Ayuko Uehara spends her last day of summer by going around town for a bit. She soon encounters two girls at a taiyaki bar, Saki Iwasawa and Kanaka Amaya. Kanaka excitedly shows some dancing theatrics with her taiyaki to Saki, before she accidentally bumps into Ayuko, subsequently knocking her ice cream over. Kanaka apologizes by offering Saki's spicy taiyaki and they both run off. As Ayuko bites into Saki's taiyaki, she overhears that they are starting high school the following day and remarks that she is as well. That night Ayuko ponders that her school uniform is a bit to large for her but that she'll probably grow into it.
