Kokoro is firm around Wallaby as usual, which he is dissatisfied with. When Kokoro is at school and Wallaby is bored, Emi comes to her house, discovers Wallaby and takes him with her. When Kokoro comes home, she is unable to find Wallaby and, encouraged by Lalilalulala, starts worrying that Wallaby might have run away because of her cold behaviour.


  • Kokoro comments on how she wanted to try being nicer but how it's not going well.
  • When Kokoro looks for Wallaby, she wonders if he might have gone somewhere with Lalilalulala, since they have had a lot of interaction including discussing the possibility of Wallaby becoming human again.



Cultural References[]

  • The TV in Kokoro's room.
