The weeklong sports festival is underway, and Souta’s team seems to be doing well. However, at the end of the first day, Souta begins to lose his fighting spirit and the whole team suffers as a result. By the second to last day, Souta’s team drops to 8th place.
Ruri is the only one who seems to notice that the team’s loss of morale has been caused by Souta’s sudden gloomy demeanor, so she and Souta end up having a private talk in the nearby greenhouse that night. Souta explains that he has a massive death flag hanging over him. Knowing that his death would cause his friends immense sadness, Souta would rather be expelled than have his friends witness his death. However, Souta accidentally activates some kind of hidden code within Ruri, causing her to reveal the presence of an “other world” located in the same site as Quest Dorm. In this “other world” there is a tree that can break all flags. Souta needs to find a knight, a magician, a ninja, and a cleric in order to access the gate to the Other World. Souta quickly realizes who the knight, magician, and ninja are, but he’s lost as to who the cleric is. Nonetheless, now knowing that there is a way to break his own death flag, Souta regains the will to live on for the sake of his friends.
The next day is the last event, the relay run. Souta and Nanami are paired up for the last leg of the race, and although they manage to keep the lead, a sudden injury on Nanami’s end causes them to end up in
second place despite Souta’s best efforts. Fortunately, the school’s board of the directors is touched by the display of teamwork shown by Souta’s team, so Souta’s team wins the MVP title and Souta won’t be expelled. As the episode ends, we see a glimpse of a mysterious person, who seems to have been spying on Souta.
