Released January 24th, 2011.

A girl awakens inside a suitcase, having forgotten everything except her name, Kazumi. When she opens the suitcase, she finds herself in the home of a man named Souichirou Tachibana. Souichirou explains that he had bought a bomb in an identical suitcase, intending to blow up a shopping mall as an act of revenge against the mall's owner, who tricked him into selling his store. However, he switched his suitcase with another one when he bumped into a mysterious girl. Souichirou gets a phone call offering to trade Kazumi for the bomb at the mall. Kazumi goes along with it to find the identity of her kidnapper. While being taken to the mall in her suitcase, Kazumi asks Souchirou not to set off the bomb, saying that he's a good person. When he finds the other suitcase, Souichirou is stopped by two high school girls (though the next chapter calls them middle-school girls), named Umika and Kaoru. They open the suitcase containing the bomb, starting the timer. At this point, a squad of police officers led by a female detective appear, telling Souchirou he's under arrest. Kazumi breaks out from her suitcase and announces that Souichirou is not a bad person. Souichirou is unable to stop the bomb, which is close to exploding. Kazumi closes her eyes and thinks "Please...stop, bomb!", causing her earring bells to glow. At this point, Umika passes the bomb to Kaoru, who kicks it into the air. It then harmlessly explodes into smoke, shocking nearly everyone. The mysterious girl from before, who was watching, mutters that the bomb was supposed to be real.

At this point, Umika and Kaoru reveal they know Kazumi and take her to Umika's house, where they all live together while their parents are working overseas. Apparently, Kazumi had been missing since the day before. Kazumi is taken to her room and falls asleep. When she wakes up, she finds a note from Umika and Kaoru saying the detective asked them to meet with her. Kazumi cooks a large meal for herself. When the detective arrives at the house, having apparently missed Umika and Kaoru, Kazumi shares the meal with her. Kazumi then announces that the detective had set up the entire incident with the bomb to make herself look good, and she arrived at Kazumi's house to kill her. The detective agrees, saying that she followed a lead given to her by someone else, and that someone also gave her the power to kill people without leaving decisive evidence. She then transforms into a monster. Kazumi begins getting strange flashbacks as the monster attacks her. When the monster grabs her earring-bell, she suddenly yells at her not to touch it, breaks the monsters wrist, and then transforms into a magical girl. Kazumi defeats the monster with her new powers, which turns her back into a human. The chapter ends with Umika and Kaoru running in to save Kazumi, and Kazumi telling them she can use magic.
