      We start off hearing two people in the real world talk about logging in and such and it seems to be their first time. We then go to Tabby who is sitting alone in a field, thinking and remembering about the times she spent with Haseo and Sakisaka. She says she wishes she could meet them again, sounding as if she is going to quit, and she drops her guild card for the guild she made and leaves. We then see two players faced with a huge monster; these are presumably the guys we heard from at the beginning. They are about to die when Tabby saves them. Meanwhile we see Phyllo sitting by the river when someone comes up. Phyllo says it’s rare for him to visit and we see a tall person with long blue hair (Kuhn). Phyllo asks him if there is anything he wants to talk to him about and Kuhn says not really. We see Tabby with the two players. She is telling them they should be careful and how they should get some better equipment. She goes with them to buy gear so they don’t get stuff that they can’t use. After that one of them asks her why she is helping them, what’s her intention for doing all this? Tabby just says she is doing for them what someone did for her when she was new. She then heads out with the two of them for revenge at the monsters. Kuhn is still sitting with Phyllo and Phyllo tells him how he is a lot like another person he knows, whenever he would ask what is wrong he would say just what Kuhn did, nothing, and just listen to what Phyllo had to say. Tabby is out with the new members showing them how to defeat monsters. She goes after one of them but isn’t able to do any damage to it. The new members wonder what she is doing hat it is a water attribute monster so you have to attack it with fire. They defeat it for her and ask her if she really knows what she is doing. The three of them head on and have encounters similar to that where Tabby really doesn’t know what she is doing until they get to one monster that looks huge and in the end they are unable to defeat. Back with Phyllo, Kuhn gets up about to leave saying nothing will change if he just stays here. Phyllo then says how it seems only the unusual people are showing up today as Tabby comes up to him with the three new players. She tells him how when she isn’t with Shino or Sakisaka, she can’t do anything. Phyllo says don’t worry about it, that there is a man here who is an expert who can teach them, looking at Kuhn. Kuhn takes the three of them out to the field to try and teach them various things, while learning about the small predicament the two brothers are in. Kuhn gets them to kind of overcome it and work together. Eventually they head back to the monster that killed them and Kuhn has the two brothers fight themselves, telling Tabby to stay out of it. After again finally getting the brothers to overcome their squabble, they work together and then he and Tabby jump in and defeat it. After it is all over, Tabby is talking with Phyllo. Phyllo asks her what she is going to do and she says she doesn’t know, but she wants to stay in the world a bit longer. Phyllo hands Tabby her guild card and says she dropped this. He kind of hints that that kind of moment would be when this would come in handy. Tabby gladly accepts it back.moreless

      We start off seeing Tabby looking sad in front of the altar in the cathedral, having placed flowers there. We see her talking to Phyllo. Phyllo says how she said she was going to quit but Tabby says how she just can’t seem to given the situation. Phyllo says that she should talk to Haseo now; she is the only one who can be by his side now. Haseo is by himself at the waterfall area, looking extremely sad just remembering about Shino. He yells Ovan, and yells what are you doing at a time like this. Meanwhile, Yata and Pai are monitoring things, in particular Tabby and Haseo. They talk about the data they got from Ovan and how it seems like there is something possessing his data. We then see Ovan standing in a field. He walks towards the gate and teleports out and a second later Phyllo teleports in. Phyllo just sits under a tree looking at the surroundings when all of a sudden things get dark and then TriEdge appears. Phyllo pulls out his staff and TriEdge rushes after him attacking him. All Phyllo can do is block and he is pinned up against a tree as TriEdge stares down at him. At the cathedral, Haseo is standing there just looking at the altar. Tabby comes up behind him saying she was looking everywhere for him. Tabby asks him if this is really where Shino was killed. He says yes and just walks away looking depressed. Tabby tries to talk to him but he says he has a phone call. He answers it and says Shino? Tabby kind of wonders what’s going on and Haseo immediately teleports out. Tabby heads back to town and sees Phyllo sitting by the riverside. Tabby says he looks different. He says how if that is really TriEdge, they don’t stand a chance and Tabby just asks in confusion if Phyllo has met him. Meanwhile we see Pai waiting in a dungeon saying he is late. Someone arrives and says its you right. Pai asks if he has accepted her proposal. The girl character says he has, but likes this new body and doesn’t want to go back tot eh secret service. Pai says that TaN is gone so there is nothing to worry about. (This new person obviously being Tawaraya) Pai just heads back and when she gets to town Saburou, the person she was just talking to who used to be Tawaraya, teleports in. They talk in an ally and Pai says they should have talked in secret when they had the chance but Saburou says since he is no longer in TaN she doesn’t want to be secret. (God I hate using pronouns for gender switches, its Kashimashi all over again) Saburou asks about TriEdge and asks if he is related and Pai says maybe. They talk about an event being held and asking if Pai has something to do with it. Pai just kind of gives a maybe answer. Haseo is talking with Phyllo, asking him about the rumors. Haseo asks about the rumor of TriEdge. Phyllo takes Haseo to the field in which he was attacked and tells him he was attacked by TriEdge. Haseo asks if that means he beat TriEdge but he says no, TriEdge let him go. He says that TriEdge didn’t’ view him as an enemy. Phyllo asks about Shino and Haseo says he got a call from her mom since his number was on the call history when he tried to call her after the incident. Haseo tells Phyllo that Shino in reality is in a comma and Phyllo kind of gasps. Haseo then looks around and asks why TriEdge came to this field, for that reason why did Phyllo. Phyllo says this is where Ovan and Shino met. Haseo then goes to the cathedral and just stares at the altar. He remembers being told by Ovan a long time ago to become stronger. He then goes crazy, just attacking the pedestal and then the floor.moreless

      We start off with Shino and Haseo at the waterfall talking. Shino says how she can’t contact him via phone and they get to talking and Haseo asks for her phone number. Shino tells it to him and he gives her his. We then see Tabby and Sakisaka sitting alone together thinking of what they should do. Tabby says that they should create a guild now that the Twilight Brigade is disbanded. We then see Yata in Pai. Pai tells Yata they she hasn’t been able to find a trace of Ovan and Yata tells her to keep looking. As Tabby waits at their newly created guild for Sakisaka, Sakisaka is walking in the town and runs into an old friend. He tells Sakisaka that he should hurry and quit, he is doing so today. Sakisaka tells him he will. Haseo and Shino are walking together when they see some plants for sale. Shino mentions how she likes them but there is no place for her to put them. In real life too, when she gets a bigger house she wants to buy a tree like this since she has no room in the small house she lives in now by herself. Haseo says if she gets a house, he will buy her one of the trees as a present and Shino says he said the same thing Ovan did. At Sakisaka and Tabby’s guild home, Sakisaka arrives and tells Tabby that he is going to quit. He says there is too many bad memories of the Brigade here and his friends are playing anew game that he is going to join with them. He tells Tabby she should too but she says she can’t, Shino is still here and all. Haseo and Shino are together and they stop and Shino tells her that when she answered Haseo’s question before about what Ovan was to her, she lied. She says that she admired him, that he was able to give people a place to exist such as the guild and she hopes to be like him one day. Haseo says she has, because of her he has a place to exist, which seems to move her. Sometime later, we see Shino talking with Phyllo. She tells Phyllo that if she ever disappears, to take care of Haseo. Phyllo says Shino disappeared, Haseo would commit suicide. He says he is half kidding though, but if Shino disappeared Haseo would certainly drastically change. (Holy shit a little heavy on the foreshadowing) Meanwhile, Tabby runs into Haseo and tells him she has something to talk to him about. She tells him that Sakisaka is quitting and she is thinking of doing the same. Haseo says he won’t stop her, and asks if Shino tried to stop her if she would stay. She says probably. Haseo goes off for some training by himself, beating hard monsters in some area when a group of people approach him. They say he is that guy from before and they flash to the first episode when Haseo was attacked and almost killed by two Player Killers but saved by Ovan. They ready their swords to fight and Haseo says bring it on. Meanwhile, we see TriEdge traveling in some black area with a green grid. He arrives at a tangled messed up part and holds out his hand and a bracelet around his wrist glows and it is fixed. Meanwhile, Tabby is talking to Shino and she tells her of the situation with Sakisaka. All of a sudden there is a huge power surge and things get really messed up. Shino just looks shocked like she knows something and then turns with a smile to Tabby and says she has to go, she is being called and runs off to the cathedral. Haseo is fighting the Player Killers and is easily kicking their ass. We then see Shino at the cathedral and TriEdge teleporting in, walking towards the cathedral. Haseo defeats all the Player Killers and gets a call from Tabby saying that Shino went to the cathedral. He chases after her wondering why she went there. Haseo runs to the cathedral and when he opens the doors he sees Shino falling as she had just been killed. She falls to the floor and Haseo runs up to her and tries to heal her but nothing works. All of a sudden beams of data start flooding off her and she starts to disappear. Haseo tries to call her but cant connect and we see TriEdge standing behind him as he holds Shino but he just runs away and walks away without Haseo even seeing him. He holds her helplessly as she disappears completely and we see a TriEdged symbol on the pedestal like the symbol in all the lost grounds. Finally, we see Tabby and Phyllo talking. Tabby tells Phyllo to give Haseo a message that she is quitting, he asks why she can’t do it and she says she can’t tell her rival that she is quitting because Shino has disappeared. Finally, we just see the view of someone’s cramped apartment from their eyes as they lie on the floor, seeing a game controller as they close their eyes and don’t open them.moreless

      We start off seeing a bald man with a toga like garb on approached by a girl in skimpy outfit with long pink pigtails. (Now I’m dead sure this is Yata and Pi from G.U. so I’ll call them that here, more on this in the Impressions). Pi and Yata stand in front of a large display and an image of Ovan struggling in air appears before them. They talk about how things are going. Yata says that his body seems to be normal but his left arm is like a black box. Pi asks what they can do but Yata just says there will be a way to get the information out. Elsewhere, Haseo is talking with Phyllo on the bridge about what he is going to do since Ovan is gone. Phyllo asks if Haseo is playing the game for Ovan, he says no so Phyllo tells him to play it for the people still here. At the home, Tabby and Sakisaka are talking. Sakisaka seems really frustrated and says to Tabby how the guild is pointless now. He explains that it was a guild formed to fine the Key of the Twilight and now that it doesn’t exist and such then there is no point for the guild. Back with Phyllo, Haseo is about to leave when B-Set appears to talk with Phyllo too. Shino is by herself at the waterfall and Haseo approaches her and comforts her a bit. B-Set is talking with Phyllo and mentions how she is thinking of quitting the game. Gord has already quit (damnit) and she mentions how she had feelings for Ovan, that he was the reasons he continued to play the game. She says how she would like to have seen Ovan one more time.

      At the home, Shino and Haseo arrive to Tabby and Sakisaka waiting. They talk about what to do and Haseo says that maybe they should start the search for the Key of the Twilight again. Sakisaka outright refuses saying he doesn’t want it to e like before when they spent days searching random areas. Shino says that it doesn’t exist so it’s pointless and Tabby just kind of agrees with the flow. Tabby says they should look for Ovan though because he is logged in they just can’t contact him. Outside the home Tabby and Sakisaka are talking and Sakisaka says there is no point in looking Ovan. He isn’t coming back because he doesn’t want to and things like that. Tabby just calls him an idiot and walks off. After seeing Ovan struggling in pain some more, back at the home B-Set uses her guest pass to head in and talks to Shino. She tells her that she is quitting the game. Shino asks B-Set what she thinks of Haseo. She says he is a good kid, that Shino should return his feelings and forget about Ovan. Shino says it’s impossible because Ovan is special to her. B-Set says she can’t win against her and says it’s good to get that off her chest, and leaves. We see Tabby and Haseo both by themselves asking themselves what they should do now, that they are lost. We then see at the Cathedral Shino with Phyllo. Shino says how everyone is gone now. Shino says however she feels she is different. That she will be here till the end of this world, even if it becomes a different world. However, she needs some time to organize her thoughts. If “its” to be broken, she wants it done with her own hands.

      At the home, Haseo, Tabby and Sakisaka are there. Haseo tells them all that Phyllo contacted him, that Shino won’t be logging in for a while. Sakisaka gets really pissed off saying why at a time like this. He says he never should have trusted Ovan. He throws his guild card on the floor and says he quits the Twilight Brigade. Meanwhile with Ovan, the scanning is going on and he is yelling for them to stop it. Soon, the kind of lock on his arm breaks and the whole things explodes in a burst of light and Ovan yells in pain. Haseo turns his head back at the home as if he heard it but Tabby hears nothing. Haseo and Tabby talk about Shino and Tabby says how it’s not fair that Haseo only looks at Shino. She says how he doesn’t know how she feels and runs off. In town, Tabby is sitting with Sakisaka and she tells him she is quitting the guild too. The two of them head off together to do normal game stuff. At the cathedral, Haseo teleports in because of a message he got from Shino. He arrives to see Shino sitting by herself, dressed in black. Shino says she heard what happened and is sorry for leaving him with that. Shino gets really serious and says she has decided. She won’t run away like Aura did. Haseo asks about her clothes and she says it’s an indication of her change of heart. Shino says from today on, the Twilight Brigade is disbanded. She says even if there is no guild however, she will wait for Ovan. Haseo says she wont’ be alone, he will wait with her.moreless
