While the girls find out they received lots of chocolate from their fans, Johnny is bringing chocolate for Soleil to the Academy with three trucks. Akari asks what are they going to do with all that chocolate, and Hinaki explains that the headmistress is starting up a new event, "Thanks, My Valentine!".

Hinaki explains that it is a party where the idols take all the chocolate they received and show they noticed each one. Yotsuba explains that the headmistress chose him as the head patissier, and he needs to find a way to use all the chocolate. Yotsuba tells the girls that he's going to pile up the chocolate into a tower symbolizing their gratitude for all the chocolate. The girls offer to help with the party.

The friends start running, but soon they are stopped by three girls that ask them if they are from Starlight Academy. They explain that they're going to bring chocolate to Yotsuba. Hinaki asks them if they're his friends, but the girls answer that they were fans of him since he debuted. The girls show them his CD with his autograph, and Akari's friends learn that he was an idol. Yotsuba's fans ask Akari and her friends if they could deliver the chocolate for them.

The friends bring the chocolate to the chef and they tell him everything. Hinaki says that the fans looked sad when they told them that he retired soon after debuting, and Yotsuba explains that he was sad about letting down his fans, but following his dream of being a chef hasn't left him any regrets. In her room, Akari looks sad and explains Sumire that she was thinking how incredible Yotsuba is, and that he worked hard to make his dream come true.

The next day Akari asks Yotsuba if he decided how to build the chocolate tower, and he answers that he did. That night Akari is running and wondering how to show his fans how he's doing. Akari finds Ichigo running and they sit on the fountain. Ichigo asks Akari how she's doing as the Pon Pon Crepe Campaign Girl. Akari answers that since it's almost Valentine's Day their chocolate crepe event is revving up. They start chatting, then Ichigo tells Akari that she, Otome and Sakura are going to be the MCs for the event, and that they had a meeting with Yotsuba. She tells Akari that hearing about the chocolate tower made her all fuzzy and warm. Akari tells Ichigo something about Yotsuba.

It's the day of the "Thanks, My Valentine!" event, and some Starlight Academy girls are looking at the heart-shaped chocolate tower while Ichigo, Sakura and Otome are presenting the event. Yotsuba is cooking pancakes for the friends, and Hinaki is looking at the tower. Kayoko arrives and gives her a new Premium coord, the Bubbles Mermaid Coord. Juri asks her friends if the fans are watching Yotsuba on TV, and Miyabi answers that they're watching for sure. Ichigo introduces their super chef who built the chocolate tower by himself, Yotsuba. Ichigo then asks him if he used to be an idol. He then answers that he used to, surprising all the students. Ichigo asks him how is his new life as a chef, and he answers that he couldn't be happier. He says that he's surrounded by people that enjoy his cooking, and that seeing their smiles encourages him. He says that that is his true happiness. The fans watching the interview say that they're glad. He says that the reason that the reason he was able to make it as a chef was because the support everyone provided when he was an idol. The interview finishes and everyone is clapping.

Johnny asks Yotsuba if he's got any chocolate, and he answers that he's got just a bit. Yotsuba shows Johnny a box full of chocolate, and Johnny admits that he's number one. Yotsuba then says that Naoto has gotten much more, and he shows him a mountain of chocolate. Johnny is shocked. Hinaki and Juri perform Poppin' Bubbles.

After the performance, Akari gives Ichigo some chocolate and thanks her for doing that for Yotsuba. Ichigo replies that she only helped her and gives Akari some chocolate too.
