Arin explains that this is Yui's true appearance, the form she appears in her dreams is her ideal self. As for the dragon , Arin explains that the creature is a high level monster that appears during a Breakdown Phenomenon.

After hearing her statement, Arata becomes determined to join the fight, asking Levi to her to teach him how to use his gun. Levi agrees, stating that this was the fastest path to saving Yui. Arata comments that the two are quite close, although the ninja clarifies that they are only close due to the isolating nature of the Themas. As Arata is determined to rule over the Breakdown Phenomenon, Levi asks Lilith to help teach Arata, despite Mira's uncertainty.After Lilith begins to explain to Arata the process to use a spell, he decides to use her magic.
