As Emi continues coming to the Card Capital Card Shop, the (Sub) Manager convinces her to try the game out for herself. While approaching the game shop, Morikawa has his fortune told and he finds that he will have luck with his juniors today (however, Izaki corrects him and says that he'll have terrible luck today). When they arrive at the card shop, Aichi is surprised when Emi is preparing to play Vanguard. Emi is handed Misaki's deck as the (Sub)Manager wants both Aichi and Emi to battle together. However, Morikawa wishes to take Aichi's place and a battle between the new player Emi and the "Expert Naive Player" Lose-umi begins. Can Emi win despite her lack of knowledge of the game? Or will Morikawa manage to defeat her in her first game?
