Coming home, Kyosuke is surprised to see dozens of beautiful models his father is photographing. Takashi (his father) says that this is the only work available.
At school, all the boys like the pictures Hatta took of the girls in other classes. Yuhsaku shows up and asks to talk to Kyosuke alone on the roof. Kyosuke thinks he's going to beat him up for something he's done, but Yuhsaku instead begs him not to let Hikaru go into modeling. Madoka shows up, and we learn that Hikaru is going to have a photographer take pictures of her this Sunday. Yuhsaku found this out the other day when he asked her to go to a concert with him the following Sunday. Both Kyosuke and Yuhsaku are afraid of what would happen to their Hikaru-chan if the photographer takes advantage of her. Hikaru then appears and tells her ``darling'' about her chance to break into modeling.
Ayukawa later tells Kyosuke not to worry, that she will be going with Hikaru to see that nothing bad happens.
That Sunday, Kyosuke is surprised that his father is working that day. Kyosuke himself is asked to help by his father. Komatsu and Hatta show up, asking to assist, but really wanting to get pictures of Kyosuke's sisters. Everyone meets at the train station, and we learn that the person who will be photographing Hikaru is Takashi himself, Kyosuke's father, who didn't know that this pretty girl he was going to photograph was his son's girlfriend.
At the beach, Hikaru models for Takashi, with Kyosuke assisting. Ayukawa decides to go home, but Takashi asks Kyosuke if he couldn't take Ayukawa's picture as well, and Kyosuke goes after Ayukawa, asking her not to go home.
Ayukawa models for Takashi, who is impressed with her. Later, at school, Kyosuke tries to give Ayukawa a picture he likes, one of her and him walking by the beach that his father snapped, but accidentally shows her one of him and Hikaru, making Ayukawa mad. He puts the correct picture in her shoe locker for her to find later.
