"Alley Cats summer vacation has finally started and Kyo has a few surprises to help Ako better understand the real world whilst helping connect her and Hideki's relationship. After enjoying Kyo's private beach and villa for a couple hours, Saito Sensei gets angered that the group isn't using the most of their "youth" and demands they all hangout together for the rest of the day. Night falls and Kyo sets up a special line of fireworks where Hideki then pronounces his love to Ako on the villa steps, but even with Ako accepting and pronouncing hers, she still sees their relationship as husband and wife. To no avail Kyo sees the vacation as a failure and thus sets up another at Hotel Flores a hotel that is collaborating with Legendary Age. The group then spends most the day going on "code quests" that give the player items when they purchase stuff from different areas in the hotel. Around mid day Hideki returns to his hotel room and starts up Legendary Age with Ako where she then invites Hideki (Rusian) to her room via the game. Ako suggest they swap couples chat. Hideki then randomly logs out and logs back in, but something doesn't seem right about the newly logged in Rusian."
