SynopsisEdit

It is time for midterms. Tomoko recalls that the previous year she felt she would do well in them and imagined the admiration of her peers. Instead, she received average grades. She lost her motivation to study, her grades dropped, and she recently overheard her parents discussing sending her to a college preparatory school. To avoid this, Tomoko vows to study harder.

She goes to the coffee shop and congratulates herself for having the ability to sit in a cafe. She listens to a "Yandere Boys CD," as she inwardly thinks she cannot study at home without getting distracted. As she imagines other patrons finding a mere high school "cool" for studying in a cafe, thirty minutes pass without her studying.

As Tomoko contemplates her whole reason for studying, a man sits next to her with a laptop. He starts watching an anime, and noticing Tomoko is looking, he turns up the volume enough for her to listen. In this way, she watched two episodes. At home, she watches the rest of the series on her computer.

The next day, in the cafe, the man again sits next to her and watches two more episodes. Afterwards, Tomoko does not feel like studying and returns home. After one week of this, the man finishes the series as Tomoko watches. He finally closes his laptop, turns to her, and remarks that the series was "fun." He notes that she is always at the cafe, to which Tomoko stammers that she has tests to study for. He states he needs to find another place to relax since his work thinks he slacks off too much in the cafe and wishes her good luck on her tests. The following day, the guy does not come so Tomoko finally decides to study.

Back in school, Tomoko happily receives her average midterm scores of between 68% and 76% which she feels will save her from preparatory school. On her way home she passes the cafe and muses over how the man never returned. She is, however, grateful for that experience because it encouraged her to finally study. Feeling she can take a break from studying, she starts rewatching the series at home while thinking she should at least moderately live up to people’s expectations.
