this is the twenty-fifth chapter
As Hiro watches Zero Two fight in stampede mode, he wonders if she has always been alone after losing her partner. He suddenly grabs her from behind and embraces her, apologizing for thinking about himself and he wants to be with her because he is her partner. Zero Two calms down and they reconnect. Everyone is shocked to Strelizia is back and Hiro is still alive. Everyone is greatly relieved, including Mitsuru but he realizes the klaxosaur is transforming again. Delphinium, Genista, Argentea and Chlorophytum hold the klaxosaur in place and Strelizia quickly delivers the final blow, with Hiro and Zero Two saying they will fly with their wings.
