Plot

Tohka Dead End

As Shido wakes up, Reine greets him and informs him that she is the Analysis Officer here. Despite not having a license, she assures him that she can handle simple nursing. Afterwards, she tells him that he was brought to the medical office of <Fraxinus> after they found him unconscious. As Shido prepares to ask more questions, she responds by saying that she is bad at answering questions, so he should save his questions for when he meets the commander of the ship. At that moment, Reine stumbles and hits her head on the wall as she was walking towards the entrance of the room. As Shido voices his concern, she tells him that she has been sleepy recently. Following this, she tells him that she hasn’t had any sleep for 30 years, shocking Shido. She informs Shido that she has an extreme case of insomnia. She then tells Shido that it’s time for her medicine. As Shido voices concern for her health, she begins taking out numerous sleeping pills and consumes them like they were candy. Afterwards, Reine brings Shido to the main deck, where the commander is.

Reine as the new physics teacher

The next day, Shido finds out that a new teacher has collapsed. As it turns out, the person was Reine, who had transferred in as a new physics teacher and the assistant homeroom teacher for Class 2-4. As Reine starts a conversation with Shido, she mistakes Shido’s name for Shintarou. Instead of correcting herself, she just starts abbreviating his name to Shin instead. As they proceed to the physics preparation room, she informs Shido that they will begin his training to win over the Spirits. As they are greeted by Kotori, Reine announces the start of Shido’s torture, or training as she quickly corrects herself. As Shido expresses his shock at having to play a galge, Reine and Kotori look at him with eyes like he had said something inappropriate. They inform Shido that the game is 15+, rather than 18+. Reine scratches her head, telling Shido that he shouldn’t be able to play 18+ games since he was only 16. As Shido voices his protest against his training, she states that she would remove an article of clothing every time Shido makes a wrong choice.

For the second stage of Shido’s training, he was told to flirt with actual girls. For Tama-sensei, she gave Shido the suggestion, via intercom, that he should mention marriage. She figures that a person that was 29 years old like Tama-Sensei would be sensitive to the word. However, she didn’t expect her plan to be super effective. Later, as Shido is about to confront the Spirit, Reine assists him by using the Realizer to measure the mental state of the girl. During the decision-making process, Reine voted for option three, since it was the one that made the most sense logically to her and would allow Shido to control the direction of the conversation if it went well. After the name Tome was rejected, Reine voices her surprise, feeling that it was a great old-styled name.

The next day, Reine and Kotori decide to take their conversation to a family restaurant. Reine asks Kotori why she chose Shido to be the negotiator with the Spirits. In response, Kotori makes Reine promise her that she won’t tell anyone else. Kotori says she is not related by blood to her brother. Neither seeming amused nor surprised, Reine tilted her head slightly. She makes a pose that seems to be asking if Kotori is deliberately changing the conversation. Kotori follows up by saying that when Shido was adopted, he seemed suicidal because he had been abandoned by his real mother. Reine reacts strangely upon hearing this. When Kotori asks what is wrong, Reine responds by saying that it is nothing and asks Kotori to continue. Kotori tells her that because of this, Shido has become unusually responsive towards the despair in other people, to the point where he would help a complete stranger with a melancholic expression without a second thought. However, Reine responds that she isn’t asking for an emotional response. She directly questions Kotori on what is he exactly. Letting out a sigh, Kotori plans to respond. However, she unintentionally sprays Reine with water after seeing Shido and Tohka enter the restaurant. Following a delayed reaction, she spits out tea towards Kotori after seeing the two together as well.

Reine as a waitress

Reine disguised as a waitress

As Kotori declares F-08•Operation <Tengu Holiday>, Reine’s face twitches and she asks if Kotori is serious. As part of the operation, Reine disguises herself as a waitress, leaving a note telling Shido that <Ratatoskr> will assist him from the shadows for the remainder of his date with Tohka. As the date progresses, Reine reports that the numbers are much more stable than yesterday, but Tohka still thinks of Shido as only a trustworthy friend. After Shido was shot accidentally by Origami, Reine remained calm about the situation and continued to observe Tohka's battle, collecting data like everything was normal. After Tohka was sealed, Reine did numerous physical examinations in order to analyze Tohka’s status after being sealed. Then, she did the paperwork necessary for her to transfer into Shido’s class, giving her the family name Yatogami in the process.

Yoshino Puppet

Reine and Kotori arrive to explain to Shido that they brought Tohka to his house for two reasons. First, it was designed as more training to help Shido approach other Spirits. Secondly, Reine informs Shido that it is part of Tohka’s aftercare. Tohka’s mental state is happiest when she is around Shido. Presently, there is an invisible path between Shido and Tohka that circulates her powers. However, if Tohka becomes upset, her powers will return to her. After that is decided, Reine returns to <Fraxinus> after making the preparations to use the second floor guest room to temporarily house Tohka until the new Spirit mansion is finished building. Later at night, Reine returned and told Kotori that the preparations were complete to move Shido to Tohka’s bed.

After the Spacequake alarm went off, Reine pointed the direction for the others to go to the underground shelter. She then caught Shido by the collar and told him that they were going to <Fraxinus>. When Shido asks if it is okay not to bring Tohka along, she responds by saying that it is safe to have Tohka evacuate to the shelter with everyone else since Tohka isn’t that different from other humans when sealed. After arriving at the bridge of the <Fraxinus>, Reine resumes her position of monitoring the Spirit’s mental state.

Reine at restaurant

Reine at the restaurant

After Tohka walks in on Shido kissing Yoshino, Reine tells everyone to leave Tohka to her. Then, Reine informs Shido that there are delicate traits in a woman’s heart. The next day, Reine arrives at the Itsuka house to talk to Tohka. Shido informs her that Tohka has locked herself in her room since yesterday. Knocking on the door, she invites Tohka to eat outside, which attracts the hungry Spirit's attention. As they arrive at a restaurant, Reine asks Tohka for the source of her irritation. As Tohka struggles for an answer, Reine replies that it seems Tohka hates it when Shin is with another woman. Tohka replies that she is not sure, but she feels frustrated after seeing Shido kiss another woman. Clearing the misunderstanding, Reine tells Shido that the kiss was a complete accident. She assures Tohka that Shido cares deeply for her; otherwise, he would have never risked his life to save her. As Tohka leaves to apologize to Shido, Reine is left wondering what to do with all the food that Tohka ordered.

After Shido confronts the barrier that Yoshino put up, Reine analyzes the constructions and finds that it is a fortress of ice that commences an auto-counterattack when it reacts to the output of the magic attacks from AST’s CR-Units. As Shido finally manages to approach Yoshino, he remembers what Reine told him. From her analysis, Reine concludes that there is another personality within Yoshino that appears only when she wears the puppet. She theorizes that Yoshino probably gave birth to a new personality in order to restrain her own powers from hurting anyone. She then tells Shido that he would be lying if he said that he didn’t want to save this kind and gentle little girl.

Kurumi Killer

At first, Reine is mentioned by Yoshino, as the person who gave Yoshino the sunhat. However, Reine's first proper appearance is on the <Fraxinus>, when Shido shows Kurumi around the school. When the choices come up, Reine is the only one who votes for the third choice, which is to visit the cafeteria.

Later, Kotori takes Shido to the physics lab. Reine is waiting for him there and turns the computer on. Accidentally, Reine shows him the sequel to "Falling Love- My Little Shido", but then shows him a recording of the previous night. In it, Kurumi is killed by Mana Takamiya. Once it ends, Kotori and Reine encourage Shido to invite Kurumi out on a date before she gets killed again. When Shido has to date Tohka, Origami, and Kurumi at the same time, Reine compliments Tohka's clothing. Once Shido meets with Kurumi, the choices for the date come up, and Reine suggests that number three (going to a lingerie shop) is a good choice, based on Kurumi's previous actions. Later that night, when Tohka tries to cheer up Shido in regard to his struggles to save Kurumi, she mentions that Reine told her what happened between Kurumi and Mana.

Afterward, Reine is shown in the Fraxinus researching Mana. She makes a complicated face as she explains to Kotori that Mana is indeed Shido's blood-related sister. Also, she's not from the AST, but rather from DEM. When Reine tells the commander about Mana's body being engineered with magic, she seems furious, surprising Kotori as she has never seen her like that. When Shido prepares to confront Kurumi at school, Reine tells him that Kotori has gone away for an urgent matter and that she will guide him today.

Once Kurumi activates her <City of Devouring Time>, Reine briefs Shido on it, stating that it is indeed caused by Kurumi. Later, when Shido is facing Kurumi on the rooftop, Reine informs him of her mental state. When Kurumi summons a Spacequake, Reine tells Shido that it's like Kurumi is afraid of him. Shido decides to jump off the rooftop, and asks Reine if he would survive, to which she says he'll most likely will. However, she is surprised when Shido actually jumps off the roof.

Itsuka Sister

As Shido wakes up in the Fraxinus medical bay, Reine calms down Shido as he frantically asks questions about what happened to everyone. She informs him of what happened and confirms that everyone is alive. When he asks her about Kotori, Reine and Yoshino accompany him to the quarantine room. Once they get there, Yoshino leaves and Reine tells Shido that he must go alone to speak to Kotori. While Shido is talking with her, Kotori grabs her hand and begins to groan. Reine interrupts them, asking Shido to leave them alone for a while. When Reine comes out of the room, she tells Shido that Kotori's condition is stable for now. She then asks Shido to invite his sister to a date in two days, as they need him to seal her powers. Upon Shido inquiring more about this, she informs him that Kotori won't be able to hold on for much longer, as she needs sedatives and stabilizers to maintain her current condition. She then asks Shido to go to the hospital to check up on Mana, while she takes care of Kotori. Shido notices an oddity in Reine's voice as she says this.

When Shido is leaving the hospital, Reine calls him to ask him if he is done visiting Mana. After Shido states that he wasn't allowed to see her, she responds back in a low and painful voice. As Shido asks if something is wrong, she tells him it is nothing and asks him if he can return to <Fraxinus> as soon as possible, since they are about to have a strategy meeting. She also tells him that, compared to Tohka and Yoshino, Shido has the advantage this time, since he knows a lot of things about Kotori.

When Shido gets to the Fraxinus, Reine waits for him to speak with Tohka, and then takes him to the meeting room. When Kannazuki starts the meeting, Reine suggests Shido to cover his ears, and then all the crew members start shouting their love for Kotori, as Reine explains it. During the meeting, Kagawoe is rewarded a Saint Kotori (Sacred Kotori Medal). As Shido asks Reine what it is, she says that those are badges made by Kannazuki with Kotori's photos. Reine also reminds the crew that their Hot Spring plans would fail, since Kotori doesn't have a lot of time. She then asks Shido if Kotori ever mentioned going to a certain place, to which Shido comes up with the idea of going to Ocean Park. Although she was in Imouto Mode when she said that, Reine says that it doesn't matter, since that mode is a way for her to tell him how she really feels.

The next day, Reine informs Shido that he'll be training for Kotori's date by helping Tohka and Yoshino pick swimsuits since he needs to get used to female swimsuits. When Origami appears, Reine says that this was not part of her plan. When Tohka starts arguing with Origami, Reine simply tells Shido to make something up. When Origami asks about the spirit of fire, Reine asks Shido to calm down. Once that is over, she suggests Shido invite Origami to come pick swimsuits as well; adding that having more girls as specimens isn't a bad thing. Once they are picking the swimsuits, Reine asks Shido not to panic over the girls' "charming figures". When Tohka mentions that whoever makes Shido's heartbeat the fastest will obtain a date with him, Reine says that she has slightly increased the difficulty. Every time one of the girls made his heart beat, Reine dictated a punishment for Shido, such as taking Kotori to her bed.

On the day of the date, Reine quickly informs Shido that Kotori is on her way to the station. When Kotori finally appears, Shido stays silent and is scolded by Reine for this. Once Shido sees Tohka and Yoshino, she tells him that they'll be tagging along. When Shido asks Reine about Kotori's mood, she simply wishes him good luck. Later, when Shido sees Tohka and Yoshino in their swimsuits, Reine says that it's good that they have practiced. When Kotori appears with her swimsuit on, however, Reine reminds him that he should compliment her. When Shido says that Kotori's budding breasts are irresistible, the commander gets angry, and Reine informs Shido that there's an emergency. Not with Kotori, but with Yoshino. Later, when Kotori asks him if he is telling the truth about her breasts, Reine tells Shido that lies and feelings cannot coexist, so Shido must tell her that this is how he really feels.

Afterwards, Reine says that Shido could play the hero by saving Kotori from three Fraxinus crew members who were disguised as criminals, but Kotori ends up recognizing them. Reine then mumbles to herself about it, saying that she underestimated Kotori. When the choices come up again, Reine instructs Shido to ask Kotori to go to the water slide. When Tohka says she wants to go too, Reine suggests he lets her. She later reveals that it was for the best to let Tohka go because that would make Kotori jealous, and she'd agree to go down the water slide together. After an incident involving Tohka's bikini loosening up, Reine tells Shido that Kotori's mood has remained the same for the entirety of the date. When he contacts Reine again, he is told that she has temporarily left. When Shido goes to the bathroom, he sees two people talking behind the vending machines. The two people were Reine and Kotori, and Reine was giving Kotori drugs in order to calm her. As Reine tells Kotori to not push herself too hard, Kotori responds that it should be fine since she is a Spirit right now.

Once they are done, Shido confronts Reine about it, and she tells him that Kotori wished to go on a date with Shido without him feeling compassion or pity for her. As a result, she begs him to pretend that he hadn't seen anything for Kotori's sake. Later on, when Shido decides to take the lead for the date, Reine says that he is doing well and that maybe they were worrying for nothing. After Origami and Kotori's fight, Shido is on the Fraxinus Bridge talking to Reine. She informs him that Origami could get suspended and apologizes for worrying Shido so much since the date wasn't necessary to seal Kotori's powers. After all, Kotori loves her brother the most. After Reine informs him of this, Kotori suddenly kicks Shido, who ends up burying his face on Reine's chest. The commander says that there's an error with the numbers, but Reine interrupts her, saying that such a thing is impossible. Kotori then bribes Reine with Ten "La Pucelle" limited edition cream puffs. Reine accepts the offer and tells Shido that the numbers must have been wrong.

A while later, <Phantom> appears before Kurumi as she is struggling to regain the time she had lost during her fight with Kotori. Here, it is revealed that a month ago, she was the one who told Kurumi about Shido’s existence and his power to seal Spirits. She then asks Kurumi how it went with Shido, to which Kurumi replies that she cannot give up on Shido, as he is a large reservoir of Reiryoku for her to consume, which would allow her to use Yud Bet, the <The Twelfth Bullet>. <Phantom> questions her on why she would want to travel back in time, surprising Kurumi on how the mysterious person covered in noise already knew about her Angel’s powers. When Kurumi states that her motives are to travel back in time to 30 years ago to kill the First Spirit, she mocks Kurumi for being surprisingly gentle. As Kurumi prepares to retaliate for the insult, <Phantom> disappears into the darkness.

Yamai Tempest

Reine Murasame is first seen talking with Kotori on the Fraxinus Bridge. She explains to the commander that the school trip’s destination has changed to Arubi Island, with the offer coming from Cross Travel, a company affiliated with DEM industries. Kotori insists that Reine should go on this trip to relax, as Kotori must attend a Ratatoskr meeting. In response, Reine says that it should be fine if Kannazuki takes care of <Fraxinus>. While on the island, Shido witnesses a duel between the Spirits Yamai Kaguya and Yamai Yuzuru. When he asks them to stop, Reine contacts him and requests him to explain the situation, but Kaguya interrupts them.

When Shido takes Kaguya and Yuzuru to his school group, Reine explains that they are transfer students. She then asks Shido and the Yamai twins to come with her to explain some things (and to let Tohka rest from getting hit in the head by a flying garbage bin). Reine and Shido hear the story of the original Yamai, and Reine says that communication with <Fraxinus> has been lost. She then asks Kaguya and Yuzuru to go with her, to which they reluctantly agree after hearing that she can help them win over Shido. Afterward, Shido is tricked by Kaguya and Yuzuru into entering the female hot spring, and he ends up coming to Reine's room, dripping wet. Then, Reine tells him that she can't communicate with <Fraxinus> yet. She explains that Kaguya and Yuzuru are the Spirits <Berserk>, who are quite famous due to the weather disasters they cause when appearing in this world. The Spacequake this time happened far above in the skies of the Pacific Ocean. Kaguya and Yuzuru likely created a cyclone that blew them to Arubi Island. She comments that this is a lucky opportunity for Shido, since it was rare to see <Berserk>. However, they still need to be cautious, since if Shido kisses one of the twins, the one with the powers left would get angry and the inhabitants of Arubi Island might get caught in the crossfire.

They then come up with a plan to seal the twins' powers. Reine hands intercoms to Kaguya, Yuzuru, and Shido so that she can give advice to the three of them, hoping that her commentary will allow them to control Kaguya and Yuzuru's actions to a certain extent. When she notices that Shido caught a cold, Reine asks him to sleep in her room. 20 minutes later, Kaguya and Yuzuru come to "nurse" Shido. Reine's plan was to study their movement patterns and increase their intimacy points. On the next day, Reine tells Shido that Kaguya and Yuzuru have finished changing their clothes. She reminds him that the girls also have intercoms, so she will be providing advice for them as well. She also reminds him to compliment the girls’ swimsuits.

Reine ends up giving them funny advice for the date. Later on, Reine appears alongside Tohka and Origami and suggests that they should play beach volleyball. In order to improve the relationship between Shido and the twins, Reine separates them into two groups: Tohka, Origami, and herself against Shido, Kaguya, and Yuzuru. After the match, Reine tries to talk to Shido through the intercom, but she is interrupted again by Kaguya. However, she manages to hear what the twins want for each other, complicating the situation.

Later that night, Reine interrupts them Origami faces a Bandersnatch, asking Origami to come inside. When the robot charges at Reine, Origami pushes her away after receiving a blow to her stomach. Afterwards, Origami wakes up in Reine's room. She had been taking care of her and tells Origami that the doll stopped moving after she fell unconscious. She then listens to Origami as the AST member voices her desire to get stronger. When they are leaving the island, Reine explains to Shido that Kaguya and Yuzuru have been granted permission to ride the plane, since they also want to be with Shido.

Miku Lily

Reine is onboard <Fraxinus> when Shido first meets Miku. Reviewing the choices, she says that the second choice (praise her singing voice) is the appropriate one, since they know very little about the Spirit <Diva>. Later, she shows Shido a diagram of Miku's mental state from yesterday. Based on comments from the crew members, they determined that Miku might be into girls. When Shido (dressed as Shiori) is working at the maid cafe, Reine and Yoshino show up. She explains to Yoshino that Shido is not doing this because he wants to. The two girls then enter the maid cafe.

After Miku uses her Angel, <Gabriel>, on the audience, Reine finds that the <Fraxinus> crew, except for Shiizaki and maybe Kannazuki, have been brainwashed. Luckily, Mana appears and knocks out all of the brainwashed crew members. Then, Reine explains to her that this was caused by a Spirit, and that she has to save Shido and Tohka.

Miku Truth

When Shido infiltrates the DEM building, Mana gives him an intercom which allows him to communicate with Fraxinus. There, Reine explains that they used Mana's Territory to purify the area, and it took them some time to recover. Later, Reine recommends that he should look for Tohka in a place similar to the containment area on board <Fraxinus>.

Natsumi Search

Reine helps Shido with his dates after Natsumi has sent him the twelve photos. The day before, they talk about Natsumi's strategy, and Reine says that <Ratatoskr> will place mana observations on everyone in the pictures. But since Natsumi's reading could be low, she asks Shido to date all the 12 suspects to find out if something is amiss. She also says that Kotori won't be able to enter <Fraxinus>, as she is one of the suspects.

During the date with Tohka, Reine tells Shido to "stir her up a bit". However, when Tohka begins to act strangely (she doesn't want to eat a lot), Reine tells him to calm down and see what happens. The second date is with Yoshino, and Reine tells Shido that she should be on her way. However, there seems to be nothing strange with her. However, when Yoshino licks Shido's face, they begin to have doubts. The third date is with Tonomachi. Reine had arranged it to be in a sauna, since Natsumi would hesitate being naked in front of a male. Since Tonomachi shows no reaction, Reine asks Shido to touch him several times, which freaks both of them out.

The next date is with Yuzuru. Reine asks Shido to hurry since he's a little late. That night, Reine is with Shido and Kotori in their house. Reine says that, despite letting Yuzuru walk alone at night, he did a good job. She also tells him that the next date will be with Kotori. However, during the night, Yuzuru disappears, and Reine shows Shido a recording of her being sucked into <Haniel>. After seeing this, Reine tells Shido to find Natsumi as soon as possible. During the date with Kaguya, Reine says that it is nice for her to be lively. When Kaguya makes a bet with Shido, Reine tells him that they'll stop her if her request is too aberrant.

Afterwards, Reine reveals that the next date will be with Ai, and tells Shido that she placed a letter on her shoe rack asking her to go to the coffee shop in front of the station. During the next day, Shido and Reine discuss Yoshino and Ai's disappearances, and she insists that it was not his fault. During the next date, Reine tells Shido that Origami has been waiting for him for an hour. When Origami pays for the movie tickets and asks Shido to leave his money for later, Reine concludes that Origami won't let him leave immediately after the movie ends. Later that day, Reine informs Shido that Tohka has now disappeared. When only Kotori, Origami, Miku, and Kaguya are left, Kotori deliberately says bad things about Natsumi's body to lure her out, but Reine replies that nobody has reacted to her taunt.

Natsumi Change

When Shido is taking care of the girls (who had been turned into children by Natsumi) Reine comes over to help him. First, she has Kaguya and Yuzuru apologize to Kotori for stealing her candy. Then, she asks Tohka to wait for the meal and gives her a cookie. She also tells Origami that Shido prefers girls who can go to the toilet alone. After that, she calms down Yoshino and tells Miku that Shido is not ignoring him. When Shido thanks her and says that she looks like a mother, Reine reacts strangely, but she claims not to be bothered by it.

Afterward, when Natsumi turns Shido's house into a human zoo, Reine informs him that they've found Natsumi, who's hiding in a building under construction. On the Ratatoskr building, Reine explains Natsumi's mental state to Shido, saying that she is not used to being praised while in her real form, and that she doesn't seem to believe that anyone could accept her.

When they find out about DEM's artificial satellite, Reine explains that due to the explosives and the <Bandersnatch>'s Territory, the explosion would be similar to a tactical nuke. When Kotori decides to use her Spirit powers, Reine asks her if she really is okay with that. After blowing up the first artificial satellite, Kotori wants to use her powers one more time, but Reine stops her by saying that it would be too much of a burden for both her and <Fraxinus>.

Tobiichi Angel

When Shido goes missing, the Spacequake alarm sounds, but since there are no mana readings, Reine claims that it could be a false alarm set up by DEM or the JGSDF. However, she states that it is still dangerous to think it's only a false alarm.

In the present time, <Phantom> approaches Origami after she had been defeated by a full-powered Tohka. She offers Origami an absolute power if she reaches her hand out. Despite thinking it was a hallucination, Origami accepted the offer and absorbed the white gem that <Phantom> gave to her, turning into a Spirit.[1]

Having traveled back 5 years in the past thanks to Kurumi’s <Yud Bet>, Origami relentlessly attacks <Phantom>, startling her with the sudden ambush. Taking a good look at her, <Phantom> realizes that she possesses the Angel <Metatron>, which should be impossible since the Sephira Crystal that holds that Angel is still in her ownership. Remaining calm while Origami desperately tries to kill her, <Phantom> deducts that Origami must have used Kurumi's Angel <Zafkiel>'s Twelfth Bullet to travel back in time, which causes <Phantom> to voice her surprise, since she didn't expect Kurumi to lend her powers to someone else.

During their short fight, <Phantom> notes that Origami must have a large grudge against her future self, but she couldn’t let her kill her because she has a wish that she wants to fulfill. <Phantom> asks Origami why she is trying to kill her, and Origami tells her that it's because <Phantom> is planning to kill Origami's parents. <Phantom>, however, has no such intention and tells her so, but her reply only enrages Origami more.

Origami manages to remove <Phantom>'s noise with an attack from <Metatron>, but she is temporary blinded by the attack and is unable to clearly see <Phantom>'s true appearance. However, she did note that <Phantom> is a young girl with long hair and that her true voice sounded familiar to her. <Phantom> noted to herself, that with such talent, it would be unthinkable to not make Origami a Spirit, even if she would one day turn against her. <Phantom> then, despite Origami's attempt to stop her, disappeared into the void.[2]

Tobiichi Devil

<Phantom> is later approached by Shido, who had traveled back to 5 years in the past twice in order to change the future. Shocked by Shido’s appearance, she quickly tries to flee from the scene. However, <Phantom> eventually stops and waits for Shido, stating that she left because she didn’t want to cause a scene in front of Kotori. She also voices her disappointment that Shido gave the name <Phantom> to her. However, in order to communicate with him, she decided to use Rinne Sonogami’s appearance, as she couldn’t let Shido see her true form yet.

DAL v11 03

Phantom disguised as Rinne

Using Shido’s appearance as her basis, she correctly deduced that Shido came from 5 years in the future and had Kurumi’s help to travel back in time. <Phantom> is then inquired by Shido, who wants know who he is and why he has the power to seal Spirits. However, she couldn’t give him an answer, as she knows nothing about his prior circumstances and Kurumi is currently eavesdropping on their conversation.

Instead, she asks why Shido went through all the trouble of traveling back in time. Shido replies that she wants <Phantom> to disappear, which she interpreters as him wanting her dead. She bemuses that she had thoughts about this happening, since she had an idea that he will be at his wits end dealing with moody Spirits in the future. However, she quickly retorts that she didn’t want to think like that.

In response, Shido clarifies that he just wants <Phantom> to return back to the other dimension. When she asks for the reason, Shido hesitates on his answer, as he didn’t know if <Phantom>’s goal is to invert the Spirits like Westcott. Nevertheless, <Phantom> refuses on the basis that she still had some jobs left to do. Before Shido can respond, he finds his body frozen. <Phantom> touches his cheek and repeats the words that he heard when he woke up on Ratatoskr after his first time meeting Tohka: “…Because I definitely won’t let you go again. I definitely won’t make a mistake again.” <Phantom> then kicks the ground and disappears into the sky just as Origami arrives back in the past.[3]

In the new timeline, Reine is at Shido's home with him and Kotori. There, Shido explains how he knew Origami and that he changed the history with Kurumi's help. During a discussion with Shido and Kotori, Reine states that Shido is able to remember the past due to either being the one who changed history, or as a result of being affected by <Zafkiel>'s powers. Then, Reine theorizes that maybe the Origami from the new timeline and the Origami from the old timeline are not the same person, and that <Devil> appears once she detects Spirit mana. They decide to do what they always do and have a date with Origami. [4]

During their date, Shido loses track of Origami, and Reine confirms that she in 20 meters behind him, in a dressing room. When Shido and Origami are in the park, Reine says that Origami is anxious and that Shido needs to reassure her in order to perform the sealing. However, when Shido starts using Kotori's power to heal from his injury, Reine's speculation is proven correct as Origami inverses.

Itsuka Disaster

When Kotori is wondering about <Phantom>'s identity, Reine comes in to tell her that there is a problem with someone’s Reiha readings. However, the Spirits' mental state is good. When Shido is taken to the underground <Ratatoskr> building, the Spirits are there waiting for news, and Reine says that Miku is in Kansai due to her job. Once Miku arrives there, Reine explains Shido's condition to the girls and explains that they need to kiss him in order to return him back to normal. However, when they go to the medical room where Shido is staying, they find that he is no longer there. When the girls are looking for him, Reine calls them, saying that she's found him, and that they should see it themselves.

Afterward, Reine decides to help the Spirits with intercoms in order to make Shido fall for them. She warns the girls not to use their powers, since she doesn't know what effect it could have with the Path blocked. Before the date begins, Origami explains to the Fraxinus crew that her idea was a nudist beach, to which Reine says that it could shock Shido. Origami suggests stripping gradually, but her request is denied again.

Once the date begins, Reine gives advice to both Kaguya and Yuzuru, asking them to pinch Shido from the left and the right, and attack him by pushing their breasts on him. Since that doesn't work, she asks them to perform a vanilla flavor kiss through an ice cream. Once the twins succeed, Reine congratulates them. When it's Natsumi's turn to make Shido's heart race, Reine suggests Natsumi go with Option 2: Have a gap contest by handling him with the composure of an adult "Onee-san". However, when she transforms, Reine says that it's too dangerous and that she should go back to her original form. But once she runs out of power, Reine congratulates her for moving Shido's heart. Later, Reine encourages Yoshino to go with Shido. Reine confirms that Yoshino is doing good work when she starts applying sunscreen over Shido.

However, they are interrupted by DEM, and Reine says that one of the readings belongs to Ellen Mathers. Seeing that their objective is Shido, she asks the girls to keep conquering Shido, since she has a countermeasure planned, though she doesn't want to resort to it if necessary.

Later, just as Shido is about to be hit by the blast shot from <Dainslaif>, <Phantom> arrives and creates a barrier to save Shido’s life. She then weakens some of the Reiryoku surrounding Shido in order to give the sealed Spirits a chance at saving him. Before leaving, she calls all of the sealed Spirits her “children”, and wishes them good luck.[5]

Nia Creation

Reine is first seen in the Ratatoskr building analyzing Shido's condition. She says that Shido's Reiryoku levels are going back to normal and that he can go back to his usual medical checkups. Then, she remarks that it will be necessary to clear up the misunderstandings with Shido's physical measurements, and with Ai, Mai, Mii, and Tamae. Later, Shido finds Kotori and Reine trying to restrict Mana, who was trying to avoid her checkup appointment. Kotori and Reine are trying to analyze Mana's condition, but the girl is stubbornly refusing.

After Shido's date with Nia, Reine says that her love values increased when he cosplayed as Tokiya, and that he needs to act as a 2D character in order to win Nia over. While this seems impossible, Reine says that she has some ideas. Once they watch Nia play Ratatoskr's game, Kotori asks Reine why she had such a game, to which she replies that it's better to be prepared. Reine is later seen at a café talking with Takajo-sensei, an acquaintance of Nia's. She then sets up the conversation for Shido and Kotori to talk to Takajo-sensei

Later on, after Westcott takes Nia's Qlipha crystal, Reine takes care of her after her treatment with the medical Realizer is completed. After telling Shido and the others that Nia’s condition has stabilized, she gives Shido permission to take Nia outside for a while to see the first fireworks of the New Year.

Mukuro Planet

After the meteor incident at school, Reine helps transport Shido, Tohka, Origami, and the Yamai Sisters to the new underground Ratatoskr base. Reine is among the Fraxinus crew present when they show Shido the footage containing the new Spirit, <Zodiac>. The new Spirit was likely found by DEM through Westcott's <Beelzebub>. They send an armada of ships to capture her, but <Zodiac> easily repels them by using her Angel, <Michael>. From the analysis of the video, Reine concludes that <Michael> has the power to seal the target’s function by impaling it with the key and alter the very fabric of space-time to create wormholes where she can also set its destination. The meteors dropped today were likely sent by <Zodiac> in retaliation for disturbing her rest. 

Using a Realizer they project a 3D image of Shido in order to be able to converse with <Zodiac>. As Shido approaches the new Spirit, he finds himself being attacked unconditionally. While lost in thought, Reine touches her chin and states that she didn't expect her to be so violent, but it seems like using the hologram was the right choice. As Shido tries to communicate with the new Spirit, Mukuro, Reine emits a dejected voice that his determination may not last long. When asked what is the matter, Reine motions towards a statistical table on the monitor. It appeared to display Mukuro’s happiness levels and mental state and showed in the chart indicates absolutely zero deviation.

After Shido receives a scathing rebuttal from Mukuro, the other Spirits suddenly crash out of their hiding spot, revealing that they were eavesdropping on the conversation. As Kotori turns to Reine for advice, Reine gives a go with the expression that makes Kotori yield and let the other Spirits stay and help. As they are discussing how to win over Mukuro, Reine remarks that the primary problem lies in how Mukuro sealed away her own emotions using her Angel. Therefore, she could likely use her Angel again to reverse the process. However, Shido still notes the extreme difficulty in achieving that, comparing it to trying to unlock a chest with the key inside. Much later, Reine accompanies everyone else to the secret Ratatoskr base where the new Fraxinus is being built. As DEM launches their attack, Reine and the other crew members help defend the ship from the invading Wizards. After securing their position, Reine begins to provide first aid to Nakatsugawa, who had injured himself in the process. After Kotori and her group arrive, the new Fraxinus EX begins its maiden voyage into outer space in order to start the mission in saving Mukuro.

Mukuro Family

As Shido is preparing for his date with Mukuro, he starts to panic after realizing that he has no way of contacting her. However, Reine tells him not to worry, being the only one to see the spatial gate opened behind Shido as Mukuro arrives to sweep him away.

Kurumi Refrain

Reine is present onboard Fraxinus as Kurumi presents her challenge to Shido. However, due to DEM jamming communications, the Fraxinus crew are unable to provide feedback or support as DEM attacks. The following morning, Kurumi meets with Shido at the door of his house to walk to school with him. On the way, Shido puts on his earpiece and whispers to let Reine know of the situation.

The day after, as Shido is escaping from the Spirits trying to train him against Kurumi's seductive wiles, he runs for the door only to run into Reine. Reine calms him down by stroking his head and hugging him, accidentally triggering the buzzer measuring Shido's heart rate in the process. Reine later reveals that she came to deliver the ingredients the Spirits need to make homemade chocolate for Shido.

Reine helps Kotori oversee the chocolate-making process at the Spirit Mansion's kitchen. She hears of the outlandish ideas from Miku and Nia for their chocolate, and Kotori's reaction to them. Reine also informs Origami of a problem with her idea of giving a life-sized sculpture of chocolate to Shido. When asked if she's making chocolate, Reine clarifies that she'd be giving to her Fraxinus and school colleagues, because "Shin" is already receiving chocolate from the other Spirits. Also, when asked, Reine eventually admits to loving someone, but clarifies that her lover was her first and will be her last. This admission deeply moves the other Spirits, including Kurumi who had emerged from the shadows in an apron over casual wear, having eavesdropped on the conversation. Reine quickly excuses herself to return to Fraxinus.

On Valentine's Day, Reine is onboard Fraxinus with Kotori as they monitor Shido and Kurumi's date. Night falls, and Shido and Kurumi go to a park. Reine tells Shido that Kurumi hasn't yet opened her heart because of a self-imposed barrier. While this does prompt Shido's next move, it also results in Kurumi shooting down Ratatoskr's cameras and crushing Shido's earpiece.

Later on, <Phantom> snoops in on a conversation that the real Kurumi has with her clones, and catches their attention with a remark. All the clones start firing bullets at <Phantom>, the real Kurumi additionally shooting a <Zayin> to freeze <Phantom>, whose mosaic-like disguise is shattered by the subsequent round of shots. A figure of Reine lands on the ground, and Kurumi orders her clones to seize "Reine" and drag her into the shadows.

Kurumi Ragnarok

Reine, still onboard Fraxinus, is commanded to contact Mana. Reine then tends to Shido after he collapsed attempting to unlock an old memory, in the presence of the other Spirits.

A while later, Reine is informed by Shiizaki of DEM's plans to attack, so she quickly goes to attend an emergency conference elsewhere onboard Fraxinus, only for that meeting to almost immediately disband due to concerns over the enemy eavesdropping their plans through <Beelzebub>. Shido and Kotori later discuss between themselves, as the latter is clearly worried for her older brother's life. Reine hears this and elaborates to Shido that they'll help Kurumi as well. But when Kotori wonders what <Phantom> is trying to achieve, Reine makes a cryptic comment that Phantom's goals may turn out to be surprisingly childish.

Mio Game Over

Kurumi's death is witnessed by everyone on board Fraxinus watching the live feed and Kurumi's monitored Spirit levels. Their suspicions grow towards Reine, who bears a likeness to the girl who emerged out of Kurumi's chest. Reine, appearing to taunt Kotori, then keeps calm through an attempt to electrocute her. She confirms that she and the girl outside are one and the same, and announces her departure. Reine materializes outside next to Shido, and merges with her other self into a single entity, Mio Takamiya.

After Shido uses <Vav> to rewind time back to the day before DEM mobilized, he decides to see Reine and ask her out on a date.

Mio True End

Reine accepts Shido's request to go on a date, but she asks to finish her work before meeting at the scheduled time and place. Reine completes her duties just after midnight and is on her way to take a bath when Tohka bumps into her, asking Reine if she likes Shido. When Reine gives an honest response, Tohka leaves for the corridor allowing Reine to continue at her own pace.

Reine arrives at the scheduled place at the scheduled time for her date with Shido. Upon Kotori's instruction, Shido compliments Reine's appearance and clothes, and Reine thanks him. Reine sees that Shido is pulling a piece of luggage behind him, and asks for the destination while also offering to elope with him to wherever he goes. Shido responds by saying he intends to surprise Reine, and Reine offers her hand to hold. The two of them ride a taxi to their destination, a ryokan far from Tengu City, and Shido pays the taxi driver. At this point, Reine asks if the other Spirits know about their date, and Shido says that he told nobody else. Upon Kotori's instruction, Shido invites Reine to the private outdoor bath of the ryokan before they have lunch. He gives Reine a change of clothes from inside his luggage, though stops himself from boasting by saying that MARIA helped him pack.

Reine suddenly begins to undress, forcing Shido to hide in the corridor and get changed into his own swim shorts. When he returns, Reine merely holds a towel over her body. Eventually, both of them rinse their bodies before entering the hot springs naked. There, Shido finds out from Reine that she began working for Ratatoskr ever since Kotori became their commander nearly six years prior. Shido also asks to know more about Reine from before then. Initially reluctant, Reine duly answers that she was a student studying Spacequakes at the time Ratatoskr scouted her. Reine also appears to be offended by Shido's query regarding when it happened during her life. Nevertheless, she claims that her parents died young, she had close friends during school and she used to be nicknamed "Vampire" for never being able to sleep. Finally, Shido asks who Reine likes. Reine claims to have only ever loved one person, but asks to know more about Shido himself before telling him. Specifically, she asks if Shido remembers anything from before being adopted into the Itsuka household. Shido remembers being born and feeling the touch of his mother, but doesn't hold a grudge against her, and even wishes to be hugged by her again.

To Shido's surprise, Reine hugs him and recreates that same embracing feeling that he remembers. This gives Shido an idea of where to take Reine after the baths. Keeping her eyes closed, Reine offers to be led by the hand towards that destination. When she is instructed to open her eyes, she sees the beach not far from the ryokan that Shinji brought Mio to, thirty years prior. Reine pretends to not have known this location before, and decides to accompany Shido for a walk and some chatter. By the time the sun sets, Reine finally feels the urge to doze off. She wakes up not long afterwards, and makes a sheepish laugh. After being urged by Kotori, Shido reveals what he knows about the person Reine likes, and goes ahead to kiss Reine. However, nothing happens. Reine backs away slightly, but places a hand on Shido's head. This suddenly makes Shido realize and back off from Reine, who interprets this as a rejection.

Just then, Reine sees DEM airships in the sky, followed by a shadow in front of her, which Kurumi emerges from. Kurumi calls out her clone army to shoot at Reine from all directions. Reine avoids all the bullets while manifesting her Astral Dress. When Kurumi once again refuses to surrender her Sephira Crystal, Reine calls Mio out to join her.

After Shido kisses Mio having sealed all ten Spirits, he is pulled into <Ain Soph>. There, Reine is re-established with a body separate from Mio and meets Shido at the beach from earlier but in much warmer weather. They are called over by Mio and Shinji, the latter also having been recreated by <Ain Soph>. Shido and Reine resume their date while accompanied by Mio and Shinji doing the same. They engage in various activities under <Ain Soph>, owing to Mio and Reine being able to realize material objects under <Ain Soph>. Mio and Reine then oversee a cooking contest between Shido and Shinji, and both choose Shido's dish over Shinji's. They then treat their partners to different flavors of shaved ice. While seeing Mio and Shinji chat away happily, Reine starts to admit that her feelings as Mio had gone over to the Mio opposite her, and that she has become Reine Murasame. Afterward, the four of them walk along the beach, and Reine listens to the words Shido has to say to Mio.

A few moments later, <Ain Soph> suddenly shakes. Mio and Reine identify the disturbance from outside as the Spirit Formula being recreated by Westcott. Knowing that he has to be stopped, Mio requests for Shido to lend his powers. Reine, who would thus remain inside <Ain Soph>, gives Shido one final embrace before he leaves.
