As Marika makes her way home, Gruier calls her back to award her a medal, gaining a lot of fame back home. As Marika starts her second year of school, she finds Gruier's stay at the yacht club has been extended, joined by Grunhilde. Later that day, Gruier visits Marika to give her proper thanks, giving her an ID ring used by Marika's father which Gruier had used to sneak aboard the Bentenmaru. After a successful day of recruiting new yacht club members, Marika invites Gruier and Grunhilde to her house for dinner. As the Bentenmaru takes on a job transporting illegal materials including a group of experimental monkeys, Marika gets the idea to take Gruier and Grunhilde to the zoo.
