The episode synopsis describes protagonist Ko Yamori meeting a new character:
Ko is caught in a sudden downpour and hides under an overpass. He sees this salaryman talking to a high school girl and gets turned down. She notices Ko’s eyes and speaks to him, “You saw it just now, didn’t you?”
“Well, if you’re asking me if you’re for me or not, you’re not” Ko Yamori kicks off this week’s preview trailer. He says that she prefers Nazuna Nanakusa and also asks, “First of all, isn’t Nazuna-chan popular?” Vampire Nazuna Nanakusa expresses her long-standing frustration by revealing that she hates their girl talk. “Don’t you dare lay your filthy hand on my booty, Kabura, or I will indeed kill you,” Nazuna Nanakusa ends the trailer with a threat.
