Overview Edit

Raku and the gang go to a beach in the midst of their summer vacation. Chitoge develops romantic feelings for Raku, much to her anxiousness. Kosaki inadvertently asks an asleep Raku of allowing her to kiss him whereas Chitoge mishears it as Kosaki asking for kimchi. While trying to confirm her feelings, Chitoge is approached by Raku and asks him if they would work out if they ever became a real couple. As a reply, Raku rebukes otherwise, much to Chitoge's heartbreak and causing her to storm off whilst leaving Raku an apology.

During their new semester, Raku and Chitoge get nominated for playing the role of Romeo and Juliet for their upcoming cultural festival, but Chitoge refuses to take the role.

  • Tsugumi's bikini in the anime is slightly different from the manga's.
  • In the manga, a group of people stare at Tsugumi because of her bikini.
  • Marika's bikini in the anime is white and has frills but in the manga, her bikini has diamond design on it and has no frills.
  • The scene where Marika and Chitoge starts touching Tsugumi's breasts isn't exactly shown in the manga. In the manga, you could only read what Tsugumi, Marika, and Chitoge are saying during that scene.

  • As Kosaki and Raku talk to each other at the boardwalk, Raku is shown to be nervous talking to Kosaki because he doesn't know hat to talk about in the manga.
