U1 awakens upon hearing Nayuki's voice, and found out that its only the alarm clock. Very soon though, many alarm clocks rings simultaneously in Nayuki's room. U1 went over and tried to call Nayuki to stop them, but she's still in lalaland. U1 cannot take it any longer and stopped them in record time, after which he shook Nayuki hard and finally woke her up.

They then ate breakfast. Nayuki commented that U1 ate his toast plain, and U1 replied that he doesn't like jams. Akiko then said that not all jams are bad and proceeds to take out her jam. Nayuki acts strange and left her food untouched, saying that she has to go school.

U1 is saved by Nayuki, who comes over to get him. Before they go, Akiko wants him to get her some goceries for dinner, which he obliged.

On the way to school, U1 asked Nayuki what that jam was, but Nayuki doesn't know either. All she knows was that her mom liked that jam.

U1 felt that it was too cold, but Nayuki says its considered a warm day. U1 then wanted to go home, but is stopped by Nayuki.

If you watched Episode 1, you will notice that familar location (not captured in my screens). Its where Nayuki said "fight" to U1. U1 seems not to remember it, making Nayuki sad... And she said that he should make a point to remember what people said.

Realising that they were late for school, they ran the rest of the journey to school. U1 was exhuasted when they reached to shoe lockers but Nayuki was totally fine!

U1 was placed in the same class as Nayuki. One thing I like here is that the teacher seems real, compared to generic cartoons.

Kaori looked great! :P

After school, Nayuki has her Track and Field CCA, Kaori has her Literature CCA and Kitakawa follows Kaori, though she ignores him. U1 and Nayuki was walking on the second floor, speaking some stuff that I couldn't catch until the part where U1 mentioned to Nayuki not to tell the class of their relationship as cousins. But Nayuki already told everyone ^^. U1 chased her and Nayuki suddenly slipped and fell, crashing into Mai and Sayuri.

U1 stares at Sayuri for sometime, leading her to say "What?" (though i muz admit the 3 girls looked great in such a position)

As they go off, U1 commented that they are 3rd years students.

U1 then left Nayuki and he went to look around the school campus. Nayuki did gave him advice to be more careful, but...

After bumping into some unexpected events, he was finally saved by Kaori. On their way out, Kaori said to U1 about how happy Nayuki is over him.

At the gate, they parted, leaving Kitakawa in the school. -_- (This one minute of self commentary by U1 is bloody Kyon-like)

So, at the shopping street, U1 heard someone shouting "Outta my way" again, taking a good look, it was Ayu again -_-. He blocked her and knocked her down but was lead by her to run away again. No prize for guessing what happened.

They ran to a street and lost their way. It was here that Ayu found that U1 was the U1 she's looking for. She ran towards him but he dodged her, making her knock HARD into a tree. Uguu~

The ensuring snow also caused Shiori (name not mentioned yet) After some tussle with Ayu, they helped Shiori gather her stuff and they walked with Shiori. Before Shiori left, U1 remember and asked Shiori for the way out.

After taking Ayu to the Taiyaki store and getting a scolding by the storeowner, the two made a promise to see each other again. U1 seems troubled by it...

After buying some goceries, U1 was about to go home when (Makoto) a girl stopped in front of him and claimed to want her revenge with him. However she couldn't even make a proper hit and fainted soon after.

Some Difference between the 2 versions. First was the Alarm clock sound. This sounded more like an Alarm clock, though I admit I like the Toei's sound better, coz it feels more Genki. The animation's still top notched compared to Episode 1.

Side Notes. Kyon of winter. The Rendition of U1 is really similar....

In Toei's version, the Alarm clock was placed on U1's bed. In KyoAni's version, its on the table, which is more possible.

Lastly, Nayuki's much more kawaii in the current version. ^^ She looked like a sleeping beauty compared to the Toei version.
