Get the information below.
■ Visitors Summoned from a Different Time Axis?!
Magna, a member of Raj’s party, reunites with his friend Amer. She travels together with a self-proclaimed pirate named Kyle and a young boy of the Metral tribe named Resi.
Magna and Amer are delighted by their reunion, but Resi looks confused by the situation.
Resi knows of Amer, but Amer doesn’t know of him. And he’s a close friend of hers, because the partner who he served as Guardian Beast was a woman.
Amer somehow realizes that her and everyone else came from an alternate world.
In that world, Magna and Hasaha do not exist, and in the position of him and his master, there is a girl named Toris instead.
Why are the different time axis intersecting? Why has everyone been summoned? The mystery of the cocoon world is getting deeper…
Amer (voiced by Houko Kuwashima)
A saint dubbed the “Angel of Abundance” born from the fragments of the soul of Almine.
As a result of the battle with her longtime enemy Melgitos in the “Puppet War,” she was reborn as an incarnation of the holy tree, and although now she lives quietly in the Taboo Forest with Magna, she is suddenly summoned to the cocoon world and gets separated from Magna and friends.
During her search for Magna, she meets Kyle, and after curing his injury, he joins her.
Kyle (voiced by Yasunori Matsumoto)
The boss of the Kyle pirate family.
As result of an uproar over a pair of Magical Swords, he ends up shipwrecked on an island, where he meets Aty, someone qualified to use a Magical Sword. And in the midst of the island’s mystery and a fight against imperial forces, he is summoned to a different world. Accepting the situation that he’s in a different world, he begins looking for his companion.
Resi (voiced by Chie Sato)
The beast world of Metral. Because the source of his magical power is at a loss, he is considered half a man, and does only household chores.
Although in his original world, he was summoned by Toris and served as her Guardian Beast, he lost the majority of his power when he was summoned to this world, and more and more specailizes in doing household chores.
■ More Visitors and Mysterious Monsters
In Amu’s party, even more crashing light appeared. And there appeared Toris and Bulrell. Natsumi, who calls out the two people fighting, is surprised that in spite of meeting Toris for the first time, Toris knows who she is.
Comparing their stories, it is determined that the two people apparently came from Lyndbaum on different time axis.
Immediately after, the party is attacked by a monster it has never seen before (the Vanguard Spider), and they fight it off in cooperation with Toris and Bulrell. And after the battle is over, the enemy turns into unraveled thread and thats when they realize again they come from different Lyndbaums…
Toris (voiced by Ikue Kimura)
A descendant of the Kressment family, producers of Summon Weapons and cursed by the great Rhythmist.
After defeating Melgitos, she was on her way to the Taboo Forest with her allies.
When they crash land in the cocoon world, she and Nesty get separated.
While searching for Bulrell and Nesty, she meets Amu and company, and since they lack consistency, she pulls the party her way, acting like an older sister, even though that’s rare for her.
Bulrell (voiced by Daisuke Sakaguchi)
A Demon King of Sapureth who due to the condition of his Link with Toris as her Guardian Beast, takes the form of a child.
He was first displeasured by this, but he now has a favorable impression of his master Toris and accompanies her on her journey as mutual friends.
He can take his form as a demon king if the Link is broken, but because he lacks power in this world, he is unsteady even fighting flat-out.
■ Kanon and Nesty
After witnessing an explosion from a distant area, Amu’s party hurries towards the site. Doing battle there was Nesty, Toris’ senior and summons master of the Machine World.
Joined by the nurse robot Cunnon who he got to know along the way, Nesty searches for Toris. Along their journey they are accompanied by demons and they fall unwillingly into battle with a raging half-man, half-oni named Kanon.
Kanon is a young boy who is also a friend of Natsumi and Cassis. Natsumi knows the gentleness in Kanon’s heart and tries to persuade it out of him, but his true spirit won’t return to him.
Amu notices the presence of a thread on Kanon’s back and gets an ominous feeling, but what are his true colors…
Cunnon (voiced by Kanako Tateno)
A nurse robot (Frarzen) from the Machine World. Through the love of Rexx and company, an unfinished emotional program was developed for Cunnon in hopes that it would feel more like a human being.
Cunnon functions as a medical care unit are good, but on the occasions when surrounded only by armaments, output isn’t able to occur and it goes into back-up mode.
While moving about to grasp the situation, they encountered the troubled Cunnon and various medical care is attempted, but…
Nesty (voiced by Hikaru Midorikawa)
Nesty comes to Lyndbaum from the Machine World and is the last descendant of the Veigers Lail clan.
He was on his way to the Taboo Forest with his younger pupil Toris after defeating Melgitos, but he was summoned to another world and separated from Toris.
Nesty is reliable, but his strong suspicions invite discord among his friends. On the other hand, he is polite to his elders, but he has no mercy for his impolite comrades.
Kanon (voiced by Kanako Tateno)
A member of the delinquent group known as Obtuse and from Arozaid. He has sworn a pledge of brotherhood to his friend and leader Banossa, and the pair trust in each other mutually.
A half-human, half-oni, when he’s angry he loses himself and goes wild as a demon.
While he usually has a kind personality, when he is summoned to this world, while looking for Banossa, he is entangled by an evil “thread” and loses control of his demon blood.
