Ai: Meeting with Clear is the nineteenth episode of Final Fantasy: Unlimited.
Drifting through the Ocean Puzzle, Jane and her crew pass into a new section of the puzzle, but notice no change outside or inside. Meanwhile in one of the corridors Ai and Yu are seen arguing, but are interrupted when Ai's face seems to be floating outside. After her initial shock, Ai tests the face's mimicking ability by making many faces, which it copies perfectly, until she yells at it. When the face attempts to copy her, it seems to drown. However it reappears scaring and angering Ai.
In her anger she falls out of the portal she was viewing the face from, disappearing into the ocean before Yu can catch her.
The Sky Beneath the WavesEdit
Tumbling through the ocean, Ai eventually falls through the bottom of it into a strange jungle like place.
Meanwhile, it is revealed that Pist has located another fragment of Omega, and Crux watches as he celebrates his victory and praises his own work.
Back aboard Jane, Cid declares that they can not follow Ai in Jane, as the sky is at the bottom of the ocean, and without flight Jane would be able to reach her, but not return. However, Yu and Lisa resolve to rescue her using Chobi and his flight abilities.
Beneath the sea, Ai requests Poshepoket for help, but Poshepoket's mischievous nature wins about, burring her under a pile of food. As she recovers, Ai hears laughter nearby, and after a moment spies a young man nearby in strange clothes and has something resembling a jellyfish over his head and shoulders.
When she asks him about his strange clothes and tries to touch them, the boy jumps back explaining that if she touches him, he will destroy her. Before he can explain fully, they are attacked by some of Pist's monsters.
Unable to fight back, the two escape, with a little help from Poshepoket. After Ai demonstrates the ability to touch the boy, he takes her to hide in a cave. While there, the boy explains that the monsters were after him and his siblings, and gives his name as Clear. He theorizes as to the reason for Ai being able to touch him is the clothes he is wearing, which he claims are made from Flight Water, the substance needed to make Cid's airship, Silvia, fly.
After sharing his sorrow rooted in his power to destroy whatever he touches, Ai compares him to Omega, causing him to confirm that he is indeed Omega.
Meanwhile, the Earl is becoming impatient with Pist, who explains that he has not delivered the latest trap as he has diverted his efforts to hunting another piece of Omega, which is hinted to be Clear. When the Earl realizes what Pist has found, he immediately becomes uncontrollably excited, while Oscha expresses his concerns over Pist's ability to capture him.
Back in the cave, Ai expresses her indecision of her reaction of the revelation of Clear's and Omega's link. She recalls all the destructive power of Omega and the other parts they have encountered before, but notes how different Clear is from his siblings.
Meanwhile, Chobi, Lisa and Yu soar overhead, searching for Ai. Kaze is shown to be searching on foot, when he happens across the banana peel that Poshepoket used to help Ai and Clear escape earlier.
Returning to the cave, Clear reveals a very different side to Omega; after it was shattered and separated, Omega's pieces began to search each other out, but they do not mean to cause the destruction they leave in their wake; it is simply by existing that they cause such destruction.
Ai invites Clear to join Jane and her crew, and lead them to Tenos, were the flight water can be located. After initially hesitating, Clear accepts Ai's offer and agrees to lead them to Tenos.
As the pair turn to leave the cave, they spot Kaze at the entrance, who draws his handgun and levels it at Clear. Ai immediately shield's Clear with her body. As she tries to convince Kaze to lower his weapon, the monsters attack again.
Kaze displays surprising agility as he fends the three off, with only his side arm. After a brief struggle, Kaze his caught and slammed into the ground, and as Clear attempts to flee with Ai, his glove slips off, sending her plummeting to the ground, and his hand becomes engulfed in light.
Kaze gasps as he sees Ai falling, and quickly rises to save her, however she is caught by Chobi and the others before he can reach her. One of the monsters attacks Clear, but moments before the attack hits, Clear's entire body is covered in light, stopping the attack before it can strike him.
Using the light, Clear quickly dispatches the monsters, completely shattering that section of the Ocean Puzzle, and shifting Jane and her crew into the next section.
As Pist marvels at Omega's power, the Earl appears on a projection screen, and seems extremely angry.
Back aboard Jane, Ai reunites with the others, with Ai and Yu resolving to drop their argument. After Ai glances over to Kaze, who has resumed his usual position, she realizes she is still holding Clear's glove.
