They set off to find a way to get back home (after Lycidia declares Daisuke to be her loyal minion), but not all is well in UberTokyo. Kerisu, the Evil Overlord of UberTokyo, is having a problem with his fawning groupies, who are on strike, so he sets his eyes on this new batch of girls to be his new groupies.
