One day, Naru's father becomes curious after observing how Naru's character has changed lately.

The girls are tasked with coming up with a concept for their club, many of them were rejected by Yaya. But, Naru, upon hearing from her father about how flowery she has become lately, decides to base her concept around flowers. Having decided on Naru's theme, Hana asks Sally for permission to perform at a department store event. Sally agrees on the condition that the club both show the results of their yosakoi practice and score high enough in their exams. Apart from preparing the yosakoi routine, the girls do some revision and exercises at the library prior to their exams.

Despite studying hard, Hana alone falls short on her exam results, upsetting her greatly. Encouraged by the others not to give up, Hana continues to work hard on both yosakoi and improving her worse subjects. Sometime later, Yaya and her bandmates then participates in the first round audition. The same night while Sally is checking Hana's homework, she accidentally found Hana's Yosakoi notebook.
