The school semester ends, and Bon, Ryuji, and Renzo follow him. Kamiki bids farewell to Paku. Yukio informs his class that Shura will be accompanying them on a three day long combat training course. At the camp, Renzo displays his fear of bugs and arachnids when he sees a spider. Yuko states that the girls will set up the magic circle. Kamiki recalls hating Shiemi and that she cannot talk to her since she hates her. At dusk, Rin cooks for his class. Ryuji and Renzo are shock at how good his cooking is. Rin recalls skipping school which causes him to miss social events like this. Yukio tells Shiemi that she is paying attention to Rin, but when Shiemi asks Yukio about what he said earlier, he dismisses it. Meanwhile, Shura is drunk; Ryuji is stunned that she is still a minor and 18 years old. Yukio explains that she will turn twenty six this year, but Shura hits him with a can. Yukio gets mad, but his mood and composure quickly returns. Yukio states the mission's objectives about surviving three days to find three lanterns. Shura warns Rin to not use his flames or the paladins and the higher ups will kill him.

The mission starts with everyone chanting on the giant spell circle. Once Yukio fires his gun, the exwires rush out to find the lanterns. Rin and Ryuji find themselves swarm by moths. Kamiki destroys the bugs with her spirits while Ryuji and Bon use their chants. However, Shiemi cannot defeat the moths when the moths rip out the paper that summon her greenman spirit. When Rin hears Shiemi screams, he rushes to brush the moths away. Once Shiemi's head has blood dripping a bit, Rin burst into flames. Rin tries to calm down, but Ryuji sees the blue light. Luckily, Ryuji did not see Rin conjuring the flames. Ryuji informs Rin to shut his flashlight because it attracts moths.

Suddenly, Renzo barges in, and Rin attacks him. Ryuji catches him. As the cellphone rings, Bon's message reveals that Bon has found a lantern, and he tells his group to work together. Meanwhile, at the camp, Yukio is disappointed that Rin used his flames while Shura is laughing because she knew it would happen. Yukio asks Shura if she is going to report to the Vatican. Shura replies that she will not report, and she will train Rin in the way of the sword. Also, she states that she has a thing for guys who aim high. At another location, Amaimon spots Shura and finds that she is hiding the demon slaying sword. Mephisto asks Amaimon if he has the king of the forest to help them.

Shiemi feeds the flames with the dead moths while Renzo combats the moths; Ryuji chants while Rin pulls the cart since he is the strongest. However, they face the destroyed bridge with black stuff. Ryuji continues chanting and sketch the plan. His plan reveals that they will use Peg lantern as a boat.
