Moments later, Ayumu gets killed by a serial murderer who has been wreaking havoc. Then, Eucliwood resurrects Ayumu as a zombie due to her necromancer's powers. As a thank you, Ayumu has Eucliwood live with him and serves her while he seeks out his murderer and goes to school. His life becomes more complicated when two girls arrive and live with him. The second girl is Haruna, a gifted Masou Shoujo who fights Megalos. Due to some accident, Ayumu has absorbed her powers and has to resume Haruna's duties in slaying Megalos. The third girl is Seraphim who is a busty vampire ninja. After Ayumu defeats Seraphim in a match, Seraphim lives at Ayumu's house as a result.

Ayumu's normal life is now forever changed as he uncovers more of Eucliwood's past and gets involved when the King of Night and Chris threatens to harm them.
