"Love and envy make a man pine" is the eighth episode of the second season of the Sekai-Ichi Hatsukoi anime series. It revolves around the relationship between Shouta Kisa and Kou Yukina.


Kisa and his perfect boyfriend Yukina haven't been able to see much of each other due to Kisa's work and Yukina's school hours. Yukina always complies with Kisa when he says he is busy at work, never once being upset, which causes Kisa to believe that Yukina's lack of anger means he doesn't truly love him.

Kisa finally resolves to make time for Yukina no matter what after he hears about the marriage of a friend of his when a major project was given to him from Takano. Again, Yukina says it is fine when Kisa can't make it, but Kisa goes to his work and waits for him anyways after hurrying to finish his work.

There, he unexpectedly finds Yukina meeting with a girl and watches them as the two walk towards a specific part of town, which he only knows too well, in horror and heartbreak.
