Overview[edit | edit source]

Mashiro and Takagi arrive at Mashiro's uncle's apartment. While looking through the boxes of manga names and manuscripts Moritaka goes outside to call his dad and apologize for thinking that his uncle committed suicide. They come across a box that contains all of the letters sent by Miyuki Haruno, Nobuhiro Mashiro's crush. In the box is also a yearbook. They find out that Miyuki is actually Azuki's mother. They decide to go see Azuki's mother and talk with her about her relationship with Nobuhiro Mashiro.
