While in class, Hachiman thinks about the pros and cons of forming social groups by comparing the act to the animal kingdom and wishes he was a solitary bear while subsequently drawing one on his biology assignment. While being reprimanded by Shizuka, she asks Hachiman about the Service Club's progress and states that she simply wanted to separate both Hachiman and Yukino from everyone else because of their unorthodox views on society.

At lunch, Hachiman observes Yui's continually failed attempts to break away from her social group led by the popular Yumiko Miura in order to have lunch with Yukino. Yui, soon finds herself in a tight spot when she can't explain why she has to leave to Yumiko. Just then Yukino shows up and demands to know why Yui is late, but understands once Yumiko makes herself known. Yukino then proceeds to point out the flaws in Yumiko's personality, in that she imposes her beliefs on others as the unrequited leader of her social group. Afterwards, realizing the tense atmosphere, everyone but Yui and Yumiko exit the class, allowing them to resolve their differences. While outside the class, Yukino and Hachiman listen to Yui telling Yumiko her true feelings of the way she wants to be treated.

After school, the delusional Yoshiteru Zaimokuza shows up at the club with a request that they help him review a light novel he wrote, which they accept. That evening, while walking home, Hachiman has a flashback involving a dog and a car while crossing the street. The following day, without hesitation, Yukino harshly critiques Yoshiteru's work, making him feel put down, but also glad that he was able to get honest opinions from people for something he wrote and promises to have them review his next work.
