The first contact between Sumi and Kazuya came through Chizuru.
Chizuru, who had consulted Sumi about her work many times, nominated Kazuya as a training ground to help her overcome her shyness, and Kazuya responded to her request.
Kazuya, who is of the same age as Chizuru and has only been told that she is a shy girl, is bewildered by Sumi’s inability to speak or even smile properly, and brands her as “unsuitable.
However, he has a crush on Chizuru and is determined to do her a favor.
He talks to her as gently as possible, and when he witnesses Sumi being picked up by a group of men while he is away for a while, he shows his manliness by forcing her out of the house, even though he is prepared to be talked about behind her back.
Impressed by Kazuya’s words and actions, Sumi gradually opens her heart to him.
Sumi is impressed by Kazuya’s words and actions and gradually opens up to him. Sumi is encouraged by Kazuya’s words, “There’s no reason why a kind girl can’t be a Renkano!
However, even with some improvement, she is still introverted and keeps her love hidden in her heart, in contrast to Ruka Sarashina, another Renkano who is open about her love for Kazuya.
Even so, she seems to want to express her feelings for Kazuya somehow, so she asks him when his birthday is, unintentionally says “I love you” on a practice date (although she was too quiet to be heard), and suddenly takes what seems to be a bold action.
She is not a dexterous girl, in fact, she is quite clumsy, but she is aware of this and tries hard to be, and her willingness to listen to Kazuya’s worries and cry with him has moved many readers.
