#1 - Toys Have Arrived from the Demon World / We Played Doctor

Beelzebub Season 1 - Episode 6

The mark on Oga's arm goes back to its small size, much to the chagrin of Hildegarde who destroys his games console. She brings a play room for Beelzebub to play in, but upon building it, it turns out to be a magical cage that both she and Oga get stuck inside. The only way to get out is to have Beelzebub solve a block puzzle toy, but he just ends up breaking it. Frustrated, Oga utilises his Zebel power to punch his way out, though it makes his mark grow big again. Rummaging through a bag of demon world toys, Beelzebub opens a chest that transforms Oga and Takayuki into nurses, which can only be reverted by helping Beelzebub play Doctor. Oga decides to use the opportunity to try and do good deeds and get rid of his mark, though has trouble handling the demonic medical supplies. After some failed attempts at treating some of the students, they change back after discovering an actually useful tool on Beelzebub's costume, but accidentally triggers an explosive that negates all the work Oga did getting his mark down to size.

#2 - We've Come To Kidnap You

Cat Planet Cuties Season 1 - Episode 4

The episode opens on a concert hall filled with members of Underside of Kitten Paw, a fanatic group obsessed with cats. Their leader, Antonia Morfenoss, shows pictures of Elis and declares her to be their new idol of worship. When Kio wakes up, he walks in on Elis dancing and being abnormally energetic due to having smelled silver vine spirits, an Asian plant reported to be stronger than catnip. Dr. Dyureru appears and explains that Elis will soon be going into heat, causing her to have heightened senses, and congratulates Elis on having a mating partner on her first heat, much to Manami's outrage and Kio's embarrasment. She also assigns Elis a mission to go into Tokyo and "observe the human economy, technology, and culture", which, according to Elis, means to bring back a bunch of toys and games as souvenirs. On the train back, members of Underside of Kitten Paw separate Elis and Kio from Manami and Aoi, putting them to sleep and showing the sleeping Elis live to the screaming fans of Underside of Kitten Paw.
