Akuto ponders if the hairpiece Kena wears is the same one he gave to her as an orphaned child. Fujiko wants to control a beast of her own, obtaining an demon beast egg after slaying a slug beast. An easygoing Kena still skips class constantly, much to Akuto's worry. Akuto does not realize that Junko actually has feelings for him, especially when Akuto himself is trying to persuade Kena to attend class again. Kena steals the demon beast egg from Fujiko in her sleep, soon hatching into a two-headed chicken beast. Akuto tries to attack the beast, but it evades. Hiroshi quickly annihilates the beast before it causes further damage to the city. Korone later tells a depressed Junko to discuss an omiai to Akuto with her parents.
