As the head staff tries to discuss what to do for the plot of the thirteenth episode, they start to liken the protagonist’s reason for flying to their own reasons for getting into the anime industry.

Meanwhile, Midori, who has been given writing assignments by Maitake to improve her writing skills in lieu of directly teaching her, feels downhearted when an increasingly irritable Hiraoka implies that she can get her way just because she is a girl.

And she’s not the only one looking to meddle in Yato’s affairs…

Ebisu tries to control Ayakashi using masks but ends up getting blighted. Meanwhile, Yato is in great spirits because the shrine Hiyori made for him has been recognized as an official shrine by the Heavens after Yato continued to pester them for several days to have it recognized, causing Hiyori and Yukine to worry about how lax the government system of the heavens are. However, Yato is forced to leave Yukine after Nora calls him, going back to his darker line of work as a God of Calamity.
