Mikoto Mikoshiba is invited by some boys in his class to a mixer. Since he lacks conversational skills with girls, he practices with Umetarou Nozaki. Nozaki tries to act out the girl’s part, but he doesn’t succeed. Luckily, Chiyo Sakura arrives, and Nozaki states that this is for the best—nothing can take the place of a real girl. However, the answers they give and the situations that are played out are not the ones that can be used at traditional mixers. Mikorin concludes that both of them can never go to any mixer ever. In the end, he declines participating, and Yuu Kashima goes in his place. The other boys are happy they will have one less rival to worry about. Unfortunately for them, the girls all fawn over Kashima, and the boys are left speechless.
