Tohya, Rundelhaus Code, Serara and Nyanta return to the Log Horizon guild hall one night after watching a performance by Isuzu at a local restaurant and they give her high praise despite her modesty. Meanwhile, Shiroe and Maryelle discuss sending the junior members on their first independent journey to obtain materials for a special magic bag essential to an adventurer. Later that night, Tohya and Isuzu discuss the importance of having a talent or sport for oneself. Isuzu also explains that when she discovered a lute instrument in the Crescent Moon Alliance, it renewed her passion for music and helped her cope with their new reality after being rescued from Hamelin. The next day, the junior party excitedly prepare for their quest while their senior guild members naturally offer their advice and worry. After stocking up on weapons and item essentials, the entire Log Horizon guild have supper that night and the junior members decide to perform in the villages they pass along the way during their journey. Shiroe also suggests that they not make contact with the senior members for help as it would be a good opportunity for them to become independent. After covering all their bases and bidding their friends farewell, the junior party sets off on their journey the next day.
