Kotarou later takes Akane back to the orphanage and then reports back to Esaka, leaving out that he encountered the Key. Afterwards, Sakuya takes them to see Akane, who says she will do what she can to help them while still in Gaia.
Kotarou soon discovers that similar things have happened to others connected to Haruka and those who have investigated the urban legend before. In the past, the Earth had sent this energy to the Moon so life could continue.
Kotarou starts going on solo missions and saves various kids, both summoners and superhumans alike, to go live with Jasmine and the others. They attempt to lead him to a way out, but awaken a gigantic monster in the process which attacks them.
The staff members included Tonokawa and Ryukishi07 who discussed the game's scenario, and Orito and Hoshi who talked about Rewrite's music. To do so, they are in pursuit of someone known as the Key who could determine the fate of the world's survival.
Kotarou later runs into Inoue who gives him a memory card. At Gaia's headquarters, a choir group begins to sing the song of destruction.
Kotarou finds Akane's name tag and tries to search for her. She has a playful personality and has an extremely strong pet dog named Chibi-Moth,  which is actually a familiar created by Kotori from the body of her dead pet dog Pero.
While in the forest, Kotarou gets separated from the girls, but when he goes to find them, he gets chased by three large dog-like creatures which eventually attack him, pinning him down. The top three winners would each get a downloadable wallpaperand first place would get original artwork for the wallpaper.
Kotarou talks to Esaka about wanting to be more useful, and Esaka suggests he join a private security firm affiliated with Guardian to fight overseas.
