In the mountainous forestry of greater Tokyo, Honey flees the clearing where the bear is having a standoff with Mr. Important and the Chairman. Though she is unable to find the Chairman, Honey stumbles across a young boy carrying fishing equipment and completely oblivious to the nearby bear. In the forest clearing, the bear sees Mr. Important seated with legs up and underwear removed in front of the prone Chairman. The Chairman deduces that the bear is unable to attack them due to it's fear of the strange figure they produced. In the cavalry battle, Gakuto and Hana panic at their imminent loss as Andre grips Meiko's headband. In the meantime, Meiko regains the resolve to survive in order to protect Mari and give her the song. Though Kiyoshi offers to sing the song to Mari, she insists that Meiko sing the song to herself. In desperation at the angels' refusal to release her, Meiko seizes the angels surrounding her with brute strength.
