    During Chie's third year at Ohbi, Chie's mother looked through her husband's cell phone and discovered that he had been in contact with a woman that she did not recognize. She confronted him about it and they got into an argument. He left the family and Chie's mother was devastated.

    Some time later, Chie's father called Chie to discuss the matter. He revealed that he was planning to get a divorce. Chie was furious at his selfishness and devastated by his decision. She subconsciously walked towards Shikanosuke's house but stopped by the Inari Shrine to seek shelter from the rain. Shikanosuke appeared soon after and offered her shelter at his home.

    Later, Chie and her family stayed at her grandparents' house for a full semester to sort out the divorce papers. Her poor attendance caused her to repeat the year.

    Kira Kira

    Chapter 1: Anarchy at the School

    Kirari suggested to Chie to play as a band in the school festival. Initially Kirari wanted the drums but Chie convinced her to be the vocalist because she was too shy to sing. Chie used plastic buckets and magazines as a substitute drum set and eventually requested to rent a studio to practice. There the band met Tonoya and he lent Chie his drum set.

    Chie suggested that Shikanosuke dresses in drag for the performance to appear as an all-girl band. She threatened to reveal to his sister Yuko that he has been selling off her video games for money since he was fired from his part-time job.

    Chapter 2: Road to Ruin?

    At the fireworks festival, Chie expressed her interest in Tonoya. She explained that he was the most matured among the guys.

    During the summer break, Chie received a call from Yagihara. Yagihara's friend who owns a live house at Nagoya called Music Farm invited the Second Literature Club band to play at his live house for its 10th year anniversary. Yagihara suggested that the band go on a tour around Japan. Chie was the only one among them who has a driving license so she volunteered to drive.

    Chie called Yagihara again after the performance and he explained that he had planned for the band to perform at Osaka. There, she suggested composing another original song which they performed successfully.

    On Chie's path, Tomo suggested that the band goes to Kobe to meet Handa. At Kobe, the group watched a performance at a live house. There, Kirari found Handa. He hinted to be interested in Chie. Handa offered them dinner and a night at his house.

    That night, Chie was unable to sleep. She found Handa drinking and he invited her to a nearby park where he played his guitar for her. Later, they returned to his house and they discovered that Shikanosuke was looking for them and was worried for Chie.

    At Okayama, Chie and Shikanosuke discovered 2 men making a scene with Midori. Chie and Shikanosuke told them off and Midori thanked them. She gave them a package and returned home. Later during the drive, Shikanosuke discovered that the package contained a pistol. They called Midori's home and her mother demanded them to return the pistol personally. She explained that Midori had run away again and demanded them to get her back.

    Midori explained that she wanted to live a normal life and her mother refused to listen to her. The next morning, Midori's mother came to pick her up personally. Midori hijacked a truck and attempted to run her over. Chie and Shikanosuke jumped aboard the truck and overturned the truck.

    He yelled at Midori and her mother and demanded them to discuss the matter. They then returned to the live house to perform.

    After reaching Tokyo, STAR GENERATION offered to them to perform one last time at their show. In it, Shikanosuke threw away his girl clothes and apologized for pretending to be a girl during the entirety of the band's existence.

    Midori moved to Tokyo and found the group. She explained that she has discussed her wishes with her mother and she was disowned. Midori explained that she was happy to be able to leave her family. Chie offered to adopt her.

    Chie was absent from school for a few days. Midori explained that Chie's family returned to her grandparents' home to sort out the arbitration of her parents' divorce. Shikanosuke called Chie and she promised to return home. The next day, Midori dragged Shikanosuke along to meet Mayuki, the woman who caused the divorce. Mayuki was revealed to be 5 months pregnant at the time. Midori yelled at her and stormed off.

    That night, Chie called Shikanosuke to her home to accompany her for dinner. She explained that her mother demanded compensation from Mayuki but Chie disagreed with her. Chie heard that Mayuki did not know that Chie's father was married. Chie wanted the matter to blow over quickly but her mother is intent on getting revenge. She then revealed her feelings for Shikanosuke and explained that she had always loved him.

    Early in March, Mayuki visited Chie's home and offered a large sum of compensation. Chie turned it down, forgave her, and expressed her desire to meet her half-brother.
