At the heart of the episode, our protagonist Megumin, accompanied by the delightfully clumsy Yunyun, continues to investigate the strange happenings in the city of Arcanretia. The mystery deepens when the duo discovers that Father Zesta, a leader of the local Axis cult, is embroiled in a scandal that is throwing the town into turmoil. Father Zesta, usually considered a staunch follower of the Church, is associated with the Devil King's army. However, with all the chaos in the city, the public seems more interested in an upcoming election than in solving the city's problems.

As the episode progresses, we meet a newcomer, a demon girl who is apparently after Chomusuke, Megumin's pet/familiar. This confrontation quickly escalates, revealing that she has a connection to Lady Wolbach. Oddly enough, Zesta seems to take a liking to her, adding a touch of humor to the increasingly chaotic situation.

The twist comes as the episode reveals the real culprit behind the city's riots: Zesta himself. In a hilarious, tongue-in-cheek turn of events, it is revealed that while cleaning, Zesta accidentally mistook baking soda for slime, causing the city's hot springs to become dried up and unintentionally wreaked havoc on the city. However, to keep the townspeople's respect, this revelation is being kept under wraps, adding an extra layer of intrigue to the ongoing story.

Meanwhile, Megumin seizes the opportunity to make a big contribution to the city with her explosive magic. In an impressive performance, she creates the largest bath in the entire city, an act that earns her the admiration and gratitude of the townspeople.

At the end of the episode, Megumin and Yunyun make their way to the city of Axel.Both girls are eager to start a new adventure in the city known for its rookie adventures.
