Izumi greets Karasuma at the viewing of the rank battle. Izumi asks Karasuma how he feels about the loss of Hyuse. Karasuma is confident that Tamakoma Second has contingency plans, though he still has concerns.
Yuba debates whether he should assist Obishima in fighting Minamisawa or go after Inukai to prevent Ninomiya Unit from uniting. Obishima urges him to go after Inukai, so he leaves her. Yuba engages Inukai in a firefight. With his superior speed, Yuba overwhelms Inukai, so Inukai flees. Osamu leaves Chika on a roof, instructing her not to use Meteor, but rather, to use Hound. Tonooka uses the opportunity to attempt to snipe Chika, but Chika blocks his shot. As the roof on which she was perched had walls around except for one area, there was only one direction from which he could shoot; as such, Tonooka's position is revealed. Chika launches Hound at him. Tonooka jumps off the building to avoid it but he gets shot by Oki in the process. Chika resolves to not miss another target. Oki instructs Minamisawa to lure Obishima towards him. While he is on his way to intercept Minamisawa, he gets attacked by Ninomiya's mixed bullets. While he attempts to dodge them, he gets bisected by Tsuji. The commentators note that the tactic employed was atypical of Ninomiya Unit as Ninomiya prefers keeping a member of his close to him when using mixed bullets.
Yūma joins the battle between Obishima and Minamisawa. While Minamisawa is hoping he and Obishima can team up against Yūma, Obishima exploits Minamisawa's optimism by feigning attacking Yūma, but at the last moment, fires at Minamisawa. With that, Yūma and Obishima engage each other.
