Upon scouting out the location of Iona’s event, Ruko states that her wish is to free Yuzuki, Tama, and all the LRIGs and return them to their normal lives. Whilst Yuzuki states it would be not be able to be granted, Tama feels she may know a way to return LRIGs to normal, with Yuzuki remembering Mayu stating that some LRIGs may possess special powers. As Yuzuki warns Ruko that going through with such a wish would mean never being able to see her family again, Hitoe appears and retrieves Yuzuki, stating that she will participate in Iona’s event. Upon arriving home, Ruko overhears her grandmother, Hatsu, speaking on the phone with her mother, before asking about her wish. On the day of the event, Tama voices her objection to Ruko going to battle, as she is uncertain on whether her wish will be properly granted. Arriving at the event, Ruko, Hitoe, and the other Selectors are greeted by Iona, who announces the event will take the form of a tournament, with the winner getting the chance to battle against Iona. As Ruko fights her way through the tournament, she soon comes up against Hitoe. Upon hearing how Ruko wants to battle for fun like they used to, Yuzuki tries to get Hitoe to recall her memories.
