Riku and Kai go back to Mui’s orphanage-type home with the other kids and stay there for the night. They learn that a certain pharmaceutical company is supporting the home, and that Mui is even getting medicine regularly from a man in a suit.

Riku is shy at first about Mui not having a leg but later overcomes it and become friends with her.

Riku finds Mui on the streets looking at a metal detector, which she wants to buy. Riku buys it for her, and gives her the money in his pocket before sending her off in a taxi towards her home. In the end though, Kai and Riku chase after her after Riku learns that the metal detector is used to find land mines. Luckily, they find her safe and sound in her village.

The two stay there for the night, but Riku and Mui hears a certain sound. When they go outside to investigate, they’re kidnapped by a group of men led by the man from the pharmaceutical company. Kai, who was captured along with Riku and Mui, escapes from their prison and frees his brother. But with the container of Diva open, the boys are surrounded by a bunch of red-hooded children who are attracted to her singing. Saya arrives the scene and Riku is comforting a scared Mui, who is developing cracks in her skin. Kai finds them, but after seeing Mui, he pushes her away. Riku protects her and claims there’s nothing wrong with her. Mui and the other children seem to have transformed into Chiropterans and hold the two boys down, ready to eat them. They pause when Saya gets up. In the aftermath, Mui and the other children are put in cages, and the group is hoping that they can return them to their previous form.

    • That's a thread left untied. Julia must be researching on such things but our dear author forgot to wrap it up.
    • I disagree, Wings. Although I haven't finished watching the anime, Mui is a minor character so there was no necessity for the anime staff...
