She heads to her class with barely any emotion as a white-haired woman with a Fender Jazzmaster guitar watches her from afar. Meanwhile, Ko Ide brags to his friends about his relationship with the homeroom teacher, but leaves the details vague. After their homeroom teacher performs a strange lesson, Hidomi later returns to help her mother with their family's cafe. As Hidomi's mother talks about her missing father and possibly "moving on," the white-haired woman from before smashes a vintage Chevy Bel-Air into Hidomi's head, which "unfortunately" leaves her alive. Hidomi heads back to her room as the woman remarks that she keeps her unique headphones on to drown out the world. As Hidomi ponders what she meant, a large mechanical creature tries to attack her. Hidomi runs from the creature, as it suddenly throws Ide at her, who reveals that the creature came from his head. The two then run into a junkyard and are cornered by the creature. As Hidomi begins to "overflow," the white-haired woman appears again in her Chevy and destroys the creature, before carrying off a wounded Ide. The next morning, the white-haired woman introduces herself as Julia Jinyu, a new worker at the cafe. At school, the homeroom teacher goes on a rant about "being adults" and "having only two wheels" that seems to brainwash the whole class, save for Hidomi and Ide, revealing herself to be an orange-haired Haruko Haruhara. show less

Later, Haruko asks Hidomi to give Ide, who was absent, his classwork. Hidomi heads to a slum on the outskirts of town, where Goro reveals that Ide has been hard at work making and selling machinery and getting beaten in the process. Watching Ko being beaten by some shady customers causes Hidomi to get a nosebleed, and she starts to overflow, but she faints before anything happens. She later wakes up in Ide's room; after an awkward moment, Haruko appears with a video camera, and Jinyu crashes the scene with her Chevy Bel-Air, which has transformed into a humanoid mech. Haruko counters by attaching a leash to Ko and summoning the same mechanical creature from the first episode through Hidomi's N.O. portal. As the two women fight each other, Jinyu revealing herself to be an off-shoot of Haruko while attempting to convince her to stop chasing Atomsk down after the first attempt which created her, Hidomi overcomes her inhibitor and transforms into a tiny mechanical doll, blowing Haruko away with tremendous force before returning to human form. Jinyu then converts her Chevy into a medical device and places both Hidomi and Ide into it, Haruko now knowing Hidomi is her target. Hidomi comes to and, finally remembering to give Ide his classwork, the two begin to laugh together. show less

Hidomi finds herself dragged along with Jinyu, who insists on keeping her from Haruko. Meanwhile, calling Goro's bluff of having a girlfriend, Ide and Marco meet a shy girl with flowerpot named Aiko. As Jinyu and Haruko talk about their goals, the kids enjoy their time on the beach, playing volleyball and building a sandcastle. Despite agreeing to a momentarily ceasefire with Jinyu, Haruko buries her under sand and cement before abducting Hidomi before anyone can notice they are missing. As Marco uncovers that Goro is actually paying Aiko and is given her potted plant, Ide, having realized Hidomi is gone, finds her in a crumbling, dilapidated Medical Mechanica factory on an operating table, where Haruko is trying to make her overflow. Seeing Hidomi's half-naked body causes Ide to overflow instead, and a giant blob monster erupts from his forehead. During the ensuing battle, Hidomi accidentally kisses Ide's chest, causing a large floating junk pile to emerge from her body. With Jinyu's help, Ide frees Hidomi, but Haruko convinces him to try to remove Hidomi's headphones. When he touches them, the headphones' security protocol activates, screwing them into the sides of Hidomi's head as the pile of junk falls back to Earth. Reluctantly, Haruko opts to team up with Jinyu to take the fight to the headphones' creators: Medical Mechanica. show less

Jinyu formulates a plan to attack the active Medical Mechanica plant in town to destroy the signal keeping the headphones in security mode. Meanwhile, revealed to possessed the remains of an inactive Canti which he has been using to develop N.O.-powered technology, Eye Patch and Masuro attempt to find the missing flowerpot that the latter's daughter Aiko gave to Goro, revealed to have ability to reverse N.O. Channel polarity. Jinyu, Haruko, and Ide snatch Hidomi off the street in Jinyu's car and fly her to the top of the Medical Mechanica plant, only to reach a dead end when they realize they have no way to enter the plant. While Haruko and Jinyu argue, Hidomi begins playing with Aiko's flowerpot and accidentally drops it on Ide's head, reversing his portal's polarity and sucking Jinyu and Haruko into the factory's interior. Inside the plant, Jinyu, wanting nothing more than to allow Atomsk to remain free, attempts to reason with Haruko before unintentionally provoking her, sparking a fight. The damage they cause to the factory's interior deactivates the headphones, allow them to use Hidomi's N.O. Channel to continue their fight outside. Meanwhile, having manifested a N.O. Channel from an earlier encounter with Hidomi, Marco is testing a Viking Cruise ship ride at a nearby theme park when it suddenly launches him at the plant; a giant bamboo shoot sprouts from his portal, and a small robot puppet climbs up it, getting involved in the fight against Haruko. Ide tries to rescue Hidomi as the car begins rolling off the side of the plant, and Jinyu catches them, only to be fatally wounded by Haruko. Haruko destroys the bamboo shoot and then devours Jinyu, the latter act restoring Haruko to her original pink-haired self. She then asks for Hidomi's help in absorbing Atomsk once more, but Hidomi, having caught glimpses of Haruko's previous attempt and her intentions with Atomsk's power, puts her headphones back on and refuses. show less

However, in a manga-style scenario, Hidomi becomes upset when she learns her mother intends to close the café. Meanwhile, Eye Patch and Masuro travel to Oozu City so they can use the Immigration Center Orbit Elevator in the disposing of Canti's remains. Later at school, a seemingly pregnant Haruko announces her retirement from teaching to marry her beloved while giving the class a false anecdote about how she met Atomsk before sending them off to the amusement park to find love. Only Ide and Hidomi remain, with the former using Jinyu's guitar to confront Haruko in the school's empty swimming pool while demanding that she stop dragging Hidomi into her plans. Haruko overpowers Ide in the duel, expressing disappointment that he has failed to learn anything before seducing him when he retorts that she didn't satisfy him. When Hidomi finds Haruko on top of Ide, she overflows with her power reducing Ide to a featureless husk while Haruko apologizes thinly and leaves. At the husk's gasping request, Hidomi takes it in her arms and stands under the pool shower with it before it inflates like a balloon and floats up into the stratosphere. In orbit, Ide's husk is picked up by the Immigration Center's Lost-and-found satellite and grounded before an elderly woman who feeds it to Canty's head after suddenly whirling to life. At the theme park, revealed to be a front for the Interstellar Immigration Department, Tonkichi begins the operation of collecting N.O. energy from the high concentration of adolescents present while combining the park's rides into a large robot to attack the Medical Mechanica factory. Meanwhile, having regained her figure once she finished digesting Jinyu, Haruko finds herself being attacked by a furious Hidomi after she used her power to augment herself into a cyborg. As they duel, Hidomi asserts that Haruko's obsession with Atomsk makes her "no different from the rest of them" and that she is "just a girl in love". They soon stop fighting when sky turns red, Haruko whispers that Atomsk has arrived on Earth. show less

Haruko continues to goad Hidomi into fighting her, using her N.O. energy to build a massive birdcage with the intent to trap Atomsk. However, Atomsk proves too powerful and uses his own N.O. channel to suck Hidomi and Haruko into a different dimension. In response to Atomsk's presence, the Medical Mechanica building begins firing mochi-like projectiles into the city, trapping most of the populace. Eye Patch and Masurao are hit by one of the mochi projectiles, and Masurao tells Aiko that he doesn't intend to activate her since he knew she was gathering money to buy her own freedom from the Immigration Bureau and pleads for her to flee. Feeling guilty, Aiko recruits Goro and Hidomi's mother to recover the flowerpot, which activates her hidden functions and opens up a direct line of communication to Hidomi through Canti's head. Hidomi takes the opportunity to make amends with her mother, telling her that they don't have to keep the cafe open to wait for her father, but simply so they can continue living together. Hidomi decides to remove her limiter to open an N.O. portal back to Earth, but cannot work up the nerve. A newly rebuilt Canti removes Hidomi's limiter for her and she turns into a Canti-like robot. Hidomi, Haruko, and Canti are able to escape back to Earth, where they discover that Canti is holding both Ide and Atomsk inside him. Both Hidomi and Haruko battle to claim Atomsk's power, culminating in them kissing Canti at the same time. Hidomi is able to rescue Ide while Haruko seemingly absorbs Atomsk. However, Haruko fails to contain his power, and both Atomsk and Jinyu are able to free themselves from her and Atomsk escapes back into space. Haruko cries in Jinyu's arms at having let Atmosk slip away again. Meanwhile, Aiko uses her powers to completely destroy the Medical Mechanica building, returning all of the civilians back to normal. Aiko also begins developing feelings for Goro after seeing how much he cares about her. Afterwards, life returns to normal as the city rebuilds itself. Haruko and Jinyu part ways, with Haruko continuing her hunt for Atomsk. Hidomi and Ide enter a relationship, and Hidomi finally comes to terms with her insecurities. show less
