With no explanation of the unexpected incident, they surprisingly develop supernatural abilities. As they begin to find means to survive in the strange places they end up at, conflicts emerge as the boundaries of law and freedom begin to blur, and they realize that they themselves may pose a far greater existential threat to one another than any other supernatural occurrence.

Sonny Boy Episode 5 Spoilers
In episode 4, Nagara manages to use his power to leap between worlds briefly when he is about to fall head-first on a stone while trying to jump in a lake. All the students who watch him do it start to believe that once he has full control of his powers, they can easily go back to their world. However, Nagara himself is unsure as he is not entirely in control of his abilities and knows nothing about its limits. Later, Cap tells him, Nozomi, and Mizuho about the Monkey League.
Sadly, they can’t see the animals play, so they approach Ace, who has the gear called monkey getter, which will allow them to watch the game. However, he agrees to give them the gear if they manage to hit one shot against him in a baseball game. But if they fail then, Nagara will carry everyone back to the real world even if he ends up dying in the process. He agrees to the condition, but on match day, Ace easily defeats the team of Nagara, Nozomi, and Mizuho on his own.
Later, Nagara tries to transport everyone back to the real world, but he fails to do so, and Rajdhani argues that he only has the power to leap between places in the world they are in right now. So, he can’t take them back to the real world. In episode 5, a school teacher named Ms. Aki will arrive on the shore and will probably start taking things under her control. The students may learn some shocking rules of their new world.
