Students are not showing up to school at an alarming rate. Kazuya and Kiriha begin to investigate and discover it’s a pillow amasogi, trapping the students in a dream. They go into the dream, but it’s not what they were expecting!
After a couple of false leads, they track down the person responsible and surprisingly it’s their sensei. When confronted, she falls asleep and retreats to the dream. Kukuri brings in a specialist that can send them all to the dream so that they can destroy the amasogi and bring all the students back because if they destroy the amasogi in the real world, everyone will be trapped there.
In order to protect themselves, Kazuya, Kiriha, Chisato, Osamu, and Shirou all enter the dream in a gender-flipped form. Unfortunately, sensei is waiting for them, although she is actually the shadow form of sensei and plans on subjugating them too. Kazuya and Kiriha are forced to fight the shadow forms of themselves, while the others escape and find the real sensei.
They fight back against shadow sensei and eventually win, destroying the amasogi with a little help from their own amasogi experiences. With that done, all they need to do is go to sleep in the dream and wake in the real world. Kiriha sees this as the perfect chance to get to grips with Kazuya’s feminine body. Shirou is having trouble getting to sleep and enlists Osamu to help him out… things may get a little out of hand!
It was another fun and entertaining episode and once more a complete shift in tone from the previous episode. I will be honest and say that I was expecting a lot more once I realised this was a gender-flipping episode, especially from Shirou. He did deliver after the end credits, but I felt like they could have gone further with things.
I thought it was a nice touch bringing their old amasogi experiences back for this one and seeing Kiriha as a guy, shows just how it’s not really all right to have either gender being a bit forceful, sexually. It was funny, but again, that’s just because this is fiction and we can separate the real world from anime.
Entering the Dream!
Taking on the Amasogi!
