Takagi, however, tries to stick to dream and found out that Azuki also wants to be a voice actress and already got a good reply from a production company. Takagi, then, brought Mashiro to her house and telling her his dream.... Mashiro then tells her that he will write a manga with Takagi and if their manga gets turned into an anime, she'll voice the female lead and marry him. Azuki agrees, but the condition that she has is that they cannot meet until then.
