Shugo is bathing on the other end of the spring with his back turned to the girls while Mireille then calls over to Shugo telling him to come closer to them. As Shugo decides that he guess its ok, Mireille makes a comment on how nice Ouka's body is as a partial submerged and heated Grunty floats over to Shugo surprising him thinking that it was Ouka's buttocks.
As Shugo and the rest notice the sound of someone else bathing in the hot spring whose moving over to them, Shugo sees that it is Rena Kunisaki who they were looking for in the first place. Shugo then gets embarrassed to see her frontal bare body but as they are touched from their reunion, Rena comes over to Shugo and hugs him while they are still in the bath naked. Shugo then discovers that she is not really Rena and is an imposter and that Rena wouldn't act like that which then the fake Rena transforms into an old man which then reveals to them that the onsen was an illusion as well.
