The following day, Ayumu arrives to Naegleria's place, and he is greeted by a woman who falls on him. Her enormous breasts presses against Ayumu's face, and Ayumu begins to blush and to lose himself. Later, Ayumu stares at Naegleria's body as Naegleria takes care of business over on the phone. With that done, she informs Ayumu to call her Nene and that she makes a living on making Doujinshi. When Ayumu wants to ask her, Nene begins to doze off. He asks her if she going to fight with them, but Nene refuses because the world is going be destroyed due to their fight. Then, Nene asks Ayumu to help her with her draft. At the store, Ayumu thinks about his promise to Sarasvati, and he calls Haruna for help, and Haruna agrees once Ayumu calls her a genius. Arriving at Nene's home, Ayumu tries to sneak past the shower room without looking, and Nene falls on top of Ayumu's back. Ayumu urges Nene to wake up before someone comes in and sees them. After a doorbell rings, Ayumu opens the door and sees no one is there. However, Haruna clings to the front door with tears streaming from her eyes. Ayumu calls Haruna only to call Sarasvati by mistake. She asks if Ayumu is coming to her concert tomorrow.

On the following day, Haruna and the others arrive, and Seraphim barges in. Seraphim explains that Haruna came home crying about Ayumu's sins. Ayumu denies their claims. Then, Nene wakes up and greets Eucliwood. Seraphim asks Nene if she commit lewd crimes with Ayumu. Nene states that what if she did and Ayumu is a man after all.

Then, Eucliwood notices that the manga is about her and the characters are from the Seventh Abyss. She asks Nene why she created the story, and Nene replies she wants to make the happy ending. Then, Seraphim finishes cooking some vile, and Haruna finishes making her grand castle. When Eucliwood points to the leaking pot, Nene wakes up and sees the draft wet by the soup. Nene reassures them that she can finish the manga anytime. Ayumu begs Nene to help them, and Nene agrees. When morning falls, everyone is hard at work on the manga.
