“The Eastern Pursuit!”
“Osutoranto Gō no Tsuiseki” (東方号の追跡)
Colbert is alive, he had faked his death thanks to Tabitha. Using knowledge from the Zero Fighter he has constructed the airship called “Ostland” with an advanced engine and invites everyone on it. Saito worries on what to say about Tabitha. Louise is still suspicious about what she witnessed between Henrietta and Saito and enlists the help of Siesta and Tiffania to capture Saito and force him by using a magic item that will reveal what happened the previous night. Pursued across the ship, (under the mistaken impression the magic item will remove his clothes) Saito goes into the boiler room which reminds him of his world. By the increasingly desperate trio Saito is finally cornered, but instead it revealed to all about Tabitha’s involvement in the previous night’s escapade. Kirche reveals Tabitha’s past to everyone, and figured its King Joseph of Gallia who is trying to abduct Louise. Saito and Henrietta have difficulty meeting one another eyes throughout the event, but the affair concludes with Louise’s resolution to trust Saito while Siesta remains concerned.
