Assisted by their friends, the children manage to rebuild the Ofunehiki. However, the real festival will not be held as the fishermen and the men from Shioshishio are at odds with each other. After helping the others to collect signatures for a petition to hold the festival again, Hikari fails to convince his father Tomori to comply but he ends up taking part in the reunion between both parts arranged by him. Despite being impressed at first with the Ofunehiki, it does not take long for both sides to reiginite their old feuds and start fighting, a situation that gets even more hectic when Akari and Itaru enter the room together. After the failed meeting, Tomori attempts to once again persuade her to break up with Itaru but she had made her decision and prepares herself to leave her house in Shioshishio. Hikari decides to leave with her as well but Uroko uses his powers in attempt to stop them until Tomori asks him to let them go.
