Synopsis

This chapter is broken up into temporally continuous one to two page titled stories.

First Day of Summer Break

Tomoko spends her first day of summer playing video games and watching films. In her bed at night she giggles over the fun she had which keeps an irritated Tomoki awake.

Second Day

On the second day, Tomoko surfs the net and watches gameplay videos as the higurashi cry outside.

Third Day

The day after that, she reads scary stories until 3 A.M. and ends up becoming too scared walk to the bathroom alone. Tomoko contemplates using the trash can but ultimately decides to wake up Tomoki and make him accompany her or risk having her go right in his room. Afterwards, she confesses that she wet herself a bit and forces him to wait for her while she takes a shower.

Fourth Day

Tomoko realizes she has not walked outside once during her break. She searches for some activities and sees a reference to "fireworks" which causes her to blush and reach for her tissue box.

Fifth Day

Tomoki and his friends play a soccer video game in his room as they discuss various social plans. A wide-eyed Tomoko listens to their conversation through her wall.

Sixth Day

Insomnia clutches Tomoko as she realizes she has done nothing during her break. She panics, pounding her wall, which wakes her brother. She begs for someone to save her; he screams for her to shut up.

Seventh Day

A languid Tomoko walks back from a store in the evening. She invites Tomoki to set of fireworks. He declines then adds "normally you. . ." and stops. Tomoko picks up his dialogue: "I see, you wouldn't normally do that." She promises to give him ice cream if he will at least watch her set them off

He watches her from his window as she sets them off by herself. He observes that July is almost over. The manga ends with the observation: "The one person who'd watch her is her brother after all!!"
