Summary: In a small town in Tokyo, the PTA argues about teaching sex ed in elementary school, but what nobody knows is that eleven-year-old Haruna is already pregnant. When she decides not to tell any adults, it's up to her classmates to help her through this ordeal. (Note: This is not loli. Sex happens off-screen and the artwork is not fan-servicey.)

Chapter Summary: After Hiroyuki, Mika, and Daigo listen to the baby's heartbeat, the reality of the situation sets in. Haruna decides she wants to keep the baby, and the four of them agree that it will be their secret, but will Mika end up telling Yagi-sensei after all?

They all might realise that is really a baby growing inside Haruna but somehow they don't seem to realise it has to come out some day.
And how tragic the dead of the parrot might be, I hope it is a lesson for Mika and she'll change a bit in behaviour.

I think Mika does realize, if no one else does. (I think she has a better grasp of what's going on even more than Haruna.)

Indeed Mika does realize the impact of mabor and birth and they all know tge baby will be born one day but what i mean is that they don t realize the whole process is overwhelming and the reality about the pain and the time it takes before the baby is born. Mika knows more as she read more about it. But i doubt her intentions to tell Yagi-Sen are noble.Is it not more in the way of "Haruna is pregnant" in a nagging way,just to denounce an exciting unexpected news

I think the old Mika definitely would have told just to tattle, but that's not the impression I got from this chapter at all. She knew there was no way Haruna could handle having a baby by herself and wanted help from an adult, but after seeing how unreliable Yagi-sen was, she didn't feel she could trust her.

Indeed Mika knows Yagi is unreliable she has realized it in this chapter but somehow I don t feel comfortable with Mika. It feels like inside her in a certain way the old Mika is still there.
