The Bests of Higashi Murayama and Tokorozawa face off in a public park. A "trainee" Rest named Nozomi arrives late with some dango from her family's restaurant, until the Rest on both sides are all blown away by the force of Maccha Green's attack. The next day, an absent-minded girl crashes her bike into the headquarters of the Hiroshi Town Propellers, and reveals that she had traveled for three days straight despite living in the same town. Masami accidentally meets Kuniko while eating at a nearby ramen shop, and ends up challenging her to an unofficial ramen-eating contest. The Propellers then find a bus waiting to take them to a local amusement park, only to trapped on the roller coaster as hostages for Higashi Murayama.
