Long Summary Edit
Murakami greets Kageura, and is begged by the two trainees that Kageura attacked to protect them. Murakami reveals that Kageura had a Side Effect, which allowed him to read hearts, which Yūma detects as a lie. In this case, he sensed the negative emotions coming from the two trainees. Regardless, the trainees flee. Murakami warns Kageura not to do it lest be demoted. Kageura counters saying that he cared more when people insulted him, and Yūma asks him if he didn't care for being in A-Rank. Never having met Yūma before, Murakami introduces him, much to Kageura's amusement that Murakami and Arafune lost to him. Kageura inquires why Yūma was interested in getting to A-Rank, suggesting expeditions. Yūma offers Kageura to try and read his mind with his Side Effect. Kageura then gets up to leave, criticizing his own Side Effect. Before going, Kageura tells Yūma that his team wouldn't let weaklings win. Yūma asks Murakami what Kageura's real Side Effect was, and Murakami tells him it's "receiving emotions aimed at him from others." The sensation Kageura feels is like pricking, and the more negative the emotions, the more painful it is. They agree that it was harsh for him, and Murakami goes on to say that he had the same air as Yūma.
Osamu arrive at Tachikawa Unit's operations room, where he is greeted by a strange boy, who has a lot of pride in his unit's standing. When Osamu tells him his purpose of being there, and mentions Karasuma, he tries to physically get Osamu to leave, when Izumi kicks him in the back. Tachikawa tries to lower the boy's - Takeru Yuiga - vigor by telling him that he was so weak that he wasn't worthy of being represented by any one of the swords of the Tachikawa Unit emblem. During their conference, Osamu explains his goal of being able to get points alone, and his training which Arashiyama Unit which allowed him to remove the guard of a target.
