Cid turns Louise into a world-destroying Homura Akemi, but was stopped by Garrosh letting his arm explode, but the scales shook: while Grimmjow turns to the good side, Cid and Guile went so far as brainwashing Michelle to stick with them and forced Kasumi to join them if she wants a shot to save Shinji (whom they detained) and reveals that they're being "led" by Garrosh and Grimmjow's sister Pascal. The next stage would be set on Kanetsugu's (who has been told by Shin Chan that he has hidden powers) hometown...
