|1||The Sky-Colored Umbrella|
Yorito Morimiya is a young boy who loves taking pictures of the sky, and one day in the early morning while setting up to take a snapshot of the sunrise, he meets a strange girl. After talking with her for a few minutes, she disappears and is nowhere to be found. The next day, Yorito is coming back from buying some groceries on a rainy night and runs into the same girl; this time he finds out her name to be Matsuri Shihou. Later on, Yorito figures out Matsuri lives in a church and goes to find her. At the same time, Matsuri is being hunted by a mysterious man.
|2||Looking Up at the Blue|
After the fight with Takeshi, Matsuri gets injured and Yorito tries to protect her by bringing her back to his home. After she wakes up, she tries to thank him by making him a meal, but due to her limited knowledge of the modern world, it does not work out. That night, Matsuri intended to leave Yorito's house without him knowing, but stayed to look at the sky painted on the ceiling of Yorito's room.
It has been a week since Matsuri started living with Yorito and he has become visibly suspicious to Mana who wants to find out what he is hiding. Mana comes over one night and tells him that she wants to make him dinner, though after he leaves to buy some seasonings, Mana tries to search the house. While initially unsuccessful, Mana runs into Matsuri eating in the kitchen and they become acquainted.
|4||Two People's Wish|
This episode mainly focuses on the friendship between Yorito's sister Aono and Mana's little sister Koyori, both of whom are staying at the hospital. Koyori, who is to be released soon, has trouble conferring this news to Aono. The relationship between Yorito and his sister is also explored, as more information about the dolls he brings her is revealed.
On a rainy, cloudy day, Matsuri and Yorito go outside and take a boat around the lake. Later on, Matsuri is ambushed by Takeshi in Yorito's home. Overpowered, she is about to give up as she notices the sky-painted ceiling in Yorito's room. This gives her the determination to fight back and flee the house, but only Yorito's eventual intervention prevents Takeshi from killing her.
|6||Blood of a Sacrifice|
Yorito finally decides to introduce Matsuri to Aono under the guise of her being his new girlfriend, but when they go to visit Aono, the latter feigns sleep. Later on, Aono meets with Matsuri in a tram depot where it is revealed that Aono is also a Yaka and her powers are now returning. Aono comes home with Matsuri and Aono tells Yorito that she has permission from the hospital to stay at home for now. After dinner, Matsuri and Yorito go to Yorito's school. At the roof of his school, Matsuri explains the loneliness of Yaka to Yorito. After that, Matsuri kisses Yorito and disappears.
Yorito and Mana search for Matsuri after she disappears on the night she kissed Yorito. Almost a month passes from Matsuri's disappearance, and Yorito has almost given up hope on her return. On a date out with Aono, Yorito accidentally runs into Matsuri again inside a convenience store and gives chase, leaving Aono alone. Yorito catches up to her to find out she has been living with Mayuko in an abandoned building. Aono is left wandering in the rain alone and is angered by Yorito's desire to be with Matsuri. Back in the abandoned building, Matsuri collapses after being stabbed by a piece of glass by a seemingly mentally vacant/unconscious Yorito who seems to be controlled by Aono.
|14||A Different Route|
Chronologically, this episode occurs between episodes four and five of the television broadcast. Koyori wins tickets to a family-oriented spa and water park that just recently opened; Yorito, Koyori, Mana and her friends go together, though Aono has to stay in the hospital. Coincidentally, Takeshi also wins tickets to the spa, and takes Mayuko with him. At the park, Takeshi and Yorito meet, and Takeshi initially chases Yorito since he thinks Matsuri is at the park too, but she also could not go because of her condition of a Yaka. After realizing Matsuri is not at the park, Takeshi calms down, and Yorito meets Mayuko; the rest of Yorito's friends also meet them. After the sun goes down, Matsuri comes to the park, but thankfully Takeshi and Mayuko have already left.
