What happened: In episode 4, Fumi comes out to Akira and tells her about her relationship with Yasuko. Akira doesn’t care, and she and Fumi remain best friends while Fumi continues to date Yasuko. It turns out that when Yasuko attended Fujigaya (the school Akira attends) in middle school, she was in love with Kagami-sensei, a teacher who is engaged to her older sister Kazusa, but she transferred to Matsuoka (the school Fumi attends) after he rejected a love letter that she gave him. In episode 5, Fumi grows uneasy over how popular Yasuko is with other girls, and wonders if Yasuko might love someone else. Kyouko sadly realizes that Yasuko is in love with Fumi, Fumi and Akira both discover that Kyouko loves Yasuko, and Akira feels caught between supporting both Fumi and Kyouko. Yasuko tells Fumi that she really loves her, and invites her to attend the school play at Fujigaya that she’s performing in.
