Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie Episode 6 Recap
Izumi is lying on the sofa while calling Shikimori. They talk about random things from their previous outing, including Izumi’s sunburn.
The weather was still too hot for Izumi’s body to resist. Regardless, Izumi invites Shikimori to the Suzumi Fireworks festival. Although she is worried, Shikimori agrees to Izumi’s invitation.
The date of the fireworks festival arrives, and the pair begin their preparations.
While Shikimori is having trouble with her yukata, Izumi tries his father’s wear-me-downs. Izumi’s father also shared an ultimate secret with Izumi to have a much better festival experience.
Izumi double-checks everything he packed for the date at the venue. He has three wallets, towels, waterproof cellphone holders, and other items because he believes something bad will happen. After all, Izumi is prone to misplacing wallets, getting wet, and collapsing due to his innate misfortune.
Shikimori arrives in style, his pink locks tied back in a braid. Thanks to Shikimori's brother's fix, she also wears a proper yukata. Despite their shyness during the conversation, the couple complemented one another.
Izumi and Shikimori begin their journey through the festival, which was bright and shiny with all the decorations. There were also food stalls and game booths, which are common at Japanese festivals.
The two end up in front of a firing booth. While Izumi wishes to impress Shikimori with his precise shooting, he is unable to do so. Shikimori, in turn, adopts her cool-girl persona and attempts to fire herself.
She nailed every target, earning her the wolf stuffed toy while Izumi and the shop owner gasped in disbelief.
Later on, they run into Inuzuka, Neko, and Hachimitsu. They happen to come across a goldfish scooping booth, where Inuzuka shows off his competitive side.
Shikimori decides to avenge Izumi against Inuzuka after failing to scoop. However, due to her striking looks, Shikimori scares off the fish.
Hachimitsu stops Shikimori’s competitive flare prior to the start of the fireworks. While Shikimori and Izumi flee, Neko takes over. Everything was going well until Shikimori’s geta strap broke.
Izumi manages to fix the strap, but Shikimori’s feet were already full of blisters. Izumi reveals that his father told him about a super-secret spot to watch the fireworks.
Shikimori wants to go to the spot despite some resistance from Izumi. He believes that it will not be worth it since it will cause more pain to his girlfriend.
Izumi offers his back to Shikimori as a romantic gesture. Despite being hesitant, Shikimori accepts Izumi’s effort and rides on his back.
In the middle of this, the fireworks festival began. Izumi’s decision changes and they proceed to go to the secret spot despite climbing up the temple stairs.
Thankfully, the two of them arrived safely. Izumi and Shikimori bond while they watch the fireworks. They also opened up to one another as they found out more about themselves.
Izumi also confessed that he wanted to invite Shikimori to the fireworks festival even before they were in a relationship. Shikimori, on the other hand, answers that she was only waiting for Izumi’s invitation.
After the festival, Izumi carries Shikimori once again. This time, he slips on the first step. Thankfully, Izumi’s father is there to save the two of them from falling. He manages to catch Izumi and Shikimori and carries them on his back.
It turns out, that Izumi’s parents were right behind them as they watched the fireworks.
