Asta is officially a member of the Black Bull and apparently he is not the only freshman. Noelle is a freshman inducted a bit earlier than him and is of royal bloodline. Will she ever open up to Asta and accept him as a squadmate? And what is a member of royalty doing in the worst squad of the Magic Knights?
After the initiation ceremony, Magna Swing decides to take Asta on a tour of the headquarters. They accidentally meet with Noelle Silva whom Magna reveals to be a fellow new member. As Asta tries to introduce himself, Noelle quickly rejects him by reasoning that a commoner should not talk to a royal so casualy. Asta then argues by stating that they are an equal member of the squad in which leads Noelle to attack him. Unfortunately, her attack missed and hits Magna instead. Noelle tries to defend her act by stating her royal status in which means nothing to Magna. Noelle storms out while discarding her squad robe.
At dawn, when Asta wakes up to go to the toilet, he sees Noelle rigorously training to fix her lack of control over her magic's accuracy. As she fails to progress, Noelle starts to reminisce the reasons she got inducted to the squad. She then accidentally lose control over her power and created a huge sphere of water with her trapped inside it. Fortunately, Asta manages to save her by cutting it in half after being thrown towards the sphere by Yami Sukehiro, causing the spell to dissipate. After Noelle regains her consciousness, she prepares herself to be rejected again for her lack of talent but receives encouragement from the other members instead.
