Marx tells Julius Novachrono that the Eye of the Midnight Sun probably already killed the barrier mages. Julius then tells the captains that they are not going to release this information to the public and that he wants them all to check their squads for anyone who might have ties to the enemy.

In a room within the Magic Knights' headquarters, Julius apologizes to Yami and Asta for having them stay. Julius comments about how it is sad to be betrayed by a comrade and that he has probably made a lot of mistakes because he has become the Magic Emperor so fast. Yami tells Julius that he picked the wrong guys if he just wanted to talk. Julius reveals to them that the Eye of the Midnight Sun are after jewels called magic stones and that was the reason Fuegoleon Vermillion was targeted. Julius also says that they are not going to let them get the last three stones and that they know the location of one of them. Julius reveals that one magic stone is located in a Grand Magic Zone, the Seabed Temple. Asta asks what a Grand Magic Zone is, which makes Yami angry and threaten to crush Asta's head. Julius tells Asta that a Grand Magic Zone is an area that has strong fields of mana that cause magical phenomena. Julius also says that the Seabed Temple is especially dangerous and that the dungeon that Asta conquered was just the tip of the iceberg. Yami says that their mission is just to get there and get the magic stone before the Eye of the Midnight Sun. Julius responds that it is only a job that the Black Bulls can do. Julius thinks about how there has to be a traitor in the Magic Knights and if Yami will do the mission, which Yami says that if it is an order. Yami then remembers when he had gotten his grimoire and how he met Julius and asked to join the Magic Knights. Yami then salutes to Julius and says that he is going to prove that Julius has not made any mistakes.

Yami and Asta then leave and while leaving Asta comments about how someone amazing has excepted something about him. Yami slaps Asta's back and says that he let Asta into the Black Bulls squad and to do his best.
