Sitting in the car, both talk about themselves and their relationship; Miho realises she's always been on Moritaka's right. wonderng if that's why he choose a foriegn car. Moritaka explains the car was his uncle's dream when he came to propose to Miho's mother.

Unable to get the words he wants to say out, Moritaka decides to drive off; however, it's a rather slow pace. Even a passerby looks confusedly at them. They arrive at Miho's old house, which she reveals is still owned by her family; her mother liked the area, and came to clean it once a week. The reason behind Moritaka bringing Miho here is because Nobuhiro's diary suggested that going the first place they had talked to each other will allow him to gather the courage needed to propose. Miho thinks about how this place is the only place they've actualy talked face-to-face, and the place they promised each other all those years ago; she suddently realizes Moritaka's plan.

Miho tells Moritaka she's glad he hasn't changed the ten years since their promise was made, standing at the door. Moritaka is overwhelmed by the memory of the night of their promise, finaly gathering his courage. Saying  now that their dream has come true, will she marry him? Miho agrees, asking if Moritaka remembers their other promise; he doesn't. She runs up to him and they share their first kiss. Both blushing, Miho says they'll be together from now on.


  • Miho makes an excellent point, she's always been on Moritaka's right whenever they've been together.
  • Miho is shown to be shorter than Moritaka, given she needed to stand on her toes, even in high-heels.
  • In the last episode of the third season of the anime, the title of Ashirogi Muto's new work is also 'Dreams and Reality (Tentative)' (夢と現実 (仮) Yume to Genjitsu (Kari)).
