Saki returns to her friends in Eden of the East, a recycling club at their University, and tells them about Akira. They soon become interested in (and suspicious of) him and decide to go visit him. Akira warmly greets them and informs them that he had found out about their club’s special commodity. They have developed a revolutionary image recognition program, but have stalled due to problems at the University. Akira offers to help Eden of the East in their goal, in exchange for having them help him on his duty as a Selecao. Encouraged by Akira, Saki decides to stay in the club. Meanwhile, Hirasawa receives a call from Kasuga, who had been tasked with finding Ohsugi. Kasuga suspects that Ohsugi may have been kidnapped by the “Johnny Hunter”, a kidnapper reputed to have almost 20,000 victims, according to a story circulating over the internet.
