Title: Sekigae (席替え), Seating Change
Date Aired: 13 October 2009
It was another day, but it was no ordinary day. It was a rainy day. Not only that, it was Seat Change Day. However, because of Class I-D's fear of the notorious "Sadako", they avoid being her seatmate in fear of being cursed. Sawako, on the other hand, accepts this fact. Suprisingly, Kazehaya sits beside her, and also a few of her classmates, namely, Chizuru, Ayane and Ryuu. This is a start of a new beginning.
This episode was adapted from the second chapter of the manga Kimi Ni Todoke: Changing Seats.
