Shigi tells the others about how he and Kuno first met. Minato and Musubi take them to see Seo, who gives them information about the Disciplinary Squad and other dangerous Ashikabi in the city. After some "prompting" from Miya, Seo agrees to help them escape the city. Later that evening, a party is held at Izumo Inn. Despite knowing that Tsukiumi's absence greatly weakens their chances of success, she refuses to help Shigi and Kuno escape, believing their actions to be cowardly.
