Fifth part of the anime series about online global gamers. Enraged and drunk on the terrible strength gained from the Forest of Pain event, Haseo embarks on a ruthless search for information concerning the whereabouts of Tri-Edge. His brutal inquisition leaves a trail of killed Player Characters in its wake. Saddened by this, Tabby is inspired to create a guild dedicated to healing Haseo and his victims. With the help of Tabby's newfound friends and Tohta, the new PC body of Tan's Tawaraya, the 'Paw Pad Squadron' is born. Meanwhile, the mysterious Pi and Master Yata watch events unfold with intense interest, hoping to witness the awakening of Haseo's special power. When Haseo's search leads him to fight Midori, a player character whose expert fighting abilities allow her to run a profitable 'hit me if you can' business and who has survived a battle with Tri-Edge himself, they are sure that it will be enough.
