With the money she buys lewd magazines for Hideki and the new volumes of her favourite book “A city with no people” But Hideki starts to question his feelings about not buying Chi gifts, after all Chi isn’t human but like many Persecoms she is made to resemble one and Hideki wonders why they are made like this. Meanwhile two mysterious characters leave behind them a path of destruction as they trace the steps of where Chi was, when Chi seems to have an emotional response they are able to pinpoint the position. It is unknown if these two characters, Zima and Dita, know they are being monitored by Hideki’s Landlady Chitose. And when Hideki receives an anonymous grainy image containing what appears to be Chi and Chitose in a lab, Chi has no memory of this and Hideki starts to become concerned enough to ask Minoru Kokubunji for help.
