The boys arrive in Kikka and register for the Magic Knights Entrance Exam. While all the candidates are waiting, they are approached by the anti-birds which flock towards those with less magic power, so they stay away from Yuno and swarm Asta. Trying to get away from the birds, Asta runs into Yami Sukehiro, captain of the Black Bulls, and his companions Finral Roulacase and Gordon Agrippa.
After Yami leaves, Sekke Bronzazza introduces himself to Asta and describes the captains and their squads as they enter: Nozel Silva of the Silver Eagles, Fuegoleon Vermillion of the Crimson Lions, Jack the Ripper of the Green Mantises, Charlotte Roselei of the Blue Roses, Gueldre Poizot of the Purple Orca, Dorothy Unsworth of the Coral Peacocks, Rill Boismortier of the Azure Deer, and William Vangeance of the Golden Dawns.
During the exam, Asta struggles with various tests while Yuno and Sekke display great skill. For the final test, the candidates find partners to fight. Sekke chooses Asta because he sees Asta as a weak peasant. However, Asta defeats Sekke with a single swing and announces that he is aiming to become the Magic Emperor.
