After remembering his childhood dream of wanting to become a hero, Akira hears that the aquarium has a special shark-proof suit that can protect against zombie bites. Akira and Kencho go to the aquarium to acquire this suit so that Akira can use it to save survivors from zombie threats.
While at the aquarium rescuing people, a giant zombie shark exhibit escapes and goes on a rampage. Determined to be a hero, Akira confronts the dangerous zombie shark while wearing the protective suit.
Shizuka suddenly runs in front of it, putting herself in peril. Determined to save her, Akira confronts the shark directly and fights to protect Shizuka from its snapping jaws.
