Shikimori's Not Just a Cutie - Season 1 - Episode 10

Preparations are underway for the school's athletic festival. Izumi-kun was hoping to avoid being placed in the highlight event, the boys and girls mixed relay, but unluckily enough, that's exactly what he's chosen for.

The gang wastes no time starting to practice for the race, but it doesn't go so well for Izumi-kun and Hachimitsu. They refuse to give up, continuing to practice until the day of the festival comes. Hachimitsu seems to be in very low spirits before their event starts...
