First-year high school student Asagaya Minoa is not much of an anime nerd, but there is a show that she watched as a child, but can't remember the name of. Kamiigusa Arisu, the well-to-do resident anime otaku of her class, might be able to help.
Arisu explains to Minoa about anime prodution and business. In order to to prove their club is productive, the club is asked by the Drama Club to help with the costumes for their play. However Erika hits a roadblock when designing the costumes.
The anime club is traveling to certain places in Japan that anime used for their stage (currently going to Oorai). Meanwhile, Kai is suffering from lovestruck from Miko and Minoa is trying to find her goal in the club while getting into a string of bad luck situations.
With the culture festival coming up, the anime club decide to participate to show their progress. However when the student council rejected the anime screening, they decided to do anime shorts which actually is harder than it looks.
Tsubaki proposes the anime club fill the auditorium or the club will be shutdown. The anime club must complete their presentation and get a full house in 2 days. Minoa and Maya find out their dad's secret (even though it's not a big deal).
