After Kasanoda walks in on Haruhi changing, he ends up falling in love with her. He later joins the host club, but as a customer. When he insists on Haruhi as his host, the other hosts get nervous and the clients get excited. Kasanoda tries his best to tell Haruhi how he feels about her, but cannot because of his shyness, and because he would be seen as gay, since everyone else believes that Haruhi is a boy. Tamaki starts to realize his feelings for Haruhi, and just as Kasanoda plucks up the courage to tell Haruhi, she remains oblivious, and cuts him off and says that they would be great friends, causing everyone to believe that she rejected him. This depresses Kasanoda, but causes the rest of the host club, hosts and clients alike, to be moved so much that they all want to become friends with Kasanoda. Meanwhile, Tamaki still is unsure just how he feels about Haruhi, and Haruhi herself is completely oblivious to everything.
