Hayase won the championship after defeating Fushi in the finals. Now, Hayase makes a surprising proposal in "To Your Eternity" Episode 17.

Fushi is wounded after the battle. Hayase announces she wants to make Fushi her own thing. She ends up capturing Fushi and takes him back to her room. Meanwhile, the people of Janada are stirred up after Hayase's announcement.

The official synopsis of "To Your Eternity" Episode 17 suggests Tonari and friends will fight back and try their best to rescue Fushi from Hayase.

Tonari and the other children boldly challenge Hayase. Can they bring back Fushi?

In the last episode of the anime, Fushi and the other children celebrated their victory against the Nokker. During the celebration, the children asked Fushi about his past.

Fushi shared how Nokkers were after his abilities. He said he can take the form of almost anything. In fact, the last Nokker that looked like a bear was one of Fushi's forms.

The second half of the episode showcased the battle between Hayase and Fushi.

"In the beginning, an 'orb' is cast unto Earth. 'It' can do two things: change into the form of the thing that stimulates 'It'; and come back to life after death. 'It' morphs from orb to rock, then to wolf, and finally to boy, but roams about like a newborn who knows nothing. As a boy, 'It' becomes Fushi. Through encounters with human kindness, Fushi not only gains survival skills but grows as a 'person.' But his journey is darkened by the inexplicable and destructive enemy Nokker, as well as cruel partings with the people he loves," read the official series synopsis of "To Your Eternity," according to Crunchyroll.

The cast of the anime includes Reiji Kawashima as Fushi, Yuuko Natsuyoshi as Mia, Yu Kobayashi as Sandel, Aya Uchida as Parona, Eri Inagawa as Tonari, Taku Yashiro as Gugu, Kenjiro Tsuda as The Beholder, Sayuri Hara as Penna, Rie Hikisaka as March, Nobuyuki Kobushi as Uroy, Mitsuki Saiga as Hayase, Manaka Iwami as Rean, Konomi Kohara as Oopa and Atsushi Abe as Shin.
