I Can't Protect Anyone Anymore.
Takako, when she was the Prétear, fell in love with Hayate, who encouraged her to get stronger, though she endured much fear in battle. However, as Hayate was unable to return that love, she became the Fenrir, which urged the Leafe Knights to seal her away in imprisonment long ago. Figuring out that the powers are based from emotions, being influenced either positively or negatively, Himeno never felt that being the Prétear was any of her business or being dragged into the cause. Instead, she says that the Leafe Knights should be in agreement in order to combine their powers together. The next day, Himeno tries to have a positive attitude despite injuring herself several times. Meanwhile, the Leafe Knights spot a few building demons lurking in separate areas of the city, yet they are seen as decoys. At the cathedral, Himeno is overwhelmed upon seeing Takako again, soon learning that she is unable to allow Hayate to merge into her.
