What happened in episode 3?

The episode starts with all the students of Akebi’s class preparing to run some laps on their track. The coach is writing down each of their run times. As Akebi starts her lap, we see her speeding through the track, but she’s not wearing any shoes. She has the quickest run time. The girl sure knows how to leave an impression. Everyone’s so impressed with her that in the next moment, there are three seniors in their class trying to recruit Akebi for their sports clubs. However, she is still not sure which club to join. The three leave as they hear that the teacher’s going to arrive soon.

Akebi-san is new to the school, but she’s always friendly with everyone. With a bubbly and easy-going personality, she wins over even the shyest of the girls. Kei Tanigawa, who is always prim and proper in school, is also unsure about what club to join. Because of her strict personality, she finds it hard to make friends. After school, she notices Akebi dancing to a new song in front of some classmates. She wishes to be easily able to make friends with everyone like Akebi. Tanigawa gets at least half of her wish as she exchanged phone numbers with Akebi. They keep texting all night, and Akebi keeps complimenting her for having pretty legs. They form a really wholesome friendship.

Akebi also gets close with Kouichi-san, who is in the literature club. The two visit every club in school to help Akebi decide which one she wants to join. It starts raining, so the two have to run inside their locker room to get a change of clothes. There, Akebi does a reading for Koichi-san to cheer her up. She was feeling a bit unsure about herself. By the end of the episode, we get to see Akebi finally deciding which club she wants to join. Akebi-san is joining the drama club!
