Lagrange Point is Marginal#4’s senior idol unit. They currently have everybody in the entertainment industry running after them.
Having just returned from their highly successful world tour, their manager Satsuki Chang finally lets them have their first day off in a long time.
Meanwhile, the high school the Marginal#4 boys attend is getting closer to its yearly cultural festival and Atom declares that their club will take part! However, Atom and Rui are completely at odds when it comes to deciding what their booth will be!!
The Marginal#4 boys are asked to take part in a magazine column that shows photographs of the bedrooms of idols. Each of the boys bring photos of their rooms that are overflowing with personality. However, the pictures getting the most attention from the other boys are surprising those of Rui’s room! Amidst the simple, modern interior, there is a somewhat strange stuffed toy. Atom, L and R can’t stop asking questions about this seemingly odd pair.
Marginal#4 are steadily increasing their idol activities, but a tabloid magazine picks up the ‘scoop’ that claims Atom has a girlfriend! Rui, L, and R just can’t believe that such a thing could be true. Just as Marginal#4 finds themselves in the biggest problem since their formation, Magi4’s kouhai group, Unicorn Jr, appears before them…!?
L and R have a dream that they release a genie from a lamp. The twins often see the same dreams, however this time the two ask the genie different wishes. This causes some awkwardness between them.
L has always used his innate talent to smartly go about roles and TV appearances. However, R starts to raise objections…
Finally there’s a MARGINAL#4 drama! And Atom and Rui are playing the lead roles in it. Of course, L and R are being challenged by Lagrange Point, Unicorn Jr and Pythagoras Production in a dark suspense mystery. They show a different self to their usual image. Will they be able to keep it up until the end?
On his way to the Pythagoras Production Training Camp, R reflects on what happened at the time of Marginal#4’s formation. The 4 of them have now formed strong bonds, but at the time of their formation, the members were all either working as solo performers or belonged to other units. They were not particularly positive about being put together as Marginal#4. What happened to make them to work so hard for their new unit?
Heading towards the joint concert at the Ryuseikan, the lessons at the training camp are coming to an end. Thanks to the suggestion by Shy and Kira that they need to head out their comfort zones in order to succeed as a unit, the group all undergo a shuffling. As the members are put into the new teams, their dance teacher ends up collapsing. The reshuffled units put something together to try to cheer up their teacher.
Marginal#4 are back from their training camp and boy have they grown! However, Rui, L, and R hear from Tsubasa that Atom may be quitting the group. The members are torn between their feelings of wanting to support him and the fear they they would no longer be able to perform as Marginal#4. On top of that, R and L catch Rui secretly emailing a certain place…
We have come to the end of the rehearsals for Pythagoras Production’s Big Bang Fes, which is just a few days away! Atom realizes that he accidentally sent the wrong CD to be sent into space! Atom feels responsible for failing to ‘send our kiss to space’ and heads to the island of Tanegashima, where the rocket will be launched. He manages to hand over the right CD, but after that….!! As time inches closer towards the concert, Rui suggests something that will be the biggest gamble in Pythagoras Production’s history!!
