When Raku has to buy pet food, Tsugumi accompanies him to see if he is really fit to be Chitoge's boyfriend. However, Tsugumi is bothered by her developing feelings for Raku, so she later seeks advice from her classmates. As a result, she was advised by Kosaki that she is in love though she denies it. After being reminded to Chitoge by Seishiro that she had a first love, Chitoge opens her closet and reads her old diary from ten years ago. When the entries cease, she discovers a key that resembles one that could open Raku's locket.
