While the girls fight Silver Gospel, Ichika has a dream where he meets a young girl and a warrior woman who asks him if he wants strength, which he agrees as he wants to protect his comrades. As the battle continues to rage, Houki manages to cut one of Gospel’s wings and sees it fall into the ocean, only for it to re-emerge in its Second Shift form with “angel wings” and proceeds to to take down Houki and the rest. Houki is soon awakened by Ichika, who is now in Byakushiki’s Second Shift form, Byakushiki Setsura, and gives Houki a hair ribbon as a gift as he still remembers July 7th as her birthday. With their combined strengths, Ichika and the girls finally defeat Gospel, with Ichika giving it the finishing blow. As they return back to their hotel, Chifuyu scolds them for defying orders but allows them some R&R as a reward for stopping Gospel.
