Episode 4 is titled “Uta Shirazu no Uta”.
In the training ground at night, Kurusu looks nervous with a sword in his hand, facing Maeda. Maeda bluntly tells Kurusu, who has hesitation in his mind, that his naiveness will destroy his team.
An unnatural dead body, killed by a harlot vampire, was found in Yoshiwara, and Kurusu and his team go undercover. They investigate the brothel to which the dead harlot belonged. Suwa, who got in, meets a harlot, Akari. She gives Suwa her hairpin, and they make a promise.
Just when they feel a moment of peace, word came in that the vampire had been found.
