The sun was starting to rise in Tacodale, and Akari was asleep. The alarm clock on her side table read, "07:35, November 1, 2015". Her cell phone, her smartwatch, her sunglasses... all of them were scattered in her closets, like the people of a sparsely-populated country. But the sound of a Strawbuzzy suddenly waked her up, with an edible envelope made out of bits of candies.

Akari took that envelope from the mail, opened it, and was amazed by what she saw: a letter written on thin, pure gold...

"Congrats! You, Akari Kaplinsky, and your daughter, Tohru, have been selected to be part of a tour of the entire Flipverse! Meet me at Truffleton University upon arrival to discuss this matter. Signed, Ripley Bloomberg"

Upon completion of reading that letter, Akari went downstairs to eat an Asian breakfast with her daughter, Tohru. (The husband, Kenji, had left home at 06:00, so he ate his breakfast at Papa's Taco Mia and zoomed straight to a pizza-eating competition hosted by Papa Louie.) Then, the mother-and-daughter pair left home on the ThunderVolt, and straight to Truffleton University, albeit with helmets and safety belts.

"Let's jive to the beats as we drive on the road!" Taylor proclaimed, as he searched the flipping cellphone he'd just bought from the Bloop Mobile store in Whiskview Mall for music. (The model of that phone was 'BF-3690H', signifying a Flip Musepresso, dual-SIM, flipping model from Bloop Mobile.) He'd also received a similar golden ticket to Akari's a few days earlier, the same day that Iggy received that ticket.

By that time, Taylor chose to play the Scarlett and the Shakers album "OOH!", with the first track played being "Sexy! No, No, No...". The album was played up to the final track for the duration of Mary's drive to Truffleton University. Upon arrival, the duo of Taylor and Mary rode a tram to the university's convention center, where they would meet Ripley.

Firstly, both Taylor and Mary showed their golden tickets to Ripley; they were taken to a meeting room with enough space for a group of forty. The plaque on the door leading to that meeting room read, "Onyx 5".

"So...," Ripley began, and continued by telling Taylor and Mary as follows: "this is the room where we're holding our meeting for a grand tour of the Flipverse! Do you like that?"

Both Taylor and Mary put their thumbs up, and after a few hours of only them and Akari in the Onyx 5 meeting room, the rest of the invitees arrived. Prudence did the invitee registration, with all of the invitees present (including the first three to arrive). Later, Whippa commenced the entire meeting by bragging about her new pet Xepper, Xania, and the other creatures that she had adopted on her previous tours of the Flipverse. She then unveiled her latest adoption - Xania, one of the pint-sized Xeppers from the X Zone, last appeared in front of the workers at Papa Louie's restaurants while ordering late at night at the Scooperia in Oniontown. Her brother, Mousse, was blushed by seeing a Xepper for the first time.

The end of the conference was marked by Ripley giving her teams of explorers - Team Spring, Team Summer, Team Autumn, and Team Winter - four jars of eleven Warp Coins, with each color representing a certain part of the Flipverse: lime-green for Munchmore's savory side, hot-pink for its sweet side, slate-gray for the Lowlands, dark-green for the Evershade Forest, marine-blue for Port Scamwell, jet-black for the X Zone, et cetera, et cetera. Akari wrote the following sonnet after leaving the Onyx 5 conference room for her husband, Kenji:

My dear husband, you inspire me to write.
How I love the way you eat, run and walk,
Invading my mind day and through the night,
Always dreaming about the alert locke.

Let me compare you to a nonmember?
You are more content, uniform and warm.
Sharp fogs hide the oceans of November,
And autumntime has the light space platform.

How do I love you? Let me count the ways.
I love your mouth and personality.
Thinking of your funny mouth fills my days.
My love for you is the practicality.

Now I must away with a desert heart,
Remember my moot words whilst we're apart.

She sent the paper where she wrote that sonnet via Mr. Bombolony's Strawbuzzy Mail Service, where one of the Strawbuzzies of Munchmore packed it in another edible envelope, this time out of wafers coated with Flavor X syrup.

Upon arrival at a house in Burgerburgh, Clover and Janana stored the jar of Warp Coins intended for Team Summer in a digital safe box manufactured by Gigaloaf Labs. After that, they ate tacos made out of pumpkin tortilla shells, with cubes made out of turkeys in them. After eating tacos, the duo of Clover and Janana waited patiently for someone to send a message via e-mail to the e-mail addresses of both of them, until someone identified by the name "Serge D. Faniel" and the e-mail address "sargefan@gigamail.com" sent an e-mail to the following addresses of the members of Team Summer:


Clover took out her smartphone (manufactured by Bloop Mobile; model code: BS-4100E, signifying a Sierra Four, 4G LTE, dual-edge-screen model) and searched for notifications relating to Gigamail (an e-mail service developed by Gigaloaf Labs), where she found a notification that read, "New automated e-mail message from Serge D. Faniel via an event-scheduling app - subject: 'Meeting about the dangers of the Flipverse scheduled in Oniontown'". She read that e-mail, and found out that all of the participants of that tour of the Flipverse would meet Sarge Fan upon arrival, in the dining areas of Papa's Scooperia.

So both Clover and Janana took the maglev train to the main railway hub of Oniontown, where Sarge Fan would be meeting the participants of Ripley's tour of the Flipverse. Then, they took the Oniontown Subway to Scallion Street via the S train, near which the Scooperia was located. Upon arrival, they sat at a private room within the dining areas of that restaurant, and Papa Louie took the orders of all four teams of explorers, as well as Whippa's, Ripley's, and Sarge Fan's. The discussion started when Sarge Fan said, "So... I'm gonna tell you about the dangers of other-worldly locations within the Flipverse."

The entire dining party became more talkative over time; at the peak of the talks, the private dining room in the Scooperia was as noisy as a quarrel. At the end of that discussion, brochures were given out to each person; they put some detail on the dangers that could occur outside of the team members' "comfort zones". The participants that came all the way from Tacodale - Akari, Tohru, and Zoe - took the Oniontown-Tacodale maglev train back.

The next day, and another sunrise, this time in front of Scarlett's house in Frostfield. She woke up a little earlier than usual, and waited for her maids to cook her favorite breakfast dish - scrambled eggs with cheese and vegetables. After eating that dish, she phone-called her teammates from Team Winter via their phone numbers to come to her house. Upon hanging up, she waited patiently as she read the following text - an excerpt from the latest edition of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Flipverse, originally written by Professor Fitz and edited by Iggy and Ripley:

"These sacred Warp Coins were guarded by the Xeppers for a billion years after the creation of the Flipverse; that all changed one fateful night, when a crystal-like asteroid with a pink tail collided with the X Zone, a very central realm to the entire Flipverse. Xolo and Xandra were sent to the safest realm possible, and all of those Warp Coins were scattered all around the Flipverse. Recently, however, a vlogger named Whippa Thunberg has rediscovered those Warp Coins whilst touring the entire Flipverse. She brought home a Xepper from the X Zone, in which she has named 'Xania'. She reported the rediscoveries to Truffleton University's Department of Ethology, and Ripley had returned from a previous expedition of the land of Munchmore two months before the time of writing. Each Warp Coin is colored to differentiate one realm from another - for example, the Warp Coins required to access Port Scamwell are colored marine-blue. The ones required to return to our world are made out of gold."

After reading the above text, the rest of the explorers in Team Winter - Carlo Romano, Greg, Iggy, Kaleb, and Mousse - as well as Ripley, arrived at Scarlett's house, in which Scarlett verified the identities before even letting them enter. She took the jar of Warp Coins intended for Team Winter out of her digital safe box (also made by Gigaloaf Labs) and locked her bedroom door once all of the aforementioned people had entered it. She took out a Warp Coin by random (a dark-green one, representing the Evershade Forest) and put it under a one-minute timer, within which she managed to put her teammates together, and within which she took her jar of Warp Coins. After that one minute, all of Team Winter, including Ripley, was warped into the Evershade Forest, in which they would return to their comfort zones if only they used the Warp Coins made out of gold. Plus, Sarge Fan had warned all of the teams participating in Ripley's tour of the Flipverse beforehand, and one of the dangers of the Evershade Forest - Pikespells - had been mentioned in his brochure. Also, Ripley had borrowed Whippa's compendium of Warp Coins for her tour, so whenever Teams Spring, Summer, and Autumn required some help, she would be able to aid them by using the Warp Coins in that compendium.

Koilee was somewhat anguished when she arrived back home from her freshwater-curating job: she didn't know what to do! She'd been dining out with Nyushin Fushigina to eat a Japanese-style dinner at a tsukemen shop named "Aroma-Umami" (アロマ-ウマミ) on the first basement floor of the SBfrenzy Department Store in Sakura Bay. And, goodness, had she bought a bottle of mineral water from MochiMart! Upon returning home, she was surrounded by the rest of Team Summer - Clover, Janana, Nick, Penny, and Utah; Whippa was also in, as she wanted to assist Ripley on her tour of the Flipverse. She also saw a slate-gray Warp Coin placed under a two-minute timer, where one minute was left.

Clover took out her Bloop Sierra Four mobile phone from her purse, in which she decided to strikeout every single task from her latest to-do list, with the last one being "Come to Koilee's house to get warped". After the two minutes set for the Warp Coin before warping the people within its surroundings had been exhausted, all of Team Summer, including Whippa, got warped alongside Koilee's jar of Warp Coins.

Whippa and Team Summer got warped into the Lowlands, where Scout and his buddy, Jacksmith, were found to be crafting weapons. The Cluckshire Brood welcomed the explorers, and treated them as if they were the messengers of Princess Liliana. One of the Whirlweeds in the Lowlands attempted to disorientate Janana with a cloud of poisoned pollen, but the latter stopped the former from doing such after she shot fire using Sarge's Crushida Pepper bombs. This resulted in Pizza Monsters attacking the troops of the Cluckshire Brood, and upon defeat, they were turned into normal pizzas that got shared between Team Summer, Whippa, and Scout.

Whippa found out that the Whirlweed that attempted to attack Janana earlier was enchanted by elemental wind, and therefore, auctioned it in front of Team Summer. Out of the auctionees, Janana bidded the highest (three dollars and 99 cents), so it was sold to her, and it got the name 'Yolanda'.

While Teams Summer and Winter were in specific locations of the Plumpfeather Kingdom, Team Spring had yet to leave their "comfort zones" to embark on their part of the tour. Prudence had been selected on this day as another of Ripley's assistants, this time as the assistant of Team Spring.

The sun rose the next day like a king rising to power; Shannon woke up, with her breakfast dishes as beautiful as birds. After eating breakfast, she left her house in Tastyville to go to Whiskview Mall via the Tastyville-Whiskview Mall maglev train, where Akari, Chester, Franco, Johnny, Mary, and Prudence would be waiting. Upon arrival, she stroke out one of the tasks listed on her to-do list, which was on her flipping cellphone (manufactured by Bloop Mobile; model code: BF-2880, signifying a Flip TaskView, mono-SIM, 4G LTE model). That task was listed as "Go to Whiskview Mall to meet my teammates".

Akari was playing Pizza Pachinko at the Papa Louie Arcade game center under Twizzy's; Prudence had just bought some nightgowns from Fashion Flambé. A few minutes later, all of Team Spring (including Prudence) arrived at the main plaza of Whiskview Mall. The latter had brought in a jar of Warp Coins intended for the former; a Warp Coin was picked at random, and it was placed on a one-minute timer. All of Team Spring, including Prudence, had gotten near that hot-pink Warp Coin leading to the sweet side of Munchmore, and within one minute, they were warped into Neapolitown, where Coco Cooladas would meet and greet the explorers.

One of the Coco Cooladas kissed Akari on her right leg; the latter decided to name the former 'Sukiyaki'. Thus, she adopted that Coco Coolada because she loved it so much - meanwhile, Johnny was hanging out with Jill Berry, a student from the high school in Neapolitown. A jukebox was playing songs sung by Hokey Poke and the Coconuts, a popular band in Munchmore; meanwhile, Mary was hanging out Chip McMint, where the former showed the latter her pugs. It was going to be love at first sight!

Now that Team Autumn was the only team of explorers that had yet to leave their "comfort zones" and get warped into another realm, Austin and Sarge Fan got hired by Ripley as the assistants of that team; meanwhile, Rudy was touring Cletus' Scrapyard with Taylor when he received a phone call from Austin. He took out his smartphone (manufactured by Bloop Mobile; model code: BN-4000H, signifying a NoteIt Four, dual-SIM model) from his purse and answered that call, where it was revealed that Team Autumn would meet in Toastwood.

Upon arrival in Toastwood, Austin, Deano, Olivia, Rudy, Sarge Fan, Taylor, Tohru, and Zoe went into the Trading Post; however, Chester wasn't there, as he'd embarked on the tour of the Flipverse with Team Spring, where he was visiting Munchmore's sweet side. After entering that place, Olivia took out the jar of Warp Coins intended for Team Autumn and randomly picked one; after the set one-minute timer expired, all members of the team of explorers (Austin and Sarge Fan included) were warped into Munchmore's savory side, as the color of that Warp Coin was lime-green.

After having entered Munchmore via a Warp Coin, Rudy found a Cheddar Mack on Mount Monterrey. He loved it a lot; thus, he decided to name it Tammie. Sarge Fan also found out that his best friend, Sergeant Crushida Pepper, was chilling out on a hammock by the beach whilst jamming to the sounds of Hokey Poke and the Coconuts. Both sides hugged each other like birds of a feather; meanwhile, Olivia was break-dancing to hip-hop music with a scientist named Radley Madish, as well as Party Subs (in which she referred to as "Sprit Snackimals"). Also, Tohru and Taylor were lip-syncing to the songs of Scarlett and the Shakers with Swiss Zacks and Pararadishes. Goodness, what cheesy encounters!

By the time Koilee had first hung out with Scout (her new friend) while in the Lowlands, Carlo Romano and Mousse were simultaneously hitchhiking and singing "No Good Advice" by Scarlett and the Shakers when they found a strange sight: a lone Pikespell gazing around. That Pikespell, a Crystalcalf, had been asked by the Pigarius Legion to leave the Alpine Ridge and stay in the Evershade Forest for evermore; although it attempted to freeze Carlo Romano with its trident, the latter stopped the former from doing so using an X-Wand that Ripley had gifted him upon her return from a visit to the X Zone a year earlier. He did similar things with some of the other Pikespells living in that forest, this time using an army of Burgerzillas (in which he turned into normal burgers later on).

Mousse fell in love with that Crystalcalf, as the former saw the latter as "in a pathetic situation". He decided to call it "Yoshi", and wanted to take it back to his "comfort zone" as a souvenir. By that time, however, Ripley had returned from two short expeditions, one to Neapolitown and the other to Port Scamwell, where she'd made a once-evil witch named Malana Mire good.

"Hello, team!" began Ripley, and continued, "I've got a surprise for you! I found this string of Yum n' M snackimals while exploring Munchmore's sweet side! I also took the keys to the Serpent Blade from Malana Mire and got that blade before exiling Hex Hatfield into Sakura Bay!"

Thus, she showed her string of Yum n' M snackimals and the once-lost Serpent Blade; the former became Yoshi's allies, whilst the latter got into the hands of Carlo Romano. Ripley kept her compendium of Warp Coins in her hands: she wanted to take all of Team Winter to another part of the Flipverse - the Mooner Ranch!

In the middle of Team Winter's expedition to the Mooner Ranch, Team Spring got warped into Port Scamwell via a Warp Coin that'd been set to warp the people in its surroundings after two minutes had passed. There, they met a witch that'd become good after Ripley cast a spell that could turn evil into goodness.

Akari, with her new pet Coco Coolada named Sukiyaki, knew that good witch as Malana Mire; previously a criminal mystic, she'd lost her interest in the dark arts after getting cast by Ripley's spell. The Serpent Blade in which she'd been accused of stealing from Ella Windstorm was gone, too - Carlo Romano had taken it over. In their places were an interest in music and a pet Strawbuzzy.

Malana Mire became Akari's new friend; meanwhile, Shannon was taking pictures of Dumbbell and the parrots that Cactus McCoy had set free from their cages, albeit without a ship named the Brass Urchin, which appeared to have left Port Scamwell early. Mary was simultaneously hanging out with Ella Windstorm and listening to music by Scarlett and the Shakers. This must've been an encounter of a bad girl gone good - and that girl was Malana Mire!

After touring both Munchmore's sweet side and Port Scamwell, the time became right for the explorers in Team Spring to get back to their "comfort zones", and therefore, got warped back to Frostfield. They later took the Frostfield-Truffleton University maglev train, in which Prudence showed the discoveries from their expedition to Professor Fitz; the latter confirmed those discoveries, which were written by Prudence as follows:

TEAM SPRING'S DISCOVERIES OF EXTRATERRESTRIAL LIFE - MUNCHMORE AND PORT SCAMWELL

1) Coco Cooladas (Akari even adopted one and named it 'Sukiyaki'!)
2) Two Scoopians named Jill Berry and Chip McMint
3) A 'bad-girl-gone-good' witch named Malana Mire (she used to be a criminal mystic)
4) Malana Mire's pet Strawbuzzy
5) A Volado woman named Ella Windstorm
6) A shipmate named Dumbbell
7) Parrots in Port Scamwell

Meanwhile, Team Winter decided to leave Mooner Ranch and get warped into the Wintergreen Way precinct of Munchmore, so Ripley picked a pale-blue Warp Coin from Whippa's compendium that'd been set to warp the people nearby after 30 seconds. When those 30 seconds expired, they were warped away into Munchmore, this time onto Wintergreen Way.

Upon arrival in the Wintergreen Way precinct, Scarlett sang the following song, as her teammates knew her as part of a band:

Sleigh bells ring, are you listenin'
In the lane, snow is glistenin'
A beautiful sight
We're happy tonight
Walkin' in a winter wonderland
Gone away is the bluebird
Here to stay is the new bird
Who sings love songs we go along
Walkin' in a winter wonderland
In the meadow we can build a snowman
And pretend that he is Sprinks the Clown
He'll say "are you married?", we'll say "no, man
But you can do the job when you're in town"
Later on, we'll conspire
As we dream by the fire
To face unafraid
The plans that we've made
Walkin' in a winter wonderland

While singing that song, Scarlett actually made a snowman out of the snow in Wintergreen Way and saw a Strawbuzzy and a Peachbuzzy (which she metaphorically called 'bluebird' and 'new bird'). All of Team Winter (incl. Ripley and Mousse's new pet Pikespell) got more powerful while in the Evershade Forest, thanks to the Serpent Blade gifted from Ripley to Carlo Romano and Yoshi's trident. However, things started to go wrong when one of the Chocomints tried to bite Iggy in the leg. This started a combat between the two sides, in which Iggy ended up using the Serpent Blade as his bait to take over the Chocomint that tried to bite his leg and place it in front of the Cupcakeria in Frostfield for the winter.

Later on, Scarlett was found singing again, this time to the following lyrics:

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas,
Just like the ones I used to know,
Where those treetops glisten, and children listen,
To hear sleigh bells in the snow, the snow
Then, I-I-I am dreaming of a white Christmas,
With every Christmas card I write,
May your days, may your days, may your days be merry and bright,
And may all your Christmases be white

By that time, she'd adopted a Spearmint that she named "Londone"; she was back from a short visit to the Mintley Meadows, where she discussed various things with her assistant, Ripley. Thanks to the many encounters during that part of Team Winter's expeditions, the Wintergreen Way would be a true winter wonderland, after all!

As Team Autumn walked through the savory side of Munchmore, they became increasingly tired; Rudy (including his pet Cheddar Mack, Tammie) was no exception. That was, until they discovered a Lucky Lucky Matsuri bazaar being hosted on the Cheddar Hills by Radley Madish and his best friend, Radlynn (the girl that got warped as part of a plot by Chip McMint to host a Japanese-style bazaar in the land of Munchmore). Goodness, was it huge!

Numerous Japanoise groups performed on the performance stage of the bazaar; Koilee was freelance-singing with a few other female J-pop singers participating as part of an all-female J-pop group named 35NE139 (she was forced to get warped into the Cheddar Hills in the midst of Team Summer's expedition of the Lowlands). A donburi shop from Sakura Bay named "Amamatsu" (アママツ) had opened up a pop-up stall for that event. Anime shops, sake bars, kawaii fashion stores - goodness, was there even a pachinko parlor in that Lucky Lucky Matsuri bazaar!

Rudy and Taylor decided to chillax in one of three saunas located on the western side of the bazaar on the Cheddar Hills; meanwhile, Olivia and Zoe were hanging out at a sake bar named "Amaterasu-sake" (アマテラス-サケ) whilst listening to the sounds of an all-male J-pop group, the Mochi Boys (MBS; モチ-バオイス). Tohru and Deano were found lip-syncing to a 35NE139 song titled "I'm the Best" (私が一番よく; Watashi ga ichiban yoku). At that time, Radley Madish stated, using his megaphone, as follows: "Thank you, 35NE139, for performing that technopop song in front of our audience. I'd like my BFF, Radlynn, to take the stage for now," after which Radlynn took over the show.

That Radley Madish dude was surely going to be lucky, lucky, and luckier, after the end of that Lucky Lucky Matsuri bazaar on the Cheddar Hills!

The aforementioned Lucky Lucky Matsuri bazaar in Munchmore's Cheddar Hills was found to have a Japanese-style capsule hotel named 'Matsuri 48 Hours' (マツリ48H) for Team Autumn to stay there for three nights (the bazaar would be around for four days). Thus, Rudy, already exhausted, was the first to go to bed in his newly-booked, small, single-bed-sized capsule. As there was no room for domesticated snackimals in there, he had to store his pet Cheddar Mack, Tammie, in one of the shelves for the night.

Meanwhile, the explorers in Team Winter had gotten tired from playing with the snow along Wintergreen Way; thus, Scarlett decided to take out a golden Warp Coin from her jar of Warp Coins. After the expiry of the two minutes that'd been set, she got warped back to the human world of the Flipverse (alongside Ripley, Carlo Romano, Greg, Iggy, Kaleb, and Mousse).

Upon returning to their "comfort zones", the Team Winter explorers that'd toured parts of the Flipverse took the maglev train to Truffleton University, where Scarlett showed her rough diary entries to Professor Fitz for the latter to include in a neatly-typed report relating to the Flipverse. Carlo Romano showed the male students at Truffleton University the Serpent Blade that he'd obtained from Ripley, which in turn obtained it from Malana Mire. And, last but not least, Mousse unveiled his pet Pikespell, Yoshi, in front of the female students. That was sure to be the "homecoming" of the explorers in Team Winter, after all that'd happened throughout their part of the tour!

At the meantime, while Tohru (an explorer in Team Autumn) was chillaxing in a sauna at the Lucky Lucky Matsuri bazaar in Munchmore's Cheddar Hills, she saw Radlynn reading the latest articles posted on the Nowtime News smartphone application, with one of the hottest articles in Nova Samanta's "Chronicles of the Flipverse" column titled, "The Serpent Blade and more: The stuff found by Ripley Bloomberg's team on their part of an expedition of the Flipverse". It was another sunrise in Munchmore; meanwhile, Rudy and Olivia had woken up to the sound of an alarm clock that read, "08:20 A.M.".

"Where shall we go today, Team Winter?" Ripley asked her teammates.

After that, the hitchhike towards Munchmore's Multigrain Fields had begun. On the way, they ate their lunch at a French boulangerie near a luxury hotel on the foot of Mount Monterey; as the Scoopian neighborhood of Vanilla Heights was along the path, they managed to eat at Spumoni Café and meet Luau LePunch's BFF, LePete, as well. Upon finally arriving in Multigrain Fields, Chip McMint's mother was found chillaxing in one of the area's last remaining cottages. Rudy called his hitchhiking experience as a "far-from-home" one.

After a few hours in the cottage of Chip McMint's mother, all the explorers in Team Winter decided to take a maglev train back to the Lucky Lucky Matsuri bazaar in the Cheddar Hills of Munchmore. As a result, a tsukemen dinner was hosted by Ripley at a tsukemen shop in the bazaar; at the end of the schedule for the day, her teammates would follow her to the capsule hotel she booked. Still far from home, right?
