Ema leaves the restaurant to review Tamakoma Second's logs. Arafune asks Yūma if Chika is incapable of shooting people. Kitazoe is insistent that Chika is unable to shoot, but Tōma believes otherwise. He argues that Chika can shoot people if she absolutely must; she simply prefers not to. After the conversation, Yūma returns to Tamakoma's base and informs Osamu about his discussion with the others. When asked what he was doing, Osamu says that he has been looking over their next opponents' records and how they have been improving which lead him into thinking of getting a new Trigger.
The next day, Osamu asks Usami for her opinion on the subject matter. She then explains that each Trigger one has uses a certain amount of the User's trion and given Osamu's low trion amount, he either has to remove one of his current Triggers or have Yūma use the new Trigger instead. Yūma rejects the second solution as it will affect his fighting style. Hearing this, Usami then says that things will be alright even if Osamu doesn't make any changes as they have their new member, Hyuse, but Osamu is skeptical about it. Later in his room, Osamu can't help feeling anxious despite having a higher chance for victory.
