Matal and his group enter the Fifth Level District. When the citizens beg him to stop draining their Magoi, Matal gets overwhelmed. He pushes a child and blurts out that he only wants to save the magicians. Deep in the lab that is beneath the Fifth Level District, he makes preparations to manipulate the black Djinn. To do that, he must fall into depravity himself. On one of the Leam ships, Titus wonders if he should fight along Aladdin or spends the remainder of his life with Marga. In Magnostadt, three Dark Djinn emerges above the city. Aladdin and Alibaba hurry to stop the black Djinn, but they find the black Djinn heading towards Kou Empire’s army, specifically Kouha’s forces.

Then, the three black Djinn blast at Kouha’s forces. Kouha manages to protect some of his group with his Djinn Equip. Enraged at the loss of his squadron, Kouha transforms into his Djinn Equip. His attacks are not effective when the Black Djinn start to regenerate. Kouha resorts to using his Extreme Magic.

As a result, Kouha’s Magoi gets depleted severely. Then, more Black Djinn arrive. Matal states that he has plenty of Magoi and a limitless amount of Black Rukh since the Black Rukh will return back to him. Meihou recalls how Lerage chose Kouha over his older brother, Kouen. Lerage did not want to see a world rule by one king, and she finds Kouha worthy. The soldiers at Kou Empire gossip about Kouha and his group of rejects. In a meeting, Kouha tells his group that he will take care of them all.

Then, Alibaba arrives to Kouha’s aid and uses his fullbody Djinn Equip to burn a large group of Black Djinn. More Black Djinn beasts arrive to the battle field. Alibaba prepares to use his Extreme Magic. Yet, one of Kouen’s soldiers blast one of the Black Djinn.
