She explains to Acura on how driving a vehicle works and that her father had created the vehicle and Gundo. Then, the group runs into a roadblock by a group who are raising funds to restore Neo-Gaz Empire. The surprising part is that they claim to have Princess Chaika on their side. The real Chaika pays them with a silver coin. Frol orders his men to check the vehicle. Akari makes up a story that they are traveling performers when one of the men spot a coffin in the vehicle. The Neo Gaz men demand proof by having Chaika's group put up a performance. After a few tricks, the crowd is won over by Fredrika's performance. Akari drops the cat into the coffin while Toru utters incantation. Out pops Fredrika's dragoon head from the coffin.
Meanwhile, Vivi checks up on Alberic who is hard at work, researching about the late Emperor Gaz. She decides not to bother her superior and exits the building where she meets with Zita by the river. Zita and Vivi greet Alberic who informs them that there were no information on the emperor and he could not verify if there are organizations that are bent on restoring the empire. Vivi and Zita invite Alberic to the dinner. Later that night, Akari and the gang eat dinner with Mart's group. Chaika finds out that they are citizens of the Gaz Empire. When Mart's men return with goods, Toru realizes they are a bunch of bandits. Nearby, the fake Princess Chaika (Julia) asks Chaika if she and Toru are boyfriend and girlfriend. Julia explains that she wants to rebuild the empire, so the people have a place to live. She asks Chaika to help rebuild the empire. Julia recites a love poem from a poet of the Gaz Empire.

Meanwhile, Mart's group tries to rob Toru's group, but Mart's group is easily defeated and all tied up by Akari and Toru. Mart confesses that they didn't do this in the first place, but they are short of their goal to restore the empire.
