Episode Summery Edit

Coach Sasabe expresses concern for Makoto, saying the chemicals in the pool water would 'make ya crazy'. He then asks Makoto to do a favor for him which turns out to be a crime and so Makoto refuses.

The next day, the pool repairs have been completed and Nagisa has finished filling it. The Harus argue among themselves, it escalates and main Haru is shot and killed. The shiny tablets are thrown ceremoniously into the pool and while Makoto and Nagisa chat, Haru jumps in.


On his way back home, Nagisa sees Rei on the train. He is instantly in love and attempts to recruit Rei to join the swim club. Rei rejects him because he's already joined the track team.

The next day at school, Gou shows them a flyer she found in some guy's trash. It's an ad for a pool where they can swim, but they'd need another member. Not that Haru can tell because the only Haru that could read was killed earlier this episode. In his desperation, Haru attempts to recruit new members but he is unsuccessful.
