Arisa Kuhouin is slowly losing control over the Tennozu First High School student body, who are all currently in a state of turmoil. Rumors about the horrendous methods that the GHQ is dealing with those quarantined in Loop 7 are starting to float around, putting the students in an even more panicked state. How long will Arisa manage to contain the school's frenzy? Will the school get even more divided now that another rumor that says handing over the Undertaker members will give them safe passage out of the quarantined zone?

Plot Summary

Opening theme:

"The Everlasting Guilty Crown" by EGOIST

At school, Arisa tells her fellow classmates to have patience, but one student yells that they will all die anyway. A student asks her if they should investigate Loop 7. In another room, Shu and others watch Arisa from the TV. One student requests that they should elect a new president since Arisa is going to wait for her grandfather and not fulfilling her leadership roles.

The next day, Hare directs everyone to take the vaccine, and Yahiro shows them the chat room where the students are planning to overthrow Arisa. Tsugumi tells them that's not surprising, and she runs off after Souta offends her. Later, the student with glasses reveals a gun. In front of a lake, Inori asks Tsugumi if she's lonely, too. She finds Shu eavesdropping behind a tree, and she hands him a gauge that measures genomic resonance or Void's strength. Shu measures everyone's Void's strength. Then, they wonder about Tsugumi's Void with Kanon holding her down. Later that night at a tower, Keido asks for the status report. He orders them to begin Operation: Purify Japan. The Enclaves start killing the citizens who are in the red light. The walls move to keep the quarantined space smaller. Back at school, the student informs Arisa about the Koenji massacre. At the same time, Arugo and Ogumo thank Arisa's grandfather, and he asks them to save the citizens. At school, the students get a message about handing the Funeral Parlor members in exchange for going over the wall. Hare wants Shu to run for student president, and Tsugumi give a rich lady laugh. Suddenly, they hear a scream from the courtyard where students are hurting a girl to check the tattoo on her back. Even though Inori got bullied earlier, she appears to be safe when Shu rushes to find her. However, the guys were killed off-screen. Ayase is seen with the guys who bullied her from the last episode. Tsugumi helps her even though Ayase doesn't want her help. Arisa holds an assembly to tell her classmates to dispel the rumors.

However, the bullies have captured Tsugumi and Ayase, and they proceed to strip the girls. Shu stops the crowd due to his reputation of being an Enclave. He tells them that he is part of the Funeral Parlor and that he has an idea. Near the wall, the male student with the red ponytails reveal the Funeral Parlor members. Shu, Ayase, and Tsugumi are seen getting slaughtered in the red light, yet it is their dolls that Tsugumi's Void created. The video demonstrates the truth, but when the student with the glasses won't accept it, Shu disarms the guy with a Void Shuriken or a projectile of some sort. Yahiro nominates Shu as the president which everyone agrees. Later, Yahiro shows a map of all the Void strengths to Shu.

Closing theme:
