Wearing her new and improved hard suit, Priss speeds through a deserted Tokyo on her equally new and improved Motoslave. She meets Leon at her trailer, and tenderly tells him to stay behind for his own safety. Meanwhile, Linna and Nene have been caught by a tentacle from the Dragon Line, which is also trying to fuse with their hard suits. Sylia attacks the base of the tentacle in vain, and finds herself trapped as well. When Priss arrives, she gives Sylia an idea: Using the capabilities of the new hard suit, the trapped Knight Sabers control the Boomer tentacle, providing Priss with an entry point. Rocketing into the Boomer itself, she finds the core and destroys it, rescuing the rest of the team. The Knight Sabers, Leon, Nigel, Mackey, and Meisio are flush with their victory, but the time for rejoicing is short-lived -- in the dead of night, Sylia is awakened by a nightmare which comes true: Boomers have invaded their headquarters. (American release in 2000.)
