Mitsuki who in Episode 5 was told to go rogue by her boss and find her love Hinata was finally seen acting on it in Episode 7. She planned ahead and sent a mail that declared her in charge of the operation while bringing down communications to ensure entry into the facility. She along with Kawaguchi (Daisuke Tsuji) and Hinata's father Mr Murai (Togo Igawa) take over the operation and connect the stolen government equipment to start their search for the lost shuttle. Amidst the many frequencies, she makes the engineers search for the frequency and pattern that sounded after the impact on the HOSHI shuttle. Even after a long time, they yielded no results as there were just too many frequencies in space. Just when they were losing patience, Mitsuki, who didn't lose hope, notices an anomaly which was a lone, isolated signal. They painstakingly try locking onto it as they realize it is the distress beacon from the HOSHI. Along the way, they realize that they may have even heard the aliens' network.

Things suddenly take a turn for the worse when the actual authorities in charge of the operation burst in after finding out about the deception. As the device locks in on the HOSHI's signal, Mitsuki is dragged away leaving her unable to establish the connection. 

The character was so close yet so far as she nearly came close to getting some sort of answer. With the authorities back, will she be able to make contact again? Will they listen and if they do, could they manage to track it again? Don't ask us how but Mitsuki believes that Hinata is still alive and out there, with the woman not giving up easily? But is Hinata really out there and will she be found? Many questions arise as we are left in suspense of the fate of Mitsuki.
