After getting over Igarashi, Misae starts hanging out with Shima more and starts falling in love with him. One day, Shima realizes after going to his house with two of Misae's friends that he is in fact not Shima Katsuki, but a cat who was sent by the real Shima Katsuki, who was dying, to grant Misae's wish. At the autumn festival, Misae confesses she has come to love Shima, but that night he disappears shortly after Misae made her wish for him to always be with her. After Tomoya wakes up, and realizes the cat showed him all this, Tomoya later tells Misae some things Shima did not get a chance to tell her.
