Asta and Yuno listen as Mereoleona Vermillion, the new captain of the Crimson Lions, berates her squad for placing fifth. She decides to force the squad to train at a hot spring. When she overhears Asta and Yuno talking, she grabs both of them and carries them on her way to collect additional Magic Knights in need of training.
In a bar, the other captains are having drinks, and Yami Sukehiro teases them that his squad placed second. Each time one of the captains gets aggravated, the bartender makes them a cocktail that calms them down. After Nozel Silva, Kaiser Granvorka, and Jack the Ripper leave, Mereoleona walks in to grab Yami and Charlotte Roselei. Sol Marron tries to stop Mereoleona from taking her captain, but Mereoleona lifts both of them. Noelle Silva comes in search of Asta so that he can say goodbye to Kahono and Kiato. Upon seeing Mereoleona, Noelle tries to walk away, but Mereoleona grabs her as well. Once everyone leaves, the bartender removes his disguise and reveals himself to be the Magic Emperor, Julius Novachrono.
Mereoleona carries them all to the Ultime-Volcano Mountain Trail, a volcanic Grand Magic Zone. She orders them to reach the summit by nightfall. Yami and Charlotte rush on ahead, demonstrating Mana Skin which defends against the area's extreme heat and chaotic mana. Noelle struggles to control her magic. Reminded of Acier Silva, Mereoleona approaches Noelle and offers her words of encouragement, which motivate her to not give up.
Elsewhere, Asta is lagging behind because his swords are useless against the heat. Mereoleona tells him to leave if he cannot climb the mountain. Asta stands back up and resolves to reach the summit.
