Japanese episode title: ビックリ! ひめスぺっちもやってきた! (Bikkuri! Himesupetchi mo yattekita!)
English translation: "Surprise! Himespetchi Has Arrived Too!"
Original airdate: September 24th, 2012

Himespetchi arrives in Dream Town to be with Mametchi and becomes a student at Dream School. Himespetchi worries when she sees Yumemitchi and Kiraritchi hanging out with Mametchi and later faints from witnessing him holding Yumemitchi's hands; Yumemitchi and Kiraritchi have to help her with the cheerleader skills their Yume Kira Bags give them.


This episode contains the following tropes:

  • Color Failure: Himespetchi goes all black-and-white in shock when she sees Yumemitchi holding hands with Mametchi.
  • Continuity Nod: The way Himespetchi lands in Dream Town in her spaceship house before talking to herself, as well as her later induction into Dream School as a transfer student, is similar to how she is introduced in episode 114, her debut appearance in the anime.
  • Faint in Shock: Himespetchi faints after she sees Mametchi and Yumemitchi holding hands and thinks it's because they love each other. (Mametchi was just helping Yumemitchi when she was about to trip). Himespetchi stays unconscious for a part of the episode afterwards, and needs help from Yumemitchi and Kiraritchi to regain consciousness.
  • Freudian Slip: When Righttchi asks what she's interested in, Himespetchi very nearly answers "Mametchi" before stopping herself and quickly changing the subject to her inventions, particularly her Himespe Phone.

  • Holding Hands: Himespetchi sees Mametchi and Yumemitchi holding hands and jumps to the conclusion that they're in love with each other since she doesn't see Yumemitchi tripping and being helped back up by Mametchi.
  • Mistaken for Romance: Himespetchi doesn't realize until after she's awake again that Mametchi and Yumemitchi held hands because the former was preventing the latter from falling on the ground from tripping, not because of them having a romantic relationship.
  • Mobile Shrubbery: Himespetchi walks around while hidden under a bush to follow Mametchi, Yumemitchi, and Kiraritchi.
  • New Transfer Student: Much like in her debut episode, Himespetchi is inducted into Dream School as a transfer student.
