Ichiko Sakura has led a charmed life--so much so that it affects the lives of those around her. Momiji, a poverty god, is dispatched from the heavens to relieve Ichiko of her abundant good fortune, and help balance the scales of happiness in the world.
"It's time for your lethal in-death-tion!"
In an unknown world, Yamabuki assigns a task to Momiji. Her person of interest is Sakura Ichiko. Momiji finds it odd that this girl has such large breasts, and she crushes the photo before taking off. On the first day of school, Sakura arrives, and every male student welcomes her. When some of the jealous girls talk smack about Sakura in the bathroom, Sakura hears them in one of the stalls. Instead of feeling hurt, Sakura enjoys listening to how jealous the girls are. Suddenly, she sees a woman (Momiji Binboda) hanging in front of the stall. Sakura runs out of the bathroom to call for help, but the guys did not find the dead woman. At home, Sakura takes a bath, and Momiji pops out of the bathtub. Sakura screams in fear, and when Suwano arrives to help, Sakura throws Momiji at her butler. Momiji explains to Sakura that she is the god of poverty who is here to suck out Sakura's fortune which restores the balance. Then, Sakura insults Momiji's flat chest, and the two get into a fight. Momiji quickly changes into her nurse outfit and brings out her giant needle. Momiji's teddy bear, Kumagai, captures Sakura, and Momiji prepares to stab Sakura. Somehow, Sakura narrowly dodges Momiji's needle, and she knocks out Momiji with the broken needle. She instructs Suwano to dump Momiji and her teddy bear. Suwano comments about Sakura's friends which Sakura states that she is not friends with them.
In a limo ride, Suwano shares Sakura's backstory to Momiji, and he tells her that Sakura is a lonely girl whose parents were gone during her childhood. He asks Momiji to be good friends to Sakura because Sakura loves company.
Next day, Sakura comes to school, and everyone throws her a big birthday celebration. Then, Kumagai arrives with a note about Suwano who has collapses. Arriving home, Sakura finds the birthday cake that Suwano had baked for her. Momiji appears and explains to Sakura that she sucks up everyone's fortune around her. When Sakura agrees to have her fortune sucked out, she grabs Momiji from behind and delivers a suplex blow. Sakura quickly grabs the fortune container and hurries to the hospital. However, Momiji confronts her, and Sakura smashes the container. The fortune spills and reaches Suwano. By Suwano's side, Sakura cries and tells Suwano that he may leave her. She tells Suwano to marry someone. Within a week, Sakura receives a postcard from Suwano who just got married.
