Kyoya and Erika go to view the cherry blossoms over spring break. Nozomi Kamiya sees the two and wonders why a good looking guy like Kyoya would date a boring normal girl like Erika. Fast forward and the pair official meet Nozomi Kaimya at the new school year. During the orienteering event, Nozomi tries in vain to get Kyoya to become a playboy like himself. However at the last night of the orientation, Kyoya told Nozomi that "It doesn't matter how much trash you pick up. You've just got a pile of trash". He is referring to how Nozomi fills his time with 500 plus girls and isnt really serious about any one of them, unlike Kyoya. Kyoya tells Nozomi that there is hope for him still, because before he met Erika, he was just like Nozomi.
