Chapter 7 - Pre-Wedding Mystery Tour
Kinari first appears in the hot springs with her bikini on, greeting her fans with a big smile on her face. The group later joins in drinking with her fans.
She becomes a central puzzle piece in a murder of Nobuo Takeda. She is the first person to see his corpse after deciding to go out to look for him. The group finds her standing in front of the door with blood coming out from it. She screams, but is quickly reassured by Takumi Hijirihara, who reveals his identity as a Future Foundation member.
After Takumi finds out that Mimiko Tomizawa is the killer, the latter explains that the reason for the murder was that in her previous life Kinari was a great feudal lord from the days of yore while Mimiko was her samurai and that she had to protect her from Nobuo, who was groping her at any opportunity he could.
