About Girlfriend, Girlfriend Season 2
Shino Kiryuu discovers that Naoya isn’t just dating Saki but is also involved with his classmate Nagisa, and is even being courted by Rika Hoshizaki, a girl from a different class.
Shino had always found Naoya somewhat peculiar but had believed him to be an honest person. The revelation that Naoya had developed feelings for someone other than Saki was hard for her to accept, especially because she couldn’t abandon her own feelings.
She had been holding back due to Saki, her best friend, being in a relationship with Naoya. Saki requested Shino’s assistance in helping Nagisa prepare for her upcoming exams as the summer break was approaching, and they had plans to attend festivals and watch fireworks on the beach.
They all wanted to participate in various events together before the break. While Naoya had intended to spend all his savings during the summer break, they still had to get through their exams before the break began.
However, the challenge was that failing three end-term exams would require them to attend remedial classes every day, potentially canceling their summer break.
While Saki was confident enough not to fail three exams, Nagisa was struggling and failing all her exams. Neglecting her studies, Nagisa was preoccupied with cooking and enjoying her time with Naoya.
Naoya and Saki were unable to assist Nagisa with her studies, prompting them to seek Shino’s help in preparing Nagisa for her exams, ensuring they could all enjoy their summer break together.
