Kaede Akino is attacked by a witch, but is rescued by "the magical girl born from Halloween", Karin Misono. Karin defeats the witch with a bag of gravel charged with magical energy. Afterward, Kaede tells Karin she doesn't feel very Halloween like. When Karin asks why, Kaede says that Halloween is coming up, but she doesn't feel like there's an event going on. Kaede says she didn't mean it in a bad way, but Karin says she can only hear it that way. Karin narrates that ever since she tried to save her grandmother by pretending to be a Phantom Thief manga heroine, she's been fighting as the magical girl born from Halloween. However, she admits she doesn't feel like anything special since she keeps saying that all the time.
Karin tries not to worry about it, but keeps thinking about what Kaede says. One day she asks Alina Gray if she seems like a Halloween magical girl. Alina says that she thinks Karin is a manga artsit that's bad at art, and she's an annoying magical girl that mentions Halloween every day. Alina then lapses into silence, no matter how much Karin tries to get her attention. Karin wonders what she should do to make herself seem more Halloween. Later, while Karin is in her room, her grandmother comes in. She wants to know if Karin can help perform a play at a children's group meeting for their Halloween event. Karin realizes that this is what she was looking for and quickly agrees.
The next day, Karin writes a script for the play while Alina makes her art. Karin exclaims her script is done, though Alina says her art isn't. Alina quickly realizes that Karin is trying to do something special on Halloween. She claims it's a bit last minute, but Karin should be alright. Alina tries to go home, but Karin explains her story:
On the night of Halloween, a devil women and her cow and wolf demons appear in a village and steal life energy from victims. A knight came to rescue them, but found himself in peril. Then the magical girl born from Halloween, "Magical Karin" appears and saves everyone. Alina says it's a copy of the manga Karin likes so much. Karin claims it's a homage. Alina tells Karin to do her best, but warns her that gathering people might be hard work. Karin realizes she didn't think of that and decides to ask for Kaede's help.
Karin meets Kaede, Rena Minami, and Momoko Togame. Karin says she made a decision after Kaede said she wan't Halloween like. Rena tells Kaede there's some things you shouldn't say even if they're true. Momoko scolds Rena. Karin then explains about the play, and invites the girls to help her. However, Kaede had plans to visit a super reptile exhibit with her family. Momoko and Rena say they're going to a live concert to see the idols "Ha--chuun" and "Yuripon". The girls apologize, but promise to help with stage setting.
Karin suddenly finds she's out of people to invite. That evening at her house, she tells her grandmother preparations are going smoothly. Her grandmother says it doesn't have to be that fancy since the audience will just be small kids who aren't even in elementary school. Karin thinks about inviting Alina, but figures it's impossible. Shen then thinks of inviting Yachiyo Nanami, but feels that after Yachiyo lectured her it would be really awkward.
While thinking about what to do, Karin comes across Sasara Minagi. Sasara recognizes Karin as a magical girl by her ring and asks what's wrong. Karin says it's not about defeating anything, but Sasara says she can leave it to her, the "magical knight, Sasara Minagi". Karin suddenly realizes Sasara is who she was looking for and asks her to be the knight for her play. Sasara says that as a knight she needs to help people out, and accepts. When Karin tells her she still needs other rolls, Sasara says she knows who could play the cow.
Sasara calls Asuka Tatsuki and Felicia Mitsuki. It's revealed this story takes place after Felicia became Yachiyo's exclusive mercenary. Sasara introduces them to Karin and explains the situation. Felicia eagerly says she'll play the role of the cow, and Karin agrees she's a perfect match. Asuka asks why she was brought along since she has no reason to be a cow. Sasara points out her...physical feastures.
Asuka says Sasara should be ashamed for picking someone based on that. Sasara says she just thought Karin should have more people to choose from. Asuka refuses to be the cow, so Felicia gets the part. Karin says she's still looking for a wolf and a female demon. Felicia says she knows a demon at her place. The girls resolve to meet again tomorrow. Asuka wonders if she came just to be humiliated.
Felicia's demon turns out to be Yachiyo, who Karin and Felicia meet at her house. Yachiyo says it's been awhile since she last met Karin. Karin says it's in the past, but Yachiyo says she's glad Karin is doing well. Yachiyo says she heard about the Halloween play, but asks Felicia who she's calling a demon. Felicia says Yachiyo is a demon because she makes her go to school, do homework, and set times for her to play games. Iroha Tamaki appears and insits Yachiyo is doing it for Felicia's sake. Felicia says Yachiyo should just let her play video games. Tsuruno Yui says Felicia is like a younger sister. Yachiyo asks Karin why she decided to do a play.
After explaining, Yachiyo says she understands because she was raised in her house by her grandmother for a long time. Iroha and Tsuruno offer to help as well. Yachiyo says that since Felicia will be her cow servant, she should prepare herself. Later, Karin tells her grandmother that she has a good feeling about the play, and her grandmother says it sounds like Karin is having fun. At the clubroom, Karin tells Alina she's found all the actors except a wolf. Alina asks about the costume designs Karin will use and offers to make them herself.
The roles have been determined: Momoko, Rena and Kaede are the stage crew, Sasara is the knight, Yachiyo is the demon, Felicia is the cow servant, and Karin is the protagonist. Karin says the event will be called "Magical Halloween Theatre". Yachiyo asks what Karin has to do next. Karin still has to find someone to play the wolf. Sasara points out Karin will need costumes, sound, lighting and stagehands. Yachiyo says Karin needs a schedule and offers to plan out one for Karin.
Karin says she doesn't really get all this stuff, so asks Yachiyo and Sasara to do it while she looks for someone to play the wolf. Rena, Momoko and Kaede make the stage settings, with Kaede turning out to be better at it than Rena. Felicia, Yachiyo, and Sasara practice their roles, with Iroha as a helpless victim. After some practice, Yachiyo says they should keep trying to memorize the script. Tsuruno and Iroha decide to go look for stagehands. Sasara says that Asuka can help. All this time, Karin looks for her wolf.
At the art club, Alina asks what Karin's doing. She asks who's directing the performance and Karin says she doesn't know. Alina then asks who's managing the schedule and Karin says Yachiyo is. Alina asks again what Karin's doing, and Karin says she's looking for a wolf. Alina then shows Karin the cow and wolf designs she made before ripping them apart. Alina says she won't doing anything for foolish girl who doesn't even know whose work the play is and who is doing what. Alina storms off, while Karin thinks she doesn't understand.
