Story NotesEdit

  • One year has passed since the disappearance of Spirits.
  • Ellen has lost her memories of Westcott and DEM, and replaced Reine's position in Ratatoskr and Raizen High School. Current technology allows Maria to manifest a physical body without <Rasiel>.
  • Origami takes a picture with Shido in wedding outfits, and discusses Shido's freedom to safely pick one girl, including the late Tohka. Later, Origami is attacked by <Beast>.
  • Nia calls Shido to prepare a meal while she's working on her manga with Ellen and Maria. She then rewards him with a drinking date during which they discuss Shido's plans after graduation. Later, Nia is also attacked by <Beast>.
  • Kurumi reveals that she restored and returned to her human body before Mio's death, and visits Sawa's grave with Shido.
  • Yoshino learns her forgotten human past, including her surname Himekawa and her mother Nagisa, and visits the hospital where she once lived with Shido and Natsumi. She remembers that Yoshinon was a gift from her mother and receives Yoshinon Junior, which she had intended to give to Nagisa before the latter's death.
  • Shido is attacked by the Spirit <Beast>, who claims to have forgotten her name, using ten swords holding the powers of the Sephira Crystals' Angels, but she hesitates when he utters Tohka's name and he is transported to the <Fraxinus EX>.
  • Kotori refuses to let Shido approach <Beast> now that his sealed reiryoku is gone and his continued ability to seal it is unknown, confessing her love for him and her fear of losing him, but he eventually convinces her to allow it. <Beast> invades the briefing room using <Michael's> wormholes, as Shido prepares to confront her.
