In the middle of another break from school, A-Ko dreams of finding the perfect boyfriend. Because of this, she and C-Ko get into an argument that leads to C-Ko running away and nearly getting hit by a motorcyclist named Kei. While working part-time at a fast-food restaurant to raise money for a party dress, A-Ko meets Kei and immediately falls in love with him. B-Ko happens to like him as well; however, both A-Ko and B-Ko are unaware that C-Ko is the apple of Kei's eyes.

This OVA introduces a new character named Kei, a motorcyclist who almost runs over C-Ko and is subsequently run over by A-Ko. Kei hardly speaks, and he doesn’t do that much, but A-Ko and later B-Ko fall for him immediately for no reason.
