Toru notes that Chaika is lost. Toru promises that he will take Chaika to the town if she buys him breakfast in return. a Unicorn appears deep in the woods and begins charging towards Toru and Chaika. Toru has Chaika jump down a cliff and use the coffin as a boat down the river. Upon reaching the rocky shore, Toru gives up and says he's incompetent. Chaika opens her coffin and takes out her gundo. She asks Toru to buy her some time while she prepares her magic technique. Toru utters a chant for his iron-blood transformation. While he engages the unicorn, he drags into the water.
