Manaka attempts to instigate another curse when her cursed fish departs to keep Tsumugu happy. Angry about Manaka’s acts toward Tsumugu, Hikari verbally lashes out against her during school while Manaka attempts to balance her friendship with Hikari and her relationship with Tsumugu. Tsumugu, Manaka, Hikari, Chisaki, and Kaname all volunteer to make the offering for the Ofunehiki wherein they discuss Shioshishio and Tsumugu. As Manaka, Hikari, Chisaki, and Kaname leave for the day, they spot Akari kissing a man as she is dropped off at the pier. With relationships between sea people and land people on their mind, the four contemplate their individual concerns on the matter. The next day, Chisaki discovers Tsumugu is making a watering hole but wishes Tsumugu wasn’t so nice. At Uroko’s, Manaka begs to be cursed again being interrupted as elder men of the village dragged Akari to Uroko’s place since due to her being involved with someone from the surface. Hikari and Manaka can only watch on as Tomori takes Akari to Uroko.
