When Kamiya-san hears what Shikimori-san wants from her, she readily agrees,” read the official synopsis of Episode 8, as per Crunchyroll.

“Later, when Kamiya-san returns to her classroom to help with her class's festival project, her elegant look draws a crowd of classmates and guests around her. As she drowns in all the noise, a certain someone suddenly comes to mind, and she breaks away from the classroom,” the synopsis continued.
