Makenshi: The White Etude is the fourth episode of Final Fantasy: Unlimited.
Ai, Yu, Lisa, and Chobi arrive at the station just as the Interdimensional Train leaves, stranding the group. Yu begins to despair, saying that Chobi cannot predict when the next train will arrive, apart from "a long time from now".
One of the tiles on the station's endless stairs begins to move and the thief from before peers out. Ai captures him, and begin questioning the thief.
He appears to be strangely ignorant of many things, claiming he ate Ai's bag and contents, despite the inedible qualities of many items within. His name is Fungo. He agrees to take the group to the others, and backtracks to their hideout where they find many people training, and meet their leader Knave.
Makenshi receives directions from Crux, and is the first to thank her for her efforts.
Knave offers to give Lisa a tour of the base, explaining that many of their members are survivors of Chaos, and its attacks on various worlds. Their organization was created to discover the truth behind Chaos and someone known as The Earl. The others are treated to clean clothes, and a chance to look around the base. They spot Kaze, having his handgun examined by a man named Cid.
In the underground base, Cid returns Kaze's handgun. He notices Kaze's Magun, which he refuses to allow Cid to examine, simply saying that it is his heart. He wordlessly departs, despite the others' questioning.
Cid notices Chobi's pendant and claims he was the one who built it, noting that it has been heavily modified. He wants to ride the Interdimensional Train.
The Fruit Village is shrouded in heavy mist with Makenshi standing in the midst of it. He uses a stick to shatter the residences, and creates an earthquake, which is felt by the Comodeen. Ai and Yu bid farewell to Lisa, and the men prepare for attack. The roof collapses, separating Ai, Yu, and Lisa.
Lisa spots a dragon, similar to the one seen at the Black Tower. Makenshi appears in the mist, and Kaze stands to face him. The Comodeen's attacks appear to be useless, with all but Kaze sent flying, while Makenshi is still only wielding a stick.
Lisa has found Ai and Yu, but both are unconscious. Kaze reveals that Makenshi is the one he is looking for, and opens fire upon the swordsman, to no effect. Makenshi draws his sword and the two do battle, destroying the base of the Comodeen.
Lisa cries out for Kaze to stop, but he refuses, saying his only purpose is to kill this man no matter the casualties. When he tries to activate the Magun, the light fades, and remains frozen. Makenshi summons another of his dragons, appearing to kill Kaze.
