The light novel’s author Shogo Kinugasa is writing scripts for preview trailers, and this week’s trailer features students from Class-B: “Say, say, Kanzaki-kun,” Honami Ichinose begins this week’s preview trailer by attracting attention from Ryuji Kanzaki. “What’s up, Ichinose?” he replies. She continues to ask whether he likes sports festivals and receives a negative reply that he personally doesn’t like them. The male student adds that he hasn’t been very good at teamwork since his childhood. “You seem to be bad at having fun in a group,” the class’s leader nods. Kanzaki also reveals that he spent time studying when others had time playing, which makes him wonder if he would have a different personality if he chose the path. “But I think you’re all right the way you are,” Ichinose points out with a positive comment. “You’re always kind to everybody,” he praises her nature, which leads to a moment of realization she may be in love with him. Ichinose, however instantly and casually denies that: “Nah, not at all. Let’s keep being nice friends forever.” “Yeah, I’m fully aware… that I shouldn’t do what I’m not good at,” Kanzaki reflects on himself. She calls this episode’s title and concludes the trailer by a greeting to viewers: “See you next week!” You can check 1-minute and 9-second long video below:
