Kido approves of Hyuse's enrollment, but he has conditions; the first being to permit Chika to go on the expedition regardless of whether the rest of Tamakoma Second is on it or not. Kido plans on using Chika's massive trion as a power source for the ship, allowing for more travel and larger capacity. Kinuta is worried about Aftokrator hunting down Chika again. Kido assures him if that is the case, Chika will rest in the ship, which means that she would not be able to learn anything about Rinji. Chika agrees to this, since it is necessary for Tamakoma Second to join the expedition. Kido tells them of the second requirement; becoming at least B-Rank #2 in 3 matches. He plans on having the expedition test earlier, and will allow some B-Rank teams to apply. The meeting ends, with Hyuse vowing to bring Tamakoma Second to their goal. Karasawa asks Rindō if Osamu planned the change in conversation, to which Rindō confirms. On February 22, Hyuse enrolls in Border, which coincides with the Round 6 matches.
