Nano Shinonome, after finding out that she has duty in school today, rushes out of the Shinonome Lab and collides with a male student wearing a pair of headphones. The collision had such a massive impact that it left objects such as a Kokeshi, an Akabeko, and a piece of salmon flying in its wake. Meanwhile, Yuuko Aioi meets up with Mio Naganohara, who ignores Yuuko's "Selamat Pagi" greeting. As they are walking to school, the objects mentioned hit Yuuko on the head. In school, Yuuko and Mio meet up with Mai Minakami, who responds to Yuuko's Malay greeting, albeit wrongly. Meanwhile, Nano is shown to land on a house rooftop, causing Mother Aioi to shockingly look at her. The male student in headphones also lands on top of a chimney of a communal bath.

Mai ignores Yuuko, so Yuuko assumes that Mai is mad at her and tries to find reasons why Mai is mad at her so as to seek her forgiveness (in degrees of escalating severity), including stealing Mai's broccoli, hamburger steak, and apple, eating her rice and leaving the black beans, and breaking her Maitreya Buddha statue, taking it, burying it, and burning it in the incinerator due to a change of mind. It was later revealed that Mai was wearing her earplugs (so Yuuko assumed that Mai did not ignore her), but she actually heard what Yuuko had said about the statue.

Yuuko and Mio wanted to know if Nano had any robotic abilities since she is a robot. They decide to test her by asking her to do math, which she does by failing to use an abacus and writing on a piece of paper. Nano also takes out a thermos, which Yuuko and Mio expected it to be oil but it turned out to be soup. Mai then comes along and offers Nano a can of oil and a monkey wrench, which Yuuko and Mio were expecting her to drink and eat them respectively, but Nano decides to keep it. However, Nano takes out a screw from her mouth when she was drinking the soup and quickly hides it from her bag, but Mai has recorded her action using a video camera.

Nano complains to Hakase about the screw on her back, but hakase insists that it is cute. Nano accidentally knocks her hand on the table and it came off, revealing a gun that can shoot beans, which Nano uses to shoot at Hakase. This is followed by Nano knowing about the many mostly useless features that Hakase installed on her, which she reacts by shooting at Hakase when each feature is known to her.

Misato attempts to get Koujirou to seriously decide on what to do for the culture festival as both of them are on the Culture Festival Committee. However, Koujirou is uncooperative and even suggests to Misato to hold a wine tasting competition, which she rejects. He also constantly distracts himself with all sorts of things and gets shot by Misato when she finds out about it. In the end, Koujirou excuses himself to the toilets and decides to try his best to cooperate with Misato as he leaves, but ends up getting shot by Misato again when she was caught by wearing the same bear mask that Koujirou wore at the beginning of the chapter due to her tsundere attitude and feelings for Koujirou.

During a cold autumn day, the students stand outside the school and listen to the Principal address the school with his stale jokes. Yuuko sees Mai laughing and assumes that she is laughing at the Principal's jokes, but she was actually laughing at the string on the back of Yuuko's head. Meanwhile, Sakurai-sensei nervously addresses the students as Guidance Counselor and decides to tell them not to bring goats to school, with strong objection from Koujirou (who got shot by Misato again while voicing his objection). Mio then faints due to her crush on Koujirou and her overimagination of her and Koujirou being married and riding on the said goat, which leads to her being taken away by Mai and Yuuko. Sakurai-sensei then questions the whole school about the Maitreya statue found in her shoe locker. However, nobody among the students responded and the Principal decides to admit that it was him who gave Sakurai-sensei the statue as a birthday present.

Yuuko is punished for not handing up her homework by standing outside the class. As she stands outside the class, she spots the Principal wrestling with a deer and performing a German suplex on it. As they wrestled, Yuuko goes ballistic and even assumes that the Principal might be dead as she watches. Finally, Yuuko storms into the classroom afterwards to tell the class about it, but eventually decides not tell and is punished more severely, this time carrying two buckets of water. The reason why Yuuko decides to not tell the class is because she wanted to pay respects to the "heroes involved in that desperate struggle".

Principal tells Sakurai sensei that moral standards have been falling in school, and asks her to enforce morality. Feeling her responsibility as a student advisor, Sakurai sensei is determined to be more strict. Koujirou is caught eating a fancy steak breakfast by Sakurai sensei. Sakurai sensei asks him to not do that, and Koujirou complies with no resistance. After a comical expression by Koujirou, Misato spins up her gatling gun, but instead of shooting, she asks Koujirou to speak to her later instead. Sakurai sensei notices Koujirou's cute frills on his shirt and asks him what that is. Koujirou responds with a comment that is not related to this conversation with the statement "Everyday is a series of miracles" (This statement is a recurring theme throughout the Nichijou anime) in a very profound manner. Sakurai sensei tries to re-focus the conversation back to the frills on his shirt, and Koujirou gives another non-sense answer.
