Magical Girls who gained the powers of mermaids while investigating the folklore of Diviners. Although Mitama based the swimsuits off her interest in mermaids, Momoko feels embarrassed to wear it. At Mitama's suggestion, the two promised to be mermaids alone together in the peaceful sea.
The story opens with Momoko and Mitama playing on the beach together, with Momoko chauffeuring Mitama around on a floatie. For their next activity, Mitama says she can give Momoko a turn by tugging her around, but Momoko declines. Mitama tries thinking of alternates, like a sand bath, beach tag, splash fights...while Momoko is happy to see Mitama having a good time, she knows they're not here to goof off. They sober up, reflecting on how they got here...
Now we go back to where it all began - in the Coordinator's office, with just Mitama and Momoko present. Mitama explains there's an upcoming event called "The Beachside Perfect Pair Contest." The grand prize is a scallop BBQ on the beach, along with what's really caught Mitama's eye - a ticket to a special event called Candy World. Mitama wants to win the prize as a gift to Mikage, and she wants Momoko to help her get it. Momoko asks about Kanagi, but she's busy and can't make the contest. Mitama adds that there's a third element of the grand prize - a giant stuffed doll of Mocha Bunny, a character that Rena and Kaede adore.
Momoko still hems and haws - Mitama's usual game plan would be to convince other magical girls to enter the contest for her. Mitama confesses she considered doing that, but given how she's gone out of her way to keep Mikage out of KMU, she doesn't want to make KMU members go to such lengths for the sake of someone who isn't part of it. After a bit more hesitance, Momoko agrees, deciding she wants to get the stuffed rabbit for Kaede and Rena. And the very instant Momoko agrees, Mitama drags her away on a shopping trip.
Their first stop is the beach boutique, even though they both already have swimsuits. Mitama remarks she wants to go to the beach and play on the morning of the contest - a beach trip would be a waste if they didn't make the most of it, after all. As they look around, various cute patterns and styles subtly catch Momoko's eye, but she doesn't fess up to it. Mitama plays along, but in thinking to herself, reveals she of course knows all these sides to Momoko - she's been adjusting her, after all. Still, it's one thing to see these memories and thoughts while adjusting, and a whole other thing to see this side of her in person - Mitama savors the sight.
In they end, they don't buy anything; Mitama says given their limited funds, they need to choose thoughtfully and not on a whim. Momoko admits Mitama is actually pretty good at adhering to that philosophy. This seems to remind Momoko that she needs to pick up some sunscreen. Her preferred brand is in another shop, and since Mitama also has something else she needs to buy, the two go separate ways for now. We cut to Mitama buying some kind of ingredients - we don't know what, but she just thinks to herself that she finds scallops fairly plain, so she's glad to have an alternative. But as she walks out, she bumps straight into the one person she doesn't want to see: Mikage.
Mikage's first move, of course, is to ask what Mitama's up to, and Mitama stalls for an excuse - she doesn't want to even hint that she's going to the beach, which would otherwise risk blowing open the whole surprise to Mikage. She manages to explain she was just picking up ingredients, and quickly turns the question back onto Mikage. Mikage says she's on a recon mission - scouting the candy store for new goods! She soon realizes that she's keeping Sudachi waiting, and scampers off to meet her. Shortly after, Momoko arrives, revealing she was held up by running into Rena and Kaede herself. Just like Mitama, she had to wing some excuse for why she was out there. Momoko asks Mitama what swimsuit she bought, only for Mitama to say she didn't get one - their little shopping trip had a different aim in mind...
After an adjustment session, Momoko opens her eyes to find her and Mitama in new swimsuits - much to her shock, Momoko's is tailored exactly to her tastes. Momoko gets flustered (but is secretly pleased, too), and Mitama praises her for how cute she looks. She can't help but tease Momoko, she says - her reactions are so sincere, so it's worth teasing her just to see them. But that doesn't mean she was lying, through - the swimsuit does look good on Momoko. And she looks positively adorable whenever she's shy. Momoko berates her, Mitama giggles, and with that, the act ends on Mitama's voiced line saying she's nervous - but more than anything, excited for what's to come.
The next part takes us back to the day of the contest, after Mitama and Momoko played around in the intro of the story. Mitama talks about how much they swam, for Momoko to say that what Mitama did was float - poor Momoko was the one who did all the swimming! Mitama teases Momoko a bit, but conveys her gratitude to Momoko for being a good sport about it. The conversation leads Momoko to wonder what the Beachside Perfect Pair contest is about - unfortunately, it's not just participants standing around being cute. Instead, Mitama explains they're tasked to tell a story about a memory they both share of the beach - and looking good while doing it. Essentially, the pairs need to have good chemistry and be in sync when they perform. This is part of why Mitama prepared new swimsuits for them; their outfit and accessories are...coordinated, we should say.
Momoko asks if playing around earlier was for the contest, giving them a memory of the beach they could perform together, but Mitama has a different plan: She'll tell the story of the time she, Kyoko, and the others washed up on a deserted island. Momoko remembers that time, too - she talks about how worried sick she and the others were about Mitama and their friends. While Mitama's group did contact the others ASAP, Momoko couldn't help but worry until she saw for herself that her friends were safe and sound. Mitama seems a bit taken aback and apologizes for worrying Momoko so much.
Momoko, then, wonders if the story will actually be good for the contest - it's really Mitama's memory, not one they both share. Still, it's the most interesting story they've got, and Mitama figures Momoko can just cut in with her side of the story, talking about how worried she was. That settled, Mitama gets Momoko back into more fun and games, and Momoko realizes they've really been getting closer lately - and thinks that if Rena, Kaede, or Mikage saw them having so much fun together...well, they'd be furious for being left out.
Not long after that, Mitama and Momoko head to the contest site, encountering a Witch on the beach enthralling various beachgoers. They team up to make quick work of her - thanks to Mitama making some "little changes" while adjusting Momoko into the new swimsuit. Momoko, asks what she means by "little," but revealing anything more would be blowing open trade secrets, Mitama says. She then giggles, remarking it's the very first time she's ever teamed up with someone to fight a Witch. But before they can do anything else, they, of course, run straight into Rena, Kaede, and Mikage!
They all get into the "what are YOU doing here?!" conversation - Mikage, a trifle suspiciously, says the three of them were tracking down the Witch that Momoko and Mitama just fought, and then blows up on Mitama for being so mean for lying to Mikage. Basically, Mitama (not wanting Mikage to ever go to the beach alone) once told her a story that when beautiful girls go swimming, the god of the sea gets jealous of their beauty and turns them into sea foam, spooking Mikage from ever wanting to swim in the ocean - Rena and Kaede had been the ones to clear things up for her.
Momoko chuckles to herself about this, but Rena and Kaede then turn on Momoko for taking a beach trip without telling the two of them - it clearly wounds them deeply. Mitama and Momoko put their heads together and agree it's time to fess up about everything. They explain the whole story. The trio is still bitter about how much fun the two of them were having, pulling each other around on the floats, playing beach tag...which Momoko realizes is extremely specific and realizes the three of them were stalking them both. Well, yes - but Rena says it's because they all saw how suspicious and cagey Momoko and Mitama had been acting. Before they can get into it, though, an announcer for the contest gives the last call for entrants, and Mitama and Momoko call things off so they can enter the contest in time.
And they win, bringing down the house with roaring laughter and applause. But it wasn't through the deserted island story - it was simply by relaying all of the events of this side story so far. Momoko and Mitama are over the moon, while the other three feel sheepish - in the end, though, all's well that ends well, so they all just agree to chalk it up to a misunderstanding and call it water under the bridge.
Rena, though, announces that the giant stuffed bunny prize is all hers! Kaede protests, saying it was for them both, but Rena says she'll show it to Kaede whenever she asks. Mikage thinks Rena is so awesome for being so assertive, prompting Mitama to tell her not to use Rena as a role model.
They finish their beach trip with the all-you-can-eat scallop BBQ, accompanied by Mitama's homemade sausage that terrifies the girls (which is what Mitama had been shopping for earlier in the story). They feast away, and Momoko and Mitama present the prizes to their loved ones - Rena and Kaede get the stuffed bunny, and Mikage gets the tickets to Candy World, and instantly invites Mitama to join her, making Mitama's heart melt.
With things cooled off, apologies go around from Rena, Kaede, and Mikage for stalking the duo. But Rena adds that she wants no more secrets between Momoko and her and Kaede. Kaede agrees, saying that while the gesture was nice, it broke her heart to see Momoko keeping things secret from them. Momoko vows not to do it again.
Meanwhile, Mikage demands the same from Mitama, only for Mitama to say "Not even for surprises?" Mikage amends her request to keep things secret as much as possible. Seeing Mitama so deftly handle her little sister makes Momoko realize that Mitama's relationship with her sister must be why she's so good with the other magical girls in Kamihama. She never would have seen it if she hadn't entered the contest, and smiles to herself. When Kaede and Rena ask what Momoko is grinning about, Momoko says she's happy she entered the contest. In her voiced line, she says while things certainly didn't go the way she expected...she's glad they did.
So that should wrap things up, right? All the big conflicts are settled, everyone got a nice conclusion to their story...but little do they know, there’s still one more chance encounter up ahead.
In part 3, after eating so much salty food, Mikage wants something sweet to drink. Mitama worries about letting Mikage go out on her own, since Mitama and Momoko are cleaning up the BBQ and can't accompany her, but Rena and Kaede offer to take Mikage to the beach house. The three of them scurry off, having become fast friends, which, at Momoko's prompting, makes Mitama realize she's feeling lonely now that Mikage's run off and made more friends of her own. To Momoko, she really does seem like a typical teenage girl now, instead of her usual self (but Mitama insists she's always a typical peppy teenage girl).
They finish cleaning up, but the three girls still haven't returned... They're about to visit the cafe to see if things are okay, only for someone to call out to Mitama. To Mitama's horror, it's the girl from Mizuna Academy whom she accidentally shoved down the stairs.
Mitama freezes up and zones out for some time until Momoko jars her out of it, thinking Mitama may have heatstroke or something, and wanting to take her someplace to rest. Mitama, though, haltingly explains the truth, that she knocked the girl down the stairs; it seems to be the very first time Momoko's heard of it.
The confession confirms the Mizuna girl's suspicion, and she demands the truth. She explains she spotted Mitama at the contest, and felt driven to confront her - while every story in Mizuna and beyond says Mitama deliberately pushed her, the girl isn't so convinced. She's certainly heard one side of the story - but wants to hear the other. She has the feeling it was all an accident, and wants Mitama to confirm either way. Mitama does not take well to this. She knows full well that people don't really want to hear the truth - people only believe what they want to believe.
A crowd has gathered in the meantime, muttering about the rumors (the story reminds us that the incident involving the girl and Mitama was published in a citywide magazine). People start denigrating Mitama, certain she's causing yet more trouble. Mitama freezes up, worrying about what will happen if Mikage sees this...
But Momoko steps up to her defense, telling the crowd how rude it is to make judgments of people you don't know, and orders them to step off. While Momoko doesn't know what went down back then, she can assure them all that Mitama would never hurt someone on purpose. The crowd soon disperses, and Mitama thinks to herself, well - she's not the kind of person who would deliberately hurt people anymore...all because she has someone who believes in her now and will defend her.
In a soliloquy, Mitama realizes to herself that all this time, she's thought that being with Momoko had been so easy because Momoko didn't know the truth, didn't know the past - but now it's clicked for Mitama that it's more than that. Momoko is someone who is honest and kind at heart - someone who gets angry at injustices, and strives to set things right. Yes, even if Mitama is the one doing the wrong thing. Kanagi, she thinks, is the kind of person who will just agree with her and stand by her decisions no matter what she does. Momoko, on the other hand, will stop Mitama, scold her a bit, and help her see the light.
With the crowd gone, the Mizuna girl apologizes - she was so caught up in her goal that she didn't realize what was happening around them until it was too late. She knows now that Mitama didn't push her - that Mitama would not hurt others deliberately. And knowing that, she now wants to help clear up Mitama's cratered reputation.
Mitama, however, says it's too late - as she alluded to before, the people who denounced her won't change their minds. Digging things up again will only make things worse, so she asks the girl to just leave things be. The girl notes that Mitama has changed a lot. Mitama says she doesn't have to worry about fixing things anymore - because now she has someone who believes in her.
Mikage, Kaede, and Rena finally return, none the wiser - there was a massive line at the beach house due to a special treat: candy ramune! While they were waiting, Kaede brought up how her garden produced a surplus of watermelons, and offered the Yakumo sisters to take a load off her hands, so Mikage says they three of them will be heading to Kaede's house next. There's no point in them staying at the beach, after all - the three of them didn't bring their swimsuits! But Rena asks Mitama and Momoko to have a fun time at the beach together. Kaede agrees, saying they are officially the beachside perfect pair, after all. Mitama says she'll borrow Momoko from Kaede and Rena for a bit, and Mikage agrees she'll let Momoko borrow Mitama in turn - but just this once!
Alone together, Momoko and Mitama need to use their time to the fullest, and the first thing they do is have some ice cream together. Mitama wants to feed Momoko, which makes Momoko flustered, all but certain that Mitama is buttering her up for something later...and when Mitama lays on the guilt trip, Momoko knows what Mitama's doing there, too - teasing her because she knows Momoko is too embarrassed to thank her out loud. So Momoko thanks her, and takes Mitama's bite. With dessert settled, Mitama says she'll take Momoko out some more - her treat, Momoko asks? Yes, Mitama says - and her investment as well.
They banter around a bit, but deep down, Mitama is grateful that even though Momoko knows her past, she's still treating her the same as ever. Mitama was sure the only person who understood her was Kanagi, and that no one else was capable of doing so. Truth be told, she thinks Momoko can't ever really fully understand her suffering - but that's precisely why she cherishes Momoko so much. She knows that Momoko will always be there for her. Even if Mitama herself makes mistakes, Momoko will be there to help her make things right. This realization is one she'll cherish and keep in her heart forever.
Out loud, though, Mitama says now that they've deepened their bond, what kinds of things can she convince Momoko to do with her... A treasure hunt, perhaps! To this, Momoko says she'll go out to many places Mitama...but not to a deserted island. And Mitama goes like "oh, so you do want to go out with me after all", Momoko wonders if she's made a terrible mistake, and Mitama has a good laugh - and we end with Mitama's voice line, saying she can't wait to visit the beach with Momoko again.
