With most of the students on leave at Golden Week, Hachiken, Aki and their classmate Ichiro Komaba watch a Ban'ei horse race together, and despite the horse bred at Aki's farm do not win, she gets some relief learning that he gets well placed enough to have a chance of not being killed for livestock. After returning to the school, he pities a piglet that is the weakest and smallest among its siblings and decides to take care of it, just to later know that it will be sent to the slaughterhouse in three months.
