Fuutarou once again attempts to tutor the sisters, only to be interrupted by Nino. Fuutarou then decides to go home only to return shortly thereafter as he forgets his wallet. Unfortunately, he encounters a half-naked girl — covered only with a towel — who he presumed to be Miku but turns out to be Nino who starts talking to Fuutarou thinking that he is Miku. Seeing books about to fall onto Nino, Fuutarou tries to save her but accidentally falls on top of her. Both frantically try to make sense of the situation until Itsuki returns home to see this scene and takes a photo.

List of characters in order of their appearance:

  • "I'm sorry Uesugi-san, but I can't ignore people in trouble!" - Yotsuba Nakano[page 6]
  • "You won't get it if I tell you. Isn't figuring that out is your job?" - Miku Nakano[page 14]
  • "This house is for the five of us. There's no room for him here.." - Nino Nakano[page 20]


  • This is the last chapter of Volume 1, and there is a scene of Fuutarou seeing a half-naked Nakano sister. In the first chapter of Volume 1, Chapter 1, one of the Nakano sisters saw a half-naked Fuutarou.
  • The scene where a Nakano Quintuplet accidentally injures her arm by slapping it into a hard surface is a pattern shown several times in the series.
