"I, Haruka Hasebe, Don't Plan to Change" ( (わたし) () () () () () () () わらないつもり, Watashi, Hasebe Haruka wa Kawaranai Tsumori) is a short story from Toranoana's store privilege for volume 7 of You-Zitsu light novel series, together with other three short stories. It focuses on Haruka Hasebe's personal romantic background prior and during her stay at Advanced Nurturing High School.

Summary Edit

Haruka revealed in her short story that she has never experienced love before, but when it comes to unrequited infatuation, she did once with an upperclassman back in her middle school. Her interest is mainly rooted in the physical prowess and athletism of a guy - to which she would dub, the ideal guy. Amidst such circumstances, she never had the chance to make sure that what she felt would truly evolve into passionate and find genuine love. Days passed by and even after her crush graduated from their school, she never did anything to rectify her ambiguous feelings.

Unbeknownst to her, she would also meet a similar yet more engaging type of man than her former puppy love in her high school. Out of the male students in her class, surely, there are many possible options, Yōsuke Hirata—a full-spec D-Class leader who is supposed to be drafted into A-Class, Teruhiko Yukimura—a highly capable in academics and intelligent guy, or Akito Miyake—a physically fit person that is a member of Archery Club. However, none of them caught her interest but the mysterious guy, Kiyotaka Ayanokōji. This is due right after he showed off some of his capabilities in the relay contest of the sports festival against Manabu Horikita. Haruka displayed her interest with him by insisting to call him as "Ayanon" and in a first-name based nickname "Kiyopon" because they sounded cute. This is even before they got closer at their common study group, Ayanokōji Group. Even though its left unsaid, Haruka truly considers Kiyotaka as her "ideal guy" since he fit what she desired in a boy.

To ensure she would not make the same mistake and experience the same regret as she did back in middle school, she spent more time with Kiyotaka to test out her feelings — to make sure that she considers Kiyotaka as an ordinary guy and that her initial assessment is a fluke.

This denial, though stems from knowing that her friend, Airi, is intensely vying for Kiyotaka's affection. Being a considerate girl, she instead gave way and proceeded in supporting the former in her endeavor—putting her own feelings away—isolated in the midst and for the sake of friendship.
