Those at Tamakoma Branch prepare for Yuri Rindō's and Mikhael Cronin's return, with Kizaki being unusually nervous. The two arrive, and introduce themselves to Tamakoma Second. Cronin meets Hyuse, who is to be disguised as the former's son, but decides to instead have Hyuse act as his nephew. Osamu reveals that Kageura Unit, Azuma Unit, and Suzunari First are their upcoming opponents in the Rank Battles. Usami also mentions that Tamakoma Second is B-Rank #4 with 30 points, 4 points away from #2. Despite the power of the other top B-Rank teams, Osamu is confident that Tamakoma Second can make it. Cronin takes Hyuse to choose Triggers. Hyuse decides to have Kogetsu, Senkū, and Shield as his main Triggers, while Viper, Escudo, Shield, and Bagworm. Osamu has decided to reside at Tamakoma Branch in order to be closer to HQ. As he looks at the door, he notices the name Kido on it.
