"The Street Corner of Bitterness" is the 14th episode of the season "Three Vessels" and the 66th episode from total.
Convenience store worker Tsuzuki Kinya offers to take care of Kashiwagi Hidemi (who Yuzuki briefly sees at the end of the last episode) after she misses the last train home. As they are walking together, someone takes a picture of them and posts it online. Because Tsuzuki looks like a delinquent, the people around Kashiwagi become suspicious. Kashiwagi will send the person who uploaded the picture to Hell for giving her a bad reputation. Yuzuki can now sense people who are about to contact Ai, and seeks out Kashiwagi to try to persuade her to stop her revenge. Kashiwagi and Yuzuki try to locate Tsuzuki's store only to find that he has been arrested for assault. Kashiwagi types in Tsuzuki's name on the Hell Correspondence with her mobile phone instead, since his assault charge may land in the newspapers. Tsuzuki breaks out of jail with a gun and takes Yuzuki hostage. Kashiwagi tells him to stop hoping he will recognize her, but he doesn't at first. Saddened, she pulls the string. The next day, Kashiwagi is seen afterwards wearing excessive jewelry, make up and tattoos. Yuzuki's resolve to stop vengeful people wavers as she senses many people about to contact the Hell Link.
