Mineru offers Koushi a job as Dormitory Mother. Atena, who fears men, refuses to accept Koushi and moves out. Not wanting Atena to lose her home, Koushi leaves instead. Finding him sleeping on a bench and realizing her selfishness, Atena brings Koushi back, but passes out after he accidentally gropes her.Koushi begins cleaning but discovers the dorm is known locally as “Problem Dorm” due to the girls odd behaviours; Mineru performs scientific experiments and often produces toxic substances, and Frey is a cosplayer who dresses people in costume, often against their will, plus all the girls seem to enjoy being partially clothed or entirely naked.

Serene makes Koushi a bizarre offer to fix the floor if he becomes her servant. Half asleep Koushi agrees and Serene kisses him. The next morning the floor is fixed and Koushi worries over a strange dream he had.Atena is concerned Koushi and the girls are friends so quickly. While shopping with him Koushi praises the progress she has made with men since they met, which she appreciates, then realises Koushi made the other girls feel the same way and flees, only for Koushi to save her by pretending she is his sister when she bumps into two men. Atena surprisingly finds the idea of being his sister intensely appealing and insists he call her “big sis”. The moment is ruined when her skirt falls down, accidentally showing her panties; she panics and falls with her butt in his face. Regardless she understands why the others already trust him and decides to help by protecting him from the immoral behaviour of the others, though this leads to the others wanting to be his sisters too.
