Kohina Ichimatsu, the self-proclaimed doll, called out the fox ghost Kokkuri-san with a suspicious incantation! But it was a story of the past where Kokkuri-san was able to answer any question you had. Nowadays, it relies on a certain search engine, but is actually bad at anything digital. He was going to possess Kohina, but got worried about her living all alone and devotes himself to do chores as if he was her mother.

Short specials added to Blu-ray/DVD volumes.

Mihama Academy is a prison-like school built to preserve “fruit” that has fallen too far from its tree. It is home to five female students who each have their own reasons for enrolling in the academy and live their life idly within the walls of Mihama. One day, Kazami Yuuji—the institute’s first male student—arrives and throws the orderly rhythm of Mihama off balance. Is Yuuji what the girls need to grab hold of their lives once more, or will the weight of their pasts prove too steep a wall to overcome? Or, is his past even heavier than any of the others?

A letter arrives at Death Cram School. Inside is a an invitation to a spa resort.
Yumi declares to the four excited girls that, “No. This is evil itself,” points out that they are slacking off too much. Shiki proposes, “When opinions are divided, it’s time for boob rock-paper-scissors!” and then wins so they all go to the pool.

There, girls from Hanzoo Academy, Homura Crimson Squad, and Hebijo Clandestine Girls’ Academy also come, but Asuka says, “Let’s have fun together today” and they call a temporary truce.

However, a trivial matter sets off a sour quarrel and, at Yumi’s suggestion, they settle it with a showdown in the style of the ancient shinobi.
