Ayane and Chizuru see this and pull Sawako aside to find out what happened. After Sawako explains to Ayane and Chizuru about what Kazehaya said the two days, Ayane looks upon the situation and tries to explain things to Sawako. After Sawako leaves for classroom duty, Ayane and Chiruzu find Kazehaya and Ryu in the hallway, and Ayane kicks Kazehyaya and tells him to stop avoiding Sawako. Chizuru asks Ayane what that was all about, and Ayane says "well, the girl Kazehaya likes acts like she's terrified of him.", and Chizuru goes crazy, feeling sorry for Sawako that Kazehaya likes someone. Chizuru finally realizes that the girl Kazehaya likes is Sawako, and Ayane and Chizuru argue on why it's such a problem. Chiruzu thinks back at what she said to Kazehaya the previous day and realizes that she screwed up and if she doesn't do something soon things are going to go badly. Sawako enters the classroom, and everyone starts praising her on how amazing her study sessions are. Inside, Kazehaya watches Sawako from the back of the classroom, with a dejected look on his face. 
05 "The Person That I Like"
"Suki na Hito" (すきな人) 
February 9, 2011[7]
With the first semester midterms over, everyone's recognizing Sawako for her review session, praising her. Sawako's class decides on having "Sawako's Black Magic Cafe" as their exhibition, using Sawako's herbs to make tea, and having an additional "Ask Sawako" advice booth. Sawako and Kazehaya are still awkward and silent towards each other, which Ayane notices and worries Chizuru. Next day, Ayane goes over to Chizuru's house to help her get ready for Toru's Wedding. The wedding ends without a hitch and Chi solidifies her sibling-like relationship with Toru. Afterwards, Chizuru asks Ryu to follow up with Kazehaya, feeling guilty about what she said to him. Ryu initially refuses but concedes, saying he would only listen to his problems. Later, Kento approaches Sawako, who's tending to her garden. Back in the cafeteria, Ryu, still keeping in mind what Chizuru said, asked Kazehaya, bluntly, if he had confessed already or not. As Kazehaya's explaining his confusion and worry, Pin arrives, teases him about not having confessed yet and mocks him, telling him to confess to Sawako already. Kazehaya, determined, runs out, searching for Sawako (Pin told him where she was). Out in the courtyard, Kento and Sawako are discussing how Sawako's finally fitting into class (which she hadn't noticed, and shocks her). She receives a mental shock when Kento says that Kazehaya was probably looking out for her because she was an outcast, and since now she's not, he probably wouldn't talk to her anymore, and that he is in love with someone (both not realizing it's Sawako herself). Sawako, distraught, walks away and starts to cry. Kento tries to cheer her up, and ends up asking her out in the flow of things, only to be drowned out by Sawako's thoughts and the arrival of Kazehaya. 
06 "Affection and Annoyance"
"Kōi to Meiwaku" (好意と迷惑) 
February 16, 2011[8]
Kazehaya walks out on Sawako and Kento, with Kento grasping Sawako's arms and Sawako crying. Kazehaya asks what Kento is doing, and why Sawako is crying. Three of Kazehaya's friends walk over, to find Kazehaya angry, Sawako crying, and Kento just being there. When the three of them fool around and say that Kazehaya and Kento are both going after Sawako, Kazehaya finally cracks and confesses his love to Sawako. Sawako takes the confession as a misunderstanding and tells Kazehaya that if he says it that way, people will get the wrong idea. Kazehaya finally walks away, and Sawako follows. Kazehaya and Sawako skip class, and when Kazehaya asks her if she likes him, she says yes, but Kazehaya takes it in the way as just being friends and walks off, leaving Sawako alone in the alley. Pin finally finds Sawako, and after Sawako tells Pin that she has been rejected by Kazehaya, Pin tries to cheer her up. Ayane and Chizuru are also looking for Sawako and they have a feeling that Kento was a major part of it. They ask Kento where she is, and Kento says that she's outside by the benches. Kento tries to follow, but is interrupted by Kurumi, who makes Kento tell her what happened. Pin is still outside comforting Sawako, but is interrupted by Ayane and Chizuru. They ask what happened to Sawako, and before Ayane finished explaining something, Chizuru breaks out in tears and tells Sawako that she's being wrong, and Kazehaya is only angry because of the actions that Sawako took. Chizuru finally takes off, Ayane following her. The episode ends with Sawako asking herself if she had really done her best with Kazehaya up until this point. 
07 "Just Give Up"
"Akirame Chimae Yo" (あきらめちまえよ) 
February 23, 2011[8]
The class is finally starting to prepare for the school festival, and everyone is wondering where Sawako is, in which Chizuru and Ayane say that she had somewhere else to be. Ryu finds Kazehaya outside as soon as he is done with baseball practice, and asks Kazehaya how his confession went. Kazehaya tells Ryu he was rejected, and that the rejection hurt a lot more than he thought it would, though he is unaware that Kurumi overheard the conversation, and she runs off to find Sawako. After confronting Sawako, Kurumi snaps at Sawako and tells her that she is hurting Kazehaya, and that since Kurumi actually told Kazehaya how she felt for him, that they were not on the same level. That night, Kazehaya and Pin run into each other, and Pin starts yelling at Kazehaya for rejecting Sawako. Kazehaya explains that he was rejected, and Pin tells Kazehaya to just give up on Sawako, and walks off, leaving Kazehaya to think for himself. The next day people are talking about the "battlefield" between Kazehaya, Sawako, and Kento, and after Sawako hears people talking about it, she says it was all a misunderstanding and that the meaning of "like" is different, not realizing Kazehaya is standing right there. Ayane and Chizuru take Kento away, as he had said very loudly that Kazehaya liked Sawako in front of everyone. Ayane gets mad at Kento, and starts yelling at him, when Kurumi interrupts. Kento asks Kurumi what she did after she learned about what happened between Kazehaya and Sawako, and Ayane and Chizuru start questioning her. They find out that Kurumi stopped Sawako from giving Kazehaya the Valentine's Day Chocolate and told her off. Kento also finds out that Kurumi likes Kazehaya, and asks her if it would make it easier for her if he went out with Sawako. Kurumi slaps Kento across the face and tells him not to get ahead of himself. Kurumi also says that she didn't think she would lose to such a weak girl, and runs off. After Kento finally gets everything straight through his head, Ayane and Chizuru leave him. Sawako goes in the library, telling herself that she really didn't tell Kazehaya how she was feeling, or anything like that, and that she really wasn't doing anything up to this point. 
08 "To You"
"Todoke" (届け) 
March 2, 2011[8]
The School Festival begins and everything goes well. In the end Sawako doesn't care if Kazehaya likes someone or not, and she gets ready to confess to him. 
09 "Confession"
"Kokuhaku" (告白) 
March 9, 2011[8]
Despite being nervous and embarrassed, Sawako goes to the classroom to confront Kazehaya. Before Sawako has a chance to tell Kazehaya how she feels, Kazehaya apologizes to her for making her cry and angry, and that he would listen to her no matter what, because his feelings wouldn't change. He then says that Chizuru and Ayane are probably outside, but Sawako interrupts and says that she came to talk to Kazehaya, not to Chizuru or Ayane. Sawako tells Kazehaya about people apologizing to her for everything she did, and that she was thankful that Kazehaya smiled and said "thank you". She thanks him for his smiles, kindness, and telling her his hidden feelings. Kazehaya is about to say something when Sawako interrupts with "I like you", and keeps on repeating it. Kazehaya pulls Sawako into the classroom by the hand and shuts the door. Meanwhile, Joe is looking outside for Kazehaya and Pin is looking for Sawako. When Chizuru and Ayane tell Pin she went home, Pin heads towards the classroom to look for Kazehaya. However, Kazehaya and Sawako are hugging to the side of the classroom door, unaware of anything else. They stare right at each other, Kazehaya realizing they both have the same feelings, and Sawako still being confused. After a minute Joe walks into the classroom and Kazehaya and Sawako pull away from each other. Sawako runs off, and Kazehaya becomes embarrassed and upset. Later that night, Ayane and Chizuru ask how the talk went, and Sawako says she wasn't able to say 1/10 of her feelings to Kazehaya. Pin walks in and pulls Sawako outside, where Sawako breaks down and tells Pin she can't look at Kazehaya without secret feelings. Pin replies that everyone has a heart, so Kazehaya probably has the same feelings. He runs off, telling her not to worry about it and for her to do well in the solo performance. He's heading home when he realizes he said something "super wonderful" and runs off to find Kazehaya. Kazehaya is sending a text to someone when Pin barges in telling him that it's okay to have secret feeling and such, but Kazehaya tells him to go home. Pin is still yelling outside when Kazehaya finally sends his text. Ayane and Chizuru wish Sawako good luck, as she is going to talk to Kazehaya again tomorrow. The end of the episode shows the text was to Sawako, and both of them are wishing for tomorrow to come so they can see each other again. 
10 "From Now On"
"Koko kara" (ここから) 
March 23, 2011[9][n 1]
The class finishes the costumes. For the solo performance in her class' costume parade Sawako once again plays a ghost, this time acting out the reemergence of Okiku from the well from the Japanese ghost story (kaidan) Banchō Sarayashiki. Kazehaya ensures that Sawako knows his feelings. 
11 "After the Festival"
"Matsuri no Ato" (祭りのあと) 
March 30, 2011[9]
With the school festival finally over, Sawako leaves home to go to an after the festival party. She meets up with Kazehaya and they continue walking to the party. When they get there they find Joe reenacting all of the details from when Sawako and Kazehaya confessed to each other. Everyone is saying that Sawako got Kazehaya with black magic, but Kazehaya immediately clears up that misunderstanding. After the party the class goes to the beach, where Kento pulls Kazehaya aside and tells him why Sawako was crying the other day. Pin also pulls Sawako aside to ask her if she told Kazehaya about her secret feelings. Kazehaya walks over and Pin makes him ask Sawako out, but while Kazehaya was at a loss for words Pin shouted "WILL YOU MARRY ME!" causing a misunderstanding on Sawako's part. Kazehaya follows her after she ran off, and she explains that she didn't take it seriously, when Kazehaya thought she did. After that was cleared up, Kazehaya finally asks out Sawako, who accepts, and Sawako tells Kazehaya about her secret feelings. Ayane, Chizu, Kento, and Kurumi are watching from above. The next day in school everyone has heard about the confession and now that Sawako and Kazehaya are dating. People go up to Sawako, hoping she can help them find boyfriends/girlfriends. In the classroom, Kazehaya tells everyone, under influence by Ayane, that Sawako is his girlfriend. Everything is no longer chaotic, Kento sees how perfect Sawako and Kazehaya are together, and he expresses his feelings in his thoughts that no one would have thought Sawako would win Kazehaya and Kurumi would end up with a broken heart. At the end of the episode the girls from Class A who bullied Sawako find out about Kazehaya and Sawako's new relationship. 
12 "Important Person"
"Daiji na Hito" (大事な人) 
March 30, 2011[9]
The show starts with many students crowding up the locker area in the morning just as Sawako reaches school with Ayane & Chizuru. News about her current girlfriend-boyfriend relationship with Kazehaya has gotten out. Kazehaya is later made to announce and clearly state his and Sawako's relationship so as to avoid further misunderstandings. Sawako then goes to confront Kurumi after overhearing Ayane saying to Chizuru that 'there's one girl who's definitely crying' The same group of girls who harassed Sawako in the bathroom in season one gossips and badmouth Sawako near the windowsills and is heard by Kurumi who interfered with the conversation. They throw accusations at each other not long before Sawako appears standing in a distance, just listening to their talk. The group of girls go up against Sawako to tell her off and starts insulting her before Kurumi defended Sawako by simply saying 'Kazehaya will not forgive you if you hurt her' which the girls then threatened to tell Kazehaya Kurumi's illdoings. Kurumi simply urged them to and said that 'let him think of you for what you told him' as Kazehaya greatly dislike tattlers. Kurumi walks off. The girls try to follow after only to be stopped by Sawako who determinedly said to let her as she was Kurumi's true rival. The girls irritated with Sawako tried to follow only to be stopped again by Chizuru and Ayane who somewhat tell them off while comforting them by stating the harsh reality that 'you only hate Sawako because Kazehaya is in love with her now' At the rooftop, Sawako tells Kurumi that she has confessed and they're dating, even though Kurumi already knows from the many gossips. Just as Sawako was about to leave, Kurumi stops Sawako and confesses that the only reason she had the courage and confidence to profess her love for Kazehaya back then was because of Sawako. Sawako stares in surprise as Kurumi walks off without a word. Later near the locker area, just as Kurumi was about to leave, Miura approaches Kurumi and asks if she would have been happy if he were to have managed to make Sawako fall in love with him which Kurumi promptly replied no as it was impossible. Kurumi also mentions her surprise at how Sawako did not thank her nor apologize earlier at the rooftop but is glad as Kurumi would have punched her if she did. Ayane then appears, touching Kurumi's shoulders, somewhat comforting her, telling she and Kazehaya would never have been possible but that Kazehaya would have forgiven her if he knew all of what she'd done, which Kurumi thought about for a moment bitterly and said she didn't need Ayane to tell her that before walking off in tears, with Muira and Ayane following behind. Sawako and Chizuru is seen near their class's little garden tending to the flowers. Sawako is upset at not being able to say more to Kurumi on the rooftop, and Chizuru comforts Sawako and tells her it was the right thing to do and that she would have done the same. Ryu and Kazehaya approaches them which Chizuru quickly takes up the opportunity and grab Ryu's arm running off leaving Sawako and Kazehaya alone together. As they walked off, Ryu catches Chizuru offguard by telling her he likes her. Chizuru is surprised. She runs after Ryu, bumps him in the back and tells him she already knew that. Sawako and Kazehaya part ways outside their school. Kazehaya is seen riding away before Sawako stops him but when Kazehaya turns around, replies saying its nothing although she might have wanted to mention about Kurumi. Sawako is seen crying for Kurumi's situation and promises to herself that she will treasure Kazehaya always, as a way to honor Kurumi. (After the credits) Kazehaya goes on a date with Sawako. After spending a day together, Sawako and Kazehaya seats on a nearby park as she hands him his rightful Christmas gift and valentine chocolates. Kazehaya puts on the cap immediately and gobbles up the chocolates commenting on how good it tastes. Sawako cries, saying she never had to courage to until now and that she does not know how to be a good girlfriend. Kazehaya embraces her, telling it is not a job and to just be herself.
