The previous episode showcased Mina Ichinose joining as an employee at the bookstore. Sajou was completely startled by this move, as the quietest girl in the school was seeking a job. However, through her behaviour, it seemed like she wasn’t fit for the role. Because every time a customer approached her, she used to cry and lacked communication skills.

Sajou saw all this and advised her to quit the job as it was becoming difficult to retain customers. Later that day, the protagonist shares the course of events with Aika and Ashida over a video call.

Aika suggested that he should understand the other person and stop being harsh on their employees. She wanted him to handle the situation delicately and try to listen to what the other person was saying.

The next day turned out to be a miracle as Mina was a completely different person. She talked to the customer and seemed more confident. However, she also started sharing some more private stuff with Sajou. She confided it by saying she wanted to become independent.

The upcoming 9th episode will precisely show how Mina will find her way through the obstacles and deal with her situation with her brother.
