However, the elders would never approve of that, so he needs to get rid of them, and for that, he freed Aki. He asks Aki to join him, but at that moment, Mahiru bursts into the office, spewing her hate for everyone. Aki starts to fight her, but Magatsuhi is able to get the barrier up right as Aki just misses her with his attack. However, Mahiru doesn't kill Aki because she doesn't want to upset Kyohei. Koushiro meets with Kyohei to ask him about his connection with Mahiru, and Kyohei starts to tell the story of eight years ago, when he and Aki met Mahiru. They find a cave and go in to explore it. There, they find a strange Kakashi covered in moss. The Kakashi activates and captures Aki, but Kyohei cuts him loose with Kukuri. The three Seki team up to try to fight it, but are unable to do any real damage. Aki manages to get a hit in, but it's not deep enough and Kuramitsuha takes a beating. However, Kyohei is able to get a clean hit in while it's charging its laser. Aki realizes that the Kakashi can consume minds, which is why it could move without a Seki. The Kakashi is still moving, though, and it blasts all of th

Kyouhei vows to protect her, but she refuses his help. She later runs into Aki, who compares himself to her a bit, in that they both rejected in the village. The next day, someone writes on the chalkboard that Chihaya committed adultery, which causes her to run away from the school, but returns after running into Aki again. Kyouhei chases after her, and ends up talking with Aki about her. Chihaya's reputation continues to deteriorate and she is once again approached by Atsushi, but Aki appears to protect her. She reveals to Aki that the writing on the chalkboard was true, and that she had indirectly caused the father's son to get hit by a car. Chihaya tells Aki that he reminds her of that boy and proceeds to kiss him. They then make love. She asks Aki to leave the village with her, but he refuses, saying that he has to regain Kuramitsuha. The next day, Chihaya finds out that someone took pictures of her with Aki and they had been given to the principal, who fires her. That night, Chihaya hears Nono, but hears it whimper and she rushes out to check on it. She is greeted by Atsushi and Kuramitsuha, who kidnap her. Aki finds the dog dead and a note sa

By Hyuga's suggestion, Takao considers joining Gunzō and the others' side while Haruna and Kirishima are contacted by Kongou who asks for their intentions. While Haruna affirms that she will not return to the Fleet of Fog for Makie's sake, Kirishima claims that she will continue by their side for the sake of gathering info.
