A fight between Asta and "Jimmy" begins but the former is forced on the defensive as the latter is trying to eliminate the little girl that he is protecting. Meanwhile, Noelle is also struggling with her own insecurities after an encounter with her older siblings. Can these Black Bull members move past through their struggles and emerge victorious?
Asta begins to bleed after he received a scratch from No.4 - Jimmy's attack. Rades Spirito reveals that his corpse's attack was a bullet composed of curse power before ordering the corpse to launch a barrage of attacks at Asta. The boy manages to defend himself against the attack, but Rades decides to shift the attack towards the little girl that is standing behind him. Asta refuses to give up as he is forced into the defensive as he tries to protect the little girl from the incoming attacks.
From afar, Noelle Silva notices her squadmate's struggle but she hesitates to help him when she remembers her brother's comments about her abilities. Unbeknownst to her, several corpses suddenly charge at her as she fails to react in time. Fortunately, Fuegoleon Vermillion manages to save Noelle as he walks towards her. The Crimson Lion captain then scolds Noelle for her lack of focus before giving her a few words of encouragement.
On the other end, Asta is still struggling to protect the little girl as he receives another wound from a cursed bullet. Due to this, several of the corpse's attacks manage to go unnoticed by Asta. As they are about to hit the little girl, she is protected by Noelle's Sea Dragon's Nest. Asta immediately charges forwards towards "Jimmy" while Noelle takes over the protecting duty. Rades summons several corpses in order to prevent Asta from advancing any further but Leopold Vermillion assists Asta by burning all of them with Spiral Flames. At that moment, Asta charges towards "Jimmy" with both swords in his hands and takes it down before challenging Rades to a fight.
