With both people carrying a resolve they cannot yield, the two of them fight a sad and noble battle.
Meanwhile, Riemu is getting kidnapped by Giller-----
"I'll show you the inside of the Tower of Babel you wanted to see so much!"

Big Insert: It has been 5 years since Monoko's Death----- Tarouza has grown into an adult...
A tanuki which picked up the abandoned baby human Tarouza and raised him as his mother! She sacrificed herself to protect Tarouza when he was being targeted by a wolf and lost her life.
A human that possesses a "cry that can be used to communicate with any animal". Prompted by the death of the mother that raised him, Monoko, he left the village and recently returned. He seeks to unite the cries of all animals in order to create a world where grass-eating animals and meat-eating animals live together in harmony.
Lower Right: Moko
Orphan of Monoko and Tarouza's little sister.
A lynx that questions this world of the strong preying on the weak. Ever since his life was saved by Tarouza, he has vowed to fight for Tarouza's sake. He always travels with him.
Left Center: Jeek
A wolf whom was raised with Tarouza in the tanuki village ever since his family was killed by a bear as a child.
Top: Currently there are only 5 "humans" on the planet including Tarouza!!
Is the key to solving all of the mysteries at the "Tower of Babel"-----?!
Top Left: Giller
He lives inside the "Tower of Babel". Using "Kuou's Notebook" which he stole from Riemu, he constantly researches the monsters called "Chimeras". His true identity is still a mystery...
Top Right: Jyu
He thinks that stealing each others lives is the proper form for animals, so he is against Tarouza's ideal of "everyone getting along". He was severely wounded in a fight with Giller and then disappeared...
Middle Left: Chimera
Mysterious creatures led by Giller.
Below Jyu: Capri
A human girl that was raised by a pack of lions. She was a carnivorous girl that thought of plant-eating animals as "prey", but when she met Tarouza and the others, she became their comrade. But now she lives in the Tower of Babel with Giller!
Below Capri: Riemu
As a child, she was raised by gorillas. But ever since her gorilla family was killed by Giller, she has lived in Tarouza's village. She is the owner of the notebooks Kuou left behind and is currently with Tarouza seeking the Tower of Babel.
Belo Riemu: Kuou
A human which lived before Tarouza and the others. He left behind a notebook in which he wrote the "way to make all animals live in harmony" that he completed. For some reason, the names of the five remaining humans names were written in it and labeled as "Miracle Children"...
Bottom Left Box: Up until last time...
Monoko was killed by wolves. In the depths of despair from knowing what it feels like for your family to be eaten, Tarouza decided to go to the "Tower of Babel" and secretly left the village. All in order to change this world where "the weak are eaten by the strong"...
-----5 years later, Tarouza returned to the village and reunited with Riemu and the others that had were waiting expectantly for him. "We're all ready to go to the Tower of Babel." Then the adult Tarouza went once again set his sights on the "Tower of Babel" with his comrades. But there he found Capri who did not greet him like an old friend...

Tarouza VS. Capri
Giller: It sounds like it's begun.
Two former comrades killing each other.
SFX: OOOOO WAAAAA
Giller: This is all the bonds that you animals have are.
SFX: ZURYU RYU RYU RYU!!
Riemu: When I give the signal, attack.
No matter how strong that bird and that child-shaped Chimera are
with only those two Chimeras here, this situation is a good chance to defeat Giller we won't likely get again.
There said you had something you wanted to ask, right?
Riemu: Before you kill me, I'll listen to what you have to say.
Luke: May I kill her?
Giller: Wait until I instruct you to.
I'm going to ask all of my questions.
SFX: SHURU SHURU SHURU
Giller: Besides this notebook,
do you have another notebook written by Kuou?
Riemu: I don't.
Why would you ask such a thing?
Giller: There are missing sections
of this notebook of Kuou's.
Riemu: Missing sections?
Giller: The energy organ research facility, "Abel".
The code needed to open the door there is not here.
Giller: This notebook has research in "Abel" written in it like it's something very basic.
it does not have the code to get into "Abel" anywhere.
So I expect that that code must be written in another notebook.
I went to the house you lived in with the gorillas,
but someone had taken away all of the books and left nothing behind.
If I could only enter "Abel", I could complete Kuou's unfinished research.
Giller: Eternal life for Chimeras...
And how to breath life
into the ultimate chimera.
You know about it, don't you?
Kuou's other notebook.
Riemu: I do not.
Giller: She does know...
Luke. Without hurting her, take her...
Luke: You... really are weak.
Why did you come before me?
You don't even have the power to kill me.
A sense of self...?
Only kill on my instructions...

SFX: GAH GAH
SFX: DON DON
Riemu: Gu... Uuuu...
Giller: Hmph... If you want to enter the Tower of Babel, I'll let you right in.
You did mention some things about uniting the cries and destroying the chimera...
but that tower is not the kind of place you all think it is.
Let me show you what it's really like.
Giller: But before that... there's something I wanted you to see.
Look closely. That you're comrades killing each other.
SFX: GAN GON DOH
Lion: Do you think animals that eat plants...
are any match for a liooooon?!!
SFX: DON GOOO
SFX: DODODO DODO
Lion: Now I'll finish you!!!
Lion: Wha...... Was my timing off?!
SFX: BABA DOSHIII BAH
How'd he dodge it?
Does that thing have eyes on the back of its head or something?!
Guy: And these aren't the normal movements of horses or cattle!!
What are these guys......?!
Lion: What's going on?!
SFX: DAKADAH DAKADAH DAKADAH
Capri: Everyone, don't be shaken!!!
Form groups of three or more and then take these guys on!!!
Lion: But Capri! These guys' movements are really strange!!
How do we fight them......?
Capri: I know these moves!!!
The source of these movements is Tarouza!!!
Capri: Tarouza can connect to the consciousnesses of many animals...
Capri: and control them!!!
SFX: BABABA BABAH
Lion: Is such a thing possible......?
In that case, target Tarouza!!!
That's right! If we just defeat the one controlling them, then...
Capri: No, there's no need for that!!
Capri: If we continue to deal damage to the plant-eating animals like this
Capri: All of the pain will be transferred to Tarouza...
Capri: and Tarouza will collapse from the pain and no longer be able to control them!!!
Capri: Even if we don't put in the finishing blow, keep pushing like this!!!
They're the ones who'll collapse first!!
That's exactly riiiight!!!
Lion: We'll be the ones to push them back!!!
Lions: There still hasn't been a single death on the lions' side!!!
Lion: That's true, none have died.
Lion: It's because the enemy is not putting in any finishing blows to us.
What do think you're doing?!!
Us lions are seriously trying to kill you like we would ant time we attack pray!!!
Unless you seriously try to kill us, too,
you're just going to die!!
Why are you fighting such a half-assed fight?!
SFX: DOH GAH
SFX: MESHIH DON
SFX: BAGYA ZUSHII
SFX: BEGIII DOSHIIII
Don't make light of uuuuus!!!
SFX: MESHI MESHI
Animal: You're like Tarouza, so you can understand our cries, too, right?
Long ago, tons of my comrades were eaten by you all.
And rather than give into that hatred,
I've chosen the path of living together with you.
So I won't kill you.
I'm pushing my way through.
Animal: We're trying to unite our cries
and live in harmony with you all.
Are you not going to do anything?
Are you not even going to try to find a way to live together with us?
Bull: He said he's going to search in the Tower of Babel
for a way to save all of you meat-eating animals and live together with you.
Capri: Is there such a way in the Tower of Babel?!!
Bull: Tarouza has confidence.
But unless we go into the tower ourselves and find out, there's no way of knowing for certain.
Tarouza has not
Lion: Don't just stand there! Stop him!!
Bit him! Tear him up!! Don't let him get close to the Tower of Babel!!!
Capri, what are you doing?!
Why aren't you give everyone instructions, too?!
Stop the lions......
Capri: No, I can't!
Tarouza's idea still isn't anything but a prediction.
I can't entrust our fate
on something as uncertain as that!!!
Everyone! One more go! The plant-eating animals are...
Bird: Capri! Capri!
Capri: What is it, Hyuun?!
SFX: BASAH BASA
Hyuun: Hurry, go back to the Tower of Babel!!
Hyuun: The separate unit of lions that were left to stand guard at the tower...
are being beaten one after another by just one animal!!
Capri: How can that be?! That unit has quite a few
considerably strong lions in it!!
Hyuun: But they keep being beaten!!
That animal is strange!! At this rate, all of them will die!!!
Hurry and come back!!
The lions at the Tower of Babel are being beaten by some unknown animal!!!
Capri: Going to help them takes priority!!
We're returning to the Tower of Babel!!!
Capri: That's an order!! Hurry, move!!!
We're retreating for now, but as long as you keep trying to enter the Tower of Babe;
we'll going to stop you no matter what!! Got that?!!
Guy: Are you not going to do anything?
Are you not even going to try to find a way to live together with us?
Capri: What's wrong, Giller?
I can't see any dead animals on Tarouza's side or Capri's side.
Quickly, return to the Tower of Babel!!
SFX: BASAH BASAH
Tarou: The animal that's
defeating lions at the Tower of Babel right now...
Who is it?
Deer: All right.
The lions over there stopped fighting as well.
SFX: PIN PIN
Deer: I would hate for either side to kill anyone on the other in a fight like this.
I need that lion girl to do a different job......
Deer: Well, a few things were wrong,
but for now, things are starting to go well in line with your expectations...
