One day, while looking at the request board, Happy finds one of the most incredible job requests he has ever laid eyes upon.
Looking for a job at the request board, Happy spots an incredible request: to catch the rare delicacy, Hane-Sakana, with the reward being 30,000 and a taste of the fish. Lucy Heartfilia, sitting on a stool in front of the Fairy Tail bar, tells Happy to calm down, calling his optimism scary. Furthermore, she also speculates that it sounds like it will taste awful. Natsu Dragneel stands next to Happy as he hears Lucy's opinions, and tells her that she doesn't have to come with them, with Lucy's response being that she never agreed to tagging along with them in the first place.
On their way there, reaching a cliff, Happy comments on Lucy's previous statement, and calls it cute that she came along with them anyway, having Natsu to agree with him. Lucy simply informs them that the sole purpose for her to come with them is her desire to see the Hane-Sakana fly through the air, but with no interest in eating them. Natsu turns around to look at Lucy, and questions her explanation for tagging along, and notifies her that if she doesn't watch out, they'll eat her. As the Hane-Sakana gather around Lucy and begin to bite several parts of her body, Lucy tells Natsu that she wishes he said that sooner. The three Mages then reach a cliff where the Hane-Sakana can be fished. Happy takes his fishing rod out and launches it to the targeted area with a bait attached to the hook.
After initially giving up, Happy manages to catch many of the Hane-Sakana after Lucy encourages him, though Happy misinterprets the gesture and thinks that Lucy is picking on him, as he cries toward Natsu expressing the said thought. They arrive at the client's house. Lucy, with a cooked Hane-Sakana at hand, expresses her displeasure of the terrible taste the fish has. Meanwhile, Natsu eats a different food as he asks Lucy if the fish truly taste horrible, with Lucy angrily telling him to try to eat the fish before doubting her comment. Happy looks at the fish as his eyes sparkle with desire. He takes one and begins to eat it. Lucy looks at him and states that Happy must be enjoying it. However, Happy throws out the part he was eating and states that the taste is terrible, surprising Lucy beyond comprehension.
