Ryuko wakes up in Aikuro's room and explains that Nui had shred Senketsu. Aikuro reveals that she has a piece of Senketsu. Senketsu informs her that pieces of him are attached to other students for the school raid. After Ryuko leaves on her motorcycle to get back Senketsu's parts, Aikuro strips down in front of Mataro and ditches his cover forever.
Meanwhile, Shiro explains to Satsuki on how Senketsu's pieces will power up her army. In Kobe, Osaka, and Kyoto, the others have arrive at their destination. Once Inumuta has cut off their communications, Satsuki commences the operation. Kyuji Obayashi and Kenta Sakuramiya's group start raining molotov cocktail at Ira's group. Ira confronts the football team with his group's iron clad disciplinary guidebooks. Over at Kyoto, Nonon's group storm inside the school where the Abekamo Academy uses their mystical creatures to intimidate Nonon's group. Inumuta, via a hologram, helps Nonon by breaking through the Divine Four Formation's geomagnetism illusion/barrier. Nonon's group begins blasting the academy's four guardians and their entire student body. Meanwhile in Osaka, Kaneo's group engages Uzu's raid team with the power of money, Takarada Bucks to be exact. Elsewhere in Osaka, Mako steals some money from a soldier to buy some Takoyaki.
In Kobe, the men bring out a tank with composite meat armor. When the tank fires at Ira's men, Ira has his men use their guidebooks along with Senketsu's power to reflect the tank's attack back at it. Out of the flames, Ryuko struck Ira's face and steals the Senketsu patches from Ira's men. In Kyoto, Nonon's team decimates the school. Ryuko arrives and robs Nonon's group of their Senketsu patches. In the Osaka battle, Takarada summons the common masses with the power of money. Satsuki arrives via helicopter to assist Uzu. When Uzu's men finds Mako goofing off, Ryuko saves Mako. With most of the patches retrieve, Senketsu informs Ryuko that she has become stronger and that the last piece is with Satsuki.
