Oto Edogawa informs Haruto Kaguragi about transferring to Momonozono Academy. Haruto snaps and tells her to "hurry up" then. In actuality, he is devastated that he will not be able to see her anymore. Oto runs into Hitoshi Konoe, who reveals that he was watching her and Haruto. He warns her "not to do anything that might be misconstrued." Oto asks her mother if she can transfer to Momonozono. To Oto's surprise, she firmly refuses. Meanwhile, Megumi Nishidome confesses her feelings to Haruto again. After thinking it over, Haruto decides that he does not want to give up just yet.
The next day, Oto receives a Momonozono uniform from Konoe. She immediately goes to return to him. Outside his apartment, she sees him speaking to the three guys who attacked her previously. Konoe pays them and tells them to "lay off" with the spray paint. After they leave, he spots Oto staring at him. He ignores the situation and asks her about her transfer. She tells him that she is not transferring and turns back to the subject on hand. Konoe becomes angry, saying "there [is] only one thing I care about--making [Tenma] victorious." He then warns her that "no one will believe [her]" since she has no proof.
Oto goes straight to Tenma Hase's house to tell him about Konoe. When Tenma arrives an hour later, he brings Konoe with him. Oto wastes no time accusing Konoe of being behind the Eitoku attacks. However, Tenma does not believe her and she leaves the house in tears. Haruto finds Oto, before she collapses due to stomach pain. Haruto takes her to a hospital and walks her home. Near her home, Tenma and Konoe see Oto and Haruto together. An argument occurs when Haruto realizes why Oto was upset. He questions why Tenma does believe Oto, stating "you gotta believe whatever the girl you like says."
Tired of the fight, Oto orders everyone to leave. Haruto stays and follows her to a nearby park. Tenma soon leaves the car, saying he "should [not] have left [Oto]". Oto turns around and Haruto suddenly hugs her from behind. At that moment, Tenma arrives and order Haruto to get his hands off her. Tenma walks Oto back to house. He voices his rage at Haruto, which worries Oto. The next day, she warns Haruto about Tenma being a martial arts champion. Tenma visits Haruto's house that night to challenge him to a tournament. Haruto accepts the challenge without hesitation.
On New Years', Haruto tags along with Oto and Tenma on their shrine visit. Tenma is irritated by Haruto's face and Oto apologizes. Haruto mocks Tenma, saying "I'm the main character of this story." They begin opening their fortunes. Tenma gets "great luck", while Oto has "good luck." Haruto gets "bad luck" and refuses to tell the others what he got. Oto smiles and asks him if he wants to trade. Haruto deems her smile to be "great luck."
