They entered a deadly game of tag, where the player’s goal was to find a hidden explosive in the building.

After this game, we saw Aguni again during the Beach Arc. His friend Mad Hatter tried to kill him because he thought he was trying to take his place of leadership over the Beach.

Everyone wakes up at a hospital and learns that a meteorite had hit Tokyo.

He was connected to a machine, and it seemed like he was in a coma.

Everyone except the characters Banda and Yaba wanted to go back to the real world. Even Ann, who was really close to dying, trying to fight to survive, did so in the real world as well. We saw her in a coma, just like Aguni; both of them managed to survive. This also includes Arisu, Chishiya, Usagi, Niragi, and Akane.
