On the night of the summer festival, a "shadow" of Ushio appears in front of Shinpei. Unlike the other "shadows," she acts as if she were Ushio himself before her death. Shinpei is confused, but he cannot hide his joy at the thought of talking with Ushio, whom he will never see again. Shinpei hides Ushio so that Mio and Sou, who are wary of the "shadow," do not find her, but Ushio is not happy because she wants to see her sister. Later, Mio, the "shadow," reappears in front of Shinpei, who goes to Hiruko to join Sou.
