The episodes of 07 Ghost were created by Studio DEEN. Directed by Nobuhiro Takamoto , the anime premiered on Chiba TV on April 6, 2009. The series uses two pieces of theme music: 'Aka no Kakera' by Yuuki Suzuki is the opening theme, while 'Hitomi no Kotae' by Noria is the ending theme.
After passing the first exam, Teito and Hakuren are allowed to watch the others with examiner Lance. They all watch Wade and Kyle fumble at the last challenge when Wade's greedy nature makes him fail, and also see Liam and Ouida pass when they both run through the door of the defeated. Teito and Hakuren learn that the old men they helped before are in fact Former Assistant Archbishops who tagged along to assess the progress of the participants.
Meanwhile, Labrador senses a dark threat as the military advances towards the church. Teito and Hakuren go to Razette, the noel mermaid, as the Former Assistant Archbishops suggested, and she takes them to an inner sanctuary where Teito gets to see his father, the King of Raggs, and 'father', the priest who raised him. He is told to never forget who he is, the Prince of Raggs Kingdom.
Afterwards, they hurry back to the courtyard where bishop Lance is impatiently waiting for them. The second part of the exam is a challenge to face their inner demons inside a room. They pass when they come out the other door. Hakuren starts off by defeating a gigantic Kor and Teito faces his biggest enemy: Ayanami.
