- Translated preview
Kanata enthusiastically goes out to town during her first holiday in Seize. Coincidentally, this is also a day when the central plaza of the town is open. While looking around to spend her first paycheck, Kanata meets the nun Yumina from the church, and joins the search for the girl Mishio who slipped out of the orphanage. However, while Kanata is away, another situation progresses inside the Time-Keeping Fortress.
Since HQ isn't paying them, the platoon minus Kanata is distilling calvados illegaly. It is probably sold by Naomi from the Windmill. Some mafia members spot it. Filicia, Noel, Kureha, and Rio enact a badass play in which they shoot people with blanks and make the gangsters flee. Meanwhile, Kanata shops around for presents, meets Mishio and Yumina, and helps Mishio find a box with a memento from her dead mother, saving her life and crushing the gangsters' car in the process.
The group give Kanata her paycheck early and she goes into town to spend it. In actuality, it is to get her out of the way whilst the others illegally trade some calvados to make some money. When they get word from Naomi that some investigators are planning to snoop in on the deal, they stage a mock shoot out to scare them off. Meanwhile, one of Yumina's orphans, Mishio, runs off when she objects to having her hair brushed. Kanata finds her at the market, where she reveals she is looking for a certain box. Yumina explains to Kanata the box was a memento of Mishio's mother that was taken when she died. Mishio ends up on a roof, but the noise from the mock shoot out causes her to slip. Kanata manages to save her before she falls, though it causes some rocks to fall that smash into the investigators' car. While apologizing to Naomi, they notice the box Mishio had been looking for. Mishio decides to give it to Yumina as a symbol of how much she cares for her.
- The secret that Kureha does'nt know in Episode 2 and Kanata in Episode 4 could be the secret distilling of calvados. The money collected by Noël in Episode 4 could be from this illegal trade.
- Some mobster from the central mafia.
Calvados is an apple brandy from the French région of Basse-Normandie (Lower Normandy), mainly from the departement of Calvados which gave the spirit its name.
A puzzle box is a box that can only be opened through some obscure, and sometimes complicated, series of manipulations. Traditional in Japan.
What is the "invisible reaper" the preist mentioned that wiped out Mishio's town?
Naomi: Hey. What if someone came and tried to buy it for themselves?
Kanata: I'd tell them that dolphins are very scary animals that eat people, so they wouldn't want it!
