Asta is tired and hungry after a long day of training. When he lifts his head, he sees Finral Roulacase sitting across from him. Finral tells Asta that he is cursed, shocking Asta. Noelle Silva appears out of nowhere and corrects Finral, saying that being a womanizing flirt is not actually a curse.
Finral wants to train resisting his womanizing habits, so he invites Asta and Luck Voltia on another group date. Finral's plan is to dive right in by spending time with multiple pretty girls and not flirt with any of them. Asta invited Rebecca Scarlet to be his date. Also at the table was Karen Lapis, who just wanted to get married to any man, not caring about their character, and Eliza Zakkeroni, who only came because turning down the invitation seemed rude and just wants to go home so she can read.
Noelle Silva and Secre Swallowtail follow their squadmates and take jobs as waitresses at the tavern. Noelle, scared that she might lose Asta to another woman, grips a pillar hard enough to crack it, which the tavern owner scolds her for. Secre uses her Sealing Magic to fix the cracks. Noelle asks Secre why she even came, to which Secre responds "just because". She then notices how cute Secre looks in the waitress uniform and Noelle tells Secre that she will handle Asta's table herself while she handles all the other tables.
Back at Asta's table, while Asta chats with Rebecca about the recent accusations of treason against him, Luck expresses his wish to fight Karen, which Karen thinks is code for something. Meanwhile, Finral does his best to act nonchalant and disinterested in Eliza.
Finral begins to feel that his anti-womanizer training is working, but feels bad for making the girls waste their evening. Eliza suddenly declares Finral to be the perfect man for her, greatly shocking him.
Also at the tavern, Sekke Bronzazza and his two friends, Aphro and Phati, are on group date with Rebecca's friends, Erika Sitate and Helene Barbary, and a third woman. Sekke tells lies about his involvement in resolving the elves' attack and the Magic Knights' possession. The girls are uninterested though.
Noelle passes by their table and feels like Sekke seems familiar, but she cannot quite place him. She figures it out after hearing his signature laugh. Sekke calls Noelle over and asks her for a round of drinks. Noelle responds by blasting water in his face.
As Secre is taking a big order, the tavern owner notes that she is doing a great job and more than makes up for Noelle being a terrible waitress. As she is putting down drinks, Secre notices Langris Vaude and Finesse Calmreich sitting in disguises at one table and are watching Finral.
In a private room upstairs, Yami Sukehiro, Magna Swing, and Gordon Agrippa are on a group date with Charlotte Roselei, Sol Marron, and Puli Angel. The Blue Roses are trying to help Charlotte attract Yami. Though, the Black Bulls are only present because the Blue Roses agreed to pick up the bill.
Sol is rapidly gorging herself and complaining about how she might lose Charlotte to a man. Magna tells her that she will give herself indigestion. After a trade of insults, Sol challenges Magna to an eating contest, which he agrees to.
Charlotte questions her outfit, but reminds herself to have faith in Puli, who as it turns out, often gave romantic advice to her fellow Knights.
During an emergency meeting in the bathroom, Puli advises Charlotte to serve a plate for Yami, to listen attentively, and most importantly, to touch him nonchalantly. Yami coincidentally does these things for Charlotte. When Charlotte and Yami accidentally touch hands, Charlotte freaks out, runs away screaming, and jumps out of the window.
She then runs back into the tavern and trips over the hem of her dress. Finral catches her and almost gives in to his bad habits. Instead, he declares that his heart belongs to someone else. Charlotte is embarrassed at Yami seeing her like that and throws Finral down.
Karen ditches Luck and realizes that she should have higher standards than just wanting to marry any guy. Eliza is disenchanted and notes that her only perfect guy is the fictional one in her favorite book.
Afterward, the Black Bulls and Blue Roses all sit down at a table. Rebecca whispers to Noelle that she should be more upfront with Asta, as the boy is not too bright. After Yami demonstrates his obliviousness to Charlotte's feelings, Puli uses her Magic to reposition Charlotte's chair next to Yami's. Yami and Charlotte then share a toast to their next six months of training.
