Everyone is cheering as Asta and Gauche Adlai have defeated Sally and Baro. Theresa Rapual thinks about how the next generation is growing beautifully but notices that Baro is not completely defeated. Theresa warns Asta at the last second, but Neige freezes Baro and rescues Asta. He says that he will avenge his brother and remembers when his brother used to be nice to him. Neige then tells Asta that he is going to turn himself into the Magic Knights, and asks if Asta would be his friend once he gets out which Asta agrees too.
As Neige thanks Asta, he is struck down. Asta notices two figures cloaked in light. Gauche notices their strong mana and is then struck down as well. Theresa quickly creates a shield to protect everyone but is struck several times. As she falls, she asks Asta to protect the children and complains that it is innocent, powerless children who are too often the victims. The enemy disagrees and introduces himself as the leader of the Eye of the Midnight Sun, Licht. Asta notices that Licht has not only his ally Sally but also a grimoire with a four-leaf clover just like Yuno. Licht then apologizes to Sally for the injures that she has, and Valtos tries to apologize for letting her into harm's way. Licht instead blames the others and explains why the are planning to destroy the Clover Kingdom.
Asta yells at Licht for attacking them, and Licht attacks Asta and asks why Asta has that grimoire. Asta tries to block Licht's attacks but Licht appears behinds Asta saying that he is going to take that grimoire back. Licht then attacks Asta, but Yami Sukehiro appears and blocks the attack. Asta asks why he is there, and Yami says that he is lost and wants directions on how to get back.
