Spirits are otherworldly entities with immense power, capable of creating Spacequakes whenever they appear. One way of dealing with them is through brute force and killing them... or making them fall in love and sealing their powers.

Having sealed three Spirits, Shido Itsuka continues his mission with Ratatoskr in locating more Spirits and dating them, to ensure the world's safety from further destruction. However, this time around, their problems will not be limited to Spirits as a more imposing threat seems to have noticed their activities.
