Plot Summary

Opening theme:

"My Dearest" by Supercell

The whole city goes into chaos as everyone's bodies are disintegrating into cancerous crystals which gets swallow by the sky. Dan and Gai suffer from the effects of the song. Suddenly, Daryl has Yan and Emily at sword point and tells him his unit number (which is the same as his birthday). He shoots them afterwards. Back to Keido, he reports that General Yan has been killed by a terrorist while Daryl laughs maniacally. He announces that the whole military is under the Antibodies' command. Dan punches Seiga, and Haruka runs away. Seiga kills Dan. Shu hears what has happened, and Tsugumi uses Funnell to yell at Shu for being indecisive. Later, Shu uses the broadcast system to tell his friends.

Back at the airport, the men report Gai's situation. Keido arrives to Roppongi. At the warehouse, Shu asks them to help him get to the airport. Yahiro states that Shu will use them as a tool. Back at the airport, Inori runs, and Gai struggles to stand up. Haruka appear, and Inori almost kill him. Gai answers Haruka's question about Shu's whereabouts. Back to Shu, his friends ask Shu who doesn't answer yet. Shu thinks about what would Gai do and makes his decision. He tells Hare that he's going to do something to her. Shu pulls a Void from Hare in front of his friends, and he explains what Voids are after healing Funnell. He confesses that he pulled out their Void and that he feels guilty. Yahiro asks them why he would save Funeral Parlor. Shu answers that without them he couldn't be someone that matters. Souta is the first one to agree. Yahiro points that Shu is still the same.

At the tower of heaven, Keido and Seiga walk around, and meanwhile, Gai holds back soldiers while Haruka hack the systems; Inori waits for Shu. Funeral Parlor are having trouble, and Ayase gets caught by Enclave. Haruka signals Inori to sing. She sings (the ending credit song) which heals everyone. The genomic resonance is going above. Shu uses Arisa's Void to protect the truck from machine gun fire. When the bridge goes down, Shu uses Hare's Void to repair the bridge. Suddenly, Enclave pursue them. Shu uses Souta's Void to close the tunnel. Daryl charges in. Tsugumi directs Shu to the radio twoer where Inori is. Shu yells for Inori. Daryl's Enclave smacks Shu's truck. Shu uses Yahiro's Void to destroy Daryl's machine. Shu finally arrives to Inori. However, something emerges from behind Inori. He (Yuu) stabs Inori and takes out her Void. He bids Shu farewell before slicing him. Yet, Gai is the one who got sliced, and the Apocalyptic event continues.

"Departures: Anata ni Okuru Ai no Uta" by the fictional band Egoist
