The high school principal introduces himself as the brother of Mikan's deceased father... This high school division team tells Mikan and the others that the elementary school's plan to use Mikan's stealing alice would endanger not only Mikan, but the other students as well. The best course of action is for Mikan to run away from the school and live with her mother, Azumi Yuka... meanwhile, Narumi notices someone (probably Yuka) hiding in that room behind a door... Narumi doesn't yet know that Yuka is here.
Mikan isn't sure what to think about all this, and starts crying... Natsume and Luca both jump in to object and insist that Mikan should be allowed to make her own decision. She doesn't even know who this Yuka person is... so Nodachi offers to take the 4 of them into the past so they can see for themselves what happened when Yuka attended this academy... Hotaru is having another emotional moment with her brother here.. now that Hotaru will be forced to go to another country, her brother admits that he should've treated her more like a sibling, and that he'll miss her..
