It's Fumi's turn in the crappy manga business!

Roman struggles to create a heroine for her manga, and Hime and Bossun arrive where Fumi informs them that Roman is struggling on her storyboards. Roman explains that her one shot story, Margarine, is published in a Shoujo manga, and she has been working hard to publish her second manga. At the same time, she is helping her fellow club members. Bossun and Hime notes that Roman acts and looks different. She gives harsh criticism on one club member's art style. Then, Roman notices Bossun and Hime, and her original personality returns. Fumi finds Roman cute when Roman changes from original self to influential writer mode. One of the club members note that Fumi is one of the best drawers who is a bit embarrassed at her storyboards. Fumi asks Roman to check her storyboards, and Roman asks Fumi what does she want to draw. She asks Fumi if the reader is empathetic with the heroine. Roman tells Fumi to try again. In the Sket Dan clubroom, Fumi asks Bossun and Hime to check her finished story, and when she states that she has Roman's influence, Bossun and Hime think the manga will be wacky. The story's title is Strange Shoujo Legend... The Like Mad Custard Boy Cometh! As they read the story about Haruko, Bossun and Hime find the story doing strange and cliche things. Haruko bumps into a male student and falls in love with him. The male student calls her a gutter girl and runs off with Haruko's wallet. Despite how bizarre the story is, Fumi's story gets an award, and Roman finds Fumi, a scary girl.

Meanwhile, Switch has a new invention called Kamiya Mao who is from Ponytail Revolution. Himeko remarks that the doll's voice is similar to Mimori's voice. Then, Bossun does an impression of Sojiro. Hime volunteers to do Daisy's impression which Switch and Bossun find the voice matching a bit. When Tsubaki barges in, they find out that he forgot his contacts and that Sasuke thinks he heard Sojiro and Daisy's voices. As Sasuke attempts to leave, Bossun and Hime try to stop him. Bossun resorts to making impressions of Sojiro and leads Sasuke to the student council's room. Hime plays along and impersonates Daisy. The two giggle a bit when Sasuke gets fooled easily.

At the principal's office, Genzaburo begins to tell them his story. Back to Sasuke's location, Switch uses Kamiya Mao's voice to fill in Mimori's role. When Sasuke asks for Shinba, Bossun quickly makes impressions of him. Sasuke notes that Sojiro is not sitting in his chair, so Switch uses Kamiya Mao to act as the silhouette. Now, Sasuke asks for Sojiro's birthday which Bossun answers November 11th. Switch gives Bossun the right date with his hand signs. Bossun messes up, and Switch gives out the information via Mimori's voice. Then, Hime makes a mistake and talks through Daisy's voice with a Kansai accent. Sasuke notices something strange with Hime's silhouette, and Bossun tosses Hime, glasses and a wig. It turns out that Genzaburo is going to talk about his grandson again. Sasuke begins asking questions, and then, Hosuke signals to the Sket Dan that the Student Council is near by. Sasuke sees Switch doing an impression of Mimori, and when Sasuke gets suspicious, Hime knocks him out. Before the Sket Dan leaves, Switch quickly finishes the minutes.
