notice something seems off about her. As they continue to work, neither of them are surprised either.

After a moment of bickering with Aiko, Doremi suddenly appears sullen, saying that her crushes never end well. She then brings up how her dad will be going on a camping trip soon though, and since Shingo will be there she had agreed to go. She asks Aiko and Hazuki to join them for support, then asks for advice on how to get Shingo to like her, and Aiko brings up how common interest usually helps. Doremi points out that he fishes a lot, so they use their magic to summon a glass fishing tank in order to let Doremi practice.

Majorika arrives just in time to see the glass shatter, spilling fish and water in the room and complaining until the girls inform her of their plans. She is alright with this but asks to let her and Lala come as well. The girls are unsure if she can trusted to not cause trouble however, and they end up bailing at the last second to avoid giving an answer.

The next morning, Doremi has gotten up bright and early in order to make meals for the day. Keisuke is also preparing, while Pop and Haruka discuss what is going on with Doremi as of late. Pop thinks it's really obvious that Doremi is only going because of a crush, assuring their mother that she wont need to worry about her suddenly developing an interest in boys; going on to say that she has a date in the park before she takes off. Haruka looks on in exasperation.

Meanwhile, Majorika is wondering where the girls are and finds a note saying they already left. She is extremely angry and decides to punish them for it later.
Onigiri

On the ride to the fishing spot Doremi notices one of the lunches moving and looks inside to see Dodo eating an onigiri. She scolds her until finding out Aiko and Hazuki snuck Mimi and Rere with them as well.

Upon arrival, Doremi begins to gush as Shingo greets her and Keisuke, and they are joined by Shingo's father after she introduces him to Aiko and Hazuki. As his dad rudely comments on his disinterest in fishing and walks away, Shingo explains that he won't be able to come fishing after this trip, due to having to take his middle school entrance exams. He also says his dad doesn't like fishing, or consider it a skill so he forced him to come on the trip in hopes of him seeing for himself how great it can be.

Before the girls go, Doremi warns their fairies to stay in the car while Aiko and Hazuki ask Shingo to teach Doremi to fish in hopes of breaking the ice. He agrees and Keisuke goes to his father to ask if he would like to fish as well, but he refuses. It's then they think Shingo caught something but unfortunately its just an empty juice can- much to his fathers amusement.

The mood begins to dampen as Aiko excuses herself, followed by Hazuki, and the girls make a plan to cast magic on the lake to summon a lot of fish. Before they can, they happen to notice their fairies trying to grab a fish when Shingo accidentally catches Dodo's dress. She struggles to pull away and Aiko suggests Hazuki just turn her into a fish; but Hazuki accidentally turns her into a carp flag due to being unable to think of what fish could be in this lake.

By this point Shingo gives up as his father points out he would be better off studying. Doremi tries to console him but it doesn't work.

Suddenly, Rere and Mimi come over and show Hazuki and Aiko that Majorika is there and they find her using a magic net to catch a lot of fish- which is why nobody else can get any. The girls tell her off for this, but she claims they deserve it for leaving her behind, although Lala feels remorse for the others. Hazuki and Aiko try to apologize for leaving her behind  in hopes to get her to release the fish, then they trick her by promising they have used their magic for a hot spring and will massage her if she joins them in another location. She agrees and they fly away while the fairies untie the string keeping the net together, releasing all of the fish.

By sunset, Shingo remains gloomy but he thanks his father for joining them anyway. This surprises his dad as he explains how it's been a really long time that he's gone camping with his father, and he really valued their time together. Just then they all notice fish are beginning to grab their lures, and Shingo's father lends him a hand to catch his; going on to claim that fishing is alright while flustered.

As Doremi wonders where all the fish came from, Aiko and Hazuki explain what happened as they return. They go on to have dinner as evening arrives, eating Doremi's meals and the fish while the adults drink. Doremi

happens to find Shingo sitting by himself and she forces herself to approach and join him. He thanks her for coming and she gets flustered momentarily.

Meanwhile, Hazuki and Aiko watch and decide to use their magic to make the mood romantic.

Doremi decides to use this moment to confess, but suddenly she struggles and changes the subject. She brings up how romantic the stars look and Shingo agrees, then she asks about when he will be able to fishing again. After he answers, she tries to confess again when he suddenly mentions that he will have to bring his girlfriend next time.
Sad Doremi

Doremi is utterly crushed by the news, and she can't resist crying while Shingo remains oblivious. She sees Aiko and Hazuki from the bushes nearby as they attempt to give her further support, which only makes her mood worse, claiming the fireworks display isn't helping as she resumes crying.
