SummaryEditJumping through a forst at night, Levi encounters several demonic creatures but easily dispatches them before gazing at the moon.
Meanwhle, Arata notes that he has never seen Levi and Akio's Magus Mode, having assumed that they were already in ther Modes. The Headmaster and Abyss Trinity both confirm Arata's assumption, stating that those who focus on fighting are always on managing their magic constantly. As such, Levi's current form is called Sorcerer Mode, the opposite of the Magus Mode.
As Levi is about to launch her attack, Mira is startled to learn that her grimoire is unable to analyze Levi's magic, revealing the ninja had already mastered a second Thema, which she confirms. Levi then vanishes into her shadows while Lilith and Mira prepare themselves within their barrier. However, Akio remarks that the barrier is useless as Levi appears from Mira's shadow and grazes her. The ninja states that her incorpreal blade does not have a physical form, meaning the barrier is powerless against her current state. Subsequently, Levi commands the shadows to erotically entangle the girls, much to their embarrassment and the commentator's pleasure.
Observing the match, Lugh notes that the ninja did not use that skill during their fight. Hijiri surmise that Levi perhaps obtained the second Thema in order to oppose Lugh or she simply conceals many hidden cards regardless if her life is on the line. The two can only speculate how the hardships and difficulties Levi experienced in her past.
Lilith eventually attempts to retaliate against Levi, however the ninja reminds her that she is currently immune to physical attacks. Nevertheless, Lilith warns her not to underestimate an instructor before shooting a flare into the sky. Levi quickly understands Lilith's intentions to disappitate the shadows through light, although the flare only strengthens the shadows instead. But Lilith next transforms the flare into multiple crystals, causing the shadows to dwindle.
Meanwhile, Lugh discusses with Hijiri about Lilith's plan to hinder Levi's ninjutsu by creating half-shadows.Forced out of the shadows, Levi is then attacked by Mira who finished analyzing her second Thema, Spero, however Akio manages to protect her partner. Regardless, Lilith next summons countless of different guns in the air, surrounding her opponents. While Akio and Levi comment on Lilith's genious, Mira then casts an anti-spell to remove their magic defenses. Finally, Lilith unleashes a barrage of shots on the two, however the duo manages to avoid the onslaught using only only their martial arts and physicality. Nevertheless, the Trinity Seven of Invidia and Gula note that they are in a difficult situation and must resort to use cheap tricks. As Mira is about to respond, she suddenly finds herself being hugged by Arata much to her embarrassment. Using the chance, Akio then prepares to launch her next strike, apologizing to her superior. Meanwhile, "Arata" reminds Mira that she would exploit her weakness, which the Trinity Seven of Superbia expected before ensnaring the imposter. As Levi returns to her true appearance, Mira explains that she anticapted the ninja's action, much to Levi's chagrin. With Levi incapacitated, Akio ponders her next move before noticing Master Akarsha. As a result, Akio announces her team's defeat and surrenders the match. Lilith questions Akio if she is certain, but their opponents nevertheless assure them that they are content before the teams express their gratitude to one another. As the match concludes, Master Akarsha discusses with Master Liber that Akio noticed their presense and decided to withhold her trump card. Nevertheless, Anastasia-L states the Trinity Seven is dangerous, which Liber assumes is a sign that they will begin their next move. Anna confirms her conclusions as they will start their own tournament, the Underground Magic Research Tournament.
