They decide to test out the screen and finds that Gojo is the only one that can't enter, both Utahime and Yoshinobu head inside.[10] Once inside, the two encounter Juzo Kumiya and Yoshinobu decides to take fight him alone while she goes to look for the students.[11][12] As Utahime heads towards the students, she encounters another intruder.
