Synopsis Edit

One night, Kenichi, Yumeko and Kemumaki are star-gazing. Yumeko says she wishes she had a broomstick so that she could watch the stars from a closer view, but Kenichi and Kemumaki laughingly tell her that it isn't possible. Annoyed, she tells them that they have no sense of creativity and rides off on her bike, and Kenichi and Kemumaki hatch plans to impress her.

Back at his home, Kenichi tries in vain to get his broom going. Hattori makes fun of him, but when he finds out he should use his Ninja Techniques, he is horrified. Kagechiyo, who has been spying on them, runs off to Kemumaki, only to find that he's already getting his plan into action. He tells his master that Hattori's already getting his plan into action, and Kemumaki gets ready to take instant action.

The next day, Kemumaki and Kagechiyo spy on Hattori, and are horrified when he gets his broom to fly. However, it transpires that he's using giant slingshots, and they set up a large square plank - which Hattori crashes into!

At their flat, Kemumaki creates a special broomstick with an electric propeller, and has Kagechiyo do the wire-works. They test their broom, and it works out well at first, but Kagechiyo slips up and they come down to Earth with a bump.

Later on, Kemumaki builds another broom with pedals, and when Kagechiyo asks why he's dismantling his bike, Kemumaki tells him to shut up or he'll be dismantled next.

Next day, on the outskirts of the forest, Kenichi, Shinzo and Shishimaru bring Yumeko to see Hattori and Kemumaki riding their brooms. With the guidance of a rope, Hattori glides between the trees, and when Kemumaki sees him, he summons Kagechiyo, who cuts the ropes with his nails. Hattori falls off his broom and lands in the bushes. Kemumaki laughs, but then his broom loses power and he takes a tumble as well. Yumeko then comes clean to Kenichi, and tells him that she wanted to ride on a unicorn instead. Hattori, Kemumaki, Kenichi, Shinzo and Shishimaru are stunned.
