Yamanobe pays a visit to the Sket Dan and informs them about the Genesis World Grand Prix. Yamanobe talks about the fact that 16 countries are participating and that four generals spread the idea. To add on, the tournament is held in the kingdom of N'preenu Ch'p'p's'b every four years. (N'preenese is their language) Switch explains that he has asked for an invitation to the tournament. Yamanobe reminds Bossun and Hime about their training. Bossun reluctantly accepts the invitation while Hime states she would go with them, and Switch is cleaning the morning star. Hime asks Bossun to decide, and he gives them the green light. The Sket Dan crew get excited that they do a stance. However, Yamanobe realizes that they are short one teammate since he has to be their manager. They enlist the help of Chiaki who agrees to go since she loves sport and food. Sket Dan and Yamanobe arrive to the tournament and are awed by the number of people. The Wong brothers (from China) greet Yamanobe and gives them yagult. Then, the champions from East Qupi'il begin insulting the Wong Brothers and Sket Dan.

During the game, Chiaki gets hit, and she gets more confused at the game when her team tells to do things.

The gang beat team Wyoming. With the final round beginning, Chiaki becomes the leader of the team by changing the plans. The rest of the team follow her orders much to Bossun's disappointment. The game is over with team Sket Dance winning the tournament. The prince tries to get Chiaki to married him due to the brooch, but Chiaki refuses after she eats all of her banquet.
