A magical girl who has been integrated with the rumor of Chelation Land. She spends her time completely relaxed, protecting the theme park that rids its visitors of all worries. Her suggestions for the food court menu impressed all the other Rumors.
The Doppel of domestic harmony. Its form is ham.
“My, have you heard? Who’d you hear it from? The Rumor of the Doppel of Harmony! It’s a cute widdle piggy that got as big as a balloon, and grants every desire of its master’s relatives! Its luxurious, sparkling body is a symbol of great wealth, protecting its family’s harmony day in and day out! But its master’s far from thrilled about it. She’s totally grumpy about how it looks. She’d rather keep this embarrassing thing far from anyone’s view. It’s a rumor that EVERYONE in Kamihama is talking about! Nooo, look awaaay!”
The Doppel of Camaraderie. Its form is ham.
Have you heard? Has anybody told you? The Rumor of the Doppel of Camaraderie! It's a little pig that's grown nice and plump, capable of granting wishes for its master's family. It represents great wealth with its grand, glittering body, and ensures her family's wealth in the years to come! However, the master of this piggy doesn't much care for it, it actually puts her in quite the grumpy mood. "It's way too embarrassing to let anyone see it!" she says, so she hides it. It's a hot rumor in Kamihama! No, stop, don't look!
Felicia and Tsuruno are talking to Tsuruno's father at their restaurant, Banbanzai. Felicia is telling him that she is quitting her part time job there. Tsuruno's dad thinks it's due to school and wishes her luck, then turns to Tsuruno and tells her how worried he was that she didn't come home last night. When he heard she wasn't at school either he began to panic. Tsuruno assures him she's ok, then tells him she's not going to go to school anymore. Not only that, she claims she's never going to go home again either now that she's found a place she feels completely safe in. Before Tsuruno's dad can react, Tsuruno runs out the door with Felicia right behind her. Tsuruno's dad chases after them but loses them almost immediately. He recognizes the look on her face and figures that something terrible must have happened to her because he's seen that look on her face once before.
The girls make it all the way to the train station. Felicia asks Tsuruno why she said the things she did to her dad. Tsuruno herself isn't entirely sure. Her heart feels like it's floating, and she doesn't feel like herself anymore. Before she knows it, she and Felicia make their way to the Magius' headquarters. Sana is there as well and all three of them want to do something to contribute to Magius. Mifuyu urges them to remember their true feelings. She transforms into her magical girl state, saying she never expected to use her illusions to heal someone. She casts an illusion on Tsuruno, and takes her back to her restaurant Banbanzai. She asks Tsuruno to remember the time she first met Yachiyo and herself and how she always wanted to be the strongest for the sake of her family. But Tsuruno doesn't care about that anymore, and now she only wants the power to achieve what she can for Magius. Seeing how it's not working, Mifuyu changes her illusion so they are now standing inside Yachiyo's home. She reminds Tsuruno how relived she'd feel whenever she was there, but Tsuruno doesn't feel that relief now. She doesn't know why it feels weird to be there again, and asks Mifuyu if she knows why. Mifuyu is taken aback and asks why she would know the answer. Tsuruno reminds Mifuyu that she was the first to leave Mikazuki Villa and then she joined Magius. Realizing she has no answer to that, Mifuyu ends the illusions and Tsuruno finds herself back at Magius headquarters. Mifuyu can't understand why or how Tsuruno has changed so much as she herself still has some regrets at leaving. She wonders if maybe Tsuruno's heart is paralyzed.
Thanks to Mifuyu's illusions, she was able to successfully rid Felicia and Sana of their brainwashing at least. The two are confused at where they are, when Mifuyu hears Touka and Alina walking down the hall. She warns them to pretend to still be brainwashed just as Touka and Alina enter the room. Touka beckons Tsuruno to follow her. Mifuyu begs them to tell her what they're going to do with Tsuruno. Alina casually mentions they're going to have her commit mass murder since so many Rumors have been destroyed.
Outside, Touka explains to Tsuruno that she will be in charge of a new Rumor in Daito Ward. She's to kill a ton of people in order to harvest their energy for their salvation, and should anyone try to stop the Rumor, then Tsuruno will have to fight them off. To facilitate the plan, they'll have to fuse Tsuruno with the Rumor itself. Tsuruno is eager for the assignment. Telepathically, Touka mentions to Alina how it'll be big trouble for Tsuruno if Yachiyo shows up. But what Tsuruno and them don't know is that Tsuruno will also die if the Rumor dies since she will be fused with it. With so much despair, one of Yachiyo's teammates will surely unleash their doppel, although it would be better if they lost the will to fight altogether before that.
The three girls head to the abandoned amusement park that will be the basis for the new Rumor. Nemu meets them there, and her Rumor spreading creation describes the new theme park Rumor. They explain to Tsuruno that it will be the kind of relaxing park that no one would ever want to leave. At the same time, it's her job to execute anyone who can't fit inside or tries to interfere. Since they collect energy from the shift in people's emotions, Tsuruno also must terrify them as much as possible before killing them all. Nemu encourages Tsuruno to focus on her routine work and not to worry or think about anything. As Tsuruno thinks about these words, she remembers Mel and regrets not helping Magius achieve salvation for everyone sooner.
Nemu leaves the theme and design of the park to Tsuruno, reminding her it should be a place of comfort that no one would ever want to leave. Tsuruno isn't sure about what kind of amusement park to make it, and Nemu asks if she ever went to a park where she felt relaxed. Tsuruno remembers an amusement park she once went to with her friends. It was a day of fun where she forgot all her worries. She remembers the day she learned about Mel's death and how much she blamed herself for not being there. Despite her team's insistence that there was nothing anyone could have done, Tsuruno couldn't shake off the blame she felt. Realizing she had left her backpack at Yachiyo's house, Tsuruno heads back. She can see that Momoko and the others hadn't gone home yet and listens in on their conversation. Momoko, Mifuyu and Yachiyo are talking about what had happened and what the implications were. Not wanting to eavesdrop, Tsuruno finds her bag and quietly leaves. She believes that they needed her to keep smiling so they could stay strong.
Back at home, Tsuruno thinks back about what she heard and knows that they're keeping something from her. She believes they think she's too weak to learn the truth about what happened. As Tsuruno thinks about Mel, she begins to cry. Amidst her tears, Tsuruno tells herself she needs to keep smiling for the sake of the others.
A few days later, Tsuruno is battling a Witch with Yachiyo, Momoko, and Mifuyu. Distracted, Tsuruno lets her guard down and is almost defeated by the Witch until Mifuyu steps in and lands the finishign blow. Yachiyo hands Tsuruno a Grief Seed, noting how dark her soul gem has become. Tsuruno didn't think she used up so much magic, but Yachiyo informs her that her state of mind also has an effect on her Soul Gem. She tells her not to push herself so hard to make up for the loss of Mel. Momoko encourages her to stay calm now more than ever, but Yachiyo hands Momoko a Grief Seed as well. It seems Momoko's Soul Gem had grown dark as well. Mifuyu had already experienced the loss of Kanae, but Mel's passing hurts even more. With all that's happened, Yachiyo suggests they put off Witch hunting tomorrow and instead suggests they meet up at Mikazuki Villa. She knows they're still mourning the loss of Mel, but she remembers that Mel loved how happy everyone at Mikazuka Villa was. Yachiyo suggests they spend the day at an amusement park and cheer up for Mel's sake.
At first Tsuruno felt weird having fun without Mel, but after awhile everyone genuinely enjoyed themselves. On the way home, Yachiyo and Momoko tease Mifuyu for screaming while riding a merry-go-round. In her defense, it was a high-speed merry-go-round. As they laugh, Tsuruno has the same blank look on her face. Yachiyo tries talking to Tsuruno, but she is too distracted to answer at first. It wasn't that Tsuruno was worn out, she had just had too much fun that day. They had thrown themselves at all the rides and attractions in order to forget their sorrows.
The flashback ends. Tsuruno had been lost in thought for some time, and Nemu asks if she remembered anything, Tsuruno describes the amusement park her and her friends went to, and how she could relax because all she had to do was board the rides and sit back without having to think. As much as she loved being at Mikazuki Villa, she could never really relax there. She felt it was her job to keep smiling for everyone else's sake, and if she didn't keep it together all the time then everything would come crashing down. She couldn't even bring herself to find out the truth about what happened to Mel, since she was sure her world would come tumbling down. So she forced herself to smile and didn't ask any questions. With that in mind, Nemu decides the theme of the park should be a place where you can sit back and relax. Now that the theme had been decided on, the Rumor was complete and almost immediately sprang into existence around them. With that, the three Magius head off.
Tsuruno looks around at her new domain, but the only thing in sight is the Ferris wheel. She wonders how she's supposed to create all the rides and attractions by herself when a couple of Chelation Land mascots pop up. They introduce themselves, eager to help. The big Ferris wheel also introduces itself to its new manager. With so many employees and having the responsibility to ward off intruders, it seems Tsuruno has her work cut out for her. She's eager to work hard now so she can relax later. She then remembers what Alina said about fusing with the Rumor to make things easier. One of the mascots suggests she fuse with the Rumor so she can work without sleeping (unless she wants to sleep of course). Tsuruno transforms into her magical girl state and fuses with the Rumor Mascot that volunteered, transforming into Rumor Tsuruno. Other than a big burst of energy, Tsuruno feels much the same.
Tsurumor is ready to design the park, but she's already forgotten the theme. One of the mascots reminds her it's supposed to be a stress-free theme park where you can relax to your heart's content. Since it should be relaxing, Tsurumor is tempted to leave the theme park as it is. The mascot is shocked to hear this, and tells Tsurumor that the guests will get bored quickly and want to leave. Tsurumor decides to take it a little more seriously and suggests setting up a merry-go-round for the mascots to spin on and a roller coaster. The Ferris wheel is a little irked his rival will be there, but promises to try to get along. Next, Tsurumor wants to set up a restaurant but doesn't know how. The rumors explain to Tsurumor that she needs to only imagine it and it will appear. Rumor magic is powered at the cost of human lives. Tsurumor doesn't get that last bit, but she does manage to conjure up most of the theme park just by thinking about it.
With most of the park seemingly finished, Tsurumor considers taking it easy before she realizes there's no real place to relax in the park. It's just a bunch of rides and a place to eat, so she decides to add a spa, stores for shopping, and a cafe to help her future quests relax and have less of a reason to leave. As she is about to think up the rest of the park, the mascots warn Tsurumor that she will become a part of the theme park once its creation is complete and won't be able to return to the human world. Despite their warnings, Tsurumor claims she has no regrets and finishes imagining the park with the mascots and Ferris wheel praising her hard work and efforts.
The park is now complete, but there is no food or drinks stocked in any of the shops. While a drink menu is easy enough, a food menu is much trickier. At first Tsurumor considers making a menu much like Banbanzai's, but doesn't want to put in so much hard work so she instead decides to make a menu featuring various comfort foods. And the main star of her menu will be a hot pot. The Ferris wheel is dismayed to hear that the hot pot won't spin, but still thinks it'll be the perfect menu item for a relaxing park. As Tsurumor imagines the food and drinks into existence, she's suddenly reminded of everyone's favorite mug back at Mikazuki Villa. She brushes it off and tries to imagine the food into existence before she's reminded of another memory from Mikazuki Villa. Once more she instead focuses on the task at hand and the park is truly complete. The mascots and Ferris wheel wish Tsurumor the best of luck on her new job as manager.

Within the amusement park inside the rumor, there is a popular specialty on the menu. Eating the hot foods in boiling broth together makes any bad feeling you might have float away with the steam. But why a hot pot, you may ask? Even the park manager doesn't know.
