They accidently slipped their tongues and revealed themselves as the real culprits of Miina's abduction. Takashi's Group listened as the teachers revealed their true intention.

Shinji, Tadashi Katou and Asuka were seen fleeing away at the same direction. The group was stunned when Akira annouced the Argentavises to come and get him. Because of Akira's scarifice, Ken Tanaka, Shinji, Tadashi and Shuu led an counterattack. The rest of the group joined in and by before night the Argentavises left the camp.

The next day, after burying Ken, Murata, Matsushita and Takao Sugimasa, she is seen when Shirou calls everyone out into the water, explaining what had killed their friends without any external or internal injuries.

Asuka hasn't gotten much abilities from the rest, however she has been shown like Akira has done before to renew everyones strength and hope in her own way-- through song.

Tooru and Rei commented she had a nice voice.


  • (To Tooru Rinzai ) "I-I'm fine. Everyone's with me... this is nothing."
  • (To Kanako Oomori ) "But... I wasn't able to bring back any water, so... this is entirely my fault. It's just like Momoka-san said... it would've really been better if I had died! I'm not strong like Shuu-kun was... I'm not smart like Shirou-kun is... I'm not brave like Akira-san is..."
  • (Singing to everyone) "Your tears will make you stronger, like flowers that bloom is asphalt. Don't be afraid of everything you see. Tomorrow will come just for you..."
  • (To Shiraishi and Arisa) "It's okay... There's nothing to be scared of! We've already captured Takashi! See? We have more than 30 people. You're also friends with Miki and Yasunori-kun, right? They're with us too. So let's all go together, alright?"
