I thought net games and reality were different? (ネトゲとリアルは違うと思った？ Netoge to Riaru wa Chigau to Omotta? ) is the third episode of the Netoge no Yome wa Onnanoko Janai to Omotta? series. It aired on April 21, 2016.
"During their first club meeting, Akane is delighted by her faster machine, Ako gets a lesson in dressing for the occasion, and Kyoh is prevented from using her premium equipment. However, the line between game and reality becomes more blurred."
Homeroom teacher Yui tells Hideki that Ako has been attending school more and opening up a little thanks to him, and tasks him to watch over her. As the Net Game club finishes another gaming session, Akane dotes on how the club's activities have blurred the distinction between fantasy and reality for Ako even more. The club has a limited time to find a faculty advisor or be disbanded. After Rusian consults Nekohime for advice, Hideki tries his luck to reassure Ako of the distinction, only to later have an overly jealous Ako stalk Rusian in the game talking to Nekohime. Ako stops going to school again, but later appears at the guild hub telling players that she is going to have an offline meeting with an unknown stranger. Akane and Kyo confront Hideki to try and stop Ako as Hideki admits that spending time with the real Ako has made him develop feelings for her outside the game. Hideki runs to the contact place to persuade Ako to not meet the person but then Yui shows up. Hideki discovers Yui is actually Nekohime. Kyo recruits Yui to be the club's new advisor.
