When Ichiko opens a treasure box that turns her back into a child, she is powerless against Momiji, and runs away. She meets up with Mika Tsuwabuki, and talks her way into hiding out with Mika's family until she can find a way to return herself to normal.
Little Ichiko and her wittle pets
Momiji makes a deal with Mizunoe who gives her a mysterious object, and she gives a dumbbell to him as a gift. The turtle man declines and exits. As Momiji laughs manically, Sakura sees the whole scene and looks puzzled. Over at Sakura's home, she finds a package addressed to Momiji, and she decides to open to thwart Momiji's plans. Suddenly, she gets enveloped by smoke, and Momiji jumps out of the closet with a gas mask on. She gloats about how Ichiko is going to be all old and saggy. To her surprise, Sakura shrinks back to her toddler age instead. Sakura finds her shinai and her spirits all shrunk, and Momiji ties up little Sakura. Momiji asks her who is the flat one now, and when Sakura says they're both the same, Kumagai takes a closer look. He says it's a tie, and Momiji hits Sakura and yells in rage. While Momiji asks her teddy bear if they have money to buy a torture device, Momiji escapes with the help of her dragon.
Momou finds Ichiko's abuse so satisfying
In the park, Mika finds Sakura, and she asked Sakura to play with her. Sakura quickly calls herself, Michiko, and she quickly hides from Momiji who is searching for her. As the day is over, Sakura asks Mika to visit her house since Sakura cannot go back to her own house. Along the way, Sakura sees Bobby and Momou pestering Akane and her friends. When Akane tries to kick Bobby, Bobby uses Momou (puppy) as a shield. Akane apologizes to the puppy only to find out that the puppy transformed back to Momou's human self. Akane and the others run away, Sakura asks Bobby and Momou to help her. However, Bobby and Momou ignore her because they are not into little girls. Sakura beats them with a wrestling move, and Momou confesses that he already knew and wanted Momou to give him pain. Momou explains to Sakura that she needs to open the right box. Sakura begs the two to find the box and that she will give them anything they want. Bobby and Momou freak out at the thought, and Sakura explains that she will would give them food or money. Before the two run off, Momou give a doggy whistle to Sakura.
Over at Mika's house, Mika introduces her family to Sakura. Sakura sees Sorata who looks at Sakura with such intensity. Though, Sorata just smiles at Sakura. Keita arrives home, and Sakura asks Keita to let her stay with them. She explains that she does not have a mom or a dad. Then, Keita tries to call the police. Sakura changes her answer about how her dad beats her mom and herself, and Keita decides to teach the father of hers a lesson. Sakura tells Keita that she cannot tell the truth and that she will pay them back. Taking her words seriously, Keita daydreams about Sakura's parents giving them money.
As dinner time rolls in, Rika yells at her siblings to stop fighting over the food. When Ryuuta mentions Tittyko, Rika reveals her grudge against Sakura who look down on her family. Before Keita leaves, he informs his brothers and sisters that he has a day off tomorrow. In a montage, Sakura feels strange as she experience having a family for the first time. Meanwhile, Bobby and Momou search for the box in downtown. By the river, Momiji calls Mizunoe to get the boxes, and when Mizunoe refuses, Momiji threatens to make him into a turtle soup. Next day, Keita sees a wet bed sheet where Rika tells him that Michiko did it. Sakura breaks into tears, and she gets angry at Momiji. Speaking of Momiji, she finds Sakura.
On the bus towards Glistening Plateau, Keita finds everyone enjoying themselves except for Michiko. On top of the bus, Momiji plays cards. In the plateau, Michiko gets hit by a frisbee, and Keita rushes to assist her. He hands her his handkerchief. When Keita pats Michiko on the head and comments that she is a tough girl, Sakura pushes Keita away and runs off.
In the woods, she wonders why Keita treats her like a child. As Sakura sees the squirrels, Kumagai reveals himself in his squirrel outfit. Suddenly, Momiji grabs Sakura by the leg.
