Tsukimi feels like she's trying to sell dresses like the Little Match Girl tried to sell matches. Everyone dresses up for the final day of the exhibition but make no sales. Mayaya has a panic attack and Tsukimi goes running down the street to get her tea.
Kai and his assistant are there to drop off his card for her, but he sees her running and is amused at the "jellyfish swimming in the streets of Harajuku." Hwa-Young is shocked it's the same girl, a reaction she feels again when Kai later informs her that Kurako is really a guy. Tsukimi accepts Kai's card before the rain comes pouring down.
Back at the exhibition everyone is lamenting the lack of people attending. It's deja vu when Tsukimi thinks no one is there and Shuu shows up, drenched. He offers support and reassurance, and a reluctant Kuranosuke takes Tsukimi to a nearby booth to secretly find out her ring size for Shuu. Tsukimi wonders if the match has burnt out, and this happy life she caught a glimpse of is about to disappear with the last match.
