Nanachi explains that they came from the Idofront, Bondrewd's base in the bottom of the 5th layer. It is the only place where one can enter the 6th layer, and given Riko and Reg's very unique origins, Nanachi believes it will be impossible for them to avoid a confrontation with Bondrewd.
Once in the 5th layer, the trio crosses a frozen path. Reg goes fishing, and though the Hamashirama he catches doesn't look tasty, Riko is able to make a decent meal out of it. Nanachi asks Riko to teach them how to cook and Riko agrees. Nanachi says they wants to be able to make good food when they meets Mitty again. Reg is moved by this. Nanachi says they don't actually believe it will happen, but Riko says that at the bottom of The Abyss, it may be possible. Nanachi admits to themself that she had always wanted to explore The Abyss and is having fun.
The Idofront comes into view. Nanachi says they are easily within Bondrewd's field of vision now. They are approached by a girl who asks if they are her father's guests.
