It's Nice to Have Friends...Right?
Rena discovers a magic mirror in the junkyard and takes it home. She makes a wish to have lots of kyute friends and winds up summoning Kitty, Purin, Cinnamon, and Kirimi-chan into the house. Kitty speaks on behalf of the group and says they are inhabitants of the world of love and dreams; they were playing together before suddenly ending up in Hinamizawa.
When Hanyuu arrives with a shrunken down Rika and Satoko, the group sets out to undo their wishes. They head to Furude Shrine to find more crystals to power the mirror, with Kitty and her friends following the club throughout Hinamizawa to see that other villagers are shrinking to kyute size because of Rena's other wishes. Once they get to the shrine however, a tsukuyami appears and devours the mirror, growing to a bigger size. Kitty gives her support to the club members, and she and her friends transform into outfits for the club members to wear, with Rena wearing Kitty.
The empowered club members defeat the giant tsukuyami and retrieve the mirror, with Kitty and everyone turning back to normal. Kitty and friends bid farewell, disappearing when Rena wishes for them to go home.
"Hello Kitty" Rena Ryuugu
The club learns that a ghost may be haunting the school and has been playing a piano at night for a few nights. When they investigate, they find it was just Kitty. Kitty explains that she and her friends returned to Hinamizawa and ended up near the school, with Kitty having fun playing the piano. The club is relieved the ghost story was fake, and Miyuki asks why Kitty never said anything when she arrived a few days ago. Kitty is confused since she only came the night before, and the club realizes the other nights may have involved a real ghost.
