Amanchu (manga) - Chapter 05 - 01
Hikari Kohinata asks Futaba Ooki to walk home together, and she accepts. While they walk together, Futaba tells Hikari about how at lunch break earlier that day, she had felt incredibly anxious as she watched friendships form together at lunch and she was left uninvited... until Hikari appeared and asked to eat with her. She is very greatful to Hikari for this, and tells her so, because she'd felt so insecure about moving to somewhere new from Tokyo.

Amanchu (manga) - Chapter 05 - 02
She then apologises to Hikari for babbling, but Hikari explains that she likes listening to people talk because she herself has trouble expressing her own feelings and they come out mumbled, which is why she has the habit of tooting on her whistle when nervous. Hikari asks if Futaba feels insecure, and she says she does. Hikari quotes her grandmother, saying that "The person who thinks he is unlucky will always be unlucky". Futaba notices that they seem to have already passed by the bus stop but kept on walking, at which point Hikari spins her around and Futaba sees an enormous lane of beautiful cherry blossom trees in full bloom.

Amanchu (manga) - Chapter 05 - 03
Hikari asks Futaba if she feels lucky, and she agrees again. Hikari tells her that there's no problem then, because (quoting her grandmother again) "the person who thinks he is lucky will always be a truly lucky fellow." and that because Futaba has Hikari, she'll always be ok. Futaba realises that bring her there was all in an effort to make her happy and is extremely touched.
