Plot Summary

Main Summary

The third-year students go on a trip to Kyoto and Nara. Tsukasa feeds deer, however, she eventually gets trampled by them. While leaving Minoru chases the bus after being forgotten. When getting off the bus Kagami finds a letter from a boy inside her bag. The note asks her to come out at night; she thinks it is a love letter, thus thinks about it all day, not even saying stuff against Konata's childish jokes. However, it turns out that the boy called Kagami in order to get a doll that he was too embarrassed to buy. The next day, Konata leads the girls on a side trip to the offices of Kyoto Animation. The next night Konata and Kagami talk, after their conversation Kagami looks at the wall and stares at the picture they took on the trip. The episode ends with Nanako preparing to play her MMO, but she ends up having to go to bed depressed due to the server being down for maintenance.

Before the trip are several scenes adapted from the manga strips, including Hiyori's struggle to come up with ideas for her dōjinshi, and Tsukasa's struggle to wake up early. There is also an anime-only encounter at school between Konata, Kagami and Patricia.

Lucky Channel

In Lucky Channel, Minoru returns with water from Mt. Fuji in terrible condition. He gives Akira the water, but Akira spits it out and throws the bottle at him, because she hates how the water is warm. Minoru finally loses it, ranting about how tough his life is on the show while picking Akira up. Daisuke Ono then tells him that the producers had taken him off the show and this causes Minoru to become more angry. Minoru begins to tear the studio apart and knocks out two of the workers.


  • The pose which Konata and Patricia did was from the album "Cos It! Oh My Honey".
  • Konata mentions Pokemon which got bleeped out, when she said something about rubies and sapphires, referencing the games "Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire".
