Kozue is determined to find some proof of occult activity to show to Maya, the headmaster. She confesses that she's so driven because she is the only person who has never seen anything occult related.
Fumiaki gets in trouble from his superiors when they discover that a civilian (Maya) has his cell phone, which is key to discovering the Nostradamus Key.
During a class experiment, Kozue volunteers to be put in suspended animation to have a brief near-death experience. She sees and hears many strange things while "dead", and all of this is broadcast to her watching classmates. When she is revived, she acts very differently that when she was put under. Also, something strange is shown on the broadcast screen after she leaves the room.
