At the beach, Shuute with his lackeys are on a boat little ways far out on sea watching Haruka and Yuuto having fun together making Shuute annoyed claiming that Haruka is his. Before getting ready for the party, Shuute confronts Yuuto and belittles him by showing his multimillionaire gifts believing that his gifts will make Haruka happier than Yuuto's gift which causes Yuuto to be concern about both his gift for Haruka and his lack of social status. Shuute tells Yuuto that he should depart quietly believing that Yuuto was foolish to come laughing aloud. During the party, Shuute bullies Yuuto for not taking his warnings seriously and sees the Clumsy Aki-chan newest pose doll that Yuuto got for Haruka finding it cheap and tasteless telling Yuuto that it doesn't suit her at all. Shuute repeats himself to Yuuto saying that a commoner like him shouldn't be in the castle telling him to just leave to which Yuuto almost does. As Shuute was about to present his gifts to Haruka, he is interrupted by Yuuto (who is before Shuute in order list to presenting the gifts). Shuute tries to get Yuuto to leave once more but is ignored as Yuuto presents his gift to Haruka. Shuute is shocked to see how Yuuto's gift makes Haruka the happiest, especially considering how little it costs compared to his lavish gifts. Seeing how Yuuto is being welcomed by Haruka's parents, Shuute becomes jealous and demands to know why the Nogizaka elders are treating Yuuto with kind respect. When Shuute's father appears to him, he lies by saying that Yuuto insulted him and came between him and Haruka but was stopped by an older man. Shuute manhandles the old man and reprimands him for his disrespect. However, Shuute pays for his insolence when the old man is revealed to be Haruka's retired grandfather, Oki Nogizaka as well known as the most powerful person present and his own father punches him and forces him to publicly apologize to both Haruka's grandfather and Yuuto in front of the distinguished crowd before taking their leave.
