Supernatural Studies Club's Restoration Arc
In the old school building's Girl's Archery Team's room, Karen is visited by Ryu Yamada and Toranosuke Miyamura, who both comment on how stubborn she looks. She is asked by Ryu if they can talk about the reconstruction, prompting her to invite them in. He questions her reasons for disagreeing to the reconstruction, with her informing them that she loves this room, as it witnessed the blood and sweat of the archers, much to their's surprise. She states that she has no intentions of giving support, however Ryu states that he will have to kiss her. She stops him from doing so, and utterly slams him on the ground. She then asks them to leave the room, bowing to them.
Again in the old school building, the two asks her to let Ryu kiss her, this time they do it politely, however she still slams Ryu onto the ground. Toranosuke proceeds to plan out yet another scenario, which involves a special mood, which she is confused by this. Toranosuke starts the music to set the tone, allowing Ryu to ask her to kiss him whilst handing her a pack of flowers. Nevertheless, she flips him over along with the flowers. Ryu becomes frustrated and demands a kiss from her. Yet again she flips him, albeit slightly exhausted, and asks him for his intentions behind his desire to kiss her. He attempts to say something, but instead asks her why she loves this room so much. Though She ignores the question. She watches as Ushio Igarashi enters the room.
Ushio asks Karen if she still intends to persist in her views. She reveals that Ushio has been asking her quite a while, to which Toranosuke had no idea about. She refuses to assent to the reconstruction, leading him to leave the room leisurely. She watches him close the door however, he locks it from the outside to prevent her from attending the meeting. She panics, asking them how can they leave and if they are completed trapped. As Toranosuke explains that it satisfies the president's request, she bangs the door ordering Ushio to open the door, with no luck. She desperately calls for help, to no avail. She claims that she has to attend the meeting. She agrees to kiss Ryu, much to his surprise, if that is what it takes to get her out. As she attempts to kiss him, he refuses to kiss her, since he is on her side now. He decides to help her, due to the fact that he hates Ushio and is not exactly fond of the President.
She watches as Ryu and Toranosuke converse about their club's status after they break her out. She then questions how Ryu plans to get them out, with him informing her that he will solely make a hole in a wall, much to her shock. As Ryu gets ready to throw a wooden shelf into the wall, She stops him, and reminds him that they cannot destroy the wall as she loves the room.
Karen and Ryu argue on what wall to destroy, as he continues to ask, she reveals that the wall she was protecting so dearly has several Japanese characters engraved in it. The engraving state "Shingi Ikyuu," to which Toranosuke gives a false explanation, misunderstanding the true meaning behind it, much to her annoyance. The characters are supposed to read "Shingi Ittai," which means mind and skill as one. The tradition in the Girl's Archery Club is that whenever their team wins a tournament, they add a stroke in the phrase. Karen explains that she wanted it to be complete, revealing that there is but one stroke left to add. Toranosuke tells her that the wall must come down, since it is stopping her from going to the meeting. Ryu asks her if she is going to watch as someone else destroys it, or if she will destroy it herself. Ryu then adds in the final stroke, and tells Karen to win the next match, causing her to give a tear of joy. She agrees to bring the wall down and goes to the meeting.
Later at the meeting she voted in favor, permitting the reconstruction of the old school building. After school from behind Ryu, Karen, in her school uniform, comes up and thanks him for his help. Toranosuke and Ryu comment on how different she looks in her school uniform. She tells them that she was thinking of a way to thank Ryu, she asks if a kiss would be enough for him as he asked insistently earlier. She fidgets a little before he answers. After he refuses, she unfortunately flips him once again.

After doing so she is confused by his expression.
