Kim, the cheer squad captain, is in jeopardy of getting kicked off the team unless she gets a passing grade on a math exam. But the only way she can pass is to get tutored by Sugimura. At first, the two meet in a very awkward manner. Kim asks Sugimura if he can just do the work for her and she can turn it in as her own. He refuses, despite her anger and mention of his ruining of her cheerleading uniform by accidentally spilling coffee on her, and finally agrees to help her redo it.
When she arrives at the house the teens are living in, Yuko is briefly stunned to see the cheerleader who tormented and belittled her so vehemently on her doorstep, and she, Seiji and Shizuku are confused as to why she is there. Exhasperatedly, Kim explains that Sugimura is helping her with her test, which causes the three other ones to storm out of the house, leaving Sugimura to deal with Kim alone, much to his terror.
As Sugimura settles down to try and help Kim, Yuko, Seiji, and decide to drive downtown to a promenade place, an area of shops, clubs and restaurants that other kids at school have talked about. Once Yuko manages to drag Seiji and Shizuku away from the subject of the dark spirits, they actually start ot have fun.
Back at the house, Kim at first repeats her expectation that Sugimura will just do the work for her, to which he again refuses. After a few half-hearted attempts to do it herself, Kim tries a variety of tricks and schemes to force Sugimura to do the work for her, even going so far as to perform a sensual dance routine to no avail.
Meanwhile, Yuko, Seiji, and Shizuku's fun at a dance club is interrupted by another dark spirit, one who has the ability to disable any electronic devices in a certain range. The three of them manage to escape the attack in Seiji's car.
Back at the house, Kim has given up hope; she pours her heart out to Sugimura, revealing that she believes she has to be a 'ditzy airhead' because of her beauty, and that her popularity, so important to her sense of self-worth, is based on her looks, not on her brains. As she starts to cry, Sugimura takes sympathy on her, and tells her that she can be whatever she wants to be; her brain is as large as any other human's, and she can have both smarts AND good looks. Kim seems to regain confidence, telling him no one has talked to her like that before. Now more determined, Kim manages to redo the test on her own, and actually succeed.
Kim suddenly finds herself very attracted to Sugimura, much to the latter's confusion and distress. But just as she moves in to kiss him, Yuko, Seiji, and Shizuku burst in....and are very confused as to just what was happening. The three of them pull Sugimura into the kitchen and explain what is happening. However, they start to tease him about what he and Kim were doing. Sugimura vehemently denies that Kim is his girlfriend, but looks uncertain.Managing to convince Kim to leave, she agrees on one condition; that Sugimura kisses her. Sugimura's attempt at a quick peck is rebuffed, and Kim proceeds to deliver a passionate kiss.
