Who could possibly be controlling this new force? What is their motive? After her dad goes missing, Shiina is more determined than ever to find out. But once he is found, her cruel mother Misono Tamai pays him a visit, and she's interested in nothing but giving all the juicy details over to the trigger-happy Japanese government.

Afterwards Akira sees a television news report about the supposed "disappearance" of Komori and, knowing the truth about his death, decides to leave a simple bouquet outside his house.

Led by Sudo, laid-back Bungo Takano and stubborn Satomi Ozawa - plus apparent bystander Mamiko Kuri who Sudo claims has a dragon - target the Japanese air force officials who are testing ammo nearby.

And indeed he does, riding on his roommate Norio Koga's menacing yellow dragon. Shiina is immediately suspicious but Tsurumaru claims that he isn't the writer of the letter Akira got, nor is he the bearer of any of the evil dragons that may have been spotted.

Tsurumaru and Norio say they do not know, but Shiina is more determined than ever to communicate with her creature, and it seems like nothing will stop her, for better or worse. Later, to relax, Shiina and Akira decide to take a peaceful fishing trip with Sudo.
