Karasawa and Jin discuss the press conference. Karasawa explains that he brought Osamu to the conference since he wanted the boy to have a chance to defend himself. He also discusses the massive attention being focused towards the expeditions. While 26 agents left Border, about 130 applications came in.
Meanwhile, at Tamakoma Branch, Yōtarō congratulates Tamakoma Second on their victory. However, Konami warns them that the two teams they were facing were stronger. In fact, the high-tier B-Rank teams had A-Rank level agents. While Karasuma wants to explain their opponents, Kizaki on the other hand decides to let them analyze them themselves.
Suwa Unit strategizes on defeating Tamakoma Second. They awe at Chika's Trion power, and Yūma's battle prowess. Arafune Unit does the same.
Analyzing the two teams, Tamakoma Second reports that Suwa Unit has two gunners and one attacker. The attacker generally shielded the team, and used Chameleon to launch a sneak-attack. Usami explains to Chika how she would escape if she was found. The group generalizes that they need a strategy which allowed Chika to minimize her shots. Usami also explained that Tamakoma Second got to choose the battle stage. On February 5, Tamakoma Second has their second battle.
