Minutes later however, he begins to eat as Kisara catches him up with the latest information. Before they can continue their chat, Enju interrupts and tells Rentaro that she has something for him, rushing out the room. Once Enju leaves, Kisara explains that Shougen was the one who saved his life by bringing him to the hospital. Kisara then asks Rentaro if he met with Kagetane, to which he responds to affirmatively whilst tightening his grip.

Out of the blue, the phone rings, with Seitenshi on the other line asking for Rentaro's help, but he refuses when he reminds her of his defeat at Kagetane's hands. She reveals on the phone that the weapon in Kagetane's hand can destroy the whole world. However, before Rentaro can hear her, Kisara grabs the phone and ends the call. Afterwards, she tells Rentaro to come outside with her, and once there, she repeats Seitenshi's words, mortifying him. Kisara begs Rentaro to fight for the world as she cries, when Enju walks in with a note saying "Good luck at work." Thus, Enju states, it's the reason why she will work hard and protect everyone, telling Rentaro that she is ready to go whenever he is. Before leaving, Rentaro tells Kisara to inform Seitenshi that he will face Kagetane once more, with Kisara remembering the time Rentaro saved her and waving goodbye as she puts all her trust on him.

Rentaro and Enju soon leave and reach the place of departure, where they encounter Shougen and his Initiator. Rentaro thanks him for saving him, but it solely angers Shougen who tells him to go back home. Parting ways, Enju and Rentaro head towards their departure location as they walk side by side.
