Title: Uwasa (噂), Rumors
Date Aired: 27 October 2009
Yano and Yoshida become the talk of the school as everyone starts spreading rumors about them. When they ask who were spreading the rumors, they were surprised to hear that Sawako was behind them. A classmate, Shino, approaches Sawako to ask her about these rumors, although Sawako misunderstands and thinks she is talking about the ghost rumors, so she interrupts her, calling it a simple misunderstanding. Shino tells Sawako she was able to makes friends. At this moment Yano and Yoshida walk up the stairway and overhear the conversation. Shino brings up their names and Sawako quickly interrupts and says "they're not my friends." Before they can hear the rest, the teacher, Pin, drags them off for the purpose of giving Chizuru the baseball club's "Special Training Menu" to deliver to Ryuu. Sawako continues to explain that she isn't on the same level of friendship that is shared between Yano and Yoshida. Later, Sawako overhears some girls talking in the toilets and interprets it as if she's making Yano and Yoshida sad and is ruining Kazehaya's reputation. Later on, Kazehaya tries to talk to Sawako and asks her if he's done something to upset her. She explains that nothing could make her want to stay away from him, but runs away after seeing a group of people walking their way in order to keep Kazehaya's reputation intact.
