Sugane follows Hajime further into the tunnel. People are still calling out for help and one woman grabs Utsutsu’s hand. Luckily, it’s the correct hand and the woman heals. Seeing how she can help, Utsutsu quickly makes her way to another injured man, healing him as well. Jou reminds her that it will kill her, but she doesn’t seem to care. Jou pulls her away as she screams out that she wants to save them. Seeing her determination, Jou offers her his life force, and Utsutsu makes copies of herself to help everyone.
Sugane makes it to where Hajime and Rui are and is stunned that Rui can see Gatchaman. Rui asks Hajime if she’s a Gatchaman, and she says that she is. She says “Amnesia Remind” and uncovers her face. Sugane seems pretty angry as Hajime introduces herself to Rui. Rui is not impressed and leaves her. Sugane grabs her and carries her away in the opposite direction. But the tunnel’s cameras have recorded Hajime and it seems that now everyone will know that she’s a Gatchaman.
Hajime is exposed on every conceivable news outlet, but at least they don’t have her name. Still, not many believe that Gatchaman even exist. It was funny that someone thought Hajime was just cosplaying. However, those that know Hajime, recognize her immediately. Rui decides that he will take advantage of the Gatchaman.
Sugane is angry with Hajime for breaking the rules, but can’t seem to yell at her. However, Paiman has no problem with that and really lets her have it. At least Paiman is nice enough to ask JJ to spare her life, but he gets no response. JJ doesn’t seem to be reachable at the moment, so Paiman decides they should go on hiatus and keep a low profile for a while.
I like how Hajime cut up her dress to make Utsutsu a present. By the time they go out, it looks like she cut it up a lot more, since Utsutsu’s hair is covered in bows. Hajime is so impulsive! At the stationery store, she’s attacked by a group of new reporters. Hajime is being honest again and when Sugane tries to stop her, they think he’s her boyfriend! It was nice of Rui to send people to rescue her.
While Hajime and Utsutsu hide, LOAD sends Hajime a message and tells her that many reporters are still in the area. He tells her that if she accepts his invitation, he can help her escape. Utsutsu says it sounds “fishy”, but Hajime accepts. X begins to give her the instructions to escape and Hajime thinks it will be fun. But the reporters find her right away and it soon looks like a parade. However, Hajime and Utsutsu still get away in a game of “rescue the princess”. Knights come to save her, but she doesn’t like being called a princess. Both Hajime and Utsutsu start to enjoy themselves as they evade all the reporters.
Sugane also receives an invitation from LOAD, as Hajime and Utsutsu arrive at a fancy hotel. They are taken upstairs and meet Rui. Hajime tells him how much fun she had getting there and LOAD tells her that is the world he wants to create with GALAX. Hajime is surprised to find out that LOAD is behind GALAX. Sugane arrives at the hotel and activates Amnesia Effect.
LOAD offers to erase all of the information about Hajime that’s currently circulating, but Hajime says that she doesn’t care, and she knows that Rui is a guy too although he’s dressed as a girl again. He sees Sugane hanging from the ceiling and announces that the last guest has arrived. Sugane must be surprised that his Amnesia Effect isn’t working.
Rui talks about the world he wants to create, and Hajime tells him how wonderful GALAX is. Rui then asks them to stop being Gatchaman, saying that Gatchaman aren’t necessary in the GALAX world to come. Sugane confronts him on that statement, and Rui tries to explain his reasons. Rui wants to turn the entire world into heroes! He wants them to stop being Gatchaman and become GALAXters. During this, Hajime pulls out her NOTE, and tells Rui that it’s her favorite. Rui asks them again to stop being Gatchaman, and while Sugane sees his point, he thinks that Gatchaman are still necessary.
Hajime just blurts out that she won’t stop, and asks Rui about all the “sparkly things” that were at the tunnel. Rui pretends ignorance, and after a moment of gazing at him, Hajime tells Rui that he’s prettier without makeup. So, I guess that ends that! On the way home, Sugane sends Hajime and Utsutsu on ahead, telling them that he hadn’t deactivated Amnesia Effect, but could still be seen. Sugane says that LOAD also reacted to Hajime’s NOTE when she took it out, and pretended ignorance about the tunnel. Sugane says that it’s all just too suspicious, and that there must be something more to LOAD. Hajime just says, “of course there is”, surprising Sugane. Still, Sugane turns to go back. Rui thinks about Hajime’s makeup comment, and thinks she’s an “amazing girl”. She sure is!
