Everyone in the classroom loves classmate Shizuka. Nobita has a big crush on her, too. Also, Shizuka also likes everyone in the class. But, there's a problem, sponger Botako came from the countryside and Nobita now can't approach Shizuka. Being not close to her made Nobita sad. Doraemon took a Arrow of Cupid and with Nobita, went to Shizuka's home. Nobita saw her and tried to shoot her but, by mistake the arrow hits the clumsy Botako. Then, she begun to pursue him like a runaway locomotive. Nobita is discouraged by failure. He then tried to hit Shizuka from an approaching distance in order to hit an arrow, but she was yelling "murderer!". Sensei appeared and took away the arrow with him.
