Episode 11 begins with Swindler and Courier being captives of their own past memories. Hacker shows up and pulls them out. He then reveals to them what Kanto truly is. After the war, the citizens of the region turned their consciousnesses into data and then put it into a quantum supercomputer. He also tells them that Brother and Sister were created to be the ideal vassal for the data, and as they speak, it is already being transferred in the children’s minds. Swindler tries to get to their suspended physical forms multiple times but a barrier keeps pushing her back. Hacker explains that the only way to free the children is from the inside of the supercomputer before transferring his consciousness there. Although he saves the children, he is killed in the process. The episode ends with the Shinkansen blown off the rails.
