Yui begins to notice the gap developing between Hachiman and Yukino during the usual Service Club meetings. After falling asleep during class, Hachiman is nominated, along with Minami Sagami as 2F's representatives for the committee responsible for Sōbu High School's upcoming cultural festival. At the committee meeting, Minami nominates herself to be its president in order to further her own social reputation as well as self-actualization. That evening, Yukino decides on suspending the Service Club for the festival when Minami and her clique visit and ask for their assistance in running the festival committee. Yukino solely accepts, upsetting Yui who makes Hachiman look out for her if anything goes wrong. As the committee starts preparing, Yukino, as the vice-president overwhelms Minami in her understanding and tactical management of the various priorities that encompass the festival. Later, Hachiman is able to dodge being a part of Hina's yaoi play due to his committee duties. Meanwhile, Haruno shows up at the committee and tries to apply for a musical performance much to Yukino's reluctance, but, after arriving late, Minami approves, in an attempt to get back at Yukino for taking the committee's spotlight. Afterwards, Minami suggests that they take a break and help enjoy setting up for the festival to Yukino's disapproval. Eventually the remaining committee members divide the work amongst themselves, with Yukino efficiently taking on most of it. Hayato and Meguri Shiromeguri grow concerned over Yukino's division of work, but her initial stance is indirectly justified by Hachiman, causing her to reconsider. Minami arrives to check their progress and basically makes Yukino her committee proxy before leaving to enjoy setting up. Yukino takes most of the work home and the following day fails to show up at school because of a cold according to Shizuka.
