At Café Nagi Shoichi Kusanagi discovers the true identity of Blue Angel is Aoi Zaizen, the sister-in law of SOL Technologies security manager, Akira Zaizen. Yusaku Fujiki realizes Aoi is a student of Den City High School and his classmate. Shoichi suggests that he meet her, so that he can get a lead on Akira regarding Yusaku's stolen memories and his brother's whereabouts. He starts teasing Yusaku, saying that talking to Aoi would be impossible for him. Ai asks why that is and Shoichi asks if Ai can imagine Yusaku talking to a woman. Ai agrees that it is impossible, which Shoichi accredits to Yusaku's poor social skills. Yusaku maintains a deadpan expression as he is teased.
The next day at school Ai asks Yusaku if he likes picking on girls, to which Yusaku angrily replies that he does not. Ai remarks that at school everybody dresses in uniform, making it difficult to tell them apart. Yusaku tells him to hurry up and find her. Ai scans every area until he finally spots Aoi walking. Yusaku then follows her and sees her entering the Duel Club.
Naoki Shima catches up with Yusaku, who asks to be reminded who he is. Unhappy about Yusaku forgetting his name, Naoki angrily reintroduces himself and Yusaku agrees that they are classmates. Naoki notices Yusaku's Duel Disk and asks if he came to join the Duel Club. Yusaku says "yes", that this is the room for Duel Club. Naoki tells him to not to be dumb and that this place is not for losers, who have no interest in LINK VRAINS. The club president, Hosoda, opens the door and scolds Naoki for making so much noise and welcomes Yusaku to join, saying that new applicants are always welcome. Yusaku nervously tries to say that he is not joining, until Ai replies on his behalf, thanking Hosoda, much to Yusaku's dismay.
Yusaku introduces himself as a freshman to other members of the Duel Club, who in return introduce themselves to Yusaku, inculding the club president, Hosoda, second years, Sato and Tanaka, freshman, Suzuki, and Aoi. Sato shows him his Duel Disk, which Yusaku pretends to be interested in, saying that this is the latest Duel Disk, which has AI program and gives you support during Duels. Aoi remarks that Yusaku knows everything. He tells her that it was Naoki who bragged about it earlier. Naoki protests, saying that Aoi's brother is a big shot at SOL Technology and he provided all the members of Duel Club with latest Duel Disk model. Aoi gets angry and frightens Naoki with a stern glare. Ai greets the AI programming in Aoi's Duel Disk, which returns a greeting, but Ai is disappointed by its lack of social skills. Aoi notices Ai which causes him to panic and return back to normal. She also notices Yusaku has a card-loading Duel Disk model, the same as Playmaker. Yusaku gives her a stern look. Naoki suspects that Yusaku must be copying Playmaker and wonders why Playmaker using the old card-loading model. Aoi asks to see Yusaku's Deck, but is scolded by Hosada, who considers the question to be rude. However Yusaku is okay with it and politely hands his dummy Deck to her. After looking through the cards, Aoi thanks him and is about to hand the Deck back, but it is snatched by Naoki, who looks through it and calls it a lame old-school Deck. He is scolded by Hosoda, who gets him to apologize for insulting Yusaku's Deck. Naoki grimly returns the Deck, as he apologizes. Yusaku says it is fine and agrees with what Naoki had said. Hosada gives lessons about Master and Speed Duels, during which Ai commends Yusaku for showing a dummy deck, but Yusaku hushes him, since the lesson is ongoing.
