Strife and Settlement

In A Girl and Her Guard Dog Episode 5, the Kodan-gumi gang kidnaps Isaku. Keiya can be seen pursuing the vehicle that is taking her. After a fight and the car sliding into the water, Keiya soon finds her and manages to save her.

Keiya and Isaku’s teacher punishes them after they return. Following that, while the other kids are having fun enjoying fireworks and barbecue, they are asked to sit in a room together and write an apology. Isaku gets upset by this since she truly wanted to go experience an ordinary teenage life.

Upon returning from their outing, Keiya gets caught trying to take his books with him. Then, Isaku finds out that Keiya was intending to have someone else complete his schoolwork. She then scolds him and asks him to study with her.

Isaku makes a demand, which Keiya accepts, but he asks her to reward him at the end of it. Keiya is seen asking Isaku to wear her bathing suit. He has a little pool ready with barbecue when he leads her outside. He explains to Isaku that he arranged everything so Isaku could experience it because they weren’t able to enjoy it on the outing.

Following that, Isaku can be seen having fun in the pool while Keiya grills meat on the fire. The episode ends when Keiya joins her in the pool shortly after.
