After being chased by what can only be described as a psycho-fanboy, Kawashima takes refuge at Taiga's condo where she was subjected to hours of torture in the form of what Taiga describes as "Rapid-Fire Impressions". Soon Yusaku, upon learning what happened in Taiga's condo, asks Taiga and Ryuji to befriend Kawashima due to the fact that they know her true self. However, before any progress could take place, Ryuji, Taiga, Minori, and Kawashima takes part in a clean-up event. However, due to Taiga and Kawashima getting into each other's skin, they split into two groups leaving Ryuji with Kawashima. During the event, the same psycho-fanboy appears and at which point Kawashima hides. She then reveals to Ryuji why she transferred school. Unfortunately for the psycho-fanboy, he crosses paths with Taiga, who proceeds to beat him up with her garbage bag when the fanboy tried to take a picture of her. Impressed with Taiga's fearlessness and honesty, Kawashima shows her darker self and chases down the stalker-fanboy and effectively drives him out. After the mishap, she takes shelter at Ryuji's house where she shows a love interest in Ryuji, asking him whether he would fall in love with her by showing her true self...and then, Taiga walks in.
