Hello all. Yuki here!
The Strange Tale of the Bakumatsu Phantom
Today’s task: find enough members to prevent the drama club from folding!
Current member count: 1
Haruhiko and the gang must find members to help out the drama club, or else they won’t be able to participate in the upcoming competition. The club’s lone member, Kitajima Ayumi, has thought up a play about Shinigami (death gods), and rehearsals are set to begin.
But suddenly, Koito senses a phantom in the club…
Script： Fumihiko Shimo

Haruhito and the gang get asked to help find some stand-ins for the drama club, in order to participate in a competition.
Koito-chan and Kurumi-chan start participating in the drama club’s rehearsals for the play they will be performing at the competition.
Koito-chan senses a phantom presence in the room.
However, the rehearsal proceeds smoothly with no interruption from the phantom.
At long last, the day of the theater competition arrives.
No sooner does the play get underway, the stage begins to turn into a river, and Kitajima-senpai briefly transforms.
The culprit is a phantom borne of Kitajima-senpai’s regret and despair at 10 consecutive years of failure.
Fortunately, the audience think that it was all part of the play.
Haruhiko and the gang decide that the show must go on.
As the play continues, the over-exerted Kitajima-senpai once again turns the entire stage into a phantom world.
The effects start to spread to the spectators’ seats.
As Kitajima-senpai really starts giving it her all, Haruhiko and the gang have to get in to serious battle mode.
Even Ruru fought hard.
At the end of it all, the play wrapped up smoothly. And without sealing Kitajima-senapi, Haruhiko and the gang return to rehearsals.
Today’s episode was a period piece. Have you ever heard of the ‘bakufu’?
The ‘bakufu’ is period of time in Japanese history. There are lots of Japanese people who are fans of the ‘bakufu.’
Famous characters from this period in Japanese history, such as Okita Souji, frequently appear in animes. Trying to find them can be fun!
Anyway, back to the action. Once again, this week’s battle scene featured a large mismatch between Albrecht’s cuteness and power, lol.
Even Ruru was really cute, dispatching a phantom in a really plain manner.
It’s nice to see that there are other phantoms like Ruru, who aren’t so awful toward humans.
It was fun watching everyone come together, and put all their effort and prayer toward a single goal. enjoy their youth.
It looks like Ruru was the main character in this week’s episode.
Ruru fans must be elated!
