Despite watching her two-time a pair of guys and embarrass him by asking him out in public, Hikari decides to be her friend and stands up for her as well. The next day, Hikari has caught a cold from Iroha accidentally dragging him into the pool during their punishment together, but insists on coming to school anyways, arriving late.

Live-action film[edit]

A live-action film adaptation directed by Tsutomu Hanabusa and distributed by Warner Bros. was released in Japanese theaters on September 14, 2018.[1][50]

Reception[edit]

In reviewing the anime's first season, Paul Jensen of Anime News Network criticized the animation quality for the first three episodes as "mediocre". However, he praised the storyline and characterizations between Iroha and Hikari.[51] For the final episode, Jensen said that Iroha and Hikari's chemistry was the episode's "saving grace". Although he felt that the season overall "wasted far too much time trying to spice up the drama", Jensen said that it "wasn't terrible, but it never made the most of its strengths".[52]
