takes him down to the basement after he mentions that he knows how to play the piano. However, Sentaro is already there and will not let Kaoru play any classical music. Sentaro demonstrates his intense jazz drumming. Kaoru and Sentaro have an argument about how to play a jazz song on the piano, and Kaoru leaves the store after purchasing the record for that song, which happens to be "Moanin'" by Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers.
