The girls get word that the remnants of the Noir Rod have taken control of a powerful missile that threatens to destroy the country. Deciding to stop it themselves, Akko and her friends join forces to pursue the missile. After each girl uses their broom's power to push the others higher, Akko and Diana gain more magical power as Ursula manages to spur on spectators to believe in them. Fighting against the missile and its counterattacks, Akko gets knocked off but is rescued by a chance encounter with the Shooting Star. With support from Diana, Akko uses the full power of the Shiny Rod and the Grand Triskellion to destroy the missile and spead magical happiness across the world, after which the Shiny Rod, having fulfilled its duty, disappears. After the incident, Croix decides to dedicate herself to finding a cure for the Wagandea's curse placed on Ursula, while Akko finally manages to fly on her broom.
Order of appearances
- Akko and her friends's mission to stop the nuclear missile makes a small allusion to the fourth episode Night Fall where Lotte mentioned one of the Night Fall stories she read included Belle stopping a nuclear warhead (though with her bare hands instead of magic).
- This episode bears a few similarities to the 24th episode of Kill la Kill (another anime developed in 2013 by Studio Trigger) where the series took its climax in the fight between Ryuko Matoi and Ragyo Kiryuin
- Ryuko and Ragyo took the final stage of their fight outside of the Earth and into space, while Akko and Diana lured the Noir-Rod-Missile on a wild chase out into space (or most likely as far between the Mesosphere and Exosphere)
- Ryuko sorrowfully parts with her kamui and friend Senketsu due to the latter sacrificing himself to bring Ryuko back to Earth safely; Akko tearfully gives her thanks and farewell to the Shiny Rod as it disintegrates and returns to the Big Dipper constellation soon after reviving Yggdrasil and destroying the missile for good.
- This is the only episode where Constanze provided her dialogue, reacting to Akko's management to fly on her broom.
