After you’ve accepted the quest and viewed the cutscene, you’ll need to choose two of the following students to participate in the friendly battle, Juna, Kurt, Musse, or Ash. In order to beat both Ada and Fritz you’ll want to work on taking one down at a time, so for the sake of this walkthrough we will begin with Fritz.

Once you’ve completed the battle the quest will be completed and you’ll gain another Summer Festival Ticket and 6000 Mira.
