Kyon, wearing Nagato's glasses, had to confront the creature in a well-lit location and stare directly at it, maximizing his visual "vulnerability" to lure it. Frightened, he called Nagato, who told him the task was "not hard". Unfortunately, Kyon had trouble, as the creature looked just like his grandfather when young (like Kyon, in fact) dressed in an Imperial Japanese Army uniform with a katana, advancing menacingly only him. Worse, his sister became interested in his activities and she showed up, putting herself in danger. Kyon couldn't even look toward her, but shouted at her to leave. Left alone, the creature jumped at Kyon, but as it passed through the glasses it exploded, leaving behind a small smear.
Kyon's grandmother returned to existence, having thought she had merely fallen asleep.
