Megumi Kuryu questions the frivolity of love: its meaning, why people need it and more importantly, can a prefect such as herself experience it. Megumi's thirst for enlightenment leads her into encounters with friends as she tries to find her answer.
After running from the filming, Mao ends up meeting Eiji by coincidence and they talk. Kouichi is worried about Mao, and Yuumi is worried because she's sensed the feelings Mao and Kouichi have for each other.
The filming isn't going as smoothly as planned, with Yuumi as the lead female. A replacement is needed, but the only person suitable is Mao. Later, Kouichi takes Yuumi to the beach, and Mao goes to see Eiji perform in a live concert.
Tired of the bad atmosphere, Kouichi heads out to the bookstore, where he runs into Eiji. Elsewhere, Kazuki has soccer practice with Asuka. Later, Mao goes out on a date with Eiji while Kouichi stays home with a cold.
The group meets up to talk about the movie synopsis; Kouichi continues to think about the chance encounter with Mao and Eiji; and Akira suggests using the school's swim tournament to get a girl in a swimsuit for the movie.
Kouichi wakes up from a dream only to have a cute, strange girl enter his home. It is only when his friend Kazuki arrives that he is able to remember that the girl is his childhood friend, Mao, who moved to France two years ago.
Because it's never too early to plan Thursday night... two months from now.
