The episode starts with Ohsugi restrained in a chair by Shiratori, a selecao who doubles as a dominatrix. She threatens his "johnny" with her cigar cutter but before she can do anything more she gets a phone call. Very irritated, she tells Ohsugi that she has to take a break and she will just live him in his own pit of despair. Meanwhile, Saki is dropped off at her place by Akira. He asks her if she's sure that she just wants to stay. Akira nods and drives off into the night on his motorcycle. Saki calls her sister and tells her that she is not returning home for awhile and that she will be staying with her friend Micchon. Her sister pleads for her to come home instead but Saki tells her that she cannot face Ryouusuke. When she tries to get ahold of Ohsugi to apologize for not meeting him for dinner Micchon interrupts her leaving Saki to ask her if she can borrow a change of clothes.
Saki explains to her friends in the "Eden of the East" group that Akira wants to support them. Hirasawa isn't too fond of the idea because he is quite suspicious of Akira however since Micchon seems to be quite interested, Hirasawa is left making the decision that they should go and meet with Akira. They don't want to leave Ohsugi out of their plan so Hirasawa has another member named Kasuga start looking for him because he had disappeared after the dinner he had with Katsuya (which was supposed to be just Ohsugi and Saki instead). When Hirasawa and co. arrive at the shopping mall where Akira lives, they're quite impressed. Hirasawa goes up to the V.I.P room because that is where Akira should be seeing as how his motorcycle was parked in the mall already. However, he finds that Akira is absent from the room but instead notices that there are is a surveillance system set up. This worries Hirasawa so he dashes downstairs to meet up with Saki and Micchon. To add to his worry, when some music starts playing he freaks out only to see that Akira welcoming them, riding on a mechanical bear.
After everyone (especially Hirasawa) is all settled down, they begin discussing the "Eden of the East" group. Akira tells Hirasawa why he is interested in working with them. He tells him how Saki shouldn't have to work with some group of old guys who just spill Gyuudon on her and how any cellphone can use the Eden of the East program as an image search program. Resulting in a data stream in forms of boxes whenever the cellphone is pointed at a person or object. When Akira is told that Micchon is the one that wrote the program, he praises her causing her to blush a little. Back to the topic at hand, Hirasawa further explains how the program was designed and what it's purpose is. It started as a recycling community that the development of the image recognition engine, things that were formerly junk could then be turned into valuables. It was all thanks to Saki and how she labeled images with new values. It then turned into a matchmaking tool and when students started registering for it, and trouble started to stir.
Hirasawa tells Akira that he doesn't wish for his help because of the way Akira views Eden of the East as a group of NEET's. When Saki tells Hirasawa that she wishes to help him as well as have Akira support the group, Hirasawa has no choice but to reluctantly decide on forming a partnership with Akira. When the two shakes hands they agree on a consensus. Akira tells Saki that she should have a new change of clothes, he picks out an outfit for her from one of the clothing stores.
When everyone meets up in Akiras V.I.P room, Akira and Micchon go outside to the front of the mall and set up a some sparklers in a very strange pattern that when lit up appears to be the image of a happy animal face. When Hirasawa gets a call from Kasuga, who tells him that Ohsugi has been kidnapped by the "Johnny Hunter". When Hirasawa asks for Kasugas basis on this assumption, he tells him that there is a website forum where someone has been posting random pictures as well as explaining how he was confined by a mysterious woman claiming to ask for help. The rumor is that over 20, 000 victims have been captured by the hunter. Hirasawa asks Kasuga to send the URL of the site to him immediately.
