Episode 7 is adapted from chapters 1-5 of Volume 4.


Hachiman Hikigaya is trying to relax during summer break, but is eventually tricked by Komachi Hikigaya and Shizuka Hiratsuka to help out, along with Yukino Yukinoshita, Yui Yuigahama, Saika Totsuka, Hayato Hayama, Yumiko Miura, Kakeru Tobe and Hina Ebina, with an elementary school's summer camp at the Chiba Mura Park. When they finally arrive Shizuka explains to Hachiman that it will provide a good opportunity for him and Yukino to interact with people from other social cliques.

As the activities begin, Hachiman and Yukino immediately notice Rumi Tsurumi, an elementary school loner, being shunned by her classmates. Hachiman and Yukino observe Hayato's failed attempts to talk to Rumi, which prompt her to walk away towards Hachiman and Yukino. Rumi explains to them how her situation came about, and resolves to make friends in middle school. Yukino explains the flaws in her plan, as Rumi will probably end up in the same middle school as those bullying her now, and their behavior will likely be adopted by new students as well.

During dinner that night the Sobu High School group discuss Rumi's circumstances and try to come up with ways to help her. Later, Hachiman is unable to sleep and goes for a walk. He finds Yukino out stargazing. Yukino explains that she inadvertently made Yumiko cry after arguing with her. Yukino also tells Hachiman that she wants to help Rumi because she reminds her of Yui and that Hayato's inability to do anything for her may be bothering him. As Hachiman asks about Hayato, Yukino explains that she has known him since elementary school and that his father is an legal adviser to her family's company, finally saying that she's glad she was able to come to the park and leaves for bed.

Hachiman, now alone, looks at the stars.

Rumi is shown sitting alone by the riverbank.
