Cover PageEdit

We see an image of Tae Kojima wearing her regular clothes with a bicycle in her hands, in the street where Kei Kurono lives which we see in the background.The image is mad in such a way that she partially emerges from it.


The chapter begins with Tae Kojima alone in her room, crying over Kurono's behavior and her own missing memories of him, despite all the pictures and trinkets she has of them together. She looks in her drawer, finding a mysterious key that doesn't work on her house lock, and deduces that it's for Kurono's apartment.

She goes to Kei's apartment, worried that he might be home, and slowly inserts the key into his lock, finding that it unlocks his door. Regretting her decision, she briefly attempts to leave, but then goes back and enters the apartment.

Once inside, she feels a strange sense of deja vu. She see's the rescued hamster and adores it briefly before then seeing and recognizing the picture she made of Kurono. She then recounts her memories of Kurono, including making dinner with him, watching tv with him, and having sex with him.

Just then, Kurono appears in his apartment, surprised to see her. Embarrassed and frightened, Kojima quickly takes the drawing and attempts to leave, only for Kurono to stop her suddenly. Kurono admits, to her surprise, that he also lost part of his memory, but that he wants it back. He then enlists Kojima's help to regain the memory to which she agrees so that she can regain it too. The chapter ends with a panel of Kei holding Tae's hand.
