Having flown far out of Brigandia's reach, the group breathes a sigh of relief and Serara can't help but be overwhelmed at the kindness Shiroe and co. showed in her rescue. The party then sets up camp and Nyanta brandishes his cooking prowess by explaining that only those with the Chef sub-class are able to manually prepare food with flavor. After a venison barbeque supper, Nyanta, Shiroe and Naotsugu explain their history as part of the legendary adventuring group—Debauchery Tea Party, which causes Akatsuki to lament her own abilities. As their journey back to Akihibara continues, Shiroe reminisces about his time spent mentoring two beginners—Tōya and Minori, just before the Apocalypse, and recalls having glimpsed them joining a guild back in Akihibara. The next day, a sudden thunderstorm forces the party to seek shelter in a nearby farming village and they meet Fedor—one of the People of the Land. After interacting with Fedor and his grandchildren, Shiroe deduces that the NPCs of this world have more human characteristics, and making themselves—the anomalies of the world. Elsewhere, Tōya and Minori along with other beginners find themselves taken advantage of by the guild who coaxed them into joining. Finally, as Tōya and the rest of his guild set out the next day, he happily notices Shiroe and co. safely back in Akihibara, but finds himself unable to meet him.
