Ruko briefly runs into Hanayo, who tells her to keep on battling, while Iona continues to try swaying her into taking advantage of her for the sake of battling. Feeling that she only enjoyed battles when she was with Tama, Ruko tries Iona for information on Tama’s whereabouts, only learning Mayu’s name. Meanwhile, in another world, Tama desires to see Ruko again despite warnings from Mayu, who she seems to remember from somewhere. Later, Ruko learns from Yuzuki and Hitoe that Akira is spreading rumors about WIXOSS to bring out more Selectors, eventually confessing that she had fought against her. After scolding Ruko for acting on her own, Yuzuki and Hitoe state that they wouldn’t be happy if she was to disappear, even if it were for their sake, and agree to help her with her search for Tama. Later, Ruko and the others come across Chiyori being challenged by Ulith, who now wields Tama as her LRIG.
