Haruka returns to her present time-space and invites Karasu to live with her after he unplugged his pipeline. Though little did she expect she would get involved with Yuu's relationship problems with his mother.
Karasu has been severely injured as a result of the previous battle. Haruka and Tobi see to it that he gets the proper amount of Layze to heal himself, but Kosagi does her best to prevent it from happening.
Haruka found an old video when she was younger. She looks around the town to find a tape that could hopefully play it, but in the process of it all, raiding units from Shangri-la have appeared, and Kuina has exploited his allegiance to Shangri-la.
Yuu and Haruka were transported to La'cryma, and were quickly met by the heads of the Dragon Knights. Thanks to Haruka, the two were able to escape. However, Yuu mysteriously disappears off into Shangri-la.
