|Opening Theme and Curtains Up!|
| Fujino Toyama, or Tetty Goodgripp as a Magical Girl travels to Umemizaki Middle School, enrolled in a special class for Magical Girls as class representative. She greets various classmates as she passes by, before returning to her own social clique, including Wrappy Tip, Miss Lille, and the twins, Ark Arlie and Drill Dory. The group discusses the rumor of a “transfer student”, formerly a prisoner enrolling in their class. Tetty begins to wonder how the new prisoner would adjust to Group 2, another social clique of Umemizaki Middle School. She reflects on her short-tempered friend, Fuko Sayama or Mepis Pheles.
During their discussion, Halna Medhi Melen, principal of the school and distant relative of Shayns・Osk・Val・Mer, enrolls Kana into the class, along with Calcolo, a Mage transformed into a Magical Girl serving as a teacher. Halna speaks and addresses Kana aggressively, before giving her a “cover story” in order to hide Kana’s past of crimes. Calcolo, nervous and anxious, begins to tour Kana around the school.
|Stand! Bow! Sit!|
| Kumi-Kumi, Classical Lillian, Thunder General Adelheid, and Mepis Pheles discuss the new transfer student. Mepis angrily insults everyone in her group, including the future transfer student, as Kumi-Kumi worries for the nature of the student. Later, Kana, the transfer student, enters Class 2-F, introduced by Calcolo to the detransformed students. She briefly introduces herself to Kumi-Kumi.
After the class is dismissed, the students crowd around Kana, interested in her new appearance and her magic. Princess Lightning tries to pressure Kana into using her magic, who refuses, following Yoshioka’s advice. Mepis then steps up, openly humiliating her, despite Tetty’s attempts to restrain her. Mepis begins to beat down Kana upon transforming, who fights back by teasing her, only further angering Mepis.
Meanwhile, Blade Brenda, Cannon Catherine, and Princess Deluge are instructed by Snow White to clean the graffiti of a city. Deluge and Snow White discuss Pythie Frederica’s attempt to transfer a prisoner to a school, as well as Ark Arlie’s well-being. Ultimately, however, their goal is to find both Ripple and Frederica, both of whom have gone into hiding.
Calcolo begins to teach her history class, explaining the crimes of Cranberry, Lake of Fire Flame Flamey, Melville, and Calamity Mary. After the class writes their opinions on the incident, Calcolo continues to worry about Kana and her peculiar behavior.
|Run Transfer Student, Run|
| Group 2 begins to discuss the new transfer student, Kana. Kumi-Kumi attempts to reason with Mepis for her unreasonable anger towards Kana, but the latter is quick to shut down her argument. After taking a restroom break, Kumi-Kumi is cornered by Kana, who asks about the school guidelines and the division of groups.
Kana, curious to know about the division of groups, corners Calcolo as well, notably invading her personal space under the belief that she was making a good impression. Calcolo redirects her to the principal, Halna Medhi Melen. Although the two share a rough conversation, Kana eventually pressures Halna into giving her information on the class divisions, promising not to share her information. She learns that Group 1 were primarily Osk Factions members, Group 2 were mainly Caspar members, and Group 3 were combined nobles and Puk Faction members.
Satisfied with her answer, Kana runs into Group 1, before sharing information about the Information Bureau and other divisions. She then reveals who each member of Group 1 was recommended by, unintentionally causing Tetty to worry about her background but also learning to trust and befriend Kana.
|Middle School of Conflict|
| Calcolo announces to her class a change of schedule to begin recreational sports in the gym. In reality, however, both Calcolo and Halna specifically changed the schedule in order to test Kana’s abilities as a Magical Girl. Calcolo proposes a mock battle against homunculi, causing the groups to begin to plan methodically to take down both other teams and the homunculi. While Group 1 plans out the fight in a concise and effective manner, Group 3 focuses on Kana and their suspicions, noting her as troublesome. Group 2, however, did not form any sort of strategy due to explaining the rules to Kana.
During the mock battle, Drill Dory is quick to use her powers against the homunculi with the rest of her teammates supporting her in a planned manner. Kumi-Kumi and Lillian, despite not having any strategy, also work together against homunculi while Group 3 attempts to attack their defenses. However, the match is then intervened when Calcolo reveals Kumi-Kumi had damaged the gym floor, breaking the rules and forcing Kumi-Kumi to sit out for the remainder of the battle.
Diko Narakunoin and Mepis begin to target one another, with Mepis attempting to use her magic to persuade Diko into relaxing. As the two begin to chase one another, Princess Lightning calls off the match and attempts to blame Dory for damaging the gym floor for dropping her drill. Wrappy defends Dory, proving there was no actual damage, but Lightning then tries to point the blame on Adelheid, causing a mini-argument within the battle. Kumi-Kumi then realizes Kana had not participated in the fight at all and tries to convince her to fight before the match begins.
Sally Raven begins to pick up the fight once more but is also eliminated once she accidentally strikes Miss Lille’s body, mistaking her black color for homunculi. Mepis, in a fit of rage, continues to chase Diko, ruining Group 2’s balance before a great, bright light consumes the battlefield, briefly interrupting the match. Due to the distraction, a homunculi sneaks up on Mepis and attempts to attack her, before Tetty kicks Mepis away to shield her from the attack- only for Tetty to be eliminated and Mepis to turn her anger to Tetty.
Meanwhile, unknown to the students, Pythie Frederica listens to Group 2’s conversation after the mock battle, noting their annoyance to Mepis’ anger and disruption during the fight. She also views Twin Dragons Panasu and a Magical Girl talking with a Mage about recommendations. Frederica then attempts to view Snow White-- only to realize her magic suddenly cannot work against Snow White, unable to display any image of her on her crystal ball.
|Where I Should Be|
| Calcolo, after teaching her history class, asks Kana about her lack of participation during gym class. Kana reasons that she had used her magic to find the weakness of the homunculi and had begun to ponder about the homunculi’s high level of intelligence due to their capacity to understand her question. Calcolo, in disbelief, gives up on questioning Kana and hastily makes up a report to Halna, attempting to bring out the positives of the gym class. Halna then warns Calcolo about Kana, telling her to stay on guard for a potential threat.
It is then revealed that the mysterious, blinding light was actually from Princess Lightning’s dagger, given to Group 1 to use in the mock battle against Group 2, specifically to focus on Kana. Tetty, feeling slightly guilty for singling out Kana, is quick to confess to Calcolo about the dagger. Calcolo accepts her answer before remarking Tetty’s talent from being recommended by the Information Bureau, leaving her even more distressed about her background.
Tetty walks over to the Gardener mage for help, asking questions about the Information Bureau. Although she was recommended by the Information Bureau, Tetty was completely unaware she was affiliated with the faction in the first place. The gardener Mage points out it was likely due to the Information Bureau’s main role was to file and collect information on Magical Girls and had noticed Tetty’s abilities before indirectly revealing he is also a member of the Information Bureau. Tetty then asks about Mepis, wondering how to make up to her. The Mage suggests to bring her to the garden as a sign of forgiveness, believing although Mepis may appear cruel on the outside, she was still forgiving and kind on the inside.
After school, Ranyui and Diko meet up and briefly discuss Lightning’s odd manner on deciding to team up with Group 1 to take down Group 2, before also talking about their actual identity as students of Lapis Lazuline the First. Meanwhile, Kana remains on the school grounds, unsure of where to go with no home and no longer having contact with Frederica. She runs into Halna, who immediately tells her to go home-- in which Kana argues back she has no home. Mepis accidentally notices the two as well, causing Halna to suggest Kana to stay with Mepis. Mepis, angered by Halna’s suggestion begins to cuss at her. Halna is quick to assert her position as principal, demanding Mepis to take Kana angrily, leaving Mepis embarrassed and distraught.
|The Sweet Trap|
| After arriving at Mepis' apartment, Mepis tells Kana that she owes her for this. Kana offers to tell Mepis how to make up with Tetty, having deduced they were once friends, but Mepis angrily brushes her off and instead demands she tell about her relationship with Halna. She asks her how she knew the students were each selected by a Magical Kingdom division. However, Kana refuses to answer and argues she only told them because she thought it would help her befriend everyone, but Mepis doesn't believe her.
Elsewhere, The Third Lapis Lazuline reports to The First Lapis Lazuline that Pythie has been aggressively recruiting Archfiend Cram School Magical Girls. However, The First argued they needed information, not manpower. She then ordered The Third to tell Princess Lightning to proceed. The Third questioned whether Diko and Ranyui should know about Lightning, but the First insisted it wasn't necessary.
At night, Adelheid tries to get inside the school, but can't due to the security golems. She then notices Princess Lightning behind her. Lightning claims there's only room for one lightning Magical Girl at Umemizaki and attacks her. After Lightning simply absorbed her lightning bolts, Adelheid manages to overpower her with physical attacks. However, Lightning turns the tide again by entering Luxury Mode. In the end, Adelheid manages to defeat Lightning by absorbing her own lightning bolt to boost her physical strength and knock her out. However, Lightning then mysteriously got back up and walked away as if nothing had happened.
Meanwhile, Diko and Ranyui map out the school under the cover of dark, but can't enter the restricted sections. They then notice Adelheid and Lightning's fight and are shocked when Lightning got back up seemingly undamaged after Abelheid knocked her out. As the police arrive due to the commotion Adelheid and Lightning caused, Diko and Ranui decide to fall back and report what had happend to Lapis Lazuline.
