In episode 4, Izumi reveals to Fumiya that she is interested in Shuuji Nakamura, but he spends considerable time playing ‘Attack Families.’ She invites Fumiya to her home, so he can teach her how to play the game. At the school, Fumiya admits to Fuuka that he wasn’t reading the novels by her favorite author all those times when she saw him with the books in the library, adding that he was coming up with strategies for ‘Attack Families.’ Fumiya shyly adds that he would now like to read those novels.

While he is heading to meet Aoi, two students belonging to Shuuji’s clique interrupt him and guide him to the computer class, where Shuuji has set up his gaming devices to play ‘Attack Families.’ Fumiya accepts Shuuji’s challenge reluctantly but defeats him every time they play. Soon, Aoi, Izumi, Erika, and Erika’s two friends show up in the classroom and witness Shuuji’s defeats. Erika, whom Shuuji rejected earlier, takes this opportunity to mock Shuuji and ‘Attack Families.’ This prompts Fumiya to snap at Erika in anger uncharacteristically.

After the rest of the students depart, Aoi and Fumiya are the only ones left in the classroom. The latter observes that the Aoi didn’t say anything during the entire exchange. In episode 5, Fumiya might start reading Fuuka’s favorite author’s works, and a strong connection might develop between him and the girl.
