Tachibana Mia side story (ep. 26, DVD special) (Watch+):
This special episode plays in another different timeline where some of the arc events took place but none of the girls there became Jun'ichi's girlfriend.
The first half with Mia's disturbing idea is mere comedy and I was about to write off this special as failure. To my surprise the story got its act together when Mia took that kitten home, giving Jun'ichi the opportunity to show his sister what being a nice guy is all about.
As such, still not my favorite part of the franchise but helpful for giving the unnerving brat Mia a better image in the end. Recommended only for fans of the series.
