An armed and perverted group of Orcs take over a comic book shop, taking human hostages and making outrageous and ridiculous demands. Since the police can do nothing because of the Interspecies Exchange Accord, which prohibits humans from harming liminals, Ms. Smith calls in her special unit of liminals known as the Monster Ops: Neutralization (MON) Squad; the group consists of Team Leader Zombina (a zombie), expert sniper Manako (a Cyclops), direct action specialist Tionishia (an ogre) and infiltration specialist Doppel (a "doppelganger" or shape-shifter). The Orcs are soon under arrest and the hostages freed, with Ms. Smith dealing out her own special brand of punishment to the Orc leader. Later, Zombina and Tionishia raid the house where Kasegi had been keeping the Arachne, but the Arachne escapes, leaving behind a paper with Kimihito's address. Ms. Smith contacts the household to warn them, but too late; Kimihito has already been abducted by the Arachne and taken to a deserted warehouse. The Arachne introduces herself as Rachnera Arachnera, who had been "sold" by her host family to Kasegi. Her attempts to "punish" Kimihito are interrupted by the arrival of the police and the MON Squad, who surround the warehouse. Rachnera plans to use Kimihito as a hostage, but Kimihito (who thinks they're after him for assaulting Kasegi) intends to take the blame and turn himself in. Rachnera decides she likes Kimihito and once the police situation has been satisfactorily resolved convinces Ms. Smith (who, as her Coordinator, had been extremely negligent) to let her stay at Kimihito's house.
