"Ah! Catastrophe Arrives. An Auspicious Sign Stands?" "Aa! Wazawai Kitarite Chabashira Tatsu?" (ああっ災い来たりて茶柱立つっ?) Aired: April 29, 2005
Marller takes possession of Megumi and summons Senbei, the god of unhappiness and poverty, in the hope of separating Belldandy and Keiichi. The earth spirit who shares Megumi's apartment does his best to help her, but fails, and is forced to make his way to Belldandy disguised as a teddy bear. Meanwhile, Senbei and Marller try to bring misfortune on Keiichi, but Keiichi seems to be having a very lucky day, and each attempt is deflected by a corresponding stroke of good fortune. Things come to a head when Marller seals Belldandy's powers and Senbei causes the car Keiichi is driving to burst into flames. With the arrival of the earth spirit to explain events, Belldandy is able to exorcise Marller from Megumi and to use her powers to save Keiichi.
