My Tiny Senpai Episode 5 Ending: Do Shinozaki and Katase Give Each Other Christmas Presents?

On Christmas day, Shinozaki enjoys a party with his colleagues at a restaurant. Akina dresses up as Santa for the day and entertains everyone. After the party, Shinozaki and Katase decide to walk back home together. That’s when they start discussing the most memorable presents that they have received. Shinozaki recalls that he once wanted a specific video game but ended up getting the wrong one. But since it was from Santa, he decided to play it and eventually, it grew on him. He appears to have fond memories of spending hours finishing the game.

When Katase is asked the same question, she immediately says that there was a cute stuffed cat that she once got even though she was really young. She ended up liking it so much that she even took it to the school with her and the teachers called her parents. Katase feels that the two of them have not changed much since their teenage years. Shinozaki notices that her senpai’s hands are freezing and decides to ask her to put them in her jacket. But it turns out that she actually has warm gloves with her.

Katase and Shinozaki notice that there are couples everywhere on the street and feel a bit shy standing next to each other. They decide to head home immediately but Katase first gives Shinozaki the bear loungewear that they had noticed the previous day in the shop. Interestingly, Shinozaki has also thought of the same idea and bought the rabbit one for her senpai. Katase feels that they should show each other how the costume looks on them. Naturally, she and Shinozaki feel embarrassed about the suggestion since it implies that they wear it in front of each other.

Unfortunately, their special moment is when Akina tries to take a photo of them by hiding behind the bush but forgets to turn off the flash. Hayakawa is also with him. Shinozaki and Katase are shocked but they are left dumbfounded when their colleagues start questioning them about the gift and the latter’s idea of showing them to each other. Katase then clarifies she just meant exchanging contact information and sending each other’s photos wearing the costume. After knowing each other for so long, the duo finally give each other their number. Akina and Hayakawa also follow suit when they are pressured.
