In order of appearance:
Amu and Rima come across a poster, much to Amu's surprise, announcing an upcoming performance by Nadeshiko just as Nagihiko comes along and is dragged into a predicament. Amu pleaded to him that she wants to see Nadeshiko. The three of them go to the stage where the perfomance is going to be held and Amu asks to see Nadeshiko. Nagihiko worries and quickly changes into Nadeshiko, surprising both girls. The charas meet again and KusuKusu almost spills the beans by saying, "Long time no see, Temari!" After many more wardrobe changes, a Character Change, and Rima's teasing, they all take a walk as Nadeshiko explains that she has missed Amu and always thinks of her. To interrupt this "reunion" a soccer ball is taken over by an X-Egg and Amu and Nadeshiko transform into Amulet Heart and Yamato Maihime. Nadeshiko performs new attacks, "Robe of Feathers" and "Dance of the Cherry Blossoms." She surprises the X-Egg and catches it. Amu uses Open Heart to purify it. In the end, Nadeshiko explains that she found her true dance and performs on stage. Later at school, Rima once again gives Nagihiko a hard time, saying that the only reason he keeps on being Nadeshiko is not to please Amu, but that he enjoys "cross-dressing." The two come to terms as Rima cutely pronounces his name as Na-gi-hi-ko and asks him to do her some favors in exchange for her keeping his secret for him. The first favor was to treat her to a parfait after school.
