In the last episode of pure they sing together.

  1. Nagisa is a Junior High Freshman, which is accepted to be around 12-13 years old. It is likely he started the Pure arc as a 12 year old, telling Hanon (14 at the time) that he was "only two years younger". It is impossible to know if Nagisa turned 13 during the series.
