Warmth, Once More.
Kaoru and Natsune arrive with Mayune Awayuki, who is eager to save her little sister. Himeno, along with the three, try their best to break Mawata free from the Great Tree of Fenrir, striving to never give up. Mannen, Hajime and Shin help evacuate the city, while Kei and Go fend off lurking demon larvae. Sasame interjects and tells Himeno that she was absentminded of how much pain that Mawata has suffered all this time. Hayate decides to part from Himeno and take on Sasame by himself. Himeno climbs to the top of the tree and confronts Takako to be willing to forgive the betrayal and forget the past. Himeno manages to past through the barrier and convinces Mawata to release her hatred, thereby freeing herself. As Sasame defeats Hayate, he hesitates when Takako orders him to kill Himeno. When Takako prepares to kill herself via the vines and roots of the tree, Sasame shields her from the attack.
