After some examination, it is confirmed that although still asleep, Manaka is in good health and should wake up soon. Watching Miuna next to Hikari while talking with the uncounscious Manaka, Chisaki realizes that Miuna also likes him as well. Some time later, while tending to Isamu, Chisaki hears from him a part of the Ofunehiki legend she never had heard before. Back at Tsumugu’s house, Kaname questions him about what he intends to do with the data obtained regarding Miuna and the others and learns that he and his professor must show results tot he scientific community to ensure that their research on Shioshishio will keep being funded. Later that night, Chisaki has some wine with Tsumugu and while she is asleep, both Tsumugu and Kaname express to each other their feelings for Chisaki. In the next day, Chisaki attempts to return to Shioshishio by herself but is dragged by the currents until Hikari appears to help. As they arrive at the village, Chisaki reveals to Hikari that according to Isamu, the young woman who offered herself to the Sea God could not forget the loved one she left behind at the surface and in the end, the god let her go, for a price. Certain that this must be related to Manaka having lost her Ena, Hikari decides to look for Uroko and confront him about it on a later occasion, and he leaves to return back to the surface with Chisaki, who realizes that she is still in love with him. However, one week passes, and Manaka is yet to awaken.
