Shugo replies that they were not playing they were training. Sanjuro chimes in and says that a warrior needs to train. Rena replies that Shugo is not a warrior and that she is feeling neglected that they should spend more time together. In Mac Anu, the Shugo and Rena learn about the Festival of the Weaver Maiden that will be held later that day. In the field Distant Azure River, where the festival of Tanabata is scheduled to take place, Shugo is already there waiting for the others to arrive. When Mireille shows up, she is wearing a rare yukata that she received as a rare item from a very tough battle. Shortly after, Hotaru, Ouka and Rena teleport in and they, too, are wearing yukatas. According to Tanabata tradition, everyone must write a wish down and hang it on the tree branches. The Tanabata event starts with the contest of the weaver maiden. The person chosen randomly to become Orihime is Rena. She is lifted into the air and teleported to stage. Balmung thinks that this cannot be a coincidence, she was chosen despite the fact that the sampling was supposed to be purely random. The rest of the participants will try to make their way across the river and the first person to greet Rena will be crowned as Kenju(Orihime's lover). Once the contest starts, the contestants use a variety of means to give themselves an advantage. In the meantime, Komiyan the 3rd (Shugo's old classmate) has taken the lead and is about to get his wish… until a large fish appears in his path and he is forced to retreat. Ouka is looking for a worthy fight, and Mireille thinks that defeating a special event character will give her some rare items. They attack, but the fish is a corrupted monster and it is able to heal itself and it goes after Rena. Feeling that there is nothing left to do, Shugo Data Drains the monster (along with Komiyan who was nearby) and Mireille collects the fish as a rare item. As Shugo reaches for Rena, Rena instead grabs Balmung's hand to thank him. Since the race was still going on during the battle, Balmung is declared the winner. Moments before the kiss takes place, a Grunty enters at the last minute with footage showing that Shugo was really the first one there.

Balmung and Reki get together to talk about the Kite and Blackrose contest. CC Corp claims that they did not authorize the contest and that they know nothing about it. Balmung thinks that either they truly know nothing about it, or that they are refusing to talk. Balmung tells Reki to report is as a number one emergency claim. Hopefully then someone will decide to talk. On the field, Ouka, Mireille, and Rena tell Shugo to stay out of there and just practice swinging his sword when they fight. That way Shugo can still level up along with the group but he does not have to do any actual fighting. When the group mentions that Rena is doing very well in learning how to fight, Shugo gets jealous and mentions that they are at the same level because they both started the game at the same time. Frustrated because he feels like he is holding everyone back, he gets mad and teleports away. As Shugo sits by the river in Mac Anu, wondering why Aura gave him the bracelet, he notices the girl Hotaru sitting beside him. She is concerned because she thinks her Grunty is sick and does not know what to do. Shugo decides they should stop at a doctor, who diagnoses it with Grunty Influenza. Curious if there was anything they could do to help it get better, the doctor said that the only way they can save it is by getting the Wings of Phoenix from Blazing Purgatory Valley. Blazing Purgatory Valley is filled with lots of high-level monstes and soon Shugo and Hotaru are trapped between two monsters When the monster attacks Hotaru, Shugo decides to use his Data Drain to save Hotaru from sacrificing herself.
