Aika arrives at a barbecue party with a beautiful new hairstyle, and when Alicia praises it, she is greatly pleased as it represents, she tells Akari, a 'new me'. A little later her hair catches fire from a grill, and after Akira puts it out Aika runs away to cry. At home at Himeya Company, as Akari and Alice help trim away her damaged hair, Aika says she'd been growing it as long as Alicia's hair in order to become more like Alicia, but now it's impossible. Akira overhears this and says yes, it's impossible for her to become an undine like Alicia. Aika tries to run away again, but Akira stops her and explains that it's impossible to impersonate someone else, and she should simply aim to become the best undine in Neo-Venezia by being herself. The next day, Aika cuts her hair very short to express her confident new self.
