The anime describes the plot of the episode in English as:
One day in August, the highest temperatures were recorded all over Japan. Ojisan and Takafumi were unable to think straight due to the heat. They succeed in cooling the room with magic instead of an air conditioner, but the fish head they prepared as an offering to the spirits looks unusually delicious. Ojisan realizes that this is an aftereffect of his previous transformation into a dragon as a reaction to his forced use of magic. He once again feels the risk of transformation magic. He recalls the time when, even in another world, after being transformed into the legendary blaze dragon, his spirit was taken over and he was unable to return.
In the preview trailer, the Uncle (Takehito Koyasu) tells the Elf (Haruka Tomatsu) that he is interested in ancient magical tools she has been collecting for a reason which he may be able to find a clue about his native place. The video is available for a limited time on KADOKAWA’s official YouTube channel below:
