Makoto Kikuchi is a hit with female fans due to her handsome and Prince-like looks. While Makoto appreciates the fame, she wishes fans admire her as a girl and not a boy. After appearing on talk show along with Jupiter, Makoto almost has a fight with Tōma, who the latter believes in the lies Kuroi tells him until the Producer intervenes. However, Kuroi appears himself who not only mocks 765 Pro but makes fun on Makoto and her tomboyish looks. To let out her anger, Makoto goes on a "date" with the Producer at an Amusement Park where she reveals because her father raise her as a boy, she never experience doing girly things so she became an idol to shed her tomboy image to become a princess. When a group of thugs start harassing two girls, Makoto goes to stop them only for the girls, who are Makoto fans, go happy with excitement upon meeting their idol and ignoring the thugs. Angry of being ignored, one of the thugs tries to punch Makoto only to hit the Producer instead which attracts the attention of more Makoto fangirls, forcing the thugs to leave. After recovering from his injuries, the Producer teaches Makoto that her dreams of being a princess is great but she is also fulling the dreams of her fangirls who wishes to meet a prince as well and as a gift, they ride the Merry-go-round with the Producer treating her as a princess. Appreciating to act like a girl for a day, Makoto tells the Producer she will continue with her Prince image for her fans and hopes one day to meet her Prince Charming who will finally treat her as the Princess she is.
