|On the 29th of May, Sakuta Azusagawa wakes up from a hazy dream and finds a journal which describes how, on the 6th of May, he met a senior from school wearing a bunny girl costume in the public library. Her name, however, has been erased from the journal. Mai Sakurajima, a teen celebrity, had gone to the Fujisawa Library that day to test if people there could still see her. While on hiatus, she enters school but it was midway through after the students have already formed their social circles. To maintain the status quo, no one has befriended her and her existence remains largely ignored. However, she has lately realized through experiments that aside from school, there were other areas where people have also become unable to acknowledge her existence. Those areas continue to grow and is becoming inconvenient. Believing that she has the Adolescence Syndrome, an urban legend about special powers that affected his sister in the past, Sakuta tries to help figure out what was happening to prevent her from disappearing completely.|

|Rio Futaba explains her understanding of "Adolescence Syndrome" using quantum mechanics and Schrödinger's cat. Sakuta continues discussing with Mai about her situation. Sakuta reveals he gets to know about Mai's conflict with her manager (also her mother) from Nanjo, with the cost of offering the photo of his scars. Mai then contacts Fumika, requesting the latter not to publicize Sakuta's photo, with the cost of offering her exclusive interview about her decision to return to entertainment – not through her mother. Mai then makes an appointment with Sakuta to go out with her, but denying it is a date. Before it begins, Sakuta gets involved in a misunderstanding with a girl over a lost child in which the two kick each other's buttocks, delaying his arrival. When they go out together, Mai also makes an appointment to meet with her mother, to inform the latter about her decision. However, even her mother cannot see her, even does not remember her. Sakuta then decides to bring Mai to travel farther to find out whether there are anyone else who can see her and remember her, but in vain. At night, they have to rest in the same room in the hotel. When Mai is taking a bath, Sakuta contacts Yuma and Rio, and finds they still remembered Mai. Then Sakuta and Mai sleep on the same bed, and discusses whether Sakuta would forget her, too. Mai proposes to kiss with Sakuta, shown in the beginning of episode 1, but Sakuta chooses not to.|

Rio proposes the school's atmosphere and sleeping caused the students to no longer remember her; like Schrödinger's cat, her existence cannot be confirmed by those who refuse to acknowledge her. As such, Sakuta attempts to stay awake as midterm exams approach. While studying with Mai, she induces him into sleeping with pills and bids him farewell. On exam day, Sakuta has forgotten about her until his memories return upon spotting a kanji they had studied together, prompting him to run outside his classroom. In front of the school, he confesses his love to her. Now recognizable to her classmates again, Mai announces the truth about Sakuta's syndrome.|

To break out of the loop, she suggests he try to find whoever is not behaving the same as the day repeats, leading him to Tomoe. While hiding in a desk, Tomoe explains her best friend had a crush on Maezawa, hence her reluctance.

Tomoe later proposes she and Sakuta enter a fake relationship until the start of summer break. Sakuta agrees after seeing Tomoe's distress at the thought of her losing her friends and comparing this to how his sister, Kaede felt when a similar occurrence happened to her.

Following a conversation with Rio, he realizes Tomoe had been lying about her feelings. Instead of the beach, Sakuta takes her to Enoshima and confronts her, where she admits she has fallen in love with him but he turns her down telling her that he doesn't feel anything for her since he is in love with Mai. The following day, it is June 27 as the events of episode 4 repeat, though with Mai kissing Sakuta on the cheek. While going home, the two encounter a middle-schooler named Shoko Makinohara shielding an abandoned cat from the rain, a doppelgänger with the same name as another girl whom Sakuta had fallen in love with when he was younger.

As the two try to adjust to their new lives, Sakuta learns the siblings harbor a grudge toward each other because of expectations levied on them by their respective parents, with Nodoka especially resentful of having to live in her older sister's shadow.

At the beach, Nodoka attempts to run out to sea before Sakuta stops and tells her that Mai indeed loves her. When she demands an explanation, Sakuta gives her the tin, revealing letters she wrote to Mai when they were younger; Mai explains she read and kept them to motivate her through the stress of her work. She adds Nodoka's mother has worried for her happiness as she tries to live up to expectations, urging her to pursue her own goals. As they embrace, the two revert to their original selves.

When reading a note in a book she had loaned to Kotomi, Kaede collapses as her past recollections slowly start to return, though at the risk of forgetting her current life. The Azusagawa siblings try to go to Kaede's school, but the trauma returns when Kaede spots other students. Instead, the two visit a zoo to cheer her up before returning to the now-empty school at night. With no one around, Kaede is comforted by the trip and proclaims she is ready to attend school again.

An older Shoko, whom he had met when he was younger, treats his injuries. As he is bathing, she reads entries from Kaede's diary that she began writing shortly after her initial memory loss; expecting to regain her old memories and Sakuta to respond negatively, Kaede created her list of goals to provide him with happy recollections once she reverted to her past self. The next day, Sakuta spots a note left by Shoko before finding out both versions of her have disappeared entirely; Rio suggests Shoko was an illusion created by Sakuta. Upon coming home, Mai reads the note and storms away, prompting Sakuta to follow her to her filming location.
