Nai parts in search of Karoku and begins his journey just to find himself captive in a luxury house. One night, Nai is being harassed by a strange woman named Mine, when she sees the bracelet, she thinks that the Circus people is around.

Suddenly, an explosion blasts one part of the house and the woman runs away from the room. Meanwhile, part of the roof colapses and a boy comes down, he is Gareki, a simple thief looking for something good to steal. Gareki pays no attention to Nai and searches the room.

Nai asks Gareki if he will escape. Then, Nai tells him that he also wants to escape, and once Gareki sees the Karoku’s bracelet he exchanges it with Nai. Of course, Nai has no evil inside and tells him that if Karoku allows, he can give it to Gareki.

Once they can walk away, they find a commotion in town, a train has been kidnapped and there are police officers everywhere. Gareki has no idea and once he hears the train he jumps on taking Nai with him.
