The Emilia camp, preparing for the royal selection, had been enjoying peaceful and fulfilling days with everyone united.
However, that tranquility comes to an end when a single letter arrives, delivered by a messenger. The letter is an invitation addressed to Emilia from Anastasia to the city of water gates, Priestella, one of the five major cities of Lugunica and a candidate for the royal selection.
Accepting the invitation, Subaru and his companions head to Priestella, where various reunions await them. Some are unexpected, some are unintentional, and one is yet to come. Beneath the surface, malevolent forces stir, and an unprecedented crisis looms.
