While walking to school in the morning, Yuuko Aioi tries to entertain Mio Naganohara and Mai Minakami with barrages of puns. Unfortunately, both girls show no reaction to her efforts. The puns are:

  1. こんな天気のいい日は テンキーでも買っちゃおうっかなあ Man, on a day with such nice weather[2] I just feel like buying a TEN KEY[3].
  2. あまりの猛暑に だつもうしょう! Too much heat [4] can cause baldness[5]!
  3. Hey, hey, do you know what the guy attacked by centipedes said? ムカデムカッデくる! Centipedes[6] are coming towards[7] me.
  4. 地理の予習は バっちり! I'm completely[8] prepared for geography[9].
  5. 防空壕で 僕? GO! Should I go[10] to a bomb shelter[11]?
  6. が喜んだ!! やったに!! The valley[12] is happy! Hooray[13]!
  7. マスカラ 付けてマスカラ!! I've put on[14] maskara[15]!

The closure for manga differs from the anime. The manga shows Yuuko being absent, while Mio's head and Mai's elbow are visible. In the anime, all 3 don't attend class - they are shown on board of a train. The anime shows more camaraderie, yet caused a bit of confusion; where are they going during school hours?

A flashback: Nano narrates that she is a robot, created by Hakase she lives with, and has no special features. She bumps her toe, and notes that she can feel pain. Nano asks about her key; Hakase reveals that if she turns it to the right, Nano's big toe flies off. Nano begs for her key to be removed, but Hakase refuses on the grounds that it's cute. Hakase makes it up to her by telling her she can now go to school (albeit with the ulterior motive of being able to snack all she wants without being scolded), and gives her the name "Nano," as she'd had no name before.

Nano's flying hand inspires Sasahara to write a haiku. Misato then blasts Sasahara and yells at him for dropping trash (his handkerchief). Sasahara then wonders how she knew it was his, as their houses are in completely opposite directions. Weboshi and Fecchan are watching the whole thing and get more and more excited as it becomes obvious that Misato is tsundere for Sasahara. The handkerchief is destroyed by the end.

Yuuko's cool guy

Yuuko approaches Sakurai-sensei after class. Rather than asking for advice (she got 30/100 in English) she questions about the quality of Sakurai's drawing used to illustrate English words. She later volunteer to draw for sensei. She also asks Mio to join but Mio (initially) refuses.
Upon hearing Yuuko's remark: "Alright, then, I'll draw a really cool guy!". Mio can't resist to showcase her idea of cool guy.
Both take turn to draw, capped with Mio's yaoi drawing. This impresses Yuuko so much that she addresses Mio as sensei[16].
Sakurai sensei uses Mio's latest drawing for her quiz.

In the anime, there is a short session showing Sakurai-sensei marking answer for this drawing. Answers include: king, boy, etc. Only one (the latest sheet) revealed to be the correct answer.
