Plot Edit

Summer As Usual

Menu background after ending

Setsuna visits Sekai at home again and discovers that she has the mumps, meaning that Setsuna will need to fill in at the Radish for a bit longer than expected.

After leaving Sekai's house, Setsuna recalls her encounter with Makoto earlier that day. They reminisced about when they first met at the entrance ceremony, and Setsuna mentions that she has a job near the beach. Makoto introduces her to his little sister, Itaru, and suggests that Setsuna should come hang out after work, as he's usually in the area of the beach during the day.

The next day at work, Setsuna begins having difficulties after encountering some unruly customers, including Katsura Manami. After leaving work, she stops to look at the ocean. Makoto spots her from a distance, but seeing that she's deep in thought, decides not to bother her.


Episode title

The chapter then skips ahead to later in the summer, where Itaru and Otome are playing on the beach. Otome approaches Makoto, who is looking wistfully at the boardwalk. When asked what he's looking for, he simply replies, "I guess she's not coming."

It's implied that Makoto and Setuna do not encounter each other again for the remainder of the summer.

Route Edit

Summer As Usual-0

To get Summer As Usual for chapter 2, when Makoto spots Setsuna after work the day of her first meeting with Manami, allow the "Sneak up on her" option to time out.

Makoto will decide not to bother Setsuna, and the chapter will end with Summer As Usual.

The ending scene of Summer As Usual is very similar to Sweet Summer, with Otome taking the place of Karen.
