Before the elves' attack on the Clover Kingdom, in the Common Realm town of Tiulyu, Dazu Tayak receives medical treatment from Bow Nocde, the town's doctor. Bow offers to let Dazu stay longer, and though Dazu really wants to stay, she acknowledges that she should be getting home soon and begins the walk back to her house. That night, Dazu makes dinner for her husband, Vide, and mother-in-law, Meshu. When Meshu's soup gets cold, Dazu offers to heat it up in the kitchen, but Meshu tells Dazu to use her Catalyst Magic instead. Dazu complies and borrows Vide's Spatial Magic and Meshu's Fire Magic, allowing her to easily heat up the soup. As her family is expressing their envy over her magic attribute, the elves' attack begins and the Eye of the Midnight Sun's base passes over Tiulyu, dropping rubble everywhere. A group of possessed Purple Orcas attack the town. In the destruction, Vide and Meshu are trapped under the rubble. Dazu tries to free them but is unable to do so. Later on, one of the possessed Magic Knights approaches Dazu and is about to kill her, but is stopped by the mass exorcism.
A few days later, while the people of Tiulyu begin reconstruction of their town, Dazu places flowers at the graves of her husband and mother-in-law. Bow walks up to her and shows her a newspaper that reports the scapegoat story about Asta and Secre Swallowtail being servants of devils and being behind the attack. The revelation drives Dazu to tears.
After the meeting between Julius Novachrono, Damnatio Kira, and the Magic Knight Captains, in which it was decided that verdict of Asta and Secre's trial would be postponed for six months, Damnatio is confronted by Kabwe Carillon, a guard who works for the Magic Parliament. Kabwe is furious with the postponement, due to losing his nephew in the attack, and demands that justice be served. Damnatio tells him that there are many factors at work and that the best option for the time being is to work with the Magic Knights and Heart Kingdom to fight the Spade Kingdom and its devil, as such it is best to let Asta and Nero have a temporary reprieve. When Kabwe continues to object, Damnatio simply orders him to be silent. As Kabwe walks through the Royal Capital, thinking that the scales of justice have tipped toward darkness, he is approached by Dazu and Bow, who explain the plight that they have suffered at the hands of devils and tell him that they seek to recruit other like-minded citizens on a mission of vengeance. Kabwe is interested and asks to hear more details.
At the Black Bulls base, Asta and Noelle Silva are training. Noelle wants to stop for a drink of water, though Asta is not thirsty. As Noelle goes in for a drink, Asta decides to do some physical training. Inside the base, Gauche Adlai and Finral Roulacase enter through one of Finral's portals. They join Noelle for some water. Gauche decides to go visit his little sister Marie Adlai, but wants to clean himself off first. Back outside, Asta makes it to 1,000 sit-ups and Noelle decides to make him a sandwich.
In the town of Nairn, a team of Devil Banishers, the anti-devil vigilantes, arrive to kidnap Marie. The other children try to stop them and one of the nearby townspeople goes for help. He tries to call out Sister Theresa Rapual, but she is away at a meeting of nuns, so Neige steps into the fray himself and blasts them with snow. A barrier protects the vigilantes, while Neige is ambushed and taken down. As the townspeople are coming to help, the vigilantes tie up the children and take Marie. As they leave, Marie calls out for Gauche to come save her.
Back at the Black Bulls base, Gauche thinks he hears an angel call out to him and tells Finral to take him to Marie, telling his fellow Knight that he would be there for a while. Outside, Secre asks Asta how long he plans to continue doing sit-ups, to which Asta replies that he plans to go to 10,000, though he loses count and starts over to ensure that his workout does not end early. Disguised, Bow stumbles out from the nearby bushes and pretends to be hurt. Asta and Secre, who changes to her human form, go over to check on her, but once they get close, Bow knocks them out with a powerful sedative gas. The Devil Banishers briefly celebrate their accomplishment of capturing the servants of devils and take note of Secre's horns, identifying them as a sign that she had used Forbidden Magic. They try to secure Asta and Secre, but they are surprised to find that Asta can still move. Secre uses her Sealing Magic to take the tracking bracelet which had been placed on him as part of the arrangement for his trial verdict being postponed.
Noelle Silva intervenes, but before she could do any significant damage, one Banisher uses Flower on the Roadside to whack Noelle's wand out of her hand, and another uses Sandscreen to temporarily blind her. The vigilantes run away with Asta and Secre over their shoulders, but Noelle chases after them with her Valkyrie Dress spell. She manages to make them drop Asta, but they escape after one of them uses Permeation Magic, successfully kidnapping Secre. As Noelle tries to wake Asta, Gauche and Finral arrive in Nairn where the children inform them that Marie was kidnapped, which angers Gauche.
