ZAIA has already won the first two of the five task challenges between HIDEN Intelligence and ZAIA, which will determine the ownership of HIDEN Intelligence. Gai (Nachi Sakuragi) suggests to Aruto (Fumiya Takahashi) that the next battle be a decisive trial using a lawyer (Roy Kishima) wearing the ZAIA Specs. In an event being called marriage fraud, the prosecutor is selected to wear the ZAIA Specs, and a lawyer model Humagear will compete against him. ZAIA wins if they reach a guilty verdict, HIDEN wins if they reach acquittal.
Aruto is reluctant to use a trial as a game in which people’s lives are at stake, however the lawyer Humagear named Bingo (Keisuke Minami) convinces him by saying, “The defendant is innocent, and we can definitely win.”
Defendant Sakaki (Yui Matsumoto) is allegedly married. Sakaki denies this, but the victim Chiharu (Arisa Komiya) presents evidence of text message exchanges between the two of them. Bingo suddenly has to handle an unfavorable situation. However, the prosecutor seems to be withholding conclusive evidence.
