In the main courtyard of the sports ground, a horrified Kiyoshi looks up to see angelic figures descending from a shaft of light. Though Hana notes Kiyoshi's sudden return to sanity to Mari, she is preoccupied by Meiko's sudden loss of consciousness and the bloodflow from her face. The unconscious Meiko is declared deceased at 04:30 PM, with her death likened to Kiyoshi's prior death. In Meiko's subconciousness, her infantilized soul enters an ephemeral state and experiences a continuation of an elementary school flashback.
In the park, the older Meiko sees her younger self listening to a younger Mari sing a rewritten ode to her. When the younger Meiko thanks Mari for making the song and praises her genius, Mari replies that the kindness of the song was born from Meiko's goodness. The older Meiko is unable to follow their now-inaudible conversation from that point. The sudden return of Meiko to the sports ground in the present reminds her of Mari's deal, when she sees Andre's gigantic figure and notices Kiyoshi's message inscribed in the sand.
In a clearing within the mountainous forestry surrounding Tokyo, Mr. Important gathers the shotgun and declares his intent to fight the wild bear to the Chairman and Honey. Though the Chairman tries to dissuade Mr. Important, he tells him not to worry and Honey coerces the Chairman to leave. In the deeper forestry, the Chairman praises Mr. Important to Honey as the pair race deeper into the undergrowth. However, he stops running and tries to return while telling Honey to continue running.
