Nagi is playing her fierce video games that is not allowed for her age while she introduces herself. Hayate warns her about her game that Maria will be angry but she doesn't listen. In the end Maria instantly unplugs the TV to make her stop playing.

One morning, Nagi inadvertently wakes up early at the Sanzenin Mansion. She trys to go back to sleep but fails. Nagi then takes a walk outside and discovers how the early mornings can be so delightful. She started to feel hungry and follows a scent of cooking and found Hayate in the kitchen. Hayate asks her why she came to the kitchen and then found out that she was hungry. He made a quick breakfast for Nagi and served her black coffee. She found out about that and scolded him for thinking that she would fall asleep after eating. After eating breakfast, Nagi nearly lost to her sleepy and fell to sleep. She tries not to get sleepy by doing some exercise which isn’t easy for someone of her lifestyle. That made her really tired and ends up in that she goes back to bed. Maria is confused that Nagi was sleeping in different clothes.

After Nagi woke up again she felt bored and decide to go visit Doujinshi. Game. Comic. V. Tachibana to rent some DVDs. There Nagi found a R-18 naked DVD put on the wrong shelf by Saki. She trys to see the box cover but gets interrupted by Hayate and Wataru. In order to rent it without problem, Nagi mixes the DVD with a stack of random ones in order to get it. However, when she presents it to Shiranui in her tree house Nagi found out she had grabbed an R-18 horror DVD by mistake when Hayate approached her at the shop. Nagi decides to watch it because it is still R-18. Wataru found out about that DVD and tells Saki about how scary the movie is. Ending up watching the whole film Nagi becomes terrified. Because of her fears, Nagi begs Hayate to stay by her side all day until she’d fallen asleep and suppres her fears. That's mean he needs to stay with her until bedtime. Maria didn't allow this at first, but she had no choice except to allow it. During the night, Nagi tries to sleep but can't because of the conversation about her bad behaviors between Maria and Hayate. After Nagi falls asleep she has a nightmare. Hayate whispers to her and gives her a good dream. Next morning, Maria found out about that DVD. She also watches the film and its déjà vu.

Shifting back to the Violet Mansion, Nagi decides not to go to school because of the rain. Because Maria has the shopping to do she leaves everything to Hayate. He thinks that Nagi is so lazy like a koala. Nagi founds out about what he was thinking and scolds him. Hayate tries to persuade her but it doesn't work. Nagi tells him that she lost all of her motivation because of her manga. Isumi, who would like to go to school but got lost again advised Hayate that Nagi always lose to famous quotes. Hayate tries one on Nagi. It's works but is not enough to make her willing to go to school. Hayate asks for a quote from Hinagiku. But that quote is too hard for Nagi to understand. He ask from Ayumu but also fails. Hayate tries the quote from Chiharu on Nagi but ends up making her loss more motivation. Maria comes back and finds out about the situation. She lends Nagi some money saying it represents life. Turn your life into yen, and you have only enough to buy one game console. This amount will never increase. This quote finally inspires Nagi to go to school together with Hayate admitting that morning days are interesting.
