After running towards the second seal ground, she encounters Aria, who declares that the Logos plan to release the Onikirimaru to prevent it from being resealed. When Takuma and Mahiro come, Tamaki tells them to stand down, vowing to Aria that she will not give up on preventing the Logos from succeeding in their plan. Aria leaves after saying that she will bring the Logos back at the second seal ground on the following night. Takuma and Mahiro express their gratitude to Tamaki for how she handled the situation.
