In order of appearance:
This is the guardian's first visit to this year's New Year Festival. They play a festival game, which Lulu joins in and impresses everyone with her skills. An Easter worker calls Lulu away from the festival, and informs her that Ikuto has stolen his violin away from the site. Lulu later finds Ikuto, with his violin over his shoulder, struggling to walk from the previous escape. Ikuto convinces her not to tell that she saw him, and she lets him leave. Lulu finds two festival performers, Kiko and Rin, who have lost their self-confidence. Lulu makes their Heart's eggs into Wishing eggs, causing them to Character Transform to Happy Dream 1 and 2. She stands behind a tree while all of the guardians Character Transform, except for Nagihiko, who stands nearby. After the guardians blocked the performers' attacks, Amu changes the Wishing Eggs back into Heart's Eggs. After that, everyone, except for Lulu who had left, finishes watching the parade. Amu returns home and gets ready to go to bed. When she goes to bed, she is surprised to see Ikuto deep asleep beside her, and that is where the episode ends with Amu screaming in shock.
