Naota's classmate, Eri Ninamori, is the perfect girl; she's emotionally calm, a rational thinker, and is very rich to boot. However, all is not well as she has problems of her own. Her father, the mayor of Mabase, is involved in both a sex scandal and a lawsuit with the Medical Mechanica Corporation. In addition, she has to convince Naota to take the title role he was chosen for in their class production of "Puss in Boots". She soon learns about Naota's "secret", his horns, which, this time, resemble cat ears. But, what levels will she stoop to get her way?
