Episodes 9-12 of the mecha anime series. In these episodes Kurau and Christmas have slipped away to California to start a new life, but unbeknownst to them Doug (to help) and Ayaka's strike team (to capture) are hot on their trail. Learning of a Rynax energy plant brings an unpleasant discovery to Kurau, but of much greater concern is evading imprisonment when Ayaka and crew catch up to them. With Christmas captured, Kurau and Doug have no choice but to pursue her and her captors to the moon, where circumstances reveal ulterior motives and bring up the opportunity for both a family reunion and a daring break-out. In its aftermath Kurau and Christmas learn that others have also had close encounters with Rynax, and for many of them the experience was much more detrimental.
