Set between episodes four and five, Yuri orders the SSS to pretend to enjoy the day hyperactively, as part of "Operation High Tension Syndrome". Yuri hopes that Angel would lead them straight to God, and failure of the operation results in a week-long fasting. Everyone disperses with their fake enthusiasm, and a "tension meter" rates their excitement levels for every activity and outburst. Eventually when gathered up, they have a sports festival, involving the NPCs too. Meanwhile, Yuri oversees the whole operation, until Angel wanders in to intervene after Shiina's interruption. Angel moves on to "report", and the SSS follow her to an underground greenhouse, where they assumed housed God. Instead, they find an ordinary garden, tended by Angel. Vexed, Yuri imposes the fasting and ends up starving the SSS.
