In the beginning, the Detective Boys ask her questions about the recent interview that came with her and Taii and that it was cool she was featured in the newspaper with Taii. Azusa was pleased with the journalist's coming and was happy but didn't expect the article to be that big about them. The journal then mentionned she was beautiful but she just said that she wasn't that so as Conan said that journals do make false reports making Azusa feel awkward. She then tells she's been keeping Taii for at least a week at her home making the Detective Boys jealous.

Azusa was inserted into this manga canon episode despite still being an anime original character.
Azusa was working in the cafe with Amuro but a mysterious client was there eating sandwiches instead of the ordinary breackfast and wasn't even dressed as a salaryman ready to work. He also came in the evening and in the afternoon which rose up Amuro and Conan's suspicion for him. Conan asked Azusa who was the man and Azusa just replied he came a lot recently but that she didn't know his name as she was flowering the plants. Earlier, Kogoro, Ran and Conan watched the man order at Azusa but he didn't even look at the menu which made them think it was weird. Kogoro thought the man was there since he thought Azusa was beautiful which meant Kogoro really thought that too. Azusa, the Detective Boys and Conan were all astonished to see that the mysterious man was in fact a baker trying to get Amuro's secret sandwich recipe. Amuro gave him the recipe but azusa told him he should have the Cafe Poirot's manager's permission before doing it as Rei received a phone call from Vermouth.
