We've reached a big event: the junior high school entrance ceremony.​ The boys wear black uniforms with stand-up collars based on mid-19th century European military uniforms and the girls wear navy blazers,​ tan skirts,​ and red ribbon neckties.​ Enter our heroes; Nitori-kun is forced to wear a boy's uniform while Takatsuki-san has to wear a girl's!

Yet one girl - Sarashia Chizuru - draws stares,​ whispers,​ and pointed fingers,​ because this long-haired beauty is wearing a boy's uniform.​ Both Nitori-kun and Takatsuki-san are awed by the girl's courage,​ but Takatsuki-san is particularly vexed by their own faintheartedness.​ They envy more than a few other students who experience such liberty in wearing either uniform and ponder what it ultimately means about themselves.​

Chiba-san is jealous of Takatsuki-san,​ for whom Nitori-kun still carries a torch.​ Maho envies Anna-chan's professionalism as a model.​ And Chii-chan's loyal sidekick,​ Shiri Momoko,​ is intensely jealous of anyone in whom Chii-chan shows the slightest interest.​ And so our protagonists set off on the journey to adolescence.​..

Story and art by Shimura Takakao.​
