Still dressed as Kotori, Takanashi gets some surprisingly sound love advice from Kirio Yamada, who instantly sees through his disguise. Meanwhile, Takanashi and Sat? become curious about how assistant chef Souma hasn’t been snooping into people’s businesses lately.

After being told by Popura to confront his problem, S?ta asks Mahiru Inami about which form he prefers.
