Noshiko is shot many times by the MPs, and the young medic dies in Eichen House in pain, as the doctor sold the morphine as well.

The Nogitsune goes on a killing spree, killing all of the staff and residents of Eichen House, as well as the Japanese and MPs at the internment camp.

The Nogitsune is defeated and exorcised from its host body, but the sword shatters into pieces. The Nogitsune leaves the body of her lover, in the form of a fly. Kira, as a Thunder Kitsune, is able to mend the katana, and her mother gives it to her to stop the Nogitsune once again.
