Is it reasonable to judge people just from their birthplace? Asta finally discovers what he wants to do as a Magic Knight while Noelle grows a bit closer on gaining control over her magical power.
Heath Grice and his group of mages are confronted by Asta, Magna Swing, and Noelle Silva. Recognizing their affiliation with the Magic Knights, Heath decides that the Black Bull members and the rest of the villagers need to be eliminated before they can continue their main objective. Asta begins his assault while trying to find out the reason behind Heath's actions. The man simply says that all people that belong in the Forsaken region of the Kingdom are just brutes and a waste of his time, which triggers a memory from Asta's past. Remembering the past, Asta puts out his resolve on protecting the villagers.
Heath and his group manage to keep Asta and Magna occupied with their combined magic. Noelle tries to take a chance by attacking Heath, but the noblewoman misses due to her lack of accuracy. A thought of escaping crosses Noelle's mind after her failure but she manages to regain her spirit after a young girl pleads for her protection. She manages to trigger her grimoire to activate a new magic spell that is able to protect all of them from Heath and his group's assault. Taking advantage of the situation, Asta delivers a direct hit to Heath.
