Meanwhile on Earth, the Carranger and Dappu are out on a hike. They were all carrying heavy things, except for young Dappu. He splashes water on them, later when they are preparing the food, he sneezes on them. Because of his continued annoyance, they wrap a towel on him and start beating on him. The girls go on a hike and are upset at Dappu. Dappu sees an alert on a machine he has in a tent and tells the men, but they don't care. On the street, two Bowzock cars appear. They speed by Signalman and he follows them on his Polispeeder, but not before wiping imaginary sweat off his face. The girls head near a quick-stop shop and Youko suggests eating ice cream. Natsumi agrees, but the noise of sirens attract their attention. They watch attently. The Bowzock cars then stop at a plant. The Wumpers try taking the Gorotsuki out of the car, but he refuses. Signalman arrives, the Wumpers open the trunk of the white car and start throwing jackets on Signalman. They board their car, running away. They forget a blue one and teleport away. The blue one cowers in fear at Signalman approaching him. He manages to get away as the Gorotsuki addresses the officer. He kneels to him, his name is ZZ Zeri, a fashion designer. Natsume and Youko arrive and Zeri offers them jackets as presents. They all look at each other in confusion, as Zeri sews them jackets out of a sewing machine.

The girls alert the boys and they are confused. Signalman keeps chasing the girls, as ZZ Zeri watches from a corner. Ritchihiker approaches him and talks about the Anger Jackets.
