#5: Wow, A Trip to Kyoto!: Exciting

As Naru and Keitaro attend the final entrance exams for Tokyo University at the Tokyo University campus, they momentarily enter the wrong campus. As they rush to the other campus, Keitaro drops his student ID, which university professor Noriyasu Seta notices and drives after them to return it. While attempting escape Seta's encroaching vehicle, Keitaro bumps into Mutsumi but runs off again before they could be introduced. After Seta finally manages to catch him and return his ID, Keitaro sits to begin his test.

Confident that he did well in the exam, Keitaro has a dream of passing the exam and Naru revealing that she was his Promise Girl, as he expected, however, when he a Naru visit the campus they discover that neither one passed the entrance exam.
While eating at a Izakaya Restaurant to unwind, Keitaro attempts to comfort Naru by reassuring her that they could take the test again next year and fulfill their promise to each other. However, Naru reveals that they had never made a promise together to enter the university and that his assumption of her being his Promise Girl was incorrect.

The next day, without anyone's knowledge, Keitaro and Naru both embark on separate vacations to Kyoto. While eventually encountering each other on the Shinkansen train, an accident that resulted in their glasses being broken meant that they did not recognize each other (due to their poor eyesight). Not realizing who the other was, the pair decided to vacation in Kyoto together, visiting the Kiyomizu Temple among other places before encountering each other again at their Kyoto Hotel. Discovering who the other was after their glasses were repaired, the duo were forced to share the same room after a booking mishap occurred in the hotel.
