Trying to find her new school, Cocoa meets a girl named Chiya Ujimatsu, her to-be classmate. After it turns out school doesn't begin until the next day, the four girls decide to hang out. They learn to make bread, and pay a visit to the shop ran by Chiya's family.
Cocoa recalls that a customer from the other day told her that she had an older-sister complex. While she seems to be excited, Rize is a bit confused by hearing this while Chino realizes she doesn't really know what it means.
Dressed for school, Cocoa practices a few various student-type looks; ranging from Studious to a cool delinquent. She is joined by Chino, who tells her its time to get going. They say goodbye and take off, with Cocoa happy to see that for part of the way, they go on the same path. She expresses shock later, after realizing it only took a minute or two for Chino to separate from her and meet up with her friends.
Cocoa continues on her way when she happens to spot Rize up ahead. They exchange a few words after Cocoa compliments how cool her uniform looks. But Rize seems to notice something strange after Cocoa passes by her a second time. Followed by a third, fourth, and fifth - causing her to eventually lose her patience as Cocoa asks if Rize got lost.
As she heads down another path, Cocoa happens to spot a white rabbit. Another one comes out as she picks up the one and cuddles with it, then spots someone holding out a chestnut youkan. As many other rabbits surround her, Cocoa sits down to see them and observe her, causing the two girls to stare at each other for a few minutes before they sit down on a bench together and she lets Cocoa have the youkan. She compliments Cocoa's name before introducing herself as Chiya. She is happy Cocoa likes the Youkan and mentions being the maker of it, and reveals the name for her creation. Cocoa doesn't seem to understand the name itself but she comments that it sounds cool, convincing Chiya they will be good friends.
After Chiya notices they wear the same school uniform, Cocoa panics as she sees the time. She quickly grabs Chiya's hand and starts to yank her around - but after they circle the area once, Chiya gets her to stop to reveal they don't have an entrance ceremony today. As Cocoa reacts to the news, Chiya suggests they go to take a look at the school anyway, to avoid getting lost again. Cocoa gratefully agrees to it, and soon they reach the front gate.
Cocoa is bursting with excitement again and comments on all the things she will do while here. As this is going on, she suddenly recalls to have already graduated from Middle School, where they are standing right now, having gotten it mixed up.
Chino and her friends separate from each other once the school day ends. She finds Cocoa cleaning and asks how the day went. Cocoa continues to dodge the questioning, until she eventually tells her not to ask any further.
The next day the girls are leaving school when they happen to smell bread from the bakery. Cocoa admits that her family worked with bread in the past - so she'd love to make some again while here. Chiya is able to relate with the Japanese sweets she makes, but she admits that she always has the most fun when it comes to naming the products.
After getting to Rabbit House and changing into her uniform, Cocoa asks about an oven and comments that they should come up with a Menu Board for it whenever they have a day off. Rize reminds them to get back to work, but she struggles to concentrate, being rather hungry herself.
A bit later, the girls get together to try to come up with some recipes. Cocoa introduces Rize and Chino to Chiya, as well as Tippy - who Chiya mistakenly believes to be a dog. As the girls chat, Rize mentally comments that they should probably be told he is an Angora Rabbit. She goes on to mention hearing from Chino that she could make bread. They watch as Cocoa appears to be really fired up, which encourages Rize to follow her orders, along with Chiya and a concerned Chino, who finds it overbearing.
With that, Cocoa decides that instead of making yakisoba bread, she's going to make yakiudon bread. Chiya mentions bringing along Azuki beans, plums, and nori seaweed with her, and Chino brings up the salmon roe, natto, salmon, and konbu seaweed with sesame she found. As Rize comments that they are making bread, she reveals the Strawberry, and marmalade jams she found. Cocoa explains the process of forming bread, unaware of how freaked out Chino is getting at the possibility of something strange like yeast fungus being in the bread. She watches as Cocoa forms it together using her hand, then together, each of them try to form dough. Rize is able to do it pretty easily, while Chiya is a bit worn out but tries to get past it to avoid creating more work for Kokoa to have to handle.
In the hour the bread takes to sit, the girls use the time to patient wait and rest. They resume working on the dough, rolling it out and preparing small mounds of it into various shapes to put on a tray. As Chino puts her own into the oven, she reveals shaping hers like her grandfather. But after she makes a comment about "baking grandfather", Tippy starts freaking out while watching from the top of her head.
Cocoa calls Chiya to reveal the latte art she worked out for her. She is happy it worked out, and Chiya goes on to take a sip - only to stop as she observes Cocoa giving her alarmed expressions each time she does it. After the third time, she is quick to try to down the drink while Cocoa mentions Chino has been observing the oven for a while now. Rize, out of curiosity joins her to see what is so entertaining, and soon they finish.
The girls try the various breads out and seem surprised by how good they turned out, but Rize comments that none of them actually sound all that appealing. Cocoa then reveals the Tippy Bread she made, and they remark that it looks cute. They believe it would be good for the Menu and they each try one as Cocoa reveals putting Strawberry Jam in it. While it ended up tasting good, Rize comments that it may be a bit too horrific for the customers.
The next day the girls search for the Coffee Shop Chiya's family runs. She recalls it as Ama Usa, and Chino reveals that it is a rivaling shop with Rabbit House. They soon reach the location of Ama Usa An and step inside to find Chiya. They greet her and spot a black rabbit named Anko. Chiya mentions he doesn't really move all that much until he spots Tippy, then he knocks Chino over while giving chase. They wonder if he's territorial - but Chiya is convinced it had to have been love. Which leaves Cocoa confused, since she thought Tippy was a boy. Chino claims Tippy is a female, but not on the inside.
With the girls seated, Chiya serves them some green tea with latte art. She mentions being unable to make cutesy ones like they do, but she made some fancier ones instead - including one with writing in it asking Cocoa why her hair is in braids. She hands Rize a menu and she reads over the long names she has come up with: Trio of Glistening Gems, Red Jewel in a Snowy Field, Moon and Stars Reflected Upon the Sea, Triplet Gems of the Flowering Capital, Golden Shachihoko Special, Princess's Jewelry Box, Frozen Evergreen, Ephemeral Ophelia, and Milky Way of Summer Memories. To their surprise, Kokoa seems to translate the menu very well, so the other two decide to other something random and see what happens.
Eventually Chiya returns with the sweets. Bringing Rize the Moon and Stars Reflected Upon the Sea, the Triplet Gems of the Flowering Capital for Chino, and the Golden Sachihoko for Cocoa. They each try some but stop when they notice Anko doesn't seem to want the Chestnut Youkan Chiya offered him. As Cocoa seems to think he may want some of theirs, she offers a bite to him if he will let her cuddle him later - but instead of accepting that he leaps over and digs into her sweet until Chiya is able to put him back on his stand.
As Chino remarks that they don't sell things like this at Rabbit House, Chiya comes up with the idea of them forming a collaboration item. She is sure it could work, but Chino and Cocoa start to picture the merchandising they could come up with it instead.
After they finish, Cocoa asks Chino if she would like to pet Anko. Rize brings up that no other animal seems to like her besides Tippy, but she seems pretty interested and gets up to approach Anko. She hesitantly reaches out to touch his ear, then when he doesn't do anything she slowly rubs his back, then hesitantly picks him up and cuddles him. She puts him on the top of her head, and Anko seems not to mind. With that Rize suggests they take off for Rabbit House, and Cocoa brings up that if she was staying with Chiya, she'd probably work there instead.
They mention that she would fit in fine with the shop since its a lot like Rabbit House, but Cocoa starts to grow worried seeing how Chiya seriously supports the off-handed comment. With that the girls take off, but they forget to grab Tippy, accidentally bringing Anko home. Which only Chiya seems to realize as she watches Tippy weirdly eat the Chestnut Youkan.
