  • Following up on the recent race between Impact Blue and the Eight-Six, Sayuki invites Takumi to the local water park. Itsuki and Kenji invite themselves too, bringing in Iketani and Mako. Iketani thinks about giving his relationship with Mako another try. However, at the park, after Mako asks him to meet with her that night to fulfill the promise of making her a woman, Iketani learns that Mako carries a photo of Ryousuke Takahashi, and she has had a crush on him! Iketani ponders standing her up, until he is convinced otherwise, but it may be too late.moreless

    • (Ryosuke and Keisuke are practicing on Akina) Ryosuke: (Thinking to himself) My theory evolves with each new piece of data. Be patient Eight-Six! When my theory is complete you'll be on my defeated list.

    • (Admiring the view at the beach) Itsuki: (Overwhelmed) I'm glad we came, Kenji! Kenji: (Also overwhelmed) Itsuki, this is paradise! It's amazing!

    • Mako: (Blushing) Iketani... You remember our promise by the lake, don't you? It came out wrong so you may have misunderstood me, but I didn't mean it like a deal. Would you make me a woman?

    Trivia (1)

    • The English dub euphemizes all sexual implications on Mako’s requests. While the sub talks about virginity and “make me a woman”, the dub has Maya asking Cole about “being her first” boyfriend. Nevermind that on the waterslide, both sub and dub talk about body parts touching.
