On the way home, the two have a conversation. Ayumu gets happy, and two women gossip about the two students. At Ayumu's home, Mysteltainn arrives in a flashy manner. Ayumu wields the chainsaw proudly because he can now erase everyone's memories of seeing Ayumu's cross dressing dress. With the night over, Ayumu greets everyone good morning with such great enthusiasm. Yet, he still cross dresses at school when Orito has him try out a Dracula's bride outfit. Orito thinks his legs look familar while Taeko compliments on his legs. Through the hallways, Ayumu marches with feelings of shame to Haruna's booth. Over there, Haruna shows off her swimsuit, and when Haruna plays the curse song, everyone suffers except Eucliwood. Behind the school, Yuki asks Ayumu to read a strange letter, and she has something important to tell him. Yuki states she will never look at another man with a blushed face. She struggles to confess her feelings, and she steps backwards and presses a button on a tree. This unleashes a Megalo. Meanwhile, Eucliwood and Seraphim advertise in bunny suits, and Haruna finishes making something. Back to Ayumu, the same stranger comes to him while the Megalo counts down the self destruct sequence. Ayumu hurries and makes Yuki wear the golden ring. The stranger announces that the Masou ring will prevent Yuki from turning into a weapon. When Yuki wakes up, she looks at the ring as a wedding ring. She misunderstands the situation and runs away from Ayumu since this is not a good time to kiss. Haruna arrives to call Ayumu to take care of Megalo.
