June 29, 2014
The light covers the Earth with Hexenjagd left praying for God, so Ryota, Neko, and Kazumi go to rescue Kotori on their own. They knock Ryota out - not wanting him to risk his life any longer. Chisato remarks how Takachiho's aim is to use "Ain Soph Aur" to reset the Earth in a whole new era. Though his only intention is to revive Rena, Kotori responds Chisato how she wants others to smile regardless of her life, so she ejects her own harness therefore cancels the light phenomenon. Mako slices Kazumi, but spares Neko as her little sister. As Nanami guides Ryota, he finds Kotori's melting body. Listening to her final words, she asks Ryota to tell her big brother not to harm anyone, and that she was happy till the very end. He also hears over Kazumi, as she mutters of wishing to have kids with Ryota. Mako recalls how Chisato saved her once when exposing himself to radiation. Chisato commands to have Neko ejected until Ryota hits him aside, shouting out Kotori/Rena's words at him. Mako uses gravity manipulation on Ryota and Neko. Then Kana quickly intervenes, who is now able to move when having her top button pressed for the cost of her forecast magic. Neko then presses her top button as well. Her full power is now awakened and her memories as "Kuroneko" - Ryota's childhood friend - is restored. Neko forms a barrier to counter Mako. Hexenjagd neutralized Mako's magic and then gun fires, but Chisato shields her from the bullets. With Chisato dead, Mako now believes the world is meaningless and attempts to unleash antimatter. Neko kisses Ryota, before using a micro black hole on Mako, which swallows her up for good. Ryota grabs Neko from falling off a collapsing cliff. However, Neko seems to have overexerted herself and unfortunately looses all her memories again. Kogoro later calls, saying that they have miraculously obtained the formula needed reproducing the pills for the witches. In the credits, they return to school, with Kotori's tombstone beside Chie's near the cottage they lived in. Kogoro, Hexenjagd, and the lab continue their research on aliens. The astronomy club begins a fresh start on an astronomical observation, with Kazumi restored thanks to Hatsuna. Ryota lets Neko see the summer triangle in the sky.

Meeting Mako and Chisato who have arrived at the observatory are demanding to hand over #1107 who's in fact—Kotori. Ryota distracts them for Hatsuna to jump on Mako from behind, but can't figure out which button to push on Mako's harness having her to slice Hatsuna. Wanting an explanation why they have to be killed, Chisato states the B-rank witches are unreasonable to live. He orders Mako to kill Neko, but Ryota push her away and takes the hit from Mako's magic. Losing consciousness, Nanami appears in astral form to Ryota informing that Neko used to be an S-rank witch stronger than Mako, the way to regain her power is by pressing the top button of her harness but it's a high risk; then Ryota dies. With the girls distressed and defenseless, Mako about to finish them off, but then a group of black individuals arrive who have neutralized Mako's magic. Following the device's signal that Ryota turned on earlier. Yet, Chisato escapes using Mako's teleportation taking Kotori along. Hatsuna had recovered and using her ability to heal; with Neko and Kazumi giving heart aid, they revive Ryota. Hatsuna melts in the process however. Miki and the individuals introduce themselves as Hexenjagd, a group resisting the lab, stating the witches still has to die because the amoebas "drasils" inside them - the witches' true form - will eventually hatch and devour their bodies into monsters. Moreover, Kotori has an entity called the "Grane" that can destroy all humanity. They tried to capture Kotori once, but failed, causing the witches' escape and losing a comrade (Akane). Kotori awakens before Chisato, calling her Rena. Rena was Chisato's younger sister whom believed was the only life meaningful to him until she died of sickness. He tells Kotori how aliens were believed to be the creation of humans on Earth. His efforts to revive Rena's soul within Kotori's body somehow. Not giving up, despite the revelation, Kazumi hacks in the lab's database locating Chisato's whereabouts near the lake, having Hexenjagd to take them along. Kotori asks Chisato what he feels for Mako, though he answers that she merely someone important for his plan. Suddenly, Kotori's harness hatches a light "Ain Soph Aur" into the Earth's atmosphere that begins covering the planet.
