The fight between Tsukiumi and the 'veiled' Sekirei (Uzume) ends abruptly due to the interference of Sekirei #3, Kazehana. Musubi takes Minato to meet Kuno and her Ashikabi, Haruka. Since Kuno is so weak, Haruka has decided to leave the city, but they have met many obstacles. With Musubi's encouragement, Minato agrees to help them. That night, Kazehana and Uzume stumble into Minato's room in a drunken stupor, causing Minato much grief with his Sekirei in the morning.
