Aya is tending to the flowers by school when Yoko runs up to her. She brings up that Karen and Alice have gotten into a fight and the duo run back to find Karen and Alice nearby playing on the tennis court. Karen gently chastises Alice, but the moment Yoko realizes they are just parodying a manga, she reacts with shock as Shino and Honoka enjoy the display.
Alice wakes up one early morning, then tries to go back to sleep after realizing that because it's summer vacation. But in the proccess she happens to notice something odd and looks to find Karen staring at her. With alarm she sits up to ask her why she's there so early, and looks to see a watermelon next to her while Karen holds a stick. She reveals that she has been wanting to break it and brought it over to do it with her friends, but Alice tries to reason with her by saying she shouldn't do it in there. As the chaos goes on, Shino remains blissfully unaware and continues to sleep.
A while later, Aya finishes making a homework sheet for the summer. She is sure if they follow it they will be fine, even Yoko. However, she starts to think about their previous four years and how Yoko always waited until the final day of Summer to request assistance. Aya always complied but eventually grew tired of it as Yoko would grow progressively worse - even saying last year that she didn't see why they even had to do homework as highschoolers. By now Aya is a bit peeved, but she is too excited to see her plan work out and tries to determine how she can give it to her friend.
Meanwhile, at Yoko's, she reminds her twin siblings to make sure they head to the pool prepared. They confirm hearing her and she looks to find out that Aya is calling her. A very strange sounding Aya responds, but she hangs up before saying anything other than confirming she has the right address. While confused by this, Yoko gets up to help her brother find his swim cap, and her sister the bunny towel she likes to use.
On the floor, Aya mourns her failure of a call and frets that the Yoko will be disappointed with her. She imagines the two of them, with Yoko claiming this and Aya making an attempt to clarify what happened. Yoko takes off and she tries to chase after her, only to trip and land face-first. She decides to hurry up and send a text to Yoko - but she realizes how lewd it sounds and panics further. In a rush Aya runs out of her place to get to Yoko's, but she complains over the heat while theorizing that this would be her first time ever going to Yoko's place alone. Just as she turns the corner, she suddenly tries to leave, reasoning that it would be rude to show up without contacting Yoko first, or even bringing her a gift, and wonders if she is even home.
She stops upon getting a call on her phone and speaks to Yoko, who reveals she isn't home at the time. To Aya's surprise, Yoko is right behind her. She greets her and asks about the phone call from earlier, saying that she got worried over Aya. Instead of happiness, Aya responds angrily until she is able to calm down back at Yoko's place.
While Yoko gets them something to drink she explains that she was just on her way to visit Aya, so she's glad she hadn't missed her. Aya is surprised to hear this, then asks where Kota and Mitsuki went. Yoko informs her that they went to the pool back at the school, then sits down with Aya and the drinks. Aya grows flustered as she realizes they are now alone, but she recalls the chart and shows Yoko - who responds with frustration and alarm. She sits down to attempt to do some homework but struggles to focus on it, instead using the time to observe Aya. Aya tries to ignore it but finds herself asking Yoko instead, causing Yoko to cause that she doesn't own any girly outfits like Aya does. At first she is silent, then offers to switch clothing so that Yoko can try it on.
The girls put on each others outfits, and Yoko comments on how strange it feels. She asks for an opinion but Aya struggles, causing Yoko to believe that it probably looks weird. She takes it in good humor and describes how tight the chest section is, only to incidentally dark Aya's mood and cause her to unleash a tickle attack until Yoko gives in and gives Aya back her outfit. However, Aya refuses to let Yoko have her own back since she believes she should go and wash them now. Yoko tries to insist it is fine though, and tries to grab her clothing, only in her panties and bra as her Kota and Mitsuki show up to find her grabbing Aya. Instead of reacting with shock or surprise, they simply stare and ask if they should head back out for a while longer until they finish. Both girls try to deny that anything happened though, and soon the four sit down to have some popsicles together.
The twins got one popsicle each, and Kota hands his to a confused Aya. Mitsuki then breaks her popsicle in half, to share the other stick with her twin brother, and they explain that friends share popsicles like this. Aya makes an attempt to break hers down the center, to give the other stick to Yoko - but it breaks wrongly, with the tip of one stick to the other. Yoko insists on taking the smaller piece since Aya is the house guest, but as Aya feels a bit bad over it, Yoko makes them even by taking the bit that got stick on Aya's by biting on it. At first Aya is highly flustered, but she suddenly starts to yell as the twins happily observe.
A while later, Honoka has just finished some tennis practice. She and a fellow player discuss the upcoming event, and while Honoka knows she must continue to practice and train, she finds herself thinking about Karen and wonders what she might be up to.
Karen, as it turns out has been hanging out with Shino and Alice. Shino voices how often they have been seeing Karen since Summer Vacation began and Karen worries she may be causing problems, but she insists they don't mind. Karen promises to continue to behave then, and Alice compliments this; only for Karen to suddenly demand that they eat some Nagashi Somen. Shin offers to ask her mom if they can have some, but she isn't sure if they can do Nagashi-styled Somen. This disappoints Karen, since it looked like fun on the television. She is happy to be seeing them so often but she finds herself kind of bored.
Alice suggests they read a book and mentions how perfect it would be for the book report they got assigned to write. Karen attempts this, but seeing how difficult the book is, she puts it back down and decides to wait. They suggest a game of cards, but Karen is bored with it. She voices a desire to do something new and spicy, so Shino, thinking she understand points out that they can try some super-spicy somen for lunch. Karen asks if they can have some canned tangerines to go with it, while Alice reacts with shock. She tries to stop Shino as she gets up to let her mom know, and soon lunch rolls around.
Before the girls start eating, Shino brings up that she will be making a Summer Vacation Debut. At first Karen is confused, thinking that she may mean as an idol, until Alice explains that for Summer, a debut means to entirely change ones image. Karen is able to understand now, and mentions that some girls tend to grow out their hair for this. Alice pictures the image and becomes quite disturbed, until Shino brings up her salon visit. She wanted to keep it a secret, and before she can say more, Alice worriedly asks if she will be dying it blonde, and asks that she doesn't do this. As it turns out, Shino never bothered to think about this, causing Alice to panic and try to make her stop thinking it over.
The girls prepare to go when Isami hears them. She peaks into the room to ask about what they are doing, and after the girls reveal their plans of walking with Shino to her appointment, she asks them to pick up some ice cream. The girls agree, so she allows them to get some for themselves too.
The girls drop Shino off at her appointment and Alice decides that they should get their shopping trip done and make their way home now. Karen agrees; only to suddenly recall something and ask if they can make a quick stop.
The girls rush to school where the tennis match is being held, but just as Honoka tries to focus on her shot, she looks to see Karen just as the ball comes and beams her; effectively knocking her out for a moment. She recalls how she originaly met Karen a year ago, and describes what she likes about Karen just as she throws water on her. She is taken to the infirmary, and comes out a few minutes later with a large red bruise on her forehead. She apologizes for making the worry and they quickly begin to discuss her tennis playing. Honoka insists that she isn't any good at it though, but mentions how she can balance on a ball. While it is a good talent, it has nothing to do with tennis.
They discuss Shino's Summer Debut plans and the girls invite Honoka to attend with them. At first she worries she may disrupt, but the girls assure her it will be fine. So she agrees to come with them.
By now they have gotten their ice cream and are heading back to see Shino. As they discuss what she may have done with her hair, Honoka finds herself distracted by observing Alice and Karen's own hair. They are joined by Yoko and Aya and they discuss her being on the tennis team. Honoka asks Yoko to join the tennis team, since she isn't on any and she happens to be really good a sports, but while Yoko thinks it over, Aya accidentally voices her fear in seeing Yoko less than she already does. Honoka assures she wouldn't pressure Yoko into anything, then Yoko and Aya explain that they were just heading to the Library to borrow some books for that report they need to do. Karen tries to block out this, causing Aya to wonder if she needs to make a copy of that schedule for Shino and Karen as well. With that they leave the trio and resume going to the Library.
By now, Alice is feeling pretty warm and she notices that Karen was wiping her sweat away using money. She calls the gesture offensive and grabs it, only to learn it is fake. Considering her admiration for Karen, Honoka takes out a coin to see if this works.
The girls arrive back at Shino's place and Alice is quick to compliment Shino's new hairstyle - which consists of her bangs cut shorter. She is excited since Shino resembles the Kokeshi doll even further, but Karen is actually surprised since Shino didn't really do much. Honoka believes that it looks alright though, then apologizes for showing up without prior notice. Shino panics however, as she believes she isn't dressed for company and runs off to change clothing.
She returns, now wearing a maid uniform with a pair of cat ears and tail. Alice brings Isami the ice cream she picked up for her, but in an attempt to just melt it a little for her, Alice has accidentally melted it entirely; causing Isami a great depression.
The girls sit down together and discuss the parfaits at Honoka's work. Karen is envious over this, but Honoka claims she would rather do what they do and pictures Karen and Alice dressed in fancy princess costumes enjoying ice cream outside in a very fancy setting. She claims to be jealous of Shino too, since she gets to hang out with Karen and Alice a lot. Shino suddenly recalls something and gets up to show Honoka the pretty dress she has made recently. As they excitely chat, Shino shows more outfits that she made as Karen and Alice watch from the table. Karen suddenly gets an idea and she suggests that they have an Alice-themed fashion show. The girls are excited, but Alice hesitates, causing them to force her into it. They get Alice to try on a few outfits, style Karen's hair, and Honoka even tries on a cute maid uniform with rabbit ears before they find a cute dress for Karen.
Eventually evening rolls around and Karen leaves with Honoka. They say goodbye and on their way to Honoka's, she thinks about how much fun she had that day. Karen suddenly stops to bring up their beach trip. She invites Honoka, but as it turns out she had a practice match. Karen is excited but Honoka worries she may just hold back her team and asks for some advice. Karen attempts to hypnotise her, but then promises to pray to the sun for her. But she frets that it may rain, then panics worrying that her beach plans may get cancled if that was to occur. To cheer her up Honoka offers to hang out with her, should this happen. Karen agrees and soon they split up at a nearby corner. Honoka waits for a moment before eagerly running forward.
Come the day of the match, Honoka is complimented by a teammate. She asks if maybe something good happened and Honoka thanks the sun for allowing her to play so wonderfully.
On the beach, meanwhile, Karen stops, thinking she heard something. She waits a moment before the girls call for her to join them and she quickly catches up.
After the credits, Kota and Mitsuki preview the next episode. They explain that is a beach-centric episode, but she claims the broadcast will be altered; causing Yoko to scold them for lying so severly.
