Publisher's SummaryEdit

Now──let’s commence the beginning of the end of the war (date).

To the Spirit of Origin who finally appeared, the Spirits challenge her to a battle in order to stop her, but against that overwhelming power, they collapse one by one……Then, Shido himself confronts the main culprit.

Short SummaryEdit

  • Reine is revealed to be a clone of Mio Takamiya. The two merge together after the latter kills Kurumi by emerging from her body.
  • Mio restores Shido's memories of his past life as Shinji Takamiya.
  • Mio decides to erase Shido's memories in an attempt to completely restore Shinji, as well as retrieve the Sephira Crystals from the Spirits to cut off their paths.
  • Woodman defeats Ellen but burns up his remaining lifespan from using <Wodan>. Shido also defeats Westcott and chooses not to finish him off, but he is killed by Mio shortly afterward to retrieve Nia’s Crystal.
  • Tohka is revealed to be the only Spirit apart from Mio who was never born human; hence the reason why she didn't have a name prior to meeting Shido. She revived herself from her Crystal with encouragement from her Inverse self after Mio slaughtered all the Spirits, but is annihilated by Mio’s final Angel Ain.
  • A clone of Kurumi’s sent into the future with Zafkiel’s Eleventh Bullet: <Yud Aleph> arrives to covertly remind Shido that he still has her Sixth Bullet: <Vav> before Mio kills her. Shido uses <Vav> to travel back in time one day prior to the final battle between DEM and Ratatoskr.
  • In order to save everyone and change the future, Shido plans to make Mio fall for him, by taking her clone Reine out on a date.
