Publisher's SummaryEdit

「On your knees. It’s time to start the punishment session of love.」The fourth Spirit, Itsuka Kotori appears before the worst Spirit, Kurumi. 「Kotori, what are you!? 」「Shido’s cute little sister.」The beginning of everything occurred 5 years ago ――!?

Fujimi Shobo's SummaryEdit

Saving the worst Spirit Kurumi also meant saving Mana. In the end, Shido couldn’t do anything. If Kotori had not appeared at that time, everything would have been over. 「Five years ago, I became a Spirit. Shido’s recovery ability was originally my power.」She became a Spirit. The first Spirit sealed by Shido. The case arises of when Origami’s parents were killed by a Spirit five years ago. 「Not today, but tomorrow I’ll go on a date with Onii-chan.」The time limit is a single day. Be it the cute little sister or the confident Commander, to save her go on a date and fall in love!?―.
