- This article is about the manga chapter. For the spiritual object, see Pandora's Box
The volume was released on the 25th of May 2009 in Japan. Its ISBN is 978-4-7580-5415-7.
The ceremony to shift Pandora's Box had begun as planned, and everything went smoothly, under the watchful eye of the Pope. It is then revealed that young Teito’s body was in the coffin which Verloren’s body had been shifted into and therefore the body had been given a soul. The Pope then comments on how Teito has a beautiful soul.
However, Fea Kreuz arrived to save Teito and realised that the Pope was the one who had the idea of abducting Tiashe. The Pope explains that he had grown tired of his title and if he were to revive Verloren, by giving his (Verloren’s) body a beautiful soul, then he would obtain knowledge beyond that of even the seven ghosts. At this point, Teito realises that the Pope was being controlled by the Shadow Man.
Krom was unable to separate Verloren’s body; it had become one with Teito’s soul. Tiashe had begun to serve as Pandora’s box and the revival had failed. However, in order to stop Verloren from consuming Tiashe’s soul, Krom needed to implant the Eye of Mikhail into Tiashe’s body to stop him from being devoured.
Teito needed to be evacuated, but Krom was unable to leave with his son. Kreuz promises to protect Tiashe with his life and gives him the identity of ‘Teito Klein’. Whilst the Eye of Mikhail was being implanted in Teito, the Barsburg Empire launched an attack on Raggs and in Teito's desperation, the process was completed quickly. Teito promises to fight to the end with everyone and Mikhail agrees to his master’s sentiments.
Teito wakes up within himself again to find that the cage in front of him had broken and that a huge hand was reaching out in order to grab him. Before it could touch him, Teito wakes up, to find that Frau had read and experienced the same things as Teito by looking into his soul and the two of them are shocked by what they have seen and what they have learnt; especially the fact that Teito is Pandora’s box.
