Kaname suddenly confesses his feelings to Chisaki in front of her parents. Hikari and Manaka do their best to go on with the Ofunehiki, hearing that if the Sea God gets his powers back, the disaster that is to befall their world may be stopped.
Uroko-sama tells everyone that the Sea God's powers have become much smaller than they used to be, and that the saltflake snow will continue to fall both in the sea and on the surface until the world is cold and gray.
Miuna makes a snow sea slug out of the saltflake snow that has fallen. Meanwhile, Hikari thinks about how his father is doing alone in the sea. In the sea, Uroko-sama gathers everyone to tell them of the calamity that is about to come.
After school, the classmates gather for the final stretch finishing the Ojoshi-sama. After completing the Ojoshi-sama, they wonder if it's possible to somehow do an actual Ofunehiki like they used to do with the surface and the sea working together.
The students get together for swimming class. The sea kids are getting used to school on land. The teacher is going to be timing them today, but as the kids groan in response Hikari and Tsumugu's rivalry fires up.
Akari is able to tell Uroko-sama and her father how she feels about Itaru, and is starting to smile a little again. Hikari sees that and feels a little better and heads to school. While on their way to school, Chisaki is late and walking on her own.
Hikari finds out that Akari's boyfriend is the father of the girl who had been fighting him, Miuna. Miuna asks him to help break them up. The next day, they are in a cooking class with Umimura kids. Manaka encourages the kids to try the food they cooked.
The older men of the village round up Akari and Hikari and the others try to stop them. They learn about the rule that if you are seeing someone from the surface, you will be banished from the village.
Manaka ends up with a fish face on her knee because of Uroko-sama's curse. Meanwhile, Hikari gets annoyed that Manaka and Tsumugu are talking and tells him to not concern himself with the people of Umimura.
