Emilia decides to do just that for Natsuki Subaru, causing the others to pity the boy much to Emilia's confusion.

In Home Economics, Albedo is thrilled that Valentine's Day is coming and prepares to make homemade chocolates for her love. She is joined by Petelgeuse who shouts his own encouragement telling her to put her love in her chocolates. The Archbishop then begins to instruct the Overseer Guardian on how to make chocolate. He asks what kind Albedo would like to make. Albedo muses that she would like to make dark bitter chocolate for Ainz Ooal Gown, as it reflects his maturity.

Rem asks Darkness if she is planning on giving any chocolates to Kazuma, causing the masochist to be flustered. She tries to explain Kazuma is just a fellow party member, but the other girls think that's not all. Matheus Johan Weiss yearns to receive some chocolate to his fellow battalion mates: Rhiner Neumann, Vooren Grantz, and Wilibald Koenig. He can't seem to remember when the last time he had any chocolate and its ecstatic of the day when girls give chocolates to guy. Koenig manages to get the captain's attention, and his friends help explain that girls on Valentine's Day only give to people they like. But Weiss mishears thinks that means the girls' affection is a bonus, putting the rest of the guys at a loss. Neumann gives it a shot to explain to the dunce of how Valentine's Day works. Though he tells the captain that he will get to asks girls for chocolate, however, he must be polite. Neumann seeing Kazuma walking by calls him over to provide a reference and asks if he wanted chocolate from a girl what did he say? Kazuma thinking, then shows both hands out, bows and shouts "Give Me Choco!". Kazuma says to keep bowing and asking and eventually, Weiss will get all the chocolate he wants. Weiss thanks Kazuma, but the latter says there is no need and walks away as he stifles a laugh. The three soldiers know that's not true but get a silent laugh at watching Weiss drool and stupidity. As if on time, Darkness, Rem, and Shalltear come down the hallway giving Weiss an opportunity to demonstrate Kazuma's advice for real. He keeps walking towards them in a zombie-like manner causing Rem to use [Al Huma] knocking Weiss with a bunch of crystal shards.

Tanya and Subaru soon come to the scene of Weiss kneeling on the ground in defeat. Tanya asks what's wrong only for Weiss to try again, but Tanya realizes someone tricked Weiss. Back at Home Economics, Albedo is busy making chocolate with Petelgeuse. Sebas Tian comes across the two and asks what they are doing, for Albedo to explain they are making chocolate for Ainz. Though finding it to be a wonderful idea he asks who Petelgeuse is, only for the Archbishop to introduce himself in an exaggerated manner. The butler is not impressed and registers the man as a trespasser and throws the man out the window. Crashing outside the school gates, Petelgeuse is happy as he completed his mission. Albedo was still happy for the help of Petelgeuse, just as Subaru comes in and greets his classmate. Albedo shows her work, a chocolate confection that eerily resembles Petelgeuse's face. Subaru disturbed by the image, tries to give some positive reinforcement for her work.

The next scenes show the students from Class 1 and Class exchanging chocolates with their friends. Other characters are shown buying chocolates and giving them to their loved ones. At the end, Ainz received multiple chocolates from Albedo, Shalltear, Mare Bello Fiore, and Aura Bella Fiora. Though happy of the gifts, he realizes he can't eat any of it.
