- This article is about the manga chapter. For the character, see Millea Klein
The chapter was released on the 25th August 2012 in Japan, and has so far not been released in North America. Its ISBNs are unknown.
The Barsburg Emperor reveals to Ea and the two bearers his past with the stranger, who called himself a 'Warmonger', and used his power to corrupt Wolfram with plans of invading and destroying the Kingdom of Raggs. The Shadow Man poisons Millea Klein, making her fall into a deep sleep as Barsburg blames the stealing of Pandora's Box on the Kingdom of Raggs. Thus the war commences.
After Krom dies during the war, Emperor Wolfram realizes Millea will only hate him once she awakens and may never forgive him for what he's done. Because of this, he is reluctant to use the antidote and revive her, and she remained in her comatose state.
Wolfram Barsburg then reveals the whereabouts of Millea and the antidote to Teito, the latter administering it to his mother. Millea awakens to a tearful Tiashe. As Teito struggles to tell her that the man she loved was no longer with them, she tells him of a dream where she had reached a garden and said farewell to a lot of people she used to know including Tiashe's father, meaning she already knows what had happened. As the two (Teito and Millea) revel in their reunion, Ouka uses her power and heals Wolfram's injuries, and Wolfram apologizes to Ouka with all his heart.
Meanwhile, Hyuuga talks to Ayanami about the last key to Pandora's Box. Ayanami dismisses Hyuuga's thoughts as idle chitchat, and proceeds towards where the Bearers are with Ea, Millea and the Emperor. Despite warnings from those around him, he heads for the door with a specific intention in mind.
