Episode 8: Another suicidal descent into the Guild! During the Monster Stream fishing, Tenshi used her skill, Harmonics, which created a clone of herself.

After the subway train crash, he awakens and helps the other passengers. They discover that both exits are blocked off and everyone waits for rescue to come. With limited water and food, Otonashi barely holds on to sign off that he wants his organs donated. Right as his life fades, the exit opens with rescue. He reawakens with Tenshi patting his head.
