The Battler trio introduce themselves on by one while posing on a mysterious stage.
SummaryDoremi is in the middle of watching one of her favorite programs as an impatient Pop tries to get her to come with her, since they need to get to the Maho-do. She approaches Doremi to yell at her; but become distracted after they spot that the Princess of the program is being played by Onpu.
Throughout class the next day, everyone watches while two students reenact the scenes from the episode that was on the previous night. Everyone is happy and having fun, but when Kota brings up that Onpu was the princess, attention is quick to be cast towards her. Doremi can't help but comment how cute Onpu was, but this causes Aiko and Hazuki suspiciously ask her about watching the show. She claims she was only imagining things; although they are not entirely convinced.
At the end of the day while Onpu is at her shoe locker with some fans when a bully approaches and asks Onpu for a few autographs. Onpu is kind of annoyed but she quickly agrees to it anyway; but gets stopped when Kota shows up and reminds everyone that treating Onpu like an idol is against the school rules. But he starts to argue with the bullies, which causes the Vice Principal to come by. He scolds Onpu for what she had been doing and begins to drag her back to the office. Kota follows them and tries to tell the Vice Principal what occured, but he does not listen and pushes right past him instead.
As they go into the office, Doremi, Hazuki, and Aiko approach for a better look. Inside, the vice principal voices his dissaproval over Onpu's idoling and states that school should be her only priority. In the middle of lecturing her, he gets a phone call and tells Onpu to stay put before leaving the room. Onpu agrees, then takes out her tap while claiming that she has no intention to stay here for much longer.The trio worry, but before they can stop her they are caught by Seki-sensei and Kota; who have shown up to see what is going on. Unknown to them all, Onpu is quick to sneak into the room and casts magic before changing back to normal; so that by the time the front door opens she is standing with the Vice Principal; who insists that Onpu is not in any trouble at all. He was only there to tell her how much of a wonderful student she is.
As Onpu heads home, the ojamajo try to make her realize that she's still using forbidden magic. But Onpu could care less and she reveals to them the Magic Charm Majoruka made for her. But before the discussion gets any further, Kota shows up to ask Onpu if she is alright. She insists that she is, and they begin to discuss her role as the Princess on Battle Rangers instead. For a moment, Onpu seems to be honestly touched after realizing how much her role truly means to Kota, and as thanks she invites him to come with her to the stage where Battle Rangers is filmed, because she has work there to do now.
Unknown to everyone though, Hashimoto had witnessed this...
At the Maho-do the ojamajo are too gloomy to do any work at the time. Majorika questions them but Dela shows up, demanding the months bill as it is late. She proceeds to have a little cat and mouse with Majorika until Majorika finally tells her that she does not have any money. She is scolded by Dela, then claims that Majoruka has never been this rude or irresponsible. This worries Hazuki and she points out that this probably means that Onpu has a good supply of Magic Spheres on hand and could use a whole bunch of them whenever she wants.
At the stage, Onpu brings Battler Red to meet Kota before she takes him home that night. He thanks Onpu for being so nice to him, and Onpu insists that she didn't mind; because he actually appreciated her talent as an actor rather then her cuteness as an idol. Unknown to them however, Shimakura happened to walking her dog and saw them. So she takes this moment to eavesdrop, only to be confronted by Hashimoto when he happens to spot her. She is then asked to give Kota a note the next day, because she is in his class.
The following day at school, she rushes into the classroom while gathering everyones attention. She informs them that a fight will be taking place at Misora Park between Hashimoto and Kota. Which everyone begins to question and critisize Hashimoto for being rude. They can't understand why someone a few grades older then them would even pick a fight with him. But without a second thought Kota accepts the challange.
As this goes on, Onpu tries to claim that Hashimoto is not a bad person, but Kota only promises to handle everything and protect Onpu. Everyone is able to see how much he is into this hero role, but Doremi is the only person who agrees with his passionate words while Hazuki points out that fighting is wrong.
At home, Onpu arrives just as her mother is leaving to grab them something for dinner. Onpu is quite unhappy though because she hates peppers, but her mom does not mind and insists that Onpu should be so picky. So as she is getting into their van, Onpu uses her magic to make her mother change her mind so that they can go out to eat, instead.
Later that day, Kota calls out Hashimoto for bringing partners to a one-on-one fight, then calls it unfair. Hashimoto suddenly points out that he also brought a long a lot of partners and Kota turns to see Kotake, Kimura, and the ojamajo there for support. He thanks them, but when Doremi gets into it, Hazuki and Aiko question her once again. It's then the fight begins. Things seem to be alright, but the ojamajo fear this may turn ugly and try to find a way to stop it by using magical stage. As they go to do this, Shimakura, who was spying on the entire event, goes to find a teacher for help before everyone gets really hurt.
After they transform into the Majo Rangers, Aiko and Hazuki begin to panic and react accordingly. Though Doremi is entirely serious for once and she manages to just stop Hashimoto from hurting Kota! The ojamajo introduce themselves, leaving their true identities ambigous. Though Hazuki and Aiko are still embaressed...
When Hazuki suggests they should leave from the embaressement, Doremi scolds her for not addressing her as Pink. Hashimoto then pounces and begins to beat them up until Kota yells at them to stop fighting. As Hashimoto explains he is angry at Kota for stealing away Onpu from him and the fan club, Kota then questions this when Hashimota accuses him of going on a date with her. He denies this and instead explains what really happened and that he isn't into Onpu like everyone else is. He appreciates her other side, her princess role from battle ranger. Kota changes the subject to ask why he's always asking for Onpu's autograph.
To which Hashimoto explains that after he got the one for his little sister, he promised her friends he could get one for them too. But since Onpu is always so busy he can only get them at school. Kota then smiles before offering to give him Onpu's photograph and promises to run copies of it to give to Hashimoto's little sisters friends. As thanks for such a nice gesture, Hashimoto offers to give him the battle ranger plastic model. His family runs a toy shop so he can give him one. As the boys share a laugh, the ojamajo flee the area as Shimakura and Seki-sensei show up to stop the fight.
A little bit later, it's revealed that the ojamajo are laying in a heap on the other side of the hill as the other students and Seki-sensei approach to check on them. They claim to be fine and okay, and the episode comes to an end...
