After enduring the Norito attacks of Ichiya and Kaiha, Benitsubasa and Haihane are reunited with Natsuo who arrives carrying the unconscious Karasuba. Natsuo powers up their Noritos just in time for them to counterattack.
Matsu informs Minato and the other nearby Ashikabis of the situation inside the Sekirei ship, where the resonating Jinkis are building up to a power overload that will sink the island and kill everyone on it. Mikogami tries to get the four-team pitched battle stopped but the participants are too fired-up to notice. Mutsu suggests that he might be able to use his Norito to stabilize the island, if Matsu assists him with guidance; Matsu and Minato agree to help, and Mutsu asks Mikogami to power up his Norito. Meanwhile Kazehana airlifts the last of the invading soldiers off the island, dropping them in the sea to be picked up by nearby ships. Musubi had also been evacuating soldiers (by tossing them out to sea) but had left to look for Minato after Natsuo picked up Karasuba.
The plan works and the island begins to rise, supported by Mutsu's raising the sea floor. But it seems this last surge of power was the final straw; inside the ship the Jinki begin to escape their containers, while back on the surface the Ashikabis mysteriously collapse.
