The two mysterious students arrive

The episode starts with Regina who has been making a plan to get Mana away from her friends.

Meanwhile, Mana, and the others are celebrating the winter season, exciting Mana as she prepares a decorated tree. Just then, two mysterious students arrive and tell her about a Student Council Speech Contest. She would be the perfect person to enter it, and while she would like to, she hesitates realizing it would take place on Christmas. She declines the invite until Rikka tells her that she should go for it though. She promises to cover for Mana for the time being.

Regina appears out of the shadows instantly.

Throughout the next few days the girls are shown struggling to finish everything without Mana around. They manage to eventually get it settled, but find themselves frequently thinking about her.

Meanwhile, Mana, and the mysterious students head to the location of the speech event. She is welcomed, but she finds the room filled with papers- alarming her as Regina and Bel appear. Regina declares that this entire thing was a setup, and Mana is caged before she can try to escape. The mysterious students reveal themselves as Ira and Marmo afterwards.

Meanwhile, Rikka and the others are tired and worn out. But after a student gives Rikka a letter written by Mana sometime prior, saying that she isn't the type of person to give up, Rikka begins to feel encouraged again. She then finds a sorry note from Mana to her; but now she is starting to miss her.

In an attempt to free herself, Mana transforms into Cure Heart but finds herself bored with nothing to do.

By now the girls have been starting to get the hang out things, and they find it to be pretty fun. As this is going on, Regina finds a target of a Jikochuu, and she uses it to summon a Christmas Tree monster. As everyone panics, Rikka and the other girls transform to fight.
