As the fight between Maki Oze, Takehisa Hinawa and the 3 Angels of the 5th reaches its climax, Shinra storms Hibana's household. When he enters, Shinra is attacked by the 3 Angels of the 5th, but quickly makes work of them. In the meantime, Hibana recollects her past with Iris, until she is interrupted by Shinra. Asserting his presence, Iris shouts out to Shinra in worry, claiming he won't be able to beat her as she's a Battalion Commander, but Shinra exclaims their fight won't go like their previous confrontation. As he dashes toward her, Hibana gazes at the boy and uses her heat fever to make him fall to his knees in dizziness. Hibana explains her ability to Shinra, and he begins to think nothing of it but his own imagination, which allows him to gradually stand up using sheer willpower. Then exclaiming he'll use his imagination to become a hero instead, Hibana pulls out her iron fan and displays her Ignition Abilty as she prepares to take on Shinra. Iris looks at the two as she doesn't want them to fight, but Shinra claims that he'll fight Hibana in order to open her eyes to reality.
