|Rito Yūki is a fifteen-year-old boy who has tried to confess to the girl whom he loves, Haruna Sairenji, numerous times but has been unable to do so through the strangest of circumstances. Meanwhile a mysterious extraterrestrial girl named Lala runs away to Earth in order to avoid daily arranged marriage candidate interviews set up by her father, the king of her home planet, Deviluke, as well as Emperor of the Milky Way Galaxy and Ruler of the known universe. Using one of her own inventions, she teleports naked into Rito's bathtub, where he accidentally gropes her breasts. It is later revealed to him that this is equivalent to a marriage proposal on Deviluke, and Lala happily accepts that she is to become Rito's future bride. Because Rito tried to save her from her uncle Zastin who came on the order of her father to bring Lala back home, Rito, on the other hand, due to his feelings for Haruna, does not want anything to do with Lala.|

Zastin tells him that he must feel up Lala's breasts once more within the first three days of his engagement in order to call it off. While he attempts many times to touch Lala's breasts, he does not make it in time, and thus is stuck with the engagement. The next day while at school, a new transfer student is announced to the class.

Darkness becomes confused and goes berserk causing her transformation to wear off. One of Darkness's feathers sticks to Mea allowing her to see how Rito implanted that 'bug' on Yami.

Peke has Lala disguised as Haruna and joins in on their conversation. Next, when Haruna and Rito fall safely on the floor with her clothes, her dog, Maron, begins to sense her and they hide underneath her panties. Before Rito is about to have their chance to make a run for it, Haruna stopped him and they kissed each other accidentally after Maron leaves when he heard Lala's voice, thought to be Haruna.After having dinner with Mikan and Nana, Rito is delighted that he finally has his kiss with Haruna, but he started to worry if this experience might make her hate him. While he was being unexpectedly seduced by Momo, Haruna started to feel worried as well if the kiss might have made Rito uncomfortable. At school, while Nana is having conversations with Mea about babies born in the cyber safari, Rito started to stay away from Haruna, which makes Haruna think he hated her. After helping Rito escort from Yui and Run, Momo convinced him to confess his feelings towards Haruna, while Oshizu, who she told the whole thing to, wants her to do the same with Rito. Next, Rito and Haruna meet up and they feel anxious about what they want to say. However, before Rito was about to confess his feelings, Haruna abruptly apologized to him, much to his shock. They decide to let it slide and feel relieved that they're not angry at each other, much to Oshizu's disappointment at her for not confessing her feelings to him. Suddenly, the Kyu-Octopuses appeared with Nana and Mea around its tentacles, including Oshizu. Then, one of them grabbed Rito and Haruna, leading him into his accidental position with her. Before Momo can make her escape from the situation they're in, one of the Kyu-Octopuses appeared in front of her.

During the night, Mikan appears to let Lala know it's bath time, but she told she works on something new for an invention. During an unexpected fight at school between Nemesis, Mea and Yami, Lala brought along a robot cat called Nyan-Nyan Copy-kun, under Ryouko's request and shows it to Rito and Haruna. When Rito tripped and bumps into the cat, it electrocuted him and ran away. Then, when Rito sneezes, a clone of himself appears. Lala informs him if he can pull the robotic cat's tail, the effects will reset.
During his chase at the cat, numerous Rito copies kept populating every time he sneezes, and gets into embarrassing situations with other girls, except Momo and Nemesis on the school rooftop. Celine helped Haruna find the cat which is asleep in the bushes, meaning she stopped the copying process. At night, Mikan, Lala, Momo, and Nana at home see numerous Rito clones still present until the effects wear off, Lala says that she didn't know that the copy effect would be worsening. Nana thought that it was the end of Earth. Momo says "If mecha wasn't found the Earth might have ended up covered in Rito-sans. Run wanted one for herself, for Yui's disapproval. Outside the house whole street is covered in hundreds of clones of himself. The episode cuts to black and Rito's sneeze is heard for the last time.Note: Originally, this OVA was set for release on August 4, 2017, but was delayed.
