Worried Masaya discovered her identity, Ichigo avoids him. Later, Ichigo intends to cheer for Masaya during a kendo match but is unable to face him. Later, a jealous Kish attacks him with a chimera anima capable of recreating itself when attacked. Ichigo tries to fight the monster but is unable to destroy it. Kish tells her that he will let Masaya go if Ichigo becomes his, but Ichigo refuses and instead dives into the slime and grabs Masaya’s hand. Her body begins to glow and she breaks free, destroying the monster. Kish retreats and Masaya apologizes to Mew Ichigo for calling her “Ichigo”, explaining that she looked like someone he knew. Later, he thanks Ichigo for coming to cheer for him and ties a bell collar around her neck so she cannot run from him anymore. Disappointed in Kish’s continued failures, Deep Blue sends two more aliens, Pie and Tart, to help him destroy the Mew Mews.
