The girls greet the priestess but the priestess watches over Raku as he trips over a banana peel, gets poop on his forehead from a bird, and falls down the stairs.
The priestess warns the girls that Raku is in danger from bad luck.The priestess tell the girls to get rid of his bad luck by knocking him on the New Year's Bell which the girls decline on doing believing that Raku would end up getting hurt. The priestess tell the girls different methods of sticking an exorcism charm on Raku's butt to release the bad spirits in him or hugging him for 1 minute due to the shrine maiden uniforms they wore having some purification power on them. Chitoge and Kosaki do these tasks but fail to complete them.
The last method the priestess offers them is to have Raku drink holy water by administering it mouth-to-mouth. All the girls decide to do this task and run toward Raku but Raku becomes afraid of the situation and runs away from them. As Raku runs away from them, he gets hit by the New Year's Bell and is released from his bad luck. The girls explain their reasons of doing the weird tasks toward him which Raku understands and appreciates. As all of them leave the shrine, the priestess notices that Raku will always have bad luck with women.
