|Episode 12 - The School Festival is Here|
Mikan learns about the School Festival coming up, where each ability class puts on their own event... but her special class wants to give up because they never manage to come up with anything good...
Mikan sees Natsume reading a book alone in a classroom while everyone else is busy doing work for the festival.. he explains that the dangerous class isn't allowed to participate in the festival. Then Mikan sees the book he's reading, and gets the idea for her class to put on an RPG battle event.
When the class goes to Jinno-sensei, the mean teacher, to ask them about putting on this event, he refuses, saying he doesn't want the specials taking part in the festival anymore because he doesn't want to embarrass the school.. Mikan gets in an argument with her classmates when she's the only one who doesn't want to give up and wait until next year to try doing this event... she goes and sits with Natsume by a tree and tells him about how she got in an argument... Natsume envies her for being able to argue with people... he even correctly guesses what she was arguing about, and says "It's because you're stupid and innocent. You're way too easy to see through."
Mikan seems to be getting along much better with Natsume now.. also Hotaru and Luca happen to see them when they are sitting together talking. They start spying on the 2 of them... then when Mikan leaves, Natsume collapses.
Meanwhile, Mikan's friends in the special class go and try to convince Jinno again... they challenge him to a thing where if they can't make him laugh in 30 seconds, they'll give up and leave... the guy with the "make people laugh just by talking" alice manages to do it... Mikan goes back to her class, and finds out they got Jinno to let them do the event. They tell Mikan to go out and buy some supplies for them. She tries to go back to Natsume to tell him the good news, but she doesn't know that he'd collapsed and is now in a hospital bed...
