I Don’t Want to Lose! I’m Believing in Hikaru ("Maketakunai! Hikaru o shinjite...", 負けたくない!ヒカルを信じて...) is the fifth episode of Angelic Layer.


Misaki enjoys playing Angelic Layer and she loves Hikaru with all her heart, but when she goes up against the Power-type Vasquez, her confidence and self-esteem falters and has Hikaru engage in the 'hit and run' technique during battle, winning by a sheer stroke of luck. This angers Hatoko, who claims that Misaki has stopped believing in Hikaru and in herself.
