In Dark Gathering Episode 4, Keitaro and his friends visit a college for orientation purposes. Eiko convinces Keitaro to attend the Spooky Stories and Urban Legends class demo sessions.

Yayoi devises a quirky and effective plan to prevent Keitaro from perishing by the spirit’s flame powers. Yayoi arrives home and lets her captured spirits teach the VHS spirit a lesson. Meanwhile, Eiko picks Keitaro up from the doctor and the two engage in an intimate conversation. Eiko returns home and we learn that she’s eerily obsessed with Keitaro.
