When Kyousuke argues with Kirino and Kuroneko about Saori's room number, Saori stumbles upon her group of friends and blush. Long ago, Saori is a little girl who had a big sister named Kaori. Kaori takes Saori on her motorcycle. Arriving inside Kaori's collection house, Kaori pulls out a model 1947 Kalashnikov (AK-47) and frightens Shinya. She introduces Shinya to her shy, little sister. They meet up with Kanata. Kanata introduces herself to Saori and reveals her manga drawings. She explains that her pen names have different art styles. After experiencing anime with Kanata, Saori gets closer with Kanata. Kanata reveals her drawing that resembles Shinya as the Prince of Darkness. Shinya begs Kanata not to turn his middle school experience into a manga. The fun days are over when Kaori announces that she is getting married. As things progressed, the Pretty Garden members started leaving the group.

Saori pays a visit to Kaori and slaps her big sister for leaving the group. Kaori remarks how Saori was just her little sister. Saori storms off with tears. Alone in the collection house, Kanata joins Saori. Saori tackles and embraces Kanata. Kanata explains that she is leaving due to her debut. When Saori talks about starting a new circle, Kanata gives Saori her thick, swirly glasses. In the present, everyone marvels at Saori's collection. It turns out it's Saori's birthday today. Then, Kaori and her gang arrive to reunite with Saori. After Saori explains what she and her gang will do on their birthday, Kaori and her gang leave. Saori explains to Kanata that she has her gang of friends and that she still have Kanata's glasses. Kanata points to Kaori's birthday gift. Saori's gang starts to try on cosplay.
