Blood Leopard explains to Silver Crow, the risk of overusing the Incarnate System since the power that it draws out, comes at a high price of causing a Burst Linker to lose their sense of self and give rise to a Chrome Disaster. Despite this, Crow decides to believe in the good of Brain Burst. Leopard then uses Silver Crow as bait to draw out Rust Taker into a duel, where they quickly beat him and return to the real world to hopefully spot his real body. Haruyuki catches a glimpse of him while making a strange swiping gesture but quickly loses him. Later Haruyuki and Takumu plan their next moves with the latter grasping the basic concept of incarnation from Yuniko. The next day, Haruyuki decides to talk to Chiyuri, who begins participating in battles with Dusk Taker, and although he doesn't understand her train of thought, swears to take back what Seiji stole from him. Later, Haruyuki analyzes all the data he has on Seiji (Dusk Taker). Based on the swiping gesture Rust Jigsaw made whilst not wearing a Neuro-Linker Haruyuki deduces that their faction is using illegal Brain Implant Chips which they connect to networks with and only use their Neuro-Linkers just as they enter a duel thus masking them from the matching list. The next day, Haruyuki confronts Seiji with his discovery and they agree on an ultimatum: settling their score with a final duel in the Unlimited Field where the winner claims all of the losers Burst Points. Haruyuki, with Takumu supporting him, determines to end their plight before Kuroyukihime returns.
