Ryuho: Miss Kiryu, I was wondering if we could see each other this evening.
Ryuho: You and I need to talk.
Cougar: Hey, what's going on? What do you mean you need to talk?
Mimori: Yes! I'd love to!
Ryuho: Until later, then.
(Ryuho turns and walks away.)
Cougar: What the heck? Was I too late, or slow? I don't get it! I know I'm handsome enough, so what's wrong? Am I some sort of cultural nerd or what? Is it the way I dress...? Maybe I came on too strong or—No, that can't possibly be it!
Urizane: (sitting around the corner) That Cougar never was all that bright.
Cougar: Well, it's like this. The first move is crucial when you meet someone. No matter how attractive she is, if you don't meet her soon enough, she's more than likely to be involved with some other guy. So what I say is that it's always better to let her know that you're interested the moment you meet her. Speed is power, so if you're interested, you gotta get close to her, and if you like her, you gotta tell her so! A relationship begins with letting the other person know about you. Hey, sometimes the result is a bad outcome, but you never know when the next opportunity is gonna present itself.
Mimori: Actually, you might have a good point there.
Cougar: But of course! I thought it all out.
Mimori: Oh, absolutely! But of course the most important thing of all is to get her name right.
Cougar: (Laughs) You got me there.
Asuka: Take my name to the grave with you. I am Asuka Tachibana, handler of 8 treasure balls or the Eternity 8.
Scheris: How does everyone look?
Ryuho: It's like each one of them is filled with unexplicable fear. Physical damage is minor compared to the psychological. I doubt they'll ever regain the use of their alter powers.
Kanami: Feel free to use him as much as you want.
Kazuma: What the heck is that supposed to mean?
Asuka's alter ability, the eternity eight, is shown for the first time in this episode.
