In "The Case of Ritsu Onodera No.20," Midori Marimo Bookstore is keen on doing a promotional activity, which leads Ritsu to go to a meeting with Takano to learn about the promotion. After the meeting, Takano leans in to kiss Ritsu, but as usual, Ritsu pushes him away. Takano then questions Ritsu about the status of their relationship. Wanting Ritsu's feelings for him to grow, Takano wants to take things to the next level, but Ritsu's wishy-washy and stubborn feelings are preventing that. Haitani later meets with Onodera to return a book he borrowed, and asks Ritsu to date him. Takano intervenes, but Haitani says that it's none of his business since him and Onodera aren't a couple anyway. Ritsu is then dragged back to Takano's apartment and Takano asks Ritsu to hurry up and admit that he loves him so that Takano can say that they're lovers outright. Ritsu then confesses to himself about how if Takano didn't intervene, he would have told Haitani that he already had someone that he loves. Ritsu and Takano then have sex. During this time, Takano once again asks Ritsu to admit his love for him already. In the morning, Takano finds a lovey-dovey magazine that Ritsu owns and teases him for reading it for the purpose wanting to flirt with Takano so badly.
In "The Case of Ritsu Onodera No.21," The Emerald editing department goes on a onsen trip due to receiving the gift from the president of Marukawa Shouten. As the editing department struggle to meet deadlines, Takano invites Ritsu to eat dinner with him. On his way home, Onodera witnesses Mino, a fellow editor in his department having an argument with his son over not conveying how he feels. From this experience, Onodera understands that he needs to tell Takano about his feelings clearly, but has trouble expressing it. They then ride home together and Ritsu struggles to confess, but is able to tell him just a little bit. Ritsu and Takano end up falling asleep together on the train and miss their stop, which results in them heading for a hotel. Unfortunately for Ritsu, the only room available has one double bed. Takano and Ritsu end up sleeping together and Takano asks Ritsu to just confess already. They have sex while Ritsu still questions how to convey his love to him.
In "The Case of Ritsu Onodera No.22," Onodera and the editing group go on the onsen trip and Mino's son ends up coming as well. After they arrive, Mino's son, Yamato, yells at Mino for never paying attention to him then runs off. Ritsu then finds him in the woods and after talking with him, realizes that Yamato just feels lonely. He talks to Yamato and gets him to talk about how he feels with Mino. By doing this, Ritsu also notices that he struggles with the same problem with conveying his thoughts to Takano. They then visit Takano's grandmother's grave and Ritsu is able to show Takano about how much he cares, even about the unimportant things such as Takano's favorite subject in school. Takano and Ritsu then head back to the hotel and head in Ritsu's room as Takano comes onto Ritsu and suggests that Ritsu tried to seduce him by saying that he wanted to know everything about Takano because he cares. Finally learning from his mistakes, Ritsu confesses that he does want to know everything and they begin to start having sex, but then Kisa Shouta comes and interrupts the moment.
