Mikoto Mikoshiba drops by Umetarou Nozaki’s apartment unannounced and is surprised to see Mayu Nozaki waiting outside as well. Mikoshiba is shocked that he waited so long (an hour) considering it is so hot today. Mayu dramatically responds that when he thought about how long it took to get here, he decided that it would be pointless to return without meeting his brother, stunning Mikoshiba.
While Mikoshiba is pondering how to proceed, Mayu asks Yukari Miyako if they can wait in her apartment. She gladly allows them and then starts to treat them as they wait. After serving refreshments, she asks Mayu if he reads Nozaki’s manga. He responds that he has read them all, but his descriptions about them surprise Mikoshiba since they are very bland. Mikoshiba then turns to Miyako-san’s manga, but he is confused by the continuous appearance of tanuki. He then looks around Miyako-san’s apartment, noting that this is his first time in woman’s apartment. He comes across some unexpected discoveries as he views the books she has in comparison with Nozaki.
Mikoshiba then gallantly offers to pay Miyako-san back with his body—aka he is willing to do the flowers and affects for her manga. He jokes that he knows that his statement made her heart skip a beat for a second. Mayu, however, takes his statement literally and offers to model for Miyako-san. Mikoshiba immediately stops him and offers to teach him how to do the affects instead. However, Mayu is a difficult student, and Mikoshiba gives up.
After a while, Mikoshiba instructs Mayu not to do anything while he uses the bathroom. Nevertheless, when he returns, he is astounded to see Miyako-san drawing Mayu semi-nude. He decides that if Miyako-san doesn’t mind, then he won’t say anything. However, when Mikoshiba sees her enthusiastically praising Mayu over his own work, Mikoshiba feels that this is totally unfair.
Simultaneously, Chiyo Sakura and Umetarou Nozaki finally return from their art supplies’ shopping trip. Nozaki notices the text Mikorin sent him, and they both head to Miyako-san’s place. Sakura worriedly hopes “their shy Mikorin” is okay. As they take off their shoes, Nozaki notices another pair in the hallway. Unexpectedly, loud voices greet them—Mikorin is yelling at someone not to mess with him; he will strip as well. Just as he finishes his sentence, he sees Nozaki and Sakura standing in the doorway. Endless false accusations ensue.
