Spoiler

I really thought there for a moment that Matsuoka and Yukimura may have already suspected that Tachibana was a girl. But I guess not. However, Tachibana got kicked out of Toy Gun Gun anyway and feels that she needs to prove herself to get back in. Matsuoka threw her out for other reasons, but Tachibana thinks that if someone as weak as she is can beat Midori, she can get back on the team. This might end up being a disaster!

I don’t think Tachibana is never going to beat Midori at this rate! But it seems that she suspects Matsuoka kicked her off the team for another reason. Well, if she isn’t weak and Matsuoka doesn’t know she’s a girl or dislikes her, then what could that reason be? Midori only tells her that Matsuoka is a coward. So, what does that mean?

Midori ignites Tachibana’s anger on purpose and Tachibana makes a perfect shot after all of her earlier misses. She says that she won’t let Midori have her friends and will meet him again on the battlefield. Once home, Yukimura invites Tachibana to his apartment and says that he will tell him why the team doesn’t allow female members and why Matsuoka kicked him off the team.

Yukimura tells Tachibana that Matsuoka is obsessed with Midori and won’t be satisfied until he’s beaten him at TGC. There is also a bit more to the story of the original female team member than Yukimura first told him. It seems that Midori played a mental game with Matsuoka as well, leaving Matsuoka believing himself to be a weak leader that cannot protect his team.

It turns out that Yukimura wants to beat Midori just as badly. He apologizes, but Tachibana just wants him to continue with the explanation. Then he finds out that there was another team member before him! And that team member is probably why Tachibana was kicked out. That team member also quit, but also ended up hating survival games because of Matsuoka and Midori. Matsuoka didn’t want the same thing to happen to him.

Yukimura assures Tachibana that he can still play survival games on his own, but Yukimura begs Tachibana to come back to the team, if only to save Matsuoka from himself. Tachibana tells Yukimura that he didn’t have to gain his sympathy with the truth – he had already decided to save Matsuoka! As he leaves Yukimura’s apartment, Matsuoka is just coming home. Trying to avoid an awkward situation, Matsuoka tries to enter his apartment quickly, but Tachibana stops him. With a challenge!!!
