On the morning of December 28, Yūta finds he is too late to stop Meika hacking into the sattelite just as Guriko planned, giving Qmay the ability to launch missiles at the meteor to steer it towards Earth. Deeming the mission to save mankind to be a failura, Chiranosuke has Yuuta make preparations for his next self. The next day on December 29, the day where Ito was originally scheduled to die, Yuuta and Mikatan receive a text calling them to the shrine, where they come face to face with Guriko, who had taken Ito hostage to lure them out. Returning Ito to them, Guriko states that the only way Yuuta and Mikatan can survive the meteor crash is if they become Ws using Muhi's regeneration ability before taking her leave. Just as Yuuta is at the brink of giving up altogether, he thinks of his friends and becomes determined to protect them, asking Meika for her help in saving humanity.
