Character Introductions: Route, Ken, Mary, Asteroid Brightman
Style Change: Cross Fusion (Netto)

Netto and Rockman meet with a female guide program, Route, in an automobile museum. Although Route was once developed to manage the auto pilot system of a car, it was determined that the use of such a system was unpractical and now she works as the role of a museum Navi.

Meanwhile, a criminal by the name of Ken must steal a large amount of cars in order to save his girlfriend Mary from a ringleader. Slur grants upon him Asteroid Brightman in order to help him in his dark quest. That night, the museum system is hijacked by Asteroid Brightman, and throughout the city cars began acting on their own! Although Meijin too is unable to control his car, Netto requests aid from Route who comes to him begging for help.

Netto and Meijin track down the location of the criminals, and goes to face them. Netto uses Cross Fusion to battle Brightman in the real world, but he is eventually overpowered. Not wanting to see her friends hurt, Route sacrifices herself in order to stun Brightman long enough for Netto to delete him permanantly.

The next day, Netto and Rockman go to visit the newly installed backup data of Route at the museum. Meijin warns Netto that she will not remember them, but Netto is convinced that they will become friends again.

Ryouko's Note: Route is actually very cute. Many people are also happy at the return of Brightman. :)
