In episode 4, titled ‘Yep, She Sees Them,’ Miko’s struggles to accept her new ability continue. She has a nightmare and wakes up to find her younger brother Kyousuke in her room. Kyousuke bluntly asks her if she was having a dirty dream, making her feel irritated. Later, she spends time with Hana and buys chestnut pudding. That night, Miko and Kyousuke watch TV together, when the former suddenly says that she needs something to drink and goes to the vending machine outside.
While trying to put a coin into the slot, Miko accidentally drops it and sees a spirit that looks like a tiny elderly man. Thinking that it’s cute, she follows it and comes across a colossal monster, who is apparently eating the small one. Miko discovers that she can’t move. Fortunately, a crow suddenly appears and takes her coin. This breaks Miko out of her stupor, and she runs away.
Because of Miko’s odd behavior, Kyousuke comes to believe that she is in an abusive relationship, but he later discovers that the assumption is incorrect. Miko’s father is also revealed to be a ghost who died in an accident. She leaves the chestnut pudding at his altar. The post-credits scene reveals that Miko saw ghosts through TV, and that’s why she hastily left earlier. In episode 5, Hana might rescue a dog. Yuria will approach Godmother, hoping to be her apprentice. A new character might be introduced in the series.
