In this episode, Kazuki freshly transferred in a math academy which is full of cute girls. He became an errand boy for Nina and he's going to buy her a mentaiko bread once she wants it. Sayuri was annoyed with Nina, and planned something that can dirty their names.
 Sayu and her classmates framed Kazuki for peeping at Sayu's panties. Gladly, Nina asked for a math battle to prove Kazuki's innocence. Both of their equations are convincing, but Nina won the battle to prove more evidence. After the battle, Sayu faced her punishment and Nina explained to Kazuki that Math isn't bad at all for him to hate so much.

Lesson 2
Sayuri became a Nina-lover after being defeated at the battle against Nina. Nina asked Kazuki for a mentaiko with an answered worksheet as the replacement, then he ran over the hallway to buy one. The test questionnaires for that day's exam went missing and Mami takes action of investigating of the missing test. After investigating, she returned back in their classroom and announced that the culprit for stealing the test was Kazuki, and arrested him. Mami took him to the custody and questioned him for all the information.
 
Nina tried to save him and explained that there's no way that he can get advantage of stealing the test because it doesn't contain any answers and he is too stupid and not smart at all of understanding the whole thing. To prove his innocence, they set it up into a math battle. They let Kazuki answer some various math problems and the two girls will determine if he will answer it right or wrong. In the end, Nina won and Kazuki is now innocent. The teacher happily announced that he found the questionnaires inside the photocopier and admitted that he sometimes forget things. Mami then faced her punishment which is a yummy hotdog with a lot of spicy custard as the toppings.

Lesson 3
 
It's lunch time and Nina wants to eat a bowl of Tonkotsu Ramen. However, it was easily sold out because of the Gluttony Girls. Okoba Fuyumi is their leader and she acts as the mother of the group. They can eat as much as they can. Nina was pissed off after finding out that the ramen was again sold out. Because of that case, she asked Fuyumi for a battle, however Haru faked a stomach ache to save Fuyumi from getting into the battle. In the next day, the ramen was removed in the menu and was replaced for a ramen tour.
Nina is now so mad, then she asked again for a battle and Fuyumi accepted it. Their battle will be a school race, the starting line will be at the rooftop and the finish line will be in the lunch room. The Gluttony girls are trained for having the knowledge of the shortest way to get in the lunch room which is a big advantage. But Nina won the battle and her favorite ramen is now back.

Lesson 4
 
Nina's mentaiko bread went missing and she's accusing Kazuki about it. Nina was so loud that caused the Morality squad to scold the both of them. Nina then realized that she gave her bread to Sayu since she's so hungry. After classes, both Kazuki and Sayu went to the old building of the school. Sayu's stomach aches so much and she went to that building's toilet, as for Kazuki, he let his anger of Nina out by writing a lot of things in a blackboard.
 
Just as those two did their things, a window was broken. In the next day, the teachers had a meeting about the incident. There then a classroom meeting, and two students reported that they saw Kazuki and Sayu heading to the old building and the Morality Squad asked them if who did it. They are given time to think on what to say or to stay silent. In this case, they are facing the "Prisoner's Dilemma". Nina asked to fight with Aoyama which will be based on what will Sayu and Kazuki will say at the end. At the end, neither Kazuki and Sayu accused each other which leads Nina to her victory.

Lesson 5
 
In this episode, Yuri got a chance to confess her feelings to Kazuki, and that went all to a shock. The time of changing seats came, and Yuri volunteered to hold a lottery to decide which seat everyone will get. She have 3 boxes which is A, B, and C. Yuri gave the honor to Kazuki as the first one to pick his number and she let the other pick theirs. Everyone announced their numbers and as Nina hears them, she thought something was wrong.
 
They decided for a battle, which will be about the lottery being tampered or not. If Nina can prove that Yuri is up to something and she tampered the lottery, she will get the rear seat which is the farthest from the teacher and also a good spot for sleeping, if not, Yuri will seat next to Kazuki. Nina uses her math powers and proved that it was tampered.

Lesson 6

In their homeroom, the two claiming no.1 girls had a cat fight.

 Instead of continuing this meaningless fight, they decided to do their traditional math school obstacle course that was said to be established 120 years ago. They had a tricycle navigation, the bread bite challenge, and they will dash into the finish line to decide the winner. They crossed the line at the same time, but because of of their chest size, Sayuri won.

They took advantage of using technology and asked Nina for a Math battle. It's a 3 VS. 1 battle.
 

The 3 of them used a laptop while Nina only have abacus. They scored two points but since they followed a school tradition, the last question would worth 3 points. Nina won the last problem and she encourage the first year students in continuing to do their best and be stronger.


Lesson 8

Without noticing, they entered the inner circle of the school, the elite class area. Just before they can get out of the area, 3 elite students approached and blocked their way out. They questioned them why they are outside of their circle. They captured them and tied them in a room. After realizing that Kazuki has no use, they let him go.
 
The elites asked Sayuri about the good points and who are best in each problem that will help them win the next intramural battle. Mami tried to save Sayuri but failed. Gladly, Nina saved them by battling with the Elite leader, Satoko. It is a problem of probabilities called "Monty Hall Paradox", Nina have to choose a room between A, B, and C where Sayuri was admitted. Satoko invited Nina to join the inner circle, but she refused since she's already satisfied at her own class.

This teacher is called "Waka-sama". Mami fell in love to the newly arrived student teacher. Kazuki is going home and was heading near the bus stop. He saw Waka-sama and thought that he's really cool until he caught him peeping under a woman's skirt by crouching and used a mirror. In the next day, Kazuki tried to tell the other girls about what he found out, but they can't believe it and thought that he's just jealous. Sayu and Nina believe in him but Mami don't.
 

During their class, Nina caught the student teacher peeping between Mami's legs using a mirror. Nina's explanations convinced Mami that Waka-sama is a dirty peeping tom. She then arrested him and sent him off to the principal's office with a broken heart.


Lesson 10

Reiko changed some school rules that affected the students especially Nina, Kazuki, Sayuri, Mami, and the Gluttony Girls. Fuyumi challenged Reiko for a battle but failed to win. Nina has no power to battle unless she'll eat her favorite food. She decided to eat mentaiko bread and then fight with Reiko.
 
The mistress didn't accept the challenge because she is not worth to fight with. Nina's 3 friends then volunteered to put their necks to the line. Reiko accepted the challenge and she decided to play an original form of poker. It is a 3 vs. 1 game, Reiko picked Nina, Sayuri, and Kazuki as her opponents. In the first round, Nina's team lost the game.

Lesson 11

The three students keep brainstorming about the lines Reiko said after she got defeated. Then a compass with a message flew into the room, which is said to be a school legend. It is said to be from the devil sisters.
 
Defeating the sisters will make you into a math boss. They went to the locations where the problems given are indicated. They then met the devil sisters, who are Sugamo Akino and Asakusa Seiko.

Kina gave first her explanation in proving the equation by using the Peano's Axiom, and Nina thought of it deeply. To power up Nina, Sayuri and Kazuki offered her a mentaiko bread. After eating her mentaiko bread, she is unstoppable in giving a perfect explanation. That ends the final battle of Nina and she is officially the school's no. 1. After it, Kina confessed that she just made those things up and it was all a happy prank. She explained why she disappeared, it's because she studied abroad which is a prize for being a math boss.
