|S2 Episode 7 - As Long As There's Love, It Doesn't Matter If I Get More Sisters, Right?|
Kotaka is bombarded with phone messages from the 4 other club members, asking about what to get for Kobato's birthday. He then sets up a date with all 4 of them to go shopping... Rika and Sena are disappointed that they didn't get to go alone with Kotaka. On the way there, Kotaka criticizes Rika for wearing her school lab outfit to go shopping, and Yozora gets embarrassed when she realizes the outfit she picked out looks a lot more feminine than she thought. Both Rika and Yozora decide to split from the group and go shopping for clothes for themselves, and Kotaka gets Yukimura to go with them. So now it's just Kotaka and Sena shopping together for Kobato's present.
Sena starts talking to Kotaka about what he thinks about getting a girlfriend... Kotaka says that his priority for now is just to make friends, since he sees himself as too boring for a girlfriend. Sena obviously disagrees... They also bring up Yozora, and Sena says she isn't sure what her intentions are.
When the other group rejoined them, Rika is now wearing a really cute dress, Yukimura is now wearing what Yozora was wearing earlier, and Yozora is wearing a plain track suit. Yozora has really started to hate the crowded mall environment and wants to leave right away.
Kobato's birthday party turns out to be pretty boring. Kobato is scared of Sena now and acts timid the whole time... but she does like the present that Sena got her, which is a bunch of meat.
When they get home, Kotaka finds Kate and Maria waiting to invite themselves inside and stay over. Kate gets Maria to hand Kobato her present, which is a charm for warding off evil. Kobato is like "foolish child of god, that won't work on me." And then Kobato gets angry seeing that both Maria and Kate are now calling Kotaka "Onii-chan."
I don't know what purpose Kate serves here, she's a really uninteresting extra character... As she talks to Kotaka, we find out that she's apparently friends with Sena's dad as well, and she knows that Kotaka and Sena have a thing going on with each other.
