|Usher takes Catlabor and Kazukimaru to the beach, where one of them dies and Atsushi-Ya gains three new employees.|
- Kazukimaru (killed)
- Unnamed bird (first appearance)
- Unnamed cat (first appearance)
- Unnamed sword (first appearance)
- Tonogai and Shiozawa Pesuto's tombstones
At the beach, the trio stand and watch the ocean. While Usher and Catlabor admire how "ocean-like" is the ocean, a cat, a bird, and a sword with one eye and sharp teeth are beating Kazukimaru with kicks and swords, intending to kill it and spill its guts. Usher orders the three to stop, but it is too late: Kazukimaru is dead. Catlabor announces that, after Rat's death, only Usher and Catlabor are left. Usher therefore offers to hire the cat, the sword, and the bird as employees of Atsushi-Ya. When the trio agree, Usher joins his new friends in playfully splashing in the ocean, while Catlabor holds onto Kazukimaru's corpse.
- Catlabor refers to the deaths of only Rat and Kazukimaru when claiming that only it and Usher are left. But in doing so, Catlabor ignores Tonogai, who died in GAIDEN 6, and You, who stopped appearing starting with GAIDEN 7.
