Plot Summary

Opening theme:

"The Everlasting Guilty Crown" by EGOIST

Yuu greets Gai (who wakes up) as the new king, and he tells him that Mana is going to be born shortly. He states that the will of the human race is to evolve and that no one can stop it. (This is a flashback of Gai) Back in the present, Gai gets a message from his troops about the U.N. Inori calls to Gai because she senses his sadness. She tells him that his heart touched her. Gai replies his wish will come true, and Inori sighs. At Kurachi's place, Shibungi reports that the 256 Leukocytes are a bluff to buy time. Shu tells them that they have still have a chance. Haruka backs up Shu's words. Shu stares at the red object in his Void hand. Arugo borrows Oogumo's weapon; Tsugumi and Haruka get ready. Ayase asks Shu to help her get into the Endlave. As he carries Ayase, Ayase asks Shu if he can use a gun against Gai. Shu replies yes and tells Ayase to stay pure because he has to get dirty. Ayase blushes at his words. He asks her for her Void, but Ayase tells him to return it when he is done.

The army moves in and drops the soldiers. Kenji notices the massive army and tells Gai that they must hate him so much. Gai uses his powers to summon and combine the Voids from Kenji, Yuu, and Arisa to create a giant bow like weapon. He fires it which spreads tons of arrows at the U.N. troops. The arrows explodes and converts everyone into purple crystals. Meanwhile, Keido signals his men to release the Endlave Ghost unit. Daryl asks Rowan why he is still here, and Rowan asks him the same. Daryl replies that he wants to choose how he dies. Kurachi, Shu, and their forces head out. Rowan's men alert that Funeral Parlor are storming through them. Daryl states that the Endlave has taken out a fake. Tsugumi hacks into the Endlave's computer systems to turn off the enemy's Endlave. Rowan urges his men to repair the system. Meanwhile, Tsugumi bid farewell to Shu's group and tells them to save Inori, so they all have a happy ending.

In the center of GHQ, Gai tells Inori that he will erase her memories, emotions, and everything. He tells her to resent him. A brief flashback of Gai awakening Inori is reveal. Inori explains that Gai had gave her life and that she met Shu. Elsewhere, Shu rescues a soldier from an Endlave. Back to Gai and Inori, Gai asks what Shu gave to Inori. Inori explains that Shu has shown her beauty and the ugliness. She states she loves Shu for being human. Shu uses his powers to transfers the soldier's cancer to him despite Ayase's disapproval. Inori tells Gai that she wants to fall in love like a normal person. At another location, Arugo tries to call Tsugumi with no luck. Haruka thinks the security is back online. Gai asks Inori if she remembers Shu, and Inori sings which Shu only hears. Shu leads his group. At a ship, Kanon watches with a worry face. In Central Command, Haruka sees Keido using an elevator. Yuu greets Shu and his group, and Arugo tries to shoot him, but Yuu reflects it. He separates Shu from his group. When Shu asks Yuu for his identity, Yuu explains he is the symbol of Daath. He tells him that their organization are deciding who should mate with Mana, Gai or Shu. He materializes a red apple and asks if he vows to obliterate all of mankind and live with Mana for eternity. Shu declines; Yuu states that Gai said yes to that question.

Now, Yuu prepares to use the Voids from his followers. He uses a whip and spinning blades to attack Shu. Shu gets disgusted when one of Yuu's followers dies due to his Void breaking. Yuu gets in close with Shu and scolds him for wasting his time on Inori despite that Mana has chosen Shu. Shu attacks and blinds Yuu with Arugo's Void and delivers a blast to Yuu. He explains to Yuu why Inori is special while Yuu prepares to combine the Voids of all of his followers. Yuu fires at Shu first, but Shu's Void reflects Yuu's attack against him. At the same time, Inori's tear drops on the purple crystals which becomes a flower. Yuu disintegrates. Gai informs Shu that Inori is gone and that Mana has awaken.
