... Super Galaxy Knights Deluxe R - Summary

Summary

A small woman from a small town leaves home to go on adventures! Will Mizuki find true love, or will she be too busy being bombarded with magic fruits, model airplanes, and more?!

 

THE STORY SO FAR

 

Book 1: Plague-Round Jamboree

Mizuki Sato visits King Zebugu to request aid for a mysterious crop die-out.

 

Chapter 1: Spear into the Unknown

Mizuki Sato leaves her home town to visit King Zebugu. She needs his aid to keep her village from starving. However, the local information guide, Lodu Rejafi, isn't going to let her pass that easily. Mizuki beats Lodu in a fight, and continues on her quest to see the king.

 

Chapter 2: Branching Narrative

While walking through the woods, Mizuki meets Cahe Wuwa, another adventurer looking to save his village from this plague. Instead of visiting the king, however, Cahe suggests visiting the Ancestral Tree- a talking tree which watches over Cahe's village. When they arrive at the tree, however, they find that it has been possessed by an evil spirit.

Mizuki and Cahe defeat the spirit, and ask the tree for aid. The tree refuses, because it is lazy and a jerk, and tells our heroes to visit the king instead. Mizuki and Cahe leave to continue their journey. At night, the two prepare for the next leg of their journey- into the Sikode Plains.

 

Chapter 3: Plain and Simple

Our heroes arrive in the town of Fort Sikode. They try to buy food at a local restaurant, but their service is denied. They are about to eat out of the trash behind the restaurant when they are saved by the governor of the Sikode Plains, Gynu Ludi. He takes them to his house, and offers them a change of clothes, bedrooms, and dinner for the night. Mizuki and Cahe wash up and get ready for dinner.

As they approach the dining hall, they meet Suzigu Ludi, who is also the governor of the Sikode Plains. She is Gynu's twin sister. During the day, Gynu is the governor, and at night, Suzigu takes over his duties. After the meal, Mizuki and Cahe ask if the governors can spare any food to send to their starving villages. The twins take our heroes to their food storage room, where they collect all surplus food for the village.

They reveal that they have been hit by the plague too, and can't afford to spare any food. Mizuki and Cahe cannot accept this. They wait until night, then sneak into the warehouse to steal as much food as they can carry. However, they find that Suzigu was already inside the warehouse, waiting for our heroes to pull this exact stunt!

 

Chapter 4: Boxing Match

Mizuki and Cahe fight the Ludi twins for control of the food. It is an uphill battle, thanks to Suzigu's control over shadows and, once he shows up, Gynu's control over fire. Our magic-less heroes are completely outclassed. However, they are able to defeat the twins in the end, by trapping them in a ring of boxes. Gynu and Suzigu agree to give our heroes' villages a small amount of food if they let them go. Mizuki and Cahe comply.

The next morning, Mizuki and Cahe leave the city to continue on their quest. The twins reveal that their magic grants them the power of flight- meaning they could have escaped the ring of crates anyway. Mizuki and Cahe debate over what could be done to become stronger, so they can beat any future enemies they come across.

 

Chapter 5: Do You Sea What I Sea?

Mizuki and Cahe realize that the fastest way to get to the king is by boat- so they make plans to head to Cunoze City by ferry the next morning, before taking another ferry up to King Zebugu's castle. However, this won't be a simple pleasure cruise- only an hour into their ride, a magic-using archer robs the passengers blind! Mizuki and Cahe fight the archer- but she has powerful magic techniques, like her Homing and Rapid-Fire arrows, to take them on. Eventually, Mizuki tricks the archer into getting hit by her own attack, ending the battle and saving the ship. They arrive at Cunoze City, only to find that their next leg will be delayed by a few hours. They'll have to spend time in the most dangerous city on the planet...

 

Chapter 6: Ganging Up

Mizuki and Cahe are wandering around Cunoze City when they are assaulted by two of the island's many gangsters. Our heroes are on the ropes when they are suddenly rescued by a mysterious stranger- with incredible strength and the ability to shoot plasma. Her name is Pejiba Va, and she is a vigilante- searching for her parents' killer. Mizuki and Cahe agree to help her out while they wait for their boat, so the three head to another street. There they encounter a gangster named Holoclone. He uses his ability on Mizuki, putting her to sleep, and creating an army of Mizuki-clones that he has control over. In order to beat Holoclone, Cahe stabs him in the chest, killing him. The police immediately arrive and arrest our three heroes, and they wait for their interrogation.

The trio's interrogator arrives. His name is Xobulu Horajufa, the chief of police in Cunoze City. After a bumbled interrogation, the Chief admits that he was the one who killed Pejiba's parents. The four arrange a battle on the roof of the police station. There, we see a collection of model airplanes, all sizes. Chief Horajufa activates his ability, which grants him control over model airplanes. He uses his planes to carry all four of them into the sky, and brings the rest of his models along for the ride. After some deliberation, Mizuki and Pejiba determine that Chief Horajufa can only control one plane at a time. Using this knowledge, Mizuki jumps along the planes over to where the Chief is standing, tricking him into sending the planes away as she does. Once she has a clear line of sight, Pejiba uses her knockoff cannon technique, burning Chief Horajufa and knocking him to the ground. Mizuki realizes that their ferry is ready to leave, and Cahe realizes that Xobulu's magic cut off after his death. Pejiba picks Cahe and Mizuki up off of the falling aircraft, and uses the recoil from her knockoff cannon to send the three of them to the boat, just in the nick of time. The three sail away to continue on their adventure, Pejiba falling asleep from lack of energy.

 

Chapter 7: It's Electric

Mizuki, Cahe, and Pejiba are walking to Wasuze Village, where the Giduli Royal Army is based. Mizuki is interested in learning how to use magic. Pejiba teaches her the basics, but Mizuki isn't really getting it. The three arrive in the village and check into a hotel – Pejiba sharing a room with Mizuki, and Cahe getting a room on his own. Pejiba is teaching Mizuki how to focus her emotions better when Cahe knocks on the door. He invites Pejiba to dinner in the restaurant across the street, and she accepts. At the restaurant, the two listen to a rocker with electric powers named Electric Zebra, and begin to fall for each other.

The next morning, the trio begins to leave town, when they are stopped by a pair of soldiers for attempting to visit the king. Our heroes fight the two soldiers, whose abilities revolve around manipulating bullets. The soldiers come for backup from General Zofuhu. Zofuhu – also known as Electric Zebra – arrives. Our heroes battle Electric Zebra, but his electricity and cloud-based powers are too much for them. The two soldiers grab Pejiba and shoot her arms. Due to his feelings for Pejiba, Cahe unlocks a magic ability. He shoots beams out of his sword, slicing the soldiers into pieces. He catches Pejiba as she falls, and they kiss. Electric Zebra, seeing the true love on display, decides to let the trio walk free.

 

Chapter 8: Magic and Majesty

Pejiba is recovering in the hotel, and Cahe is watching her – so Mizuki goes to talk to King Zebugu alone. At first, King Zebugu seems friendly. He listens to Mizuki, and agrees to tell her what's been going on. He takes her to his royal kitchen, and reveals that he stole all the food for himself, to eat in one giant meal.

Mizuki attacks Zebugu. Zebugu retaliates by showing off his magic ability – which grants him control over air. Mizuki still has no magic ability of her own, so she resorts to using abilities that she's seen throughout her journey. This method of fighting exhausts Mizuki, and Zebugu is able to get some powerful hits in, but the sheer number of powers that Mizuki uses is enough to keep the king on his toes. Soon enough, however, Mizuki is out of energy, is coughing up blood, and has a ton of broken bones. King Zebugu declares that Mizuki is defeated. Mizuki uses Kindergartener's “I'm Rubber, You're Glue” technique to reflect the insult back, defeating the king. Zebugu sends the food back, and agrees to become a better person in the future. Mizuki reunites with Cahe and Pejiba, and the three of them walk off to get some food.

 

 

Book 2: Nothing is Wrong

All the magic in the world is gone - can Mizuki stop King Zebugu's plans and bring it back?!

 

Chapter 1: Only One Talent To Show

Mizuki is back at work at Farms R We. She's super tired, but she's still excited to use her magic to win tomorrow's talent show. Mizuki passes out after using her magic to help a little boy. She wakes up the next day completely refreshed. At the talent show, however, she realizes that her magic is completely gone. She runs off to investigate while her boss and adoptive dad, Mr. Enetoro, stalls for time.

The Ancestral Tree reveals to Mizuki that King Zebugu shut down the magic portal, which is the reason all the magic is gone. The tree also reveals that each of Zebugu's most trusted governors are carrying one of the magic gems that's used to keep the portal open. Mizuki takes the gem from the tree, and heads over to Cahe's house for backup. At Cahe's house, Mizuki finds Pejiba. Turns out, the two are married and have a baby, who they named after Electric Zebra. Because of this, they can't come with her on this adventure. However, they do give her a tip on which governor to visit next – Zaxaty Go, King Zebugu's sister. Mizuki borrows Cahe's map and goes on her merry way.

 

Chapter 2: There's An Alarm! In The Art Gallery

Mizuki heads to Doveca City on Doveca Island only to find all the residents falling down around her. They explain that they normally wear roller skates everywhere as part of their culture. However, after Zaxaty locked herself in her castle, they took the roller skates off. Thus, the trouble with walking. Mizuki went to visit Zaxaty and found that her magic ability was art. With no magic, Zaxaty's life was in ruins. However, Zaxaty agreed with her brother's goals more than her own needs, so she opted to stand up to Mizuki. Zaxaty had a huge advantage over Mizuki due to her roller skates. Mizuki had to trick Zaxaty out of the skates to win the fight. After one more gem taken and some friendly flirting, Mizuki continued on her quest to the nearest region – Vepyxu City.

 

Chapter 3: Having A Sword Sure Beats Having A Pen

In Vepyxu City, Mizuki has no idea where the governor's house is. She asks a mysterious scuba man, who tells her the directions and the password to get in (in admittedly a very rude way). At the house, she meets Governor/Mayor Taci Ramino. Taci Ramino says that because he doesn't have any magic, King Zebugu didn't give him a gem. He then warns Mizuki about Sword Warrior, an incredibly dangerous fighter who prowls the streets at night.

At night, Mizuki notices that the gems were stolen out of her pockets through the open window. She climbs up a nearby skyscraper and finds Sword Warrior. Mizuki fights him in an attempt to get the gems back. During their fight, Mizuki realizes that the magic has been turned back on. Sword Warrior explains that he uses a generator in his lair to provide magic to the city. They continue their fight, Mizuki using Sword Warrior's teleportation and sword creation abilities along with the other magic abilities she'd learned. After getting up close during the fight, Mizuki had enough certainty to reveal Sword Warrior's final secret. Sword Warrior and Taci Ramino are the same person. The two continued fighting, and Mizuki was able to get the upper hand. However, as Mizuki flew above her opponent triumphant, she passed out again, falling from the skyscraper to the streets below.

 

Chapter 4: Intercity Affair

Mizuki wakes up at Taci's breakfast table. Taci explains to Mizuki that copying people's powers is significantly more draining than using your own power – which explains why Mizuki has been so tired lately, and why she passed out both at the beginning of the book and in the previous chapter. After this, Taci reveals that he already has four of the five gems, and offers to take Mizuki with him to find the fifth. He also reveals that he's planning on killing King Zebugu and becoming supreme leader of the Giduli Kingdom, for some reason.

After this, Taci takes Mizuki on his biplane, and they travel to Zebugu's castle. Mizuki notes the missing third peak of the Buhivy Mountains in quite possibly the most annoying way imaginable. They then talk to Rejidi Sobygu, the royal wizard from the last book. Rejidi begrudgingly tells the two the location of the magic portal – Zoramo City. The two then leave to retrieve the final gem.

The two arrive at Wetuno Town in the Wetuno Desert. The entire town is a penal colony for people who tell too many puns (a PUNAL colony, if you will). After wandering around the town marketplace, the two run into Coruby Zozi. Coruby is the punniest of them all, and goads the two into a hole in the ground. This hole leads to a network of tunnels that Coruby set up with his ability (digging tunnels) prior to the magic being turned off. Mizuki and Taci are able to find Coruby by tricking him into yelling punchlines out loud. They defeat Coruby and take the gem, then move on to the magic portal.

 

Chapter 5: Now You're Thinking With Portals

Mizuki and Taci land in the extravagant Zoramo City. After asking around, the two determine that the magic portal is in the enchanted forest outside the city limits. At the portal, the two run into King Zebugu. He has been building a magic generator this entire book, and is planning on using it to turn a profit off the kingdom's magic users. Taci fights Zebugu while Mizuki places the gems back in the portal. When the magic portal turns on, however, a demon is released, bent on conquering the world. It is revealed that every character in the comic knew that there was a demon trapped in the portal except for Mizuki. The demon stabs Zebugu through the chest. It reveals its name to be “Nothing”, and claims to be the demon that was possessing the Ancestral Tree in Book 1 Chapter 2. Suddenly, Nothing is attacked by Electric Zebra. It is revealed that Zebra, Coruby, Gynu, Suzigu, and Zaxaty all knew about the demon too, and have arrived to help put a stop to it.

 

Chapter 6: Growth Into Darkness

Mizuki comes up with a plan to beat the demon, and explains it to Taci. Zaxaty, Coruby, Gynu, Suzigu, and Zebra all do their best to fight the demon Nothing, but they're unable to have much of an effect. After Zaxaty's arms are broken, the five regroup in an underground cavern. Mizuki shows up, and reveals her plan to the others. Once Nothing finds them, Mizuki attacks with all her might. Nothing attempts to possess Mizuki, but Mizuki tricks it into infecting a banana instead. Zebra uses this opportunity to attack Nothing. When Nothing fights back, Zebra disappears, and Nothing accidentally hits itself. This causes massive damage. Mizuki attempts to finish the job, but she passes out from magic usage. When Nothing attacks Mizuki, it is revealed that the Mizuki fighting Nothing was a clone created with Holoclone's ability. The real Mizuki has been sleeping in Taci's arms, and is now well-rested. Mizuki uses the infected banana and stabs Nothing with it, destroying the demon. Zebugu is revealed to still be alive. Mizuki and the others fly in a plane back to Hevuga Village. There, they all work together, combining all their skills to get second place at the talent show.

 

 

Book 3: Party Every Knight

Mizuki and her friends receive some exciting news. Can they beat the trials and become true Galaxy Knights?!

 

Chapter 1: Needing Some Space
Mizuki gets a letter from Taci Ramino - the Galaxy Knights, an organization dedicated to using magic for peace, are holding open tryouts! The next morning, Mizuki heads over to the Galaxy Knights HQ in Zoramo City, where she is met by Taci, Pejiba, and Zebugu. Other participants in the tryouts include Cufaba Kuzirudu (a restaurant owner), Lodu Rejafi (a spear user), and Ugaho Solaly (a yoga instructor). Heca Nujubolo then arrives on the scene - he has the ability to control water, and he is the president of the Lycy chapter of the Galaxy Knights. Also, there are multiple planets in this comic, and the Giduli Kingdom is on a planet called Lycy.

Anyway, they head to the Galaxy Knights' space station HQ. There they meet the rest of the council in charge of the Galaxy Knights - Chadis Periches from Coulde, Maki Robea from Olimipo, Dr. Bodanic from Gorun, and the leader, Zinoa Aster from Krones. The trainees are each assigned a room and roommate. Mizuki heads to her room and meets Stella Aster, daughter of Director Aster. However, for some reason Mizuki stumbles over her words while talking to this incredibly tall woman, and she ends up giving a bad first impression. At lunch, Mizuki meets up with Pejiba, Cufaba, and Taci - and after some conversation, the four are called for their first trial!


Chapter 2: Outrageous Olimiponian Obstacles!

The participants head down to the Olimipo surface in a series of shuttles, led by Maki Robea. Maki's power lets her talk to machines and give them commands, so the shuttles don't have pilots. The shuttles land near a pit outside Olimipo City. Inside the pit is a pool of water, with a platform suspended over it. Dr. Robea reveals that the first challenge is an obstacle course. First, they must traverse a platform with holes, avoiding falling into the water. Second, they must climb a rock wall. Third, they must traverse the pit again, this time swinging on ropes. The first sixteen participants to finish the obstacle course move on to the next trial!

The participants begin the race. Stella uses a power called “Constellation Form: Equuleus” which converts her legs into horse legs for a burst of speed. We meet Bily, a woman wearing overalls, and her brother Xowa, who can absorb light from his surroundings and shoot it out as an attack. However, Xowa is knocked off the platform by Mizuki. Bily uses her magic to summon a spectral right arm to grab Xowa's right arm – however, her ability activates, and she steals Xowa's right arm, dropping him into the water. A psychic named Uruji uses her magic to sense the energy of the other participants. She panics due to several participants having massive magic capacity levels. In her panic, she accidentally projects her thoughts to a passing woman named Yqin. Yqin agrees with Uruji's sentiment about the overpowered opponents, but is determined to pass, and offers Uruji a chance to team up after this trial is complete.

Mizuki is running out of energy, so she creates a holoclone and begins carrying her sleeping body. However, she's attacked by a fighter wielding hammer magic, named Rypygy. Mizuki is able to block the hammers with magic, but her cloned body is running out of energy. So, she runs away, carrying a second holoclone and disguising her real body with the platform using Suzigu's shadow magic. Rypygy catches up to Mizuki and finally lands a hit, but by that point Mizuki's real body has completely recovered. Rypygy is annoyed that Mizuki has so much versatility in her magic – so Mizuki offers to train Rypygy after the trial.

Pejiba is climbing up the rock wall when she comes across Yqin, who seems exhausted. Yqin locks eyes with Pejiba, copying her willpower and stamina. This gives Yqin the energy to continue with the challenge. Taci and King Zebugu arrive at the top of the rock climbing wall. Taci looks over the edge, and realizes that the third phase of the challenge requires the participants to climb ropes over lava. Taci teleports to a nearby rope as Zebugu flies off the platform. A man named Fiace with a magic motorcycle drives up the rock wall. To use the lava to his favor, he switches gears on his motorcycle, giving his motorcycle glider wings. He flies down to the lava, then switches to a rocket gear to fly through the finish line in third place.

We see a few more people finish the challenge, and some participants hanging from the ropes. Bily is frightened, and lacks confidence in herself to complete the challenge. She hears her brother's cheers from the audience. With renewed spirit, Bily uses her brother's arm to shoot a blast of light backwards. The momentum blasts her to the finish line. However, the beam of light burned some of the ropes. Stella grabs onto a burned rope, not noticing the damage. Mizuki does notice, and swings over to Stella. Stella is annoyed at Mizuki, and kicks her into the lava as the ropes break. Stella activates “Constellation Form: Pegasus” which lets her grow wings and fly away. Falling towards the lava, Mizuki uses both knockoff cannon and wind powers to create a new technique called “Tornado Cannon”. The move pushes her back and through the finish line, but completely drains her energy. The participants who passed the challenge are King Zebugu, Taci, Fiace Cuiepa, Wenyc Ajith, Dirzho Sherueth, Ello Enaci, Pejiba, Bily Poshupavi, Nezy Lizi, Yqin Imu, Kapu Zhuyozhy, Uruji Thyfazon, Rypygy Zyfe, Stella, Cufaba, and Mizuki. On the ride back to the station, Mizuki asks Pejiba if she can stay with her that night instead of with Stella.


Chapter 3: In-Flight Interlude #1

Mizuki and Pejiba are rudely awakened by Pejiba's roommate, Kapu. Kapu got into bed with Mizuki & Pejiba to watch them sleep, curious about their close friendship. Mizuki left Pejiba's room and returned to her own room, where Stella was waiting. Stella revealed that the lava wasn't real, so Mizuki wasn't in any real danger - but Stella hoped that attacking Mizuki would keep her from bothering her.

In the cafeteria, Rypygy is approached by Fiace. Fiace apparently used to be a guitar player, and lost his big break to Rypygy after they appeared in a meme video. Rypygy leaves, annoyed at Fiace's strange obsessions. Meanwhile, Stella enters the cafeteria, and encounters Taci. Taci dropped his wallet, pretending that it was Stella's. He then tries to bribe Stella with his wallet and with some coupons, for some unknown reason. Taci teleports away after Stella threatens him.

Mizuki and Rypygy arrive in the gym. There, Mizuki gives Rypygy some tips on how to use their powers more effectively - trying to figure out just how much power Rypygy's hammer ability has so they can use it accordingly. Once they've figured out what Rypygy can handle, Mizuki leaves to get lunch, lamenting on her clashes with Stella.


Chapter 4: Water You Doing With Your Life?!

The next challenge takes place in the Giduli Kingdom – off the coast of Cunoze City. Heca Nujubolo instructs the participants to organize into groups of either 3 or 4. Mizuki pairs up with Pejiba, Taci, and Taci's roommate Ello. After the teams are formed, it is revealed that this will be a diving challenge. One person stays on the surface to guide the team, while everyone else shares an air supply to dive for 10 rubies scattered underwater. The divers will use Brocasters, which take the users' thoughts and broadcast them over radio. Taci is chosen to be the guide, and all the divers head to the docks. Zebugu, Fiace, and some other participants seem to be using their magic to create their own air supply so that they don't have to be tethered to their teammates. Mizuki sees Stella use Constellation Form: Pisces to grow gills, and copies the ability as they all dive.

Mizuki, Pejiba, and Ello visit some underwater ruins, which is actually an abandoned tourist trap. Pejiba and Ello encounter Zebugu searching around, and go to distract him while Mizuki searches for the ruby. Mizuki finds the ruby next to a merry-go-round, but also encounters Rypygy. Zebugu uses his air ability to shoot streams of bubbles at Pejiba and Ello. Ello enhances his fists to their full power with magic, and punches through the bubble of air surrounding Zebugu. Zebugu escapes. Meanwhile, Mizuki is confused by Rypygy's enhanced mobility underwater. She realizes that Rypygy is summoning and de-summoning various hammers under their clothes to quickly change their buoyancy. Mizuki uses magic to heat the water, changing its density and tripping up Rypygy. Mizuki takes the ruby as Rypygy leaves. Rypygy reveals that they left that ruby to distract Mizuki – they already had three rubies, and two was enough to guarantee passing the challenge.

Mizuki, Pejiba, and Ello rush to a coral reef. Ello hears a voice in his head claiming that it's from the Dragon Princess, which asks him if he can kill Mizuki. However, everyone else can hear the voice. The voice is revealed to be Uruji, the psychic, who is monitoring her team from the surface. Yqin attempts to sneak up behind the trio while they're distracted, but Uruji accidentally broadcasts Yqin's thoughts to the team with her powers. Fiace shows up to join his teammates in the fight, but he accidentally hits Yqin into the coral. Yqin uses her willpower lock to copy Mizuki's stamina, keeping her from feeling the pain from the coral's toxin. Yqin draws her sword to fight, but Fiace inserts himself into the situation, switching his motorcycle's gears to show off his most powerful form. Doing this disable the air bubble around his motorcycle, so Fiace swims away. Uruji attempts to annoy the fighters into submission with her psychic powers, but Taci stabs her. Yqin runs away. With their opponents gone, the heroes see a ruby lying within the coral reef. Ello uses his magic to stretch himself out and grab the ruby.

Mizuki, Pejiba, and Ello swim to a sunken battleship attraction, passing what appear to be landmines under the water (though Taci assures them that the mines are fake). Inside the ships cockpit is a ruby on one of the chairs. However, Nezy arrives out of one of the other doors. She summons the ghost of her dead father to beat up our leading trio, then escapes with the ruby.

The three search for rubies elsewhere in the sunken ship, and encounter a giant shark. The shark turns out to be a transformed Dirzho, who calls for backup from Kapu and Wenyc. Kapu is using her magic to possess a small doll, while Wenyc is using his magic to transform into electricity and hide inside a battery. After taking some heavy damage, the trio devises a plan. Mizuki forces Dirzho to transform into a squid, while Ello knocks Wenyc out of the water and Pejiba fires a plasma ball at Kapu. However, Kapu is able to steal Mizuki's ruby and escape. Pejiba uses a plasma cutter to free Mizuki from Dirzho. Mizuki accidentally broadcasts her true thoughts about Pejiba over the Brocaster, which is so embarrassing that she destroys her Brocaster and leaves the ship.

Mizuki swims alone through the minefield and spots a ruby. Stella sees the same ruby, however, and the two prepare for battle. Stella uses Constellation Forms Hercules and Equuleus, but Mizuki counters with some shadow and electric magic. Stella is on the ropes when she realizes that the landmines were real, and that one was tripped by Mizuki's electricity. Stella begins throwing the mines towards Mizuki. Mizuki uses Heca's water manipulation to redirect all the explosions away from herself. Soon, the mines are gone, but Mizuki runs out of energy and passes out. Unwilling to let Mizuki die, Stella uses Volans form to rescue her.

Mizuki wakes up the docks, with Heca using magic to pull water out of her lungs. Stella reminds Mizuki that even though she saved her life, they still aren't friends. The challenge is over. Mizuki's team was only able to get one ruby, but they still beat the team of Yqin, Uruji, and Fiace, who weren't able to get any. Pejiba suggests that Mizuki could use Yqin's willpower lock as a way to bypass her stamina issues. Taci advises against this, but refuses to say why. The participants all leave on the nearby shuttle.

 
Chapter 5: In-Flight Interlude #2
