After an awkward start, Aharen and Raido are spending a lot of time together and are getting closer. However, someone is watching Raido and she doesn't seem pleased.

The official website has released the spoiler stills and synopsis of "Aharen-san wa Hakarenai" Episode 2. Raido and Aharen are eating lunch and even heading back home together. Raido is slightly concerned about Aharen's lack of personal space.

Meanwhile, he notices someone is watching them but he doesn't seem to care. However, a girl appears in front of them and tells Raido that he should stop deceiving Aharen.

In the pilot episode, titled "Isn't This Too Close?," it was Raido's first day of high school and he was ready to do his best.

He vowed to change in high school. Raido recalled how he used to scare his classmates in middle school with his sullen face. But now, he was ready to change his ways and smile a bit for his classmates.

His strategy was to become friends with the girl sitting next to him named Aharen, but despite his repeated attempts to strike up a conversation, Aharen completely ignored him.

The next day, Raido could feel the distance between him and Aharen. He noted she was pretty small physically too and was starting to lose his sense of depth perception.

However, things changed completely when Raido picked up Aharen's eraser.

"Follow the 'indecipherable' daily lives of two students who form a particular and peculiar friendship," read the official series synopsis, according to Crunchyroll.
