Part 1Edit

While still on vacation, Grandma Hina calls to inform Haruka of Keitaro’s “treasured items” being hidden in the Annex, however, Mitsune intercepts the call and mishears the message. Thinking that there is treasure hidden in the apartments and that Keitaro knows where it is (or at least has the treasure map on his person) the Hinata girls start making various attempts to see Keitaro naked.

Part 2Edit

Told that he and the Hinata girls are to take care of a group of guests that will arrive at Hinata House with permission from Hina, Keitaro gets a lesson in how to run an Inn for a group of people who used to stay at the Hinata Inn years previously.
However, all is not what they seem; for some of these customers are here for more than just nostalgic reasons.
